Sinus man and I have been married 23 years
which is a lot of snoring, farting, smelly socks and truly volcanic sneezes
when you stop and think think about it
he has been asking me to pull his finger for 25 years now, and still thinks it is funny
he magically falls asleep watching any tv show that isn't sports related
and every night swears he wasn't asleep despite the snoring, floppy head
and ever so slight hint of drool
but every now and again he does something that makes you forget all that
and reminds you what a magnificent man he is...
The other night I casually asked him how much he loves me
and if he would do anything for me
to which he answered ... a huge amount and of course ... whhhyyyyy
suddenly it clicked that I had that glint in my eye and while in the distant past he might have tried to back out and save himself from whatever I was about to inflict upon him, he now just graciously asks... what do I have to do
Just try some yogurt for me I say...
what's wrong with it? it's out of date again isn't it? why cant I just smell it?
why do I always have to taste it? why can't you inflict these things on Phantom?
after all that is one of the benefits of having a child isn't it... getting them to do the stuff we hate... and a few other choice comments
I let him have his little rant then informed him it wasn't out of date or anywhere close actually
which made him even more suspicious
and led to a grudging ... bloody hell just give it to me
and then I handed him these beauties... sweet potato and cinnamon flavoured and carrot and apple flavoured yogurts... awesome packaging but slightly scary flavour combos in my mind... but he just peeled back those lids and dove in
not a peep of dissent, not a moment of hesitation
not even a trace of fear crossed his adorable face
he was nothing short of magnificent
In fact he informed me they were delicious
and unlike him I required a lot of coaxing and sniffing
but after a taste I had to admit they were a lot better than I had expected
I was envisaging a weird baby food type deal, but the flavours were nice
the texture however was a whole other matter, and not my cup of yogurt at all
though Sinus happily polished them both
then he even washed the containers and handed them over to me
knowing full well I only bought them so I could paint them
he is a keeper through and through I tell you
so a huge thanks to Sinus for sacrificing himself for the sake of my artwork yet again
and a public statement that he is magnificent seems like the least I can do in the situation
I am off to the grocer to see what new marvels I can find to inflict on him
so happy painting all...xx
I did a post of Tuesday that includes a video demonstration of me painting some carrots... it seems that veggies are quite the theme at the moment...
