Marriage 201, Lecture 301: How can I miss you while you're still here?

SH: We're eating late again. I like that.

Me: I know. But you're gone for three nights this week so I get to go to bed early.

SH: Hey! You're not supposed to admit that you're glad that I'm going to be gone!

Me: I mean I'm crushed that you'll be gone and I won't be able to eat or sleep because I'll miss you so much.

Yes. Crushed. Send presents to help you recover type of crushed, right?

I think Beloved and I have had that same conversation. Only he was grousing about how late we were eating.

Whew, good thing THAT got straightened out. Can't have them thinking life carries on without them...

You can go out three nights this week and spend his money! I recommend Maxies and Juniper 61.

Our big tension is the nocturnal/diurnal difference. I love SH and am happy to be with him, but oh how I treasure my sleep. When he's gone, I get the nine hours my body wants.

TG, of course I will spend his money. I am a gold digger.
