We have chatted for a while about the 4 lbs you’ve gained. It’s not an issue with me at all, of course. I love you any way you are. But you are so conscious of your weight and figure and beauty. Even more than other women.
But when I playfully said “I can see where those 4 lbs have gathered” I immediately said to self –
“Well Marty, that is probably the dumbest thing you have done in a very long time.”
To my utter shock you just batted your long eyelashes, smiled and said “Oh, you can? I’m working on it”. No drama, no reverberations. A beautiful email to me later.
No wonder I love you.
