The Dutchess' Secret Ingredient To A Good Marriage
Thursday, October 23, 2008
I don't know what works for the other couples but in our case, it's duct tape.
No, not the type you use to play kinky bedroom games with unless it's your thing to do, then by all means, go for it. Whatever rocks your boat, I always say.
The duct tape I'm referring to is the kind you mentally plaster your mouth with when your better half does something to jar the inner core of your sensibilities. That something in question is usually more often than not, minor but making a comment would certainly spark off World War Three. So in Cookalot, what we do is pull out a good length of imaginary duct tape, cut it with our imaginary scissors and paste it over our very real and very ready with-the-sharp-comment mouth. And if you and your better half are so in tuned with each other,
the perpetrator your better half will acknowledge this humongous act of self-control and appreciate you further. Danger is averted and peace reigns.
This duct tape of ours work on eyes too.
Note: Application is only suitable for the petty annoyances which pop up from time to time. Should the annoyances be linked to major issues of trust, fidelity and the like, forget about the tape and reach for that crowbar instead.
