Ladies, sometimes expect the best...

Yesterday, Marty called me during the middle of the day while I was having lunch with my friend Amanda. I answered and told him I would call him back when I was done. He called again just as we finished lunch while I was walking home. I answered and he sounded down and sad, so I asked him what was wrong and he told me that we would talk about it when he got home. Well, this is not my typical conversation with Marty during the day so I started to get worried. My mind drifts to all the terrible situations that could have happened throughout the day- maybe he got fed up with his job and quit, or maybe he crashed his truck, or maybe he broke the zipper on his pants and had to walk around half naked all day- I don't know. So, instead of worrying too much about it, I decided to fix dinner, put on a sundress I know he likes and at least he will come home to food and his wife. The doorbell rang and I assumed it was our neighbors, so I called "Come in". No one came in, so I went over to open it. There was Marty standing in the doorway, with a 12 pack of Beck's Light in one hand (only 64 calories by the way) and gerber daisies in the other hand. The newlywed still in the honeymoon stage would notice the flowers and squeal with joy, yet all I did was look at the beer and then at the flowers and said "What did you do!" Marty just said "nothing!" and kissed me hello. It turned out that Marty just had a long tiring day and wanted to have a relaxing night. So, ladies, sometimes our hubbies do actually do silly things, yet sometimes just expect the best from them :)
