On my way to work I heard some marriage advice on the radio. First I will give you the advice that I heard and then I will share with you my take on it.
A lady phoned in and said that her mother always said "If you're going to fight, strip to the waist first."
However, I think in a man's eyes, that would just lead him toward cutting the fight short and heading straight for the make up session. Correct?
Or maybe that's the point.
The DJ's laughed and commented "Oh, dear, they're hanging a little lower this year."
That ticked me off, I'm not going to lie.
So, I phoned in.
Yes. I'm one of those freaks who will phone into radio stations and talk to them like we are best pals. And, my friends, you think I over share on my blog???
You have no idea!
When they answered I told them I needed to "tweak" the advice a bit. My version:
"I think that she should go ahead and strip from the waist up, but he needs to strip from the waist down. No fight is truly fair unless they are BOTH laughing."
Well, they thought this was a riot.
I thought it was only just.
Really, he takes off his shirt to fight? So what?
Why should he tick me off and then get to look at my boobs? That's just dumb.
The ladies are the last things he's going to see.
Right my friends?
Perhaps the couple in this story took advantage of this advice. They look truly happy, don't they? (She may have to remove her PANTS now to make it a fair fight. I'm just sayin'.)
NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. - John Rocchio remembers his wife as a fetching young woman with an air of intelligence and a fine pair of legs. Amelia Rocchio recalls her husband as a handsome young man who didn't have much to say at first.
It was the start of something beautiful — and long-lasting.
Wed in a Roman Catholic church in Providence in 1923, the Rocchios marked their 82nd anniversary several months ago and could be the world's longest-married couple.
Have a great day everyone!
