Kisses and Disses : Glances and Booms


I’m pretty sure every couple does it. Or has it. Their own language. Silent and invisible to onlookers, but the spouse is very aware of its existence. Spending time with a few of our friends last week, the topic of spousal communication surfaced and I cringed. Well, because, I’m Queen of Non-Verbal Communication. No, no…EMPEROR. If you ask JD, I could pretty much give him a piece of my mind the duration of the Gettysburg Address with a single glance. I’m quite good at these glances.

JD, on the other hand, doesn’t have to give a Look. He has this strange aura–almost sonic like–that he emits when he worries I’m on the verge of saying something at a dinner party that may embarrass him, or encourage me to chew on my foot. Which happens more than I’d like to admit. The moment I’m telling a story filled with embarrassment and hilarity (because, let’s face it, me and Hilarity are second cousins, twice removed), JD will emit his sonic boom and I feel myself falling silent.

Between my looks and his sonic booms, we could be a lethal weapon. Which leads me to this week’s installment of Kisses and Disses…because, really, weapons deserve a diss all their own.

This week’s DISSES go to:
*Sonic booms. They ruin funny stories and make me the UNlife of the party.
*Security guards who tell me to stop shooting in public places. Doesn’t that contradict the idea of the word ‘public’? I’m just sayin’…
*Quarterly tax filings…need I say more?

This week’s KISSES go to:
*Glances. They’re so classy and mature. Obviously.
*Premiere Protein Shakes. These are the first palatable protein shakes I’ve encountered and the health benefits are ultra fab. I drink one before working out and I don’t feel guilty for sipping on chocolate for breakfast…score!
*FREE Websites. Ever since blogging about Showit’s FREE Websites, many blog readers have developed custom and unique websites…which is so awesome!
*Bonus kiss goes to Polo…because he’s the best dog in the world.

Happy Friday!
