This past weekend, while PMS-ing I was getting dressed for some company we were having over for the holiday weekend for a pool party. As I was putting on my bathing suit, I asked my husband if he thought I was fat? I knew after the words came out of my mouth that the answer he would give me would be wrong, no matter what the answer was, maybe with one exception. But I asked him anyway and waited for the answer.
My husband said that he loved me no matter what I looked like. Well in women language that really translates to, “yes honey I think you are overweight, but I am not going to tell you cause you will get upset so how can you get upset if I say I love you?”. Just when he thought he was in the safety zone… I was upset. I said “I can’t believe you think I am fat”. He said thats not what I said, I said, “You did not say no honey you are not fat”. So naturally you think I am fat. Obviously this conversation went no place, and I was upset and he was upset and we had a crummy day and it was all my fault. But after I made such a big about it, it’s hard to say I’m sorry. 😉
The correct answer for you guys out there, even if you have to lie (of course don’t let her know you are lying) is…..Honey, you are gorgeous, beautiful and really hot, of course you are not fat! Well you get the picture. if you stray from my suggestion, consider yourself warned!
