Please, just hold me...
One evening last week, my wife and I were getting into bed. Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she says, "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me." I said, "WHAT?!" So she says the words that I and every other husband on the planet dreads. She explains that I'm not in tune with her emotional needs as a woman. I'm thinking, "What was her first clue?" I finally realized nothing is going to happen that night, so I went to sleep.
The next day, we went shopping at a big, unnamed department store. I walked around while she tried on three very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take, so I told her to take all three. She then tells me she needs matching shoes worth $200 each to which I say, "OK."
And then we go to the Jewelry department, where she gets a pair of diamond earrings. Let me tell you - she was so excited! She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck, but I don't think she cared. I think she was testing me when she asked for a tennis bracelet because she doesn't even play tennis. I think I threw her for a loop when I told her it was OK.
She was sexually excited from all of this and you should have seen her face when she said, "I'm ready to go, let's go to the cash register." I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, "No, honey. I don't feel like buying all this stuff now."
You should have seen her face - it went completely blank. Then I said, "Really honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while." Just when she had a look like she was going to kill me, I added, "You must not be in tune with my financial needs as a man."
