Oh sure, we have heard of the story of people letting themselves go after marriage. The whole wearing of the sweatpants 24/7, the greasy hair, couple of pounds here and there, no make up face, oversized t-shirt with holes all over the place. I have been with my wife for 11 years (married 3 and a half) and that has not happened. She is still the same funny, vibrant, gorgeous woman I met at 19 years old… even after having two kids. I don’t know how she does it. Yup, I admit it, I still walk into the room sometimes and say “dayum! that’s my wife!”
However, she may have found the one thing to completely make me want to exit the room and curl up in a ball. We are currently into round 2 of the sickness season at my house. We have completed round one as of this week, ending with me. Well, the kids picked something up, and Kinsey once again has a sinus infection, complete with all the extras it comes with. I think my doctors office is super exited to have us as patients, because Kinsey has gone to the doctor about 6 times in the last 3 weeks… no joke. Yesterday, she made another visit. She was given another prescription to try and kill off the infection.
We did the family dinner, put the babies down, and she headed off to the pharmacy to get her medicine. I still don’t get why it takes them about an hour to get some pills, put them in a bottle, and hand them to you. She gets home, sits on the couch with me, as I watch some legit pairs figure skating action, and starts reading. What did she start reading? The side effects… which were extremely graphic. The words: discharge, moist, mucus, vomiting, and diarrhea were among the all-star lineup of potential side effects. It was so bad, I had to make her stop. So ladies, if you are not feeling well this valentines day, make your man a recording of your medicine’s potential side effects in sexy voice… that will get you out of anything that is expected of you from him 🙂 Good times!
