Some Things to Say to a Comatose Husband

  • Don’t think this means you don’t have to take out the trash.

    At least our foreplay won’t be impacted.

    You lucky devil. You get to miss all the Democrats whining.

    This is the first time you haven’t snored on your back since we married.

    Should I spike the IV with a little Black Label?

    Hey, you will do anything to get out of sweeping up pine needles, won’t you?

    Honey, I love you.

  • I hope this is received well.

    I thought twice before posting it. I was not concerned about @RockChalkinTexas misunderstanding. If one has been married 20 years or more, I am confident it will be understood. I was concerned about younger readers.

    The nearly incomprehensible sorrows and difficulties life serves up to married couples over a long marriage makes them all learn the necessity of a sense of humor about the worst of trials and the awesome depth of meaning of “Honey, I love you.”

    It is difficult to explain the difference between the fiery passion of “I love you,” the first 10 years and the deep reservoir of shared experience and abiding respect and affection and devotion later on. It is the difference between Bill Self the day he started coaching at ORU and Bill Self the day he got his 600th win at KU times ten. Even if one could fully understand it one’s self, one knows looking back that one could not have understood it back at the beginning.

    Rock Chalk, @RockChalkinTexas! and hubby too!

    I think I have every live sporting event set to record on my DVR over the holidays.

    I will be working that FOREPLAY button on the remote constantly.

    Foreplay? check…

    Love is more than an emotion.

    Love is time, and the subsequent challenges and tests along the way.

    Love is knowledge… understanding… coming to terms… appreciation… respect… honor.

    The big step forward in a marriage, concerning love, is to get to the point where you can digest it beyond the emotions, connecting souls to a higher level.

    At least, this is what I have discovered in my life.
