Never Was a Pin-Up Girl

My darling husband just had some shoulder surgery and over the past few weeks, he'd been prepping our computer room the MAN ROOM for his homecoming and the painful recovery process.

Mostly this has consisted of aligning a lazy boy for optimum viewing of the flat-screen TV. But then, the other day, he came home with a pin-up calendar. I found it hiding in the closet at first.

Me: Uhh...[picking up the calendar like a stinky sock]...what's this?

The Hub: [smirk] What? It's a calendar, lady. Steve gave it to me.

Me: Lovely. I never liked Steve, you know.

A few days later--nay, it was more like minutes later--the calendar had been hung next to the flat-screen TV. You know, in perfect alignment with the lazy-boy. FOR OPTIMUM VIEWING...um...PLEASURE.

So, while he was in the hospital last night, getting shots of morphine, I added some loving touches to his man-cave to welcome him home fondly:


How long 'til he notices, you think? I give it minutes, signaled by muffled protests of marital suffocation from behind the computer room door. (And followed by demands for things like pillows, water, and more morphine. Baby Tylenol is kinda close, right?)

In other news, I have like the sweetest spammers ever:

And in the spirit of neverending self-promotion, I've got another post up over at The Cradle! Go throw tomatoes at me or something! Babies? Breast implants?

  4. I'm 100 days out from major shoulder surgery. (Reattachment of three tendons and my bicep), rotator cuff sutures and to facilitate all those repairs, they cut my clavicle.

    Let the man look at the pretty pictures. He'll need something to distract him from the pain.

    I never get sweet spammers. I just get offers to enhance my maleness of which I have none.

  7. lol - I never thought of putting my face on the calendar! Way back when my ex brought home a Playboy calendar, so my sisters got me an autographed Fireman's calendar for my side of the bed :)
