topic is What's Really Sexy?
OK, this post will probably contain TMI about Jaybird, but this is the Bird's Nest and y'all should know by now that's how I roll... What's really sexy? What does "romantic" mean to you? When you think about romance do you immediately picture a bottle of nice wine and an intimate dinner for two by candle light? I used to. Now, not so much.
|Instead of us spending a lot of money to go out to eat tonight, my little Faith offered to re-create this yummo dinner|
The Husband and I had at a wedding. Gotta love that kid!!
I'm going to be perfectly honest. Whenever I try to be sexy or romantic, it turns into a fast disaster. For example, when I first got married, I bought this "sexy" Victoria's Secret lacey teddy thing that cost me a fortune. (Still can't believe that little scrap of material that barely covered my who-haas cost so much) Anyway, I really wanted to try to look sexy for my man. In the short while I was waiting for The Husband to come to bed, that stupid expensive lace started to itch. And itch. And itch. That dumb teddy gave this Bird a rash so freaking bad you would not believe. It felt and looked like I had poison ivy. The itching was insane!! The only thing that helped was covering all of my affected "areas" in an inch thick layer of cortisone cream. How sexy is that? There have been other incidents over the years, that ended equally disastrous. I'll spare you the details. My point remains the same, whenever I try to be sexy, no good ever comes of it. Fifteen years into my marriage and if there is one thing I've learned, there's no need for me to try to be sexy.
If I am covered head to toe in flannel feety pajamas, have a zit the size of Texas on my forehead or am nine months pregnant and ginormous, nothing stops The Husband from coming after me. He will chase me around the house humming the "Benny Hill" theme song until he catches me. I consider myself a lucky Bird. I know TheHusband loves me and wants me, no matter how bad a hot mess I am.
|This is for all of you too young to know who Benny Hill was, and what I'm talking about.|
My husband is a pretty good-looking guy. Especially in his uniform. A lot of women find him attractive and like to tell me "he's hot". Although I agree, he is handsome, I'll tell you this: he NEVER looks more sexy than when he is washing the dishes. Now, that's hot. Bow chicka wow-wow hot. Because when he helps do the mundane things around the house, it shows me how much loves me, much more than him handing me two dozen roses, a box of chocolate or buying me an expensive dinner out.
So, again, I have to ask: What's sexy mean to you? What is your definition of romance? And single people, what is your take on what's really sexy?
