Sincere Slam

Wednesday night while pasting his toothbrush Tim looked at me in the mirror and in the kindest voice with out the slightest drop of irony/sarcasm said, “Your hair looks really nice. Did you shower today?”

Bam. Most Sincere Slam ever.

I laughed. Because really, what would you have done? You can’t say thank you to that. You can’t really take pride in the compliment. You definitely can’t be mad about it- no one is holding me hostage and telling me I can’t shower… So I laughed because it was funny.

I am going to try and be a better wife. By that I don’t mean be kinder, more empathetic to his free time needs or folding his laundry right as it comes out of the dryer so it doesn’t wrinkle. Nope. Being a better wife to me means that I am clean and smell decent.

For the record my hair is wet right now from showering after the gym.

Have you been insulted lately in a way that made you laugh? Have you insulted someone lately by accident? Tell me about it. It is Friday, I think we could all use a good laugh to kick off the weekend!
