The Other Side

So I was thinking... for the benefit of any future male readers it would be great to include the male perspective from time to time. I decided to ask my hubby to help me. Here is how it went.

Me: Honey, I am so excited! I have this really great blog set up where I can spout off about being a housewife and all the shit that goes with it.

Hubby: (Staring at the television) Uh Huh....

Me: Can I talk to you about it?

Hubby: (Because he is of course well trained, looks away from the TV, and gives me his full attention) Sure!

Me: OK so I am thinking I should occasionally post a male perspective.

Hubby: O.K.... Sounds good

Me: So basically, I want you to complain about me on my blog.

Hubby: (Just looks at me) What?

Me: You know, find faults of mine and complain about them from the male perspective.

Hubby: (doing the safe thing and staying silent)

Me: So what do you think?

Hubby: Is this a trick?

Me: No I am totally serious.

Hubby: (Stares at me)

Me: Please?

Hubby: I don't know......

So I decided to let him think on it. As impatient as I am I was eagerly awaiting a response while at the same time trying not to bug him to give me one.

Eventually he came through!

Hubby: So I was thinking about what you said earlier about your blog.....

Me: And......

Hubby: And... this will totally be like a camaraderie-type thing, right? Like when you and I joke around with each other. No offense taken, right?

Me: Absolutely! Because as you know I will be writing about you too.

Hubby: OK... sounds like fun.

Ha Ha Ha! Sucker!

Stay tuned........
