Bring on the Nag
I love wives who nag. The more they nag their husbands, the better I look. I especially love nagging wives during hunting season. At this time of year you start to hear stuff like this:
"so how big was the bull you shot?"
"oh yeah, mine is going in the books."
"I shot him from 70 yards."
And then you might also hear something like this: (all compliments of poor nagged husbands.)
"How mad is she?"
"Will she LET you go?"
"I don't care, I'm going anyway."
"She knew I was a hunter when she married me."
"She doesn't understand. I'm just trying to provide for our family."
This makes me think of college when my professors would grade on a curve. It didn't matter how bad you did, just as long as someone did worse than you, there is still a glimmer of hope. As long as there is a wife out there who nags more than I do, I'm GOOD!
Actually just the other day Kendon told me that he appreciates me for being of the non-nagging type. And I appreciated him for appreciating me.
So, go girls go! Keep bringing on the nag!
The truth is, all year I go and do lots of things a lot of the time. Most every week I have something that I get to do that is just for me. Whether it be book group, scrap booking, recipe swap, dinner with girlfriends. I am always going. Kendon is always willing to let me do all these things and stays home with the kiddos and does so happily. So, hunting season is his time of the year. He gets to go all he wants. I'm just glad that he has something that he is passionate about. I think it is neat.
