Ren wanted to go to McDonald's for a Big Mac this weekend.  Also wanted to go to Graeter's for Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.  Wouldn't get off of it.  He was driving me crazy!  He has lost 25 pounds now, and he thinks he's half-way done (LOL, maybe a fourth, but that's a battle to come).  He deserves to celebrate.  So I finally just said, "I refuse to go watch you stuff your face with a Big Mac, but if you want to go to Graeter's, I'll go.  We'll get you ice cream and take a little drive down to Spring Grove Cemetery to eat it so I can look for a nice plot to plant you in when you go and die on me."
 
I didn't hear another word about junk food.  My daughter told me I'm evil.  And coming from her, that's a good thing!
 
Thanks for the suggestion!
 
Love and hugs...

LOL I love it. Young women think they can change a man. When you get my age you know better and cut right to the chase. Men do not respond to hints unless it pertains to Food or S**. If you want a man to "get it" about anything else you have to hit them with "EVIL". Perfect name for it. tee hee. A friend of mine has a husband that does not speak hints either. She tried my plot line but his answer was he wanted to be cremated. Well you know me, I try not to let anyone deter me from the last word. I served up another helping of EVIL. He has a heart problem and wanted to stop for Mc something. I turned around and told him, we could not eat there. If I was going to have to live off half a pension in a world without Vic, it sure was not going to be for a Mc. Well when he finally quit blinking at me trying to decide if I was joking or not, I told him we would pull in and let him get one and then tomorrow I would take his wife out shopping for her next husband. If you run out of evil. Just post I have plenty more. LOL So glad I could help. Love and hUgs Joyce

How wonderful it would be to see Angels where there are only clouds. How sad it would be to see clouds where there are Angels.

Speaking as a middle-aged woman who's struggling with whether or not I should devote energy to trying to change something that's probably not going to change......these are pearls of wisdom.

Dear Joyce...part of the reason that line had such great impact for my husband is, he DOES want to be cremated. He's very claustrophobic, and the idea of being shut up in a coffin and buried six feet under the ground is just more than he can deal with. So when I threaten to plant him...well, that's a very serious threat around here!

Ellen, I usually just tell him that when he dies, I'm gonna park his urn right by the front door, and I'm gonna kick him every time I go out and spit on him every time I come in. Teach him for dying on me!

We flipped a coin a long time ago. I get to go first. It's a sealed deal.

Anyway, Joyce, I enjoyed your "pearl."

Love and hugs...
