- Wedding: July 2013
So, last night Mr CL and I were watching Dr Who (bear with me here!). Neither of us have been particularly enamoured of this season and we were discussing it afterwards.
Mr CL: “The thing is, you expect so much of it and then you feel like you have to make excuses for it afterwards.”
Me: “Yeah, I guess you’re right.”
Mr CL: “It’s like…. it’s like disappointing sex. At first, you’re all ‘Yeah, I’m going to have some sex!’ and then part way through, you realise it’s going to be disappointing, and then afterwards you’re saying to yourself, ‘Well, I did get to have sex, so I guess that’s a bonus,’ and making excuses for it.”
At this point I’m giving him a disbelieving death stare. I should explain that we’ve been together since we were 17 and he was a virgin when we first slept together. We’ve been together since then and he’s never slept with anyone but me.
Once he realised what the death stare was about (and it took him some time), he tried to backtrack by saying it’s what he imagines disappointing sex to be like and just kept digging himself in further and further. Silly boy.
I’m not stupid – I’m well aware of the fact that we don’t always have perfect sex. For one thing, I have pretty severe asthma which sometimes means we have to stop mid-way (and believe me when I say I’m definitely as disappointed and frustrated by that as he is!) and for another thing, I don’t believe anyone always has perfect sex. But most of the time I think it’s great, and I don’t need to hear about it being disappointing as part of what he thinks is an amusing analogy.
*sigh* I wasn’t upset with him for long. I just wish he understood when to stop talking sometimes!
Please tell me someone else’s other half says stupid things like this sometimes!
