“Last night you did something you haven’t done in a long time. You were standing by the door talking to the kids and you looked over and subtlety winked at me. My heart skipped a beat. I had a bit of puppy love.”
Yeah, that was said today. There seems to be new developments on a daily basis now. A look here, a touch there, a kiss WITH a look.
Things are looking up. They’re looking up in a major way.
When the crap hit the fan on that fateful September day when she disclosed her distaste for sexual relations I began growing a beard. 2 months went by. My Bride finally asked when would shave it. “As soon as I think we have made significant progress in our marriage” was my answer.
Today I shaved. She was floored when she saw it. As we finished an errand, she finally asked, “Why did you shave?” I got to tell her that I thought we had made significant progress.
We shared a smile. That was when she told me of my enduring wink.
THINGS I HAVE LEARNED
• Be nice- good things follow
• Be kind- it might come back to you
• Make an attempt- the favor will be returned
As always, I suggest that others already know these things. I didn’t. The Good Doctor tells me that’s a function of my sex addiction. I get so self-absorbed, or have been all my life, those things were never learned. In my case they were also never taught.
