Mr. Petals

I read my post 'Empowered" aloud to my husband. Afterward I said.. 'SO, Does this inspire you to get healthy along with me?' Without missing a beat he replied- 'No, It makes me want to go to a casino and gamble, smoke and drink.'
Did I ever mention I am living with a comedian? In this case, more appropriately, a wise ass? It seems everyday this man has a way of cracking me up. Some times at my expense. He often jokes to point out the craziness he sees in me. He has many great qualities this man of mine, but I have to say his humor is as endearing to me as his considerateness.
This comedian is the same man who cleans our main bathroom daily. He is a very clean guy, but trust me, it is not his top priority that the bathroom gets cleaned daily. He does this for me, to lessen my work load. He also attacks the shower, tub & tile each weekend. Many times I've come out of the shower, to find that this comedian has ironed my clothes already. Every night after dinner, he insists on washing anything that doesn't fit in the dishwasher, telling me- You did enough today. After 28 years of marriage this funny guy still insists on opening the car door for me. Even if we aren't going out together.. He volunteers to warm up my car and often walks with me out to the car. We live in suburbia! It's not because the driveway is a dangerous place. All these gestures of love and caring equal one word to My comedian. Foreplay. His theory is foreplay begins in the morning and should last all day. The loving calls from work. The cards and flowers for no reason. The amazing foot rubs.
Flattery, Pampering, Considerateness. Foreplay. Foreplay. Foreplay. It doesn't bother me at all if 'one thing' is his underlying inspiration. I think that being happy with that 'one thing' has helped us have a successful marriage for so long. I also think even if it wasn't his inherent ambition, our consideration and communication with each other would have still resulted in the intimacy and long time love that we share. If I read this one aloud to him, It may embarrass him or flatter him, it may lead to another wise crack, ultimately it will lead to 'one thing' or another.♥ ♥

Okay, so when he's done at your house, can you send him over here to teach my hubby a thing or two? :D
My moving poem was on the prospect of moving, we don't know yet. Hubby got offered a job in BC and we find out next week if they want him for sure and then he'll decide if he'll take it. Which means leaving us for 6 to 10 months to get settled and then me doing everything down here to get there...
So, that was my panic poem...LOL

Two, inspiring sweethearts...that's what you and your man are. Humor and lots of love are the strongest foundation for a marriage anyone could ask for. For Chris and I, add our walks to that mix...because during our walks we talk out anything and everything. Plus, we stay heart-fit if we hoof it rather than mosey.
