Torture Devices

Did you know you can torture your husband for only a dollar? That's a very small price to pay, don't you think? If your husband is like mine then he probably doesn't like his dogs dressed up in sweaters. He probably really hates the idea of the dog showing up at his super macho flag football game all decked out to cheer on her owner. He probably hates even more hot pink, girly dresses on what he considers the ugliest dog in the world (Trudy is not ugly...she's muttly).
Target really outdoes themselves on husband torture devices. Last year at Halloween, Trudy surprised Chris with a lobster outfit. As soon as I saw it in the store, I started laughing and couldn't stop. Just knowing the joy it would bring to Chris took my breath away. And, then of course, there was the time last season that my parents taped Chris's football numbers to the back of Trudy's pink sweater and had her all suited up and ready to go to the game. Chris was reluctant to admit how darling she looked, but I think I could hear it in his voice when he insisted she was not going to the field like that. So modest. Didn't want anyone else to think he had more cheerleaders than they did.

This time, Target did it all for me, they imprinted "Go Team" on the fluffy pink shirt and made it easy to put on. Only a dollar to bring peace and goodwill and laughter to those you love.
No, Chris didn't laugh. In fact, he pulled into the driveway to pick me up, saw Trudy, and pulled back out again. He rolled down the window and told me I wasn't going if I was taking Tru with me. Apparently, not everyone appreciates laughter and peace and goodwill. Those people are usually the ones that hate Christmas and birthdays and probably like to kick little old ladies. I am suspect of those people.

Honey...honestly, am I never properly clothed or has my “lust factor” just gotten to you again.

You're just never properly clothed.

I would submit as evidence of my lust-factor theory, your cute prego tummy. I am just saying... Also, I am not judging you if you can't control yourself; we are called to a higher standard.

A "higher standard" indeed!!?? However, in our bible we find the "Song of Solomon" . . .

So what are we to make of this story. Is it "judging", "lust", or lack of "control" . . .

Our determination is the latter. We lost control "laughing" :>)

In His book of passion, and with lust . . . D&C :>)
