As far as my life in general goes, the last year or so has been good to me… But as for the size of my ass? Not so much.
Unless that is, you’re Mr. Kaos.
You see in the last year I’ve gained 15 pounds. That doesn’t make me fat, but it makes me very uncomfortable in my own skin.
I know I don’t eat as well as I should.
Mr. Kaos has gained a few pounds as well, and while he isn’t fat either… he also doesn’t need to gain any weight, so today when he was getting ready to come home we had a chance to chat for the first time all day. I mentioned on the phone that we both needed to work on our eating habits and I wanted to sit down together and talk about menu plans and a healthier diet. His reply?
“Hey I’m not the one going to the gelato shop everyday”
Resisting the urge to hang up on him I spat into the phone “I don’t want to talk to you right now” and then I hung up the phone as nicely as I could and finished cutting up apples for our daughter. I took a deep breath, calmed down, reminded myself that everyone’s an asshole at sometime, even me, and my phone rang.
“I’m very sorry, that was really a stupid thing to say, I don’t know why I said it”
Fine. he apologized… I got over. When he got home he apologized again. It’s all okay, we’re good.
Later we were sitting at the table and we started to talk about our dietary habits and the fact that I would like to loose the weight that I’ve gained… his response?
“You mean you expect me to give up all that booty just for your long term health goals?”
My man, gotta love him.
