Mrs. L Days


In an attempt to make up for the incident with that RUBY tramp, Hubbs has graciously offered to make the next 7 days (including today) "Mrs. L Days." It's sort of like a week-long festival, except that in this case it's a week long attention-lavishing session where he treats me like a princess and buys me nice things and spends many many hours of quality time with me (and NO, that is *not* a moniker for "having sex," you perv!).

Anyway, I think I am going to request a night or two of dining out, a homecooked meal or two, some pretty flowers, and some sort of ruby jewellery (maybe a ring or a bracelet). I've also got us scheduled to go for a walk in the beautiful foliage that only my favourite season can bring, as well as a shopping trip to the biggest mall in town (where I finally get the chance to replace Hubbs' decrepit old gym bag with a fresh-smelling, fancy-schmancy looking new one).

Any other ideas for ways that Hubbs and I can celebrate Mrs. L Days? Keep it clean and keep it creative; I'd love to hear your ideas!

7 days? After a tramp like Ruby I suggest you ask for, nay, demand, a month of 'Mrs. L' days!

And does Stevie Y know you're calling him a perv?

Mrs. Loquacious said...

True, true, IC. I think I should insist on a month-long festival. Maybe even two.

And probably not....yet. =D

Thanks for your contribution Donald. I will kill you later.

A new bed frame. Oh wait, that's what I need. I vote massage.

Natalie said...

I'm with Wobbly, massage is the way to go. If he is no good at them have him sponsor a spa day for you. Then you'll look even more beautiful than normal when he takes you out on the town.

Steven said...

A night of pair programming some awesome Ruby code together?

Completely anonymous said...

RIGHT~!!


I also agree with Steven whoeheartedly - Ruby pair programming sounds like the way to go and I recommend it for all couples.

Mrs. Loquacious said...

I like the massage idea. I think I will add that to the list (although it will come in the spa variety, not the Hubbs type).

As for pair programming Ruby, all I have to say to that is poor Catherine Jane! =P No wonder she turns to WoW for comfort!

Catherine_Jane said...

Damn you get a lot of comments going on your blog - I suppose if I wasn't so busy playing "the game" I could spend more time actually sharing thoughts and feelings and updating more than once a month... I say go with the spa massage! I bet Justice has girly coder hands like Steve and is incapable of giving a decent back rub.

Mrs. Loquacious said...

*gasp* How did you know, Catherine Jane?! ;) Hubbs has nice hands, but they don't have endurance when it comes to working my deep tissue. I like hour-long massages, and my RMT is very skilled and has nice strong hands to help work those muscles!

I can pass along her name if you're looking for a good one!

And yeah, I suppose my blog is more my mistress than anything else, although I actually don't spend copious amounts of time on here either. I just have loquacious readers, I guess ;)

Keep the comments coming, people! =D

Can you get him to watch sappy romance movies with you? I have to settle for action adventure with a hint of smooch... EnJoy it! with all our kids, we finally had to tell them, the first 15 minutes after Himself walks in the door there will be no children inturrupting our self time together.

superstarjo said...

. . . I can see your boobs in your picture.

*puke*

Mrs. Loquacious said...

Massage booked! And yeah, Wynn, every so often I can convince him to sit through the sap in exchange for my sitting through one of *his* movies. The last really sappy one we watched was "The Notebook" on DVD, which he gave commentary throughout, and promptly made fun of in church the next day.

I may force him to sit through a 3-hour Memoirs of a Geisha if he doesn't smarten up! ;)

I think you should make Hubs show you how much he REALLY loves you, so I suggest:

Have him come to your work/school during the day dressed in a toga with attached angel wings, throwing rose petals from a wicker basket. He should run through the halls calling out "Mrs. L, Mrs. L where ARE you?!"

Then, when he finally finds you, he pulls out an MP3 player with an external speaker and sings "Wind Beneath My Wings" to a midi rendition of the song.

He then scampers out of the work/school.

Now, let me tell you, only a man TRULY in love would do THAT for his woman.

Mrs. Loquacious said...

Um...have you *heard* Hubbs sing? If so, you'd understand why this suggestion doesn't demonstrate love *at all*.

Besides, he doesn't do Bette Midler. He does Gowan. ;)

Justice~! said...

Holy *COW*. D'Arcy, this idea is genius!! I will substitute "Wind Beneath My Wings" for "Criminal Mind" and we're all good to go!!!

Mrs. Loquacious said...

Thanks a lot, Darcy. You're my new #1 enemy! =P
