How do you know if he really loves you?

Yes. I snore & He still loves me

My wonderful, light-hearted and clever husband  might just kill me for posting the following.  But to my defense, this post was inspired by the site, who sends out weekly writing prompts to those of us in dire need of fresh, compelling topics on which to compose our prose.

An Argument in 15 lines or Less

  1. Him: You snore.  I love you but your snoring is unbearable!
  2. Me:  I know I snore.  I can’t help it.  It’s my allergies.
  3. Him: I don’t care what’s causing it.  You need to do something.
  4. Me:  Actually, I had that sleep study done a few weeks ago and I just saw the doctor.
  5. Him: Oh?  And what did he say?  Do you need surgery?
  6. Me: He said that it’s an option.  He wants to chop off that u-thingy that hangs in the back of my throat.
  7. Him:  Cool.  What does that thing do anyway?
  8. Me: Not the point.  I don’t want to have that u-thingy amputated
  9. Him: Can you really call it an amputation?  I mean, it could be kind of cool not to have one right?
  10. Me:  Well, it must do something otherwise humans wouldn’t have one right?
  11. Him:  You would stop snoring and that would be good too.
  12. Me: It’s an amputation!  I can’t believe you want me to get a part of my body amputated! And I could die because I would have to go under general anesthesia.
  13. Him:  I’ll tell you what, if you have that u-thingy removed, then I will too. We could have dual amputations, okay?
  14. Me: You’d do that for me?
  15. Him: Yes.  Anything to get some sleep.  Now, please STOP SNORING!

Looking back.  It really was a funny conversation.  Hopefully, we won’t get to the point where I will need major surgery.

    Any man who is willing to go under the knife for you is a keeper….even if it is just to get you to stop making so much noise. 😛

    so funny–I hope you two don’t end up having duel amputations. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

      I am thinking…no. Anyway, I heard that these surgeries generally don’t work. Off to find another solution. I’ll keep you posted.

    Intersesting discussion. Well and concisely written.

    OR you could get a machine that you strap to your head every night and feeds you oxygen so you won’t snore. My brother in law has one and it works like a charm. No amputation!!

    I don’t like the idea of body amputations either! You husband must really love you. I would love to be able to argue like that. Funny.
