Time to be Invisible
My wife and I have 2 children; both boys. I have a sick sense of humor and that is what my wife loves about me or so she says. I can't say that I have tried to buy her flower, wine or chocolate. I guess I find it funny to playfully agitate her. I don't take things too seriously so I try to keep all issue light with messing around. I have found that with my wife it was rough at first but she now she seems to enjoy it. I have been known to take that extra large snickers bar that she bought at the store and split it between me and my two boys. When she is tearing the fridge up looking for her snickers fix we are heading for the door to the basement. Once it is apparent she isn't going to get her fix she comes a hunting us. Some of you may see this as cruel an unusual punishment it really isn't because we always make sure we have a spare so she doesn't go balistic. Once she takes time to herself she will reflect on how funny it wasn't and still find a good laugh in it. I am sure there are some red face women reading this thinking poor girl but you need to understand as she refers to me being a baby when I am sick that is her time to get even. We have a wonderful relationship and we can find humor in just about everything.
