Yeah, the other one.
It was just a joke. I'd said that sooner or later I guess I'd have to sort out what things about me I can't change, what I can change, and what I shouldn't change. He said like "Yeah, we can send you to Extreme Makeover." I must have looked.... Anyway, he went on to explain what the show did, I responded that I doubted that would fix all my problems, he acknowledged that it wouldn't, and said he was just kidding.
I know he was. But it stung a bit. I laughed about it with my husband. And I can live with it.
But I can see myself having some ulterior motives in mentioning what I did about blonde arm hair. And seeing him reflexively check to see how his own arm hair curled around his watch. :))
I still need to work on that lovingkindness I suppose.
It really is a cool book though. It came into our conversation because I was laughing my head off at the section on penis size when he came to get me, and he asked why I was laughing.
I'd have probably mentioned it anyway, given the appropriateness to what we've been discussing.
As the book goes on I'm getting more and more uncomfortable with the similarities between courtship and therapy.
