Well it happened, I let her out! The wife is in Ohio for 4 days, 4 of the longest days of my life! I mean that in the most sincere way possible. I mean without her I smell bad (dirty clothes), go hungry (I can’t flip my own eggs), and I can’t sleep (because the bed is cold!).
The bed is the one place I need my wife and no, not because of “that”… ok maybe “that” too, but it’s 70-30 on the way it falls. As it pertains to keeping me warm, my wife is good at that. If she is not there I get cold and then I wake up.
She is very needed, but mainly because I am a barbarian without her. I run around the house naked grunting and knocking over things. I can’t find anything in the house and everything is breaking. I actually surprise myself at my lack of ability at keeping the house. When she is home I run like a well oiled machine. Without her I am like a pair of old rusty nuts that just can’t get moving.
My bed used to be inviting and now all of a sudden I want to stay up late and fall asleep on the couch. The bed is not warm and inviting, with the smell of citrus from her shampoo in the sheets. I can’t sleep but with the dog, and that’s no sleep at all. The dog is always licking me and changing positions trying to spoon me all the time. Wait a minute, that sounds like my wife.
When she gets back I will sleep like a baby, all nestled up in my covers. And the dang dog will be upstairs with the boys. What’s funnier still is the fact that when my wife is in the bed I never cuddle with her as I am always turned away, but as soon as she leaves the bed for the boys I am awake again.
So what’s going to happen is I will not let my wife go away without me again. I am just not the same without her she puts e-y in Terry… I don’t know what that means.
