What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • Well, that was gross.

  • Lyn

    Love to throw up.

  • Dana

    Imagine a man writing a comparably demanding list about what it means to love one’s wife. I’m guessing she’d think he was weak and emasculated!

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    If I love my husband I will keep the chocolate bars OUT of his hands and only serve food suitable for a borderline diabetic (unless of course I’m trying to hasten his demise for the insurance money)

  • Karen Goltz

    I would love to love a man that way! Where do I send my list of qualities he must possess and actions he must perform in order to be worthy of that kind of love from me?
