Dear Helen Hartman,
The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Well, that’s what you’d think is
happening around this place if you listened to the demands and
complaints coming from the vicinity of our couch.
My husband is sick. No, not the kind of sick where he goes to the doctor to get better, the kind where he lays around the house ‘dying’ and telling me no one has ever been as sick as he is. Maybe it sounds like I’m making too big of a deal of the whole ordeal but would love to know what to do with a sick husband? Providing smothering him is not an option.
Dear Loved Him in Sickness and Health But This Is Ridiculous One,
Making too much of a deal? Loved One, in the great charts of epic world ending catastrophes it goes as follows:
Man with a head cold
|"There, there, dear. At least Man with a Head Cold made a respectable showing. I'm sure Man with a Boo Boo is in the top 10!"|
Helen does love men. She also loves shoes.
|A keepsake from my mom, hand made alligator circa 1965|
But she has no patience for either if they don't look and feel wonderful.
|If you just envisioned Helen wearing divinely cute shoes walking all over some poor hapless fella you are now absolutely my favorite person. Keep painting, dear, Helen is going out to toast to the brilliance of her clever readers.|
Perhaps it’s just a matter of perspective? All in how you look at it?
When we are sick everyone craves a little pampering.
|I don't know where to start with this photo... to focus on the fact his chest looks like a living KEN doll or that his far away look make me think he'd rather have a someone NAMED Ken giving him that "grown-up' Vapo Rub down.|
Pampering, how hard can that be? People do it for me all the time and seem to sincerely love it. At least that's what I hear when they blab on and on about whatever it is they are saying as they wait on me hand and foot.
|Just treat me as you would any princess with the power to turn you into a Popsicle|
They do say to feed a fever and starve a cold… or is it the other way around? Either way, if your other half complains of not feeling well, whip up one of these.
|That'll shut them up.|
Remember men who overdo on the demands when they are sick are like medication…
|Sweet, sweet medication. Mine makes me see a family that helps with the dishes. Flying dishes.|
Things will go much better if you respond to them rather than react to them!
|And would it be so wrong to respond via cell phone as you take off for parts unknown with your bff until your sweetie is actually feeling sweet again?|
