Last week, I had the sinus infection from h*ll. It was rough. Sore throat that made me sound like I smoke 2 packs a day, copious amounts of snot gushing from my nose, nostrils rubbed raw from tissues....not cute, overall.
I've never really been ill for any extended period of time around Coach, always just sniffly for a day or two then better. But this sinus infection WOULD NOT VACATE the premises.
5 days into this sickness, Coach romances me in bed, acting like I am on the cover of Maxim or something. Same thing the next morning. I'm talking ultimate sweetness, kisses on my shoulders, general behavior as if I am some treasured artifact. All while I look like the before chick on a cold medicine commercial.
He still wanted to do me, red nose, lots of snot and all. And to know that my husband still thinks I'm do-able in that state was the most liberating thing in the world.
Marriage is surprising. I knew the man loved me, but wow.....he loves me.
Has your marriage surprised you? How does your partner respond when you're sick?
