TMS is “The Sexy Marine.” Somehow MSgt and I started to refer to my hubby as the sexy Marine(I actually think he started it) and then my other friend, CC, started using TSM in emails and I loved it, so I from now on my hubby is TSM.
So, our neighbor, who we love came over tonight with his girls. He has them every other weekend and lucky us, this is his weekend. His youngest daughter is 7. I remember babysitting her and rocking her to sleep. Her name is the same as our youngest daughter. I knew her before I knew mine. Anyway, the parents have since divorced(not a pretty story) We remained friends with the husband. Tonight he told us that he and his girlfriend have parted ways. Conflict with the kiddos.
After they left, TSM said, “That must be hard.”
Me- Yes. I can’t imagine. That is the reason I keep you around. The kids already seem to like you.
TSM- I don’t care why you keep me around as long as you do.
Me- Ahh, that is so sweet.
TSM- Ya, you really know how to make a guy feel special.
It is possible I might need to improve my communication skills slightly:)
