Of muscles and men

The other day, my kids were flexing their bicep muscles and showing off to each other. Not one to be outdone, I lifted my shirt sleeve and showcased my own muscles.

Or lack thereof.

The Husband laughed, in a polite sort of way, and felt the proffered muscle. Finding my arm lacking muscles of any sort, he started pinching around as if trying to solve the riddle of the missing bicep. What he did find in abundance, apparently, was a good deal of the squishy old lady flab underneath my arm.

The slight look of horror on his face told me he might not be too impressed.

I kindly offered to keep ALL my jiggly bits from his sight and touch, lest they gross him out and affect his ability to concentrate in meetings at work.

He suddenly found within himself and professed an undying love for ALL my body parts.

Especially the jiggly ones.

Imagine that.

Ha, I would have to clarify with my husband...
even the jiggly parts that hang clear down to my belly button?! ;)

This post made me giggle. :D

We have constant flexing around here too. It's hilarious because they are just so darn skinny!

He is a wise one.

When my husband tells me I'm beautiful and sexy I know it's because I'm the only one that it's legal to tell those things...

...but I'll take it anyway...
