I think–after 32 1/2 years of marriage–I’ve finally figured it out.
No, it’s not THAT. (I love the 5 Wives cleaning company motto: Everything but THAT).
It was right there in front of me all the time! While I’m trying to work harder, make more money, help get out of debt, it was there every day. That casual question as he went out the door to work . . . What’s for dinner?
When he called during the day, asking “What’s for dinner?”
When he came home at night tired and starving and I hadn’t even decided yet. It’s FOOD. That’s what men want after 30+ years. OK, they might want THAT too but only if you had dinner ready.
And THAT’s all I’m going to say about THAT.
