Yesterday I went to church. Just like I do every Sunday.
For some reason being married to a Pastor makes that a “must.” Can’t imagine why.
But yesterday I decided to wear a really pretty pearl bracelet that I got as a Christmas gift. Or maybe it was a New Year’s gift. No wait. I’m getting this all wrong. It was a gift to tell me how awesome I am. THAT’S what it was.
At any rate, I wore my pearl bracelet and worked it even more with a pearl necklace and earrings. My makeup looked particularly good as well (if’n I do say so myself) and I was feeling pretty good about myself.
After church we come home and I say to Lazy Dad, “Do you want to say anything to me?” Which is (I’m sure) the statement that makes him cringe the most, so I like to throw it out there every once in a while.
“Uh, I love you?” He says unsure of how to respond.
“Uh, you look nice?”
“Well, I don’t look nice NOW.” I said, referring to the Wisconsin sweat pants and church t-shirt I was currently sporting having changed after church. “You’re not doing this right. You were SUPPOSED to tell me how pretty I looked today.” Since that’s what going to church is all about anyway, right?
But it got me to thinking. Thinking of four little words I’ve yet to hear The Lazy Dad say to me.
You looked pretty today.
Remind me to put that into his speaking repertoire, mkay?
But then that got me thinking of other four little words he’s never said to me. You know, just for fun. Because I’m sure this is totally fun for him to read right now.
This first one you’ll understand right away since I posted about it recently, but here’s a list of four words I’ve never heard come out of The Lazy Dad’s mouth….
- Tonight’s dinner was awesome!
- You look so skinny.
- You totally complete me. (I had to make that one four words)
- I’ll rub your feet.
- Let’s go to Hawaii!
- You rock at housekeeping!
- Your thighs don’t jiggle.
- Here’s the credit card.
- Spend all you want.
- I’m lucky you married me.
Well, okay, that last one has five words, but still.
So now that Lazy Dad has seen this list (because he inevitably will) I’ll be ready and waiting to cross these off when they get said to me, honey!
Oh, and don’t feel pressured to do it in order. Mix it up a little. Be spontaneous. That will give you bonus points.
Oh, and since I had to tell you what to say, none of it will really count anyway, so you might as well not worry about points at all.
