Momlogic just ran an article about a guy who said yes to everything his wife asked of him for a month. That’s a little “toys in the attic” crazy for me, but the idea was cute. My husband and I just turned it into a game, where we each picked three wishes we’d beg of the other one, and then tried to guess what we’d be asked to do.
Here’s my wish list (don’t read this mom, it has SEX in it):
- oral sex!
- you do all the laundry – including folding it
- make me put away my work and play with you at least once a week – play a game/do a craft/see a play – do something that will make us laugh together.
What did he guess? He guessed that I wanted him to stop cooking onions, start leaving the house on time in the morning and do a better job keeping the kids out of my hair when I’m working. Uh, no. Oral sex, honey. I’m telling you, it’s a free pass for a multitude of sins. Including cooking onions in my house.
His wish list for me: let him sleep late in the morning, and stop putting my shoes on the dining table. I would like to state for the record that we do not even have a dining table, and I do not know what he’s talking about.
