That’s how Carol describes me to her friends.
Well, maybe I am.
Hey, don’t go thinking I’m a wuss! I like action flicks and suspense novels as much as the next man. I drink beer and belch. I’m mechanically inclined and can fix most anything that’s broken (just ask Carol or my daughters). In fact, I’ve put several cars that were “totaled” by BOTH my daughters back on the road in good shape and insurable.
Hell, I’m a former Navy jet fighter pilot with over 250 logged carrier cat shots and arrested landings! (Think Tom Cruise in “Top Gun.”) A wuss? I don’t THINK so!
But I’m also a sucker for chick flicks. “Sleepless in Seattle” gets to me every time. I’m so in love with my wife of 38 years I can’t see straight. And yeah, I wrote a Romance novel (though strictly speaking it’s not a true genre Romance) and now I’m working on a romantic suspense thriller.
What’s in a name, anyway? Romantic? Sure. Macho? Sometimes.
So, yeah, I tell people I’m still in love with my first wife. (Of course, she’s also my ONLY wife!) When they ask how long we’ve been married I tell them, “Not long enough.” (And it’s not just a joke; it’s the truth.)
Do I really get “points” for that? No.
But it doesn’t hurt our relationship any, because she knows that how I really feel!
If it doesn’t work for you... Well, too bad.
It works for me and Carol.
