Would He Lie?

This morning getting ready for work, I was standing in front of the full-length mirror in the bathroom, inspecting things to see if I could get away without wearing the fat-squeezing, breath-sucking body shaper. 

“Do I look lumpy or enormous in these pants?” I asked Big Daddy, who happened to be sitting on the toilet.

Without missing a beat, or come to think of it, even looking up, he said, “Nope.”

Then I thought about what I just asked him.  Would I want him to tell me that I looked fat and lumpy even if I did?  He doesn’t always do and say the right things–he’s a  guy for God’s sake–but he’s not stupid.

I went back to my dresser, pulled out the body shaper and put it on.  Better safe than sorry.

    He, he. The loaded question. Men hate being asked because it’s a lose-lose situation. If they say “no”, they’re lying. If they say “yes”, then we get upset.

    I like my hubby’s response:

    “Is there anymore beer in the house?”

    Smart hubby you got, Myra. What was I trying to do–set myself up for a rotten day? Because he could have told me the truth.

    At least he’s well trained. Once, we were lying in bed, face to face, and Adam said, “You look kind of. . . puffy.” Puffy?!! The nerve of him to go around spewing the truth. It was awhile before he had either clean socks or an orgasm inside another human being.

    LOL – he sure has mastered the correct answer to those types of questions! Who can blame them? The repurcussions of saying we look lumpy, fat or anything other than fabulous just aren’t worth it.

    Unless you just have a wife that is totally free and you can each speak the truth to each other. Hmm.
