So he'll sometimes say, "Hey, I'm coming home early. Better kick your boyfriend out."
And I'll sometimes say, "Well, you better tell your next wife that upfront."
Or, you know, some other much funnier infidelity or divorce based witticism.
But I was recently joking about how he's going to be too good for me when he comes home from this deployment and he'll need to find a better wife, and it hit a little close to home.
You see, he always loses weight while he is deployed and comes home looking all hot. And that's when he's only gone for a few months. This time he's going to be gone a year! Can you imagine how buff he'll be by next June?
He's already lost about thirty pounds and he's lifting. For some weird reason, he always puts his shirt on when we Skype, but his biceps and shoulders are looking...well..damn. (What's with that shirt thing anyway? What? Is he shy? Or...oooh...maybe he isn't sure he can keep it PG.)
So he teases me that he's going to look like the guy in "my" video by the time he gets home.
Yes, yes he is teasing me endlessly about the video I posted here. I don't help matters when I say things like, "Oh, hey you know the guy with the gun at the end? He's Australian!"
And then my husband says, "Yeah, I haven't actually done any research on your video."
So I just had to tell him today that the buff boy who grabs his junk in that video has posted a few more to YouTube.
No, I don't sound obsessed at all. Why do you mention it?
So I'd post the video for the short/buff boy's many adoring fans but I don't want to suffer through more teasing. Plus, the guy...well...it is a good thing he is pretty. I just want to pat his head and say, "Aw, shhhh, honey. Just stand there and show your abs. You don't need to talk."
I guess I better get to the freaking gym (I usually gain weight when my husband is deployed, but this time I'm just losing and gaining the same five pounds over and over again.) If my man is going to come home all drool worthy, I don't want to be the wife people point at and say, "What is he doing with her?"
Besides, all divorce joking aside, I want to keep my man to myself. He's cute and I can stand to listen to him talk.
*Oh, all right Here is the video. Buff boy gets wet.
Oh, dang! Speaking of my man...today is his birthday. Happy birthday, Honey. We love you!
