I’m a Nurse and a Mother. That means I have an incredibly heightened sense of observation. Ya know what I mean? Nothing, and I repeat, NOTHING, gets by me. I’m also a fairly new, newlywed, so I’m keenly aware of Dan, my man.
That is until yesterday when Sparky said, “I shaved my beard off 4 days ago and you have yet to notice.”
Me: Ahhhh…..ummmmm……hmmmm, you JUST shaved it off and you’re trying to trick me!
Sparky: You hate my beard and you’re always asking me to shave. So I did and you didn’t notice.
Me: ( Starting to squirm and choking back laughter). I Love your beard honey. You didn’t have to shave for me.
Sparky: You didn’t notice.
Me: Thinking (” There ain’t no way I’m getting out of this one.”) Ummm, how about some proof you shaved 4 days ago?
Sparky: Pictures never lie.
Bearded in Budapest on 11/2/15
Bearded in Munich 11/16/15
Beard LESS in the Hard Rock Cafe on Thanksgiving Day
Me: No Clue
Beard LESS on 11/29/15 at the Christmas Tree place
And me…CLUELESS for 4 days!
I tired hard to justify my honest mistake this morning by telling Dan that I didn’t notice the change because his beard and his face are the same color……White. He wasn’t buying it.
Sparky: (Laughing) That train has already done left the station babe. You aren’t getting on board now.
EVERYBODY SING ” Love and Marriage, Love and Marriage, go together like a horse and carriage!” Keep laughing!

Love this. You make me laugh. You tried so hard to get out of this one. I give you an A+ for effort.
Karen Giebel says
You have no idea how embarrassed I was that I hadn’t noticed and yep….I sure did try to get out of this one!
Bessie staffors says
Same thing has happened to me more than once unfortunately!! Thomas never misses a change just to make me feel worse but I tell him I just love you for your eyes and body and don’t go past there looking!!! He didn’t really believe me but like the “smile” on the explanation!!
Karen Giebel says
Bessie, I will remember your response for the next time, as I’m certain there will be a next time!
Thanks for taking the time to comment and to make me feel so not alone! 🙂
Penny McCurdy says
Wonderful story Karen! I laughed while reading it, oh how I can relate!! I think Dan got one over on you this time, hook, line, and sinker, I must say you do a excellent backstroke!! Hard to get out of that one, but you did give it a good try 😉
