I don't know if I've mentioned it, but lately I have been eating a LOT. Not necessarily unhealthy food, just extremely large quantities of food are going into my mouth on an hourly basis. Part of it is the running, but I think part is also I've just formed the habit of eating hourly and need to break it.
I was discussing my out-of-control eating with Blair the other night. The discussion was nearing a close as we walked down the stairs when from behind me I heard Blair humming "Bah-boom, bah-boom, bah-boom" as I walked down the stairs.
"Excuse me," I said, stopping mid-tread to turn and stare at him. "But are you actually saying 'Bah-boom, bah-boom, ba-boom' for every step I take?"
"Uh, no!" he said, startled. "I was, uh, saying that about myself. Yes. About me. Needing to lose weight. See?" And he grabbed his belly and started bah-booming again as he walked past me.
Uh-huh. Okay, we've been married almost 14 years and I'm all for being comfortable with one another, but there have got to be limits. And I'm pretty sure calling out earthshaking sounds as your wife walks downstairs in front of you crosses some etiquette line, somewhere.
Is there not some sort of remedial husband course I can send him to for a good polishing?
