All this wedding planning for Sheldon is bringing self-reflection of three decades with the Big Tuna. That’s a long ass time to spend with anyone. Ms. Anonymous gave me 50 Shades of Grey for a birthday gift. She also gave me a professional cordless ah…….wine opener. Get your filthy minds out of the gutter, this blog is supposed to be rated PG. Okay, maybe not. Essentially, its sex text for those frustrated mommies who have a secret S & M desire.
The young married Tunas (note we are waiting for the Polaroids to dry)
But truth be told, my advice to Sheldon is that it’s not always about unicorns and farting rainbows. It’s about the little things that make or break you. And having absolutely nothing in common. That’s right you heard me. Essentially, we have our own friends and hobbies and just meet up for our conjugal visits. Unless of course you are Sheldon reading this post, and then Mommy and Daddy are just watching Sportscenter and playing Scrabble in the evenings. So let’s discuss our differences shall we.
The Big Tuna likes steak and potatoes, tapping into the mighty hunter role. He never even ate broccoli until he met me. He shudders at the thought of avocados. I was seriously a faux vegetarian when we met, I didn’t do cow. He also rejects all cheese except for mozzarella. I mean, what civilized person doesn’t have a daily affair with cheddar?
And don’t get me started on NASCAR racing. All those counterclockwise circles just make me dizzy, I had to take Dramamine when we went to Disneyland for Pete’s sake. Stop trying to tell me that Jeff Gordon, all 5’-2” of him, is a real athlete. I might however, give you that Tony Stewart is yummy, I mean interesting to watch. Big Tuna is always a much more assertive driver during race season. I call it reckless driving and tailgating, he calls it drafting.
Let’s end with the big one. He doesn’t like wine. Blasphemy I know. I mean I’m so high class with my ice cubes but seriously, how could you not like vino. He drinks, yuck, Gatorade and Diet Pepsi. This week’s recipe is something sweet for my sweetie.
Split Second Cookies
2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ cup butter softened
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Your favorite jam or jelly, try strawberry or raspberry.
Sift together dry ingredients. Blend in remaining items except jam and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Divide into 4 parts, shape each into role, 12” long, ¾” think. Make a depression ¼ to 1/3 inch deep, lengthwise down center with the back of a knife. Fill with jam. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. After it cools slightly, slice into 1 inch pieces.
But, he has a heart of gold. Stopping for ladies with flat tires on the freeways and lost puppies. He even got a little misty thinking about walking Sheldon down the aisle next winter. Watching TV in bed last week, an online dating commercial came on, he snuggled up and said, “if I die first I want you to sign up for Match.com so you can be happy.” I don’t even know where to go with that. I’m not wishing anything bad to happen, but do you think Curtis Stone will still be available?
PS-I only need three more followers to reach the magic 500. You all remember when we had a free wine giveaway at 400. So if you read this blog and don’t follow, GET ON IT! I need validation. Good week Team Tuna!
