This week's books is "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert. You guys, I kept my promise to post - for once! Click here to check it out!
Last night, as CB was getting into bed, he grabbed the back scratcher and started going at it.
Me: "You have an itch?"
CB: "Yeah, just dry skin."
Me: "Did you put lotion on it?"
Me: "Do you want me to put lotion on it?"
CB: "No, then I'll have lotion on my back."
Me, staring at him: "Right. So your back wouldn't itch anymore."
CB: "Yeah, but then it'd just be on my back."
Me: "How much lotion are you putting on? Too much if you still feel it once you RUB IT IN."
CB, laughing: "I don't want to feel the lotion on my skin."
Me: "That makes zero sense. That's like saying 'I'd take a shower, but I don't want to feel the water.' The water eventually drys or absorbs into your skin. Just like lotion."
CB: "Are you done?"
Me: "I'll never be done."
CB, rolling over: "This I know."
And now, the Video of the Week! I made CB a sappy Valentine's Day gift that incorporated this song, so obviously it reminds me of him, and since I have been giving him a hard time all week/life, I thought I'd dedicate it to him so that when he brings up how I brought up our lotion conversation later I can be like "Right, but then immediately afterwards, I dedicated a song to you."
This is how you do marriage, people.
