Reason #185663 To Love My Husband

The man gives me a 3 minute warning.

Tuesday night, we had invited two of his co-workers (they're married, to each other, and Canadian even) over for dinner at our home. I had never met them before and these situations tend to make me feel insanely a teensy bit anxious.

Knowing that I would be a smidge nervous about their arrival, he actually sent me the following text:
incoming: 3 min away
Three entire minutes to down some vodka take a chill pill powder my nose. Maybe it's not so much that he sent the warning that is to be loved, but rather the fact that he knew I would be in a frame of mind that would make such a warning helpful.

Either way, I think I'll keep him around.

Nice of him to send the alert and nice of you to fix the dinner! You work as a team.

BUT does he carry around an extra chill pill in his wallet wrapped in a tissue for those "just in case" moments?

yeah, he probably does.

because he's almost as awesome as tonya.

almost.

That is really sweet of him to do that and try to help you out.

I probably would've suggested we eat out but his warning text was good thinking.

Jeanie said...
