Women are not romantic

So, I get home yesterday, clean up the kitchen and have dinner on the table when my wife comes home. After 35 years of marriage I am still tickled to death to see her and I give her a big hug, kissing her cheek and neck. Know how she responds?

"When do think we can have those front windows replaced?"

Sometimes I feel like Bill Murray in Lost in Translation, only without Scarlett Johansson.

I shake my head.

It takes 2 to be romantic. Its like a sound that nobody hears. If the other person isn't receptive, its not romance.

They say that eyes are the windows of the soul. Maybe your wife was just confused.

my GF comes up with some horribly unromantic chores to do as well. she also does this thing where she'll slip a little task in right as we're leaving to go somewhere fun. we always have to empty the dishwasher, take out the trash, or empty the cat litter first.

I remember this bit from a comedian, I forgot his name though:

The sex therapist always say to do someting spontaneous to spice up your love life. So yesterday when I was loading the dishwasher, I dropped my pants and masturbated.

Women may not be romantic, true.

Maybe that's why they love me so much. Perhaps I compensate for their shotcomings, and they appreciate the difference. Opposites do attract, you know.

If a woman is unwilling, draw her a bath with roses.

If she continues to smite you, drown her in the bathtub, and bury her in the rose garden.

(For slovid)

God, I feel icky for penning that bit of poison. Misogony is not my stlye.

That isn't romance. that's maintainence.

Romance is a scented letter. A flower. A stroll through the garden. A moonlit kiss. A candlelit dinner. A bottle of wine, and two glasses. An ocean view. Two tickets to Paris. A shopping spree in New York. A theater in London. A wake-up call. A sincere compliment.

These are cliches, to be certain. But I reserve my spontanious romantic behaviour for the soul of a woman. In that case,I shall reveal nothing.
