Pillow Talk of the Married


The Mayor has a big, lima bean shaped head.

Last night as I lay in bed, I reached up to feel my own head.

[Oh, what? You never feel your head?]

“I have a lima bean shaped head,” I said to K. “I guess that’s where he gets it from.”

K reached over and felt my huge brain container the bulbous back of my head.

“You DO have a lima bean shaped head,” he said mirthfully.
I looked at him.

“Well. So? You have a HUGE block head.”

“Legume!” he taunted.

“Oaf!” I retorted.
Oh, the love.

Hmmm. I don't know what shape my head is. I tried to tell by feeling it, but it just feels ... head-shaped. Something new to think about.

Feel the phrenology themed love.

I do love banter like this. When I remarked that my wife's big eyes were a bit like boiled eggs she retorted with "Yeah, well yours are like two piss-holes in the snow". Touché...

Ah... nothing like the romance of marriage. ;)

Mrs. Schmitty said...

You two are just so disgustingly romantic!!

Ways to fire up the flame in the bedroom...phrenology.

Manager Mom said...

Ahhh. Romance...hopefully your future love banter will not start to include expletives...

Pillow talk of the married when you are in bed talking about head...

..and you are actually talking about your head.

Kyla said...

Ah yes, romance.

Virtualsprite said...

Wow. I thought Nature Boy and I were romantic.

Nice. I don't know what shape my head is - I guess I've never really felt it up in that way. But I could tell you your fortune based on the shape of your head!

Oh the quackery of Phrenology!

So, is K a Swede. My hubs is 1/2 Swedish on his Dad's side, and I always tease him about being a Block-Head Swede. Both of our grandsons have the same trait. It missed the girls, thank God.

I'm not sure Misterpie would want to live with the result of calling me a vegetable...

I have a major flat spot on the back of my head. I can balance a Coke can (or beer)...whatever your preference! ;)

of all the names I have called The Boy "beanhead" is NOT one

Amanda said...

Wicked muscular calves and piss-poor eyesight, that is our children's genetic lot.

Damselfly said...

Aren't lima beans kinda flat? ;)

I like to point out my husband has a little tuft of hair on one side of his back but not the other.

Ree said...

It really does take one to know one. ;-) Snort.

And unfortunately, I'm way too familiar with the shape of my head right now.

Cyndi said...

I love trading insults with my husband. It always makes him laugh when I say something really mean.

Kelley said...

better a lima bean than a lolly pop.

Lotta said...

That's my kind of foreplay!

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

Ahh, a man who can use the word, "legume" as a taunt. Lovely.

It was kind of awesome to run into one of my high school boyfriends (who dumped me before homecoming AND prom)and see that not only has he lost his hair, but his cranium now weirdly resembles a Clingon.

We have never had that conversation exactly, but ones that have been close. Personally I would not trade it for the most romantic of pillow talk. It is our happy little family, and that is enough.

Sometimes, ridiculous topic could be a good pillow conversation. Last time I made pillow conversation with my spouse was about nose shape and still many other stupid things we discussed in the bed. But that never get me bored :)
