The Non-Mushy "I Love My Husband" List
In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm going to write some sweet things about my husband. He puts up with a lot of slander to his name due to my sadistic sense of humor. So here are the reasons that I put up with his sh*t... I mean... why I REALLY REALLY LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART.
1. He cooks
And he's damn good at it.
2. He gives me massages
He usually uses them as a segue to having something of his own "massaged," but he gets an E for effort for the massages.
3. He gets an A+++++++++++++ infinity for what comes after the massage
4. He's a great dad
5. He fixes things before I ask him
I have a habit of looking at things, such as the leaking shower door, and think "Hm, that sucks, we need to fix that (we meaning Eric)" and then I walk away and start thinking about The Voice or Adam Levine or how Adam Levine should wear shirts less often or how much I want a piece of chocolate. And I've forgotten all about the shower door that needs to be fixed. Until the next time I walk into the bathroom and go "Hm, I forgot about the shower door leaking, we need to fix that (we meaning Eric)." But Eric will look at the leaking shower door and think "Hm, I need to fix that." That afternoon he'll stop at Home Depot on his way home from work and buy whatever you use to fix leaking shower doors and voila, it's fixed before I even get home. So, yeah, I love and admire that about him.
And that concludes my Non-Mushy Valentine's List of Reasons That I Love My Husband. There are plenty of other reasons but I'm not allowed to tell people that he enjoys cuddling or watches romantic comedies without complaining.
ERIC: This is WAY better than a Hallmark card, so consider yourself carded. Also, I really don't feel like stopping at Walgreens after soccer practice. And I told the world that you get an A+++++++++ at that thing that all men want to be praised for, so really, YOU owe ME. Diamonds. Big ones. And I never have to buy a card for you again.
