The Royal Bath
Everyone likes to be treated like they are something special, especially when they are treated that way by someone who is special to them. Since that’s what romance is about, it seems to me like we’ve got a perfect match.
It’s the weekend, and time to relax, right? Well, okay, yeah, there’s the yard to mow, and the car to wash, and all that, but somewhere in all this, we need to find a few minutes to relax as well. Better yet, we need to make sure we find a way to help our wives relax on the weekend. Well, today’s romantic act, one of my favorites, aught to help with that.
Day 29 – Several centuries ago, the Japanese came across the idea that a hot bath was one of the great ways to relax. I’m not sure when we in the “Western World” caught up with this idea, but the idea hasn’t changed in all that time; nor has the effectiveness of that hot bath.
So, let’s make this a really special hot bath for our wives. First of all, stop at the grocery store and pick up a dozen carnations, or other flowers. Don’t let your wife see them, but have them easily at hand for when you prepare her bath. As far as the bath itself, put some perfume and bubble bath in the water as you draw it. I don’t know what it is about bubble bath, but women like it, so we may as well take advantage of it. Cut the stems off of your flowers, and leave them floating in the water.
Just a couple more ingredients are needed to make this the perfect bath. Grab a CD player and you wife’s favorite soft, relaxing music. Put it on in the bath, and invite her in to relax in her special tub. Once she’s in there, bring her an ice cream Sunday.
You got all that? This is a little more complicated than our typical romantic act, but it’s Saturday, you’ve got the time to do something special for her. Not only will the ice cream melt in the hot tub, but I’ll bet her heart will too.
