TMI Tuesday: January 10, 2017 ~ Geez! I don’t know

1. True or False: Falling in love is a serious thing to do? Explain.
~ You should take it seriously because falling in love is when your heart rules your head. If you're lucky you fall in love with the love of your life and everything is swell. But sometimes you fall in love with someone who doesn't deserve your affection. They can be selfish, manipulative, and/or a taker. Or a loser. Usually you don't find this stuff out until much much later by which time you're lucky if you only get your heart broken. Some people find themselves stuck with children they don't want or with a douchebag/bitch who takes them for everything they've got.

2. Finish this sentence: I never knew _____ like this.
~ I never knew love like this before.
Sorry, but I used to work in the entertainment biz so I can't help but think of this classic:

3. Would you rather swim with sharks that you know have recently bitten people or swallow live worms? Why did you make that choice?
~ In the time it took me to think about it I realised I could do either, assuming I'm being held at gunpoint and forced to choose. If I had to choose I'd swim with the sharks since I assume they've already 'eaten' and wouldn't want me. If that's not the case I'd have no compunction eating the live worms - not that I would enjoy it.

imagine this guy in swim shorts, water cascading down his body...
4. What is beautiful and most appealing about you?
~ My wife says I have a good tongue. She also says I'm a great father. I'm not sure if my daughter agrees, but I'll take it! I used to be quite handsome, honest! People women still say I have a nice smile (when I smile).

5. What time is it RIGHT NOW? What were you doing before you started to play TMI Tuesday?
~ It's 6:23 AM and I am the only one awake in my house, so it's a great time to play TMI Tuesday. Why am I up so early? I dunno, but it's annoying. I miss the blackout curtains we had in the old house.

Bonus: Are you a little bit damaged? How so?
~ Yes, definitely. I had sex not once but twice last week. That should be a good thing, right? Well it was, for sure, but the day after the second episode I was feeling rather negative. I was reminded that on both occasions I had only 'got lucky' because my wife had been reading porn. Her libido had been sparked by the stories she'd read, not me. Am I being too greedy to want her desire to be fired up by me? And to top it off my wife was also in an antsy mood - with me, and for no reason. I've seen this behavior before and it's something I attribute to her 'lovers remorse' (<---see Q4 in link). 
Last night we had dinner with another couple and apropos of nothing my wife told the other wife about how she had been at the gym and a young 20-something guy emerged from the pool, rising like an Adonis, and walked past her and sat on the bench next to her, still dripping wet. I had no idea that not needing or using a towel was a thing but for my wife it seemed an important detail. He just sat there, talking to the dude next to him, as the water trickled down his chiselled chest. My wife just sat there on the next bench, trying to take a picture on her phone, but wisely she thought the better of it.
Seriously this anecdote came out of nowhere and I could not understand why my wife bought it up - other than to let this new couple know my wife goes to the gym (when I clearly do not) and she appreciates hot young athletic flesh (which I am clearly not).
Maybe that's why I woke up so early this morning - I'm depressed?

Double Bonus: This just in... Brazilians could increase your risk of contracting STIs?

  1. Ah January,i'm always depressed in January. You are getting up early, whereas i can't seem to get my arse out of bed!
    Being damaged is very normal, how you deal with it is what counts...

    1. I would stay in bed if I could but someone has to attend to my daughter. Sometimes I go back to bed later in the day and have a power nap for 20 minutes.
