Pamper Her a Little
The word is out, the flu season has come upon us once again; or, maybe it never left. Anyway, there sure are a lot of people who are lying around in bed, not feeling all that good.
You know, it’s kind of funny; the biggest, toughest, most macho guy can turn into a baby when he gets sick. It’s amazing how something so small as a bacteria or even a virus can take away our strength, our will, and our desire to do anything. All we want to do is lay around all day.
Isn’t it great to know that when we’re not feeling good, our wives are there to take care of us? It is so comforting to have someone pampering us at that time; bringing us something to drink, running to the store for our medicine, and just fussing over us.
But, wait a minute; who fusses over our wives when they get sick?
Day 56 – You know, if she fusses over you when you are sick, it’s only fair that you do the same for her. Oh, I know, you might not have the natural propensity to do that like she does (I know I don’t), but that isn’t the point. She needs you to pamper her just as much as you need her to pamper you when you’re laid up.
So, how do you do that? Easy, just do everything for her that she would do for you. Don’t try and tell me you don’t know what she does for you when you’re sick, you know. Well, those same things will help to comfort her and make her feel like somebody cares about her.
You see, that’s the problem; when we don’t take care of our wives when they are sick, we make them feel like we don’t care about them. Worse, we’re establishing a double standard; they should take care of us, but we don’t have to do the same for them. Make the extra effort, do whatever you can to make her feel well taken care of. She’ll appreciate you for it.
