Put a ring on it

Scene from our bathroom this morning.

Husband: Michael will be coming soon. Better hurry getting ready.

Me: I am hurrying.

Husband: You look nice. Is that for Michael?

Me: No honey, for you. And in case I burn the house down and the fireman are called.

Husband: I remember when you were this excited about me. We used to talk a lot. About everything. Like buying an iPad. We should talk about these things more.

Me: You should wear your wedding band.

Husband: Marriage is not about a piece of jewelry. It’s about communication. Wish you told me before you bought the iPad.

Me: I would have, if you wore your ring. And I was going to make you a latte, but now I changed my mind.

Husband: Fine.

Me: Fine.

I made one latte for Michael and one for Husband. He dusted off his wedding band, wore it and kissed me good bye before going to work.

Marriage is strange. And by strange I mean wonderful.

    This sounds oddly like some conversations I have with my husband.

      My grandpa said the ring blocks oxygen supply to the brain. Think that’s why most of my conversation sound odd. I do feel for my Husband, just don’t tell him.

    When my husband and I are home we never where our wedding rings. And occasionally,one of us will forget to put it on when we go out. There was a little stint when he kept forgetting and then I got on his ass about it! Lol. Marriage is crazy and awesome. Fun post!

      Mine doesn’t wear it for work, safety or something. Between you and me I don’t really care, but I like ammunition. Always need that to fight, just ask the cowboys…

    I’m glad you hyperlinked Michael in your post. Before I read who he is, I thought you and your husband had a Big Love thing going on over there.

      Each to their own. We are very boring and suburban around here. And the older I get the more into it I get. How naughty is that, I thrive on being average on a good day…

    My husband actually can’t wear his ring to work because he works around machinery. But still I tease him about how he’s just trying to get the ladies.

      To be honest, sending your husband to the park with kids and a wedding band is a sure way for him to score the ladies. So fondling machinery wit no ring, as we now, is no threat. But I can’t launch a huge rant about him spending time with our son. That would be contra productive :)

    Ha! Love the parallel conversations going on here!
    All good in the end! You got your iPaD and he put the darn ring on

    So familiar. Although ours go the other way–he’s better at wearing I than I am. About once a week, I forget.

    Ha! Loved this.

    iPad conversation? What’s next – checking in with him every time you want a new pair of shoes?

    Men are so silly.

      Indeed! if that was the case we would never stop calling them at work, right?

    Definitely like some of the conv. in my home! But…. I still can’t get my ring on over my knuckle after my third child. :(

      Don’t worry. Us girls need no rings. Three little ones following you around all day is a sure sign to any man who wants to buy you a cup of coffee.

    My husband has not taken his ring off since we got married. He takes as a personal offense if I suggest that he can take it off for a bit LOL. Likewise, I am never allowed to take mine of, even if I want to. My mom and sister don’t ever wear their rings. Needless to say, my husband is appalled by that daily.
