Mr. Romance Strikes Again.

“What’s in the bag?” He asked.
“A new perfume.”
“Oooh, let me smell.”
“It’s super sexy. I think you’re going to love it.”
I opened the box, took out the bottle and sprayed a little bit on wrist, a little bit on my neck.
He closed his eyes, took my arm, pulled it up to his nose and inhaled. He opened his eyes, smiled and inhaled again.
“Mmmmm.” He said. “So good.”
I giggled, all flirtatiously.
“You like it?”
“Oh, I love it. You know what it reminds me of?”
I smiled. “Tell me.”
“A cigar.”
He was not trying to be an asshole. He loves cigars, thinks they are one of the finer things in life.
Cigars are sexy, baby. It was a compliment.
Who wants a free bottle of brand new perfume?

    Sounds a lot like my husband when he told me he loved my ‘love handles’. I informed him that a girl does NOT want to hear she has love handles, but to say curves instead. Gotta love ’em!

    I know how badly that made you feel. I totally get that… but sometimes we as women have to get to their level and try and understand where they are coming from.
    Express your feelings to him and maybe he can do the same back… sounds like a great bonding experience waiting to happen, to me.

    It didn’t hurt my feelings. I mean, I was like “seriously? A cigar?” But I totally get him and know where he was coming from. But damn, if it doesn’t make me laugh that he said it. 😉

    Totally sounds like a conversation my husband and I would have. The joys of being married for almost 25 years. Glad to see you posting more often, love your stories.

    He most likely meant an after-great-sex-cigar. Please wear it with your sexiest outfit and see if it works.
