Christmas ears...

Well I told Rick that I wanted plastic surgery for Christmas and his expression was a mixture of confusion and disgust when he asked me, "What are you talking about?"
I laughed and asked, "What do you think I'm talking about?"
He said, "Well it sure as heck isn't your nose." He likes my nose.
So I said, "So what do you think it is?"
He then shot me a look that said, "No way am I walking into that one."
I mean just imagine if he would have said, "I guess you might want plastic surgery on A, B, or C."
To which I might reply, "Why would you think that I might want surgery on A, B, or C? Do you think I need surgery on A, B, or C? Oh my gosh! You don't like my A, B, or C!" Then there might be great weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. That is if I were the weeping and wailing type, which I'm not, but still you can see why a man might shy away from such subjects.
Rick then gave me the standard smart husband answer, shall we say it together on three--1,2,3-- "YOU DON'T NEED ANY PLASTIC SURGERY. YOU'RE PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE."
You see a smart husband knows that a flattered wife is a happy wife so Rick makes it a point to compliment me quite regularly. What a guy.
I told him that yes I do need plastic surgery so he frowned and again asked me what I was talking about. I lifted my hair, wiggled my little earlobes and said, "I need to get these sewn."
Boy was he relieved, and very accommodating.
So it looks like I'm on my way to my first plastic surgery. Yippee skippy!

That is so funny... I hadn't read the other post yet so I was clueless on what surgery you were talking about!

when we first got married i gave Stacy a card that said "you always know the perfect three words to say to me" and inside: "You're not fat!" oh, yes, they are great when they don't walk into those traps we give them. It's funny just to do it to see what they will say sometimes! good for rick! glad you're getting your surgery! you need it! ha ha

Lynn says that you are a cold-hearted woman and Rick is very smart. There's a reason you've been married this many years.

You were way smart to bring it up like that. Rick was so relieved it wasn't something major, he was willing to let you have anything you wanted. Good luck with your surgery.

What- your ears sewn? What did I miss? Any one in the world - YOU DO NOT need plastic surgery... Maybe to help you look more like 30 instead of 21 so that I stop coveting your beauty!!!
