Top 10 Reasons to "Love Me" or "Get With Me"

In honor of Valentine's Day this week, the Hubs has submitted a guest post for today.  He has no filter (this is the man who called our neighbor's 2 year old a liar) so this should be interesting.  I've given him absolute freedom to write whatever's on his mind without any edits from me.  So here you go:

My Dearest Jen,

Congratulations on your blog.  I am so happy that you are getting so many people to read it.


I know how everyone loves your lists, so I came up with one myself.

I have 10 very compelling reasons why you really should "spend more time with me."

1. I cook for you and the kids.  Don't deny it.  You and the kids love my cooking and you'd all starve if I wasn't here.  If they wanted everything burnt, they would ask for you.

2. I load and unload the dishwasher.  I figure, if I'm doing all the cooking, I might as well do the clean up while I'm there.

3. I get up every morning and feed the kids and let you sleep in for an extra 30 minutes of sleep. I'm sure many women would gladly give anything for that.


4. "I love you” and you are the “best and ONLY mother of my children.”

5. It is a healthy way to stay in shape.  Everyone needs some cardio, so I am just helping you out with your workout and looking out for your best interest.  I am always looking out for you first.

6. Even though it is a “jungle” down there, I am still willing to brave that “jungle.”  NOTE: I heard that the Brazilians have cutting edge technologies to deal with the jungle.  You might want to look into it. 
7. I'm SURE it was part of our wedding vows or something.  Maybe it was in my head, but that should count.
8. If you “Love” me.  "Show" me.  Repeat as often as possible.

9. It's only 5 minutes out of your day.  Not that I keep track or anything.
10. I have a GREAT sense of humor.  That's why I know you want to "get with me."

Marriage is a give and take.  I just give and give and give.  I think it's time you did a little giving.  I'm sure everyone reading this will agree with me.  I deserve a little more "Special Time" with my wonderfully super talented wife.

PS. Consider this your Valentine's gift.  Don't ask for a card or a gift this year. Having me as your HUBS should be gift enough.

Wow, OK, Hubs.  It's on.  Here's my response to you.

  1. Oh, Lordy! My hubs could have written this, too - minus the part about cooking, cleaning up the dishes and letting me sleep in to feed the kids. Wait! What kind of raw deal did I sign myself up for?!? HAH!

      Awesome! Sounds familiar abut helping with her workout, i do believe that't my husbands exact words. His usual line is "How ya feeling?" Its not because he actually cares how I'm feeling. I told him now he can't ask the kids "how their feeling", it creeps me out!

  14. I love it - nice job Punch Hubs!! The Ecard has some great advice too! My hubby always says.."now I know why you were smiling SO big in our wedding photo.." Because you 'showed me loved me' SO many times before the wedding...you're pretty comfortable with less frequency now. lol.... good stuff!

  15. Man, if I wrote half of those things I would be banned for life!!! Brave man!!

  16. Very funny (though, I think I'd have to retaliate for #6!), your hubs has a great sense of humor, never expected less!

  20. Oh my god - my name is Jen too - and I swear that letter could have been written to me by my hubby. He uses ALL those same compelling reasons and more for trying to get "special time." Good to know he's not the only one making this sh*t up as he goes along! :)

  33. I love the overuse of quotes, does he do air quotes also? Because I had an overwhelming urge to while I was reading...I am with him on the jungle though. It's 2012, take care of that shit. Pubic hair is unsanitary and unsightly.

  34. Give it up, Jen. Look at it this way, sex is like oranges.
    Wait. What?
    That's right, sex is like oranges. You look at that fruit sitting there in that bowl and you think to yourself,
    "Oh, I should really have an orange. It's good for me. I know I like it. I will enjoy eating that orange. But ohhhh, I don't have time to sit and peel it. And then the clean-up! Throwing away the peels, washing my hands. I just don't feel like dealing with it."
    But then. Then you go ahead and you eat that orange. And you're like "God DAMN that was good. I'm going to eat an orange every day from now on."
    Next day, you look at that bowl of fruit and you're like,
    "I know I SHOULD...."

    1. Great analogy - Eat the Orange Ladies - Everyday if you can - the more you do it the more you want it... and definitely trim the bush... then you get more face time and that makes it so worth the effort!!!

    2. Love the analogy!

    3. Anne, you are so right! Nearly every time my hubby asks for special time, I think to myself - "Why do I fight it when it's so awesome to give in?"
      I said it out loud once, and my husband wanted to tape it so he could play it for me whenever I said no in the future! LOL

    4. Best analogy ever!!!!

    5. LOVE this! I say this about oranges AND the sex too! LOL

    6. You forgot about the fact that once you get the orange and peel it and finally get to eat it, it only takes like two minutes to eat, then you still gotta clean up the mess after...just saying, that that's what I've heard, it only takes two minutes, I meant not here at my house or anything, it takes me like 4 or 5 minutes to eat an orange...

    7. HaHaHa - I will never look at oranges the same way again.

  38. So freaking great! What a fantastic post. You guys both have a great sense of humor, I bet it's fun times in your house. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why do they ALWAYS bring up the cardio/exercise thing?!?!? Do they really think calling us fat will make us want to get naked? Yes, in our heads "you will burn 100 calories" is EXACTLY THE SAME as "you are fat".

  40. Did he just out your "jungle?" he deserves a punch, not "special time."

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dear Hubs- As a woman who has been married for 10 years now, I can tell you that I agree! You are an amazing husband...like mine....and you deserve some "Business Time"! Its like a fine wine....it gets so much better with age! How about this quality valentine gift idea....you guys go to the adult store and pick out a special friend to make "Business Time" even better!....just a thought. ; - )

    ReplyDelete
  42. As a loyal reader since I first read about Elf on the Shelf, I have to admit that is one of the funniest posts by far. I think that Hubs should get at least one post per week. Sounds like he does enough to deserve to be heard and "had" for that matter!

    Here's hoping that he gets "his" tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you for the laugh today!! I thought about sending it to my dh but then I thought "nah, he'll make comments for years then".

    ReplyDelete
  44. I too am the man of the house that does 95% of the cooking, all the laundry, cleaning, didhwasher ib & out along with chores tome named later. I now understand why so many women would crack because they felt so unappreciated. Your spouse, generally, will not notice the things you have done; they notice when it's not done. I try to remember this because before I stopped working no one at my work came around and complimentased my accomplishments of the day. In that light why would we expect anyone to notice every little thing we do. As men we could all use some more "time together". Since my wife donated one of her kidneys to me in 1997, I have pretty good idea how she feels so I will be happy to be "waiting for the woman"

    ReplyDelete
  45. That was pretty awesome. Nothing says good lovin' like a little yard work in the "jungle". Oh, the things we do for love. . .that's a blog post all of its own.

  46. Oh I think I love your Hubs. Number six was hands down the funniest thing I have ever read.

  47. Hubs did a great job :) you guys are funny! Now, quit reading these comments and give each other some lovin

  48. Are you married to my Hubby?!?!? I think he wrote this. The only thing wrong is the breakfast so I can sleep in. But if he is only talking weekends, it is him. He has started your blog. Best keep him away from this one!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, Jen. If all this he write is true, filter or not, he deserves some "time". LOL. My husband is lucky if he gets it every time he loads the dishwasher, which might be once a year. You have it good, girl. Give him one (or a few) for the team. LOL. The cardio thing is a crock though. If he wants a workout, fine. But let him go on top as it's not as much work for you, lolol. Great post. I like your hubs! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I still think he should get you a card.

  51. Mrs. CV would kill me for writing that. Hell she'll likely kill me for reading it.

  52. So appropriately said, they are all the same. One minute of lovin and four spent apologizing. Congratulations on the Huff, so much for the novel. I see a more of a Chicken Soup for the Soul type book if Chicken Soup for the Soul was more about punching people in the throat!

  59. Wow! Hubs may be more demanding than Jen?! Nah, not possible. For the record, outing one's jungle and then telling her she needs exercise... NOT the way to get some!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Very funny...but one punch back to your Hubs...
    if it's only 5 minutes, I don't think you can count it as cardio.
    That would be more like, I don't know, a military black operations mission -
    Get in
    accomplish the mission
    Get out

  61. Yes, the unloading/loading of the dishwasher was a real panty-dropper. You got a good one there, Jen!! Sexy time!!

    not a lie: I used hubs clippers to tame the jungle, shaved my legs, and all that other shit to get ready for my 30 seconds of bliss.. but he was an ass about something earlier and we fought so I went to bed.

    One point for me. his clippers are now mine when i choose to use them, and I'm sure he just does it himself instead of wasting all that time begging.

    You're funny! Your man is funny! Keep blogging girl!

  68. DW and I love to follow you (and now Hubs). I have to admit that DW and I laughed so hard we almost woke up the kids last night...then I reminded her that I do a lot of #1, #2, and #3 so I convinced her that I should 'get some loven" as well. She said she had 5-minutes to spare ;-)

    And for the record, not a good idea to tell her to tame the Jungle and she needs exercise.

    Thank you Hubs (and Jen)

  74. I think we are married to the same man. Seriously. How do guys not realise they need to 'woo' us? My husband is a burping farting machine - I love him dearly but if you have to tell someone that DURING LOVEMAKING you should not burp in your partner's face, there's an issue. I love sex, but part of sex to me is foreplay. Knowing where my 'spots' are. I get neither of those so why would I be motiviated to have sex? Oy.

  75. Oh hell lol.....#6 is the best!

  76. Hey Eli. Nice post. Just want to add something: I am Brazilian, and we do not have cutting edge technology on dealing the the jungle. Just to clarify this. ;)

    You two sure make a nice couple.

    exceptions: when he whines and bitches at you, you must punish him with NO SPECIAL TIME.
    that's when you call yourself the SPECIAL TIME NAZi and tell him to go spend some special time with himself LMFAO!!!!!

  79. The more I think about Samantha's articles... the worse I feel for her. I actually think she may be insane. What she doesn't understand is that... if she were a nice, modest, friendly person - it would make her twice as pretty! What she has done for herself is make herself look ugly - inside and out. I am sure the person that published the first article about her knew they "struck gold" because it's so ridiculous... And, I agree - she worsens everything by writing about herself again. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  89. Your hubs is hilarious! Mine wakes up with the kids every morning too and BOY do I hear about it.

    ReplyDelete
  90. i love how hubbys think that they do every thing when we cook , clean get up at 7 am for our kids and then get them ready for the day , then the men think they are god because for one day out of the week they do something like let is sleep for an extra 5 min . then they rub it in your face like they do it all week hahaja cracks me up,.

    ReplyDelete
  91. How many men think this but are afraid to say it let alone write it?? Quite funny and the comments too.

    ReplyDelete
  92. My husband would write this but wouldn't be able to claim doing any of that helpful shit. This morning I took a picture of a puddle of his pee on the back of the toilet and sent it to him saying "I don't mind cleaning, but I don't think I should be expected to clean THIS, do you?" lol

    He fixes stuff. That's his thing.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I really like your husband. You should *love* him occasionally. I might copy this and give it to my husband...cuz I could use some "special time".

    ReplyDelete
  94. This is hilarious, my husband would also suggest #6 and if he ever wrote on my blog or cooked dinner I might pass out and then be useless when it came to him "getting some."

    ReplyDelete
  95. HA!
    I cannot show this to my hubby -- since he is currently cooking dinner and did unload the dishwasher.
    Wait for it though....
    ....I've spent the day going around the house wiping down all the places he constantly spills his coffee.
    And we won't even talk about that scary place behind the toilet.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Wow - I think Hubs' letter was a little dickish. I am surprised I am in the minority. Jen, what men don't realize is that to get "THERE" they have to go through our brains and unless that brain is engaged there won't be anything happening "THERE". Sounds like Hubs could use a little brush up on brain engagement.

    And I think if HE thinks you need some hedge trimming then he should submit his landscape for the same. I betcha he won't ever complain again.
