Guest blogger Childlessandlovinit: I don't do anything gross in front of my guy -- but he may have just changed all that.
I am not into picking my nose, going to the bathroom or farting in front of my guy -- in fact, I think it kills the romance. It may sound kind of old school, but I'm afraid that if I start doing that business, he'll start to look at me like one of his buddies, not his lover. Now I realize, this is a completely different deal for a guy -- they burp, fart, floss, pick their zits, everything in front of us. Eew.
It gets worse.
The other day, while my bf and I were out running errands, my guy went to pick something up and loudly farted. To be honest, I am not THAT suprised by this -- but what I AM surprised by was that he wasn't at all embarrassed. It was more like he was PROUD. He mischievously smiled and carried on shopping. In fact, at dinner later on that night he said "Babe, tell everyone about what happened at LensCrafters." I then went into detail about the fart incident, and as I got closer to the punchline, he was simply beaming. Even more surprising was that everyone at the table, particularly his guy friends, laughed as if it was the funniest thing they'd ever heard. Gross.
Later on, as I was getting ready for bed (with the bathroom door CLOSED while I was taking my makeup off and doing my pre-bed duties) I thought: Why should I act like a lady if he acts like he was raised in a barn? You know what? The next time we're out in public I may just let one go -- and see how HE reacts! Chances are, he will be mortified and in shock. Maybe he'll even think twice about his grossness in front of me too. Stay tuned ...
