“Hun, does my butt look big in these pants you just bought me?”
My husband looked wide-eyed and unsure, worried about what the dire outcome of such a question would be for him as a beloved husband and for me, as a woman, as his loving wife. “No darling, I bought it in your size so it should be just right,” I said and smiled. The only thing that was going right, was my master plan!
I consider myself as one of the lucky women who married their childhood sweethearts. I met my husband, Tien*, when we were both sports mates in the same tennis team in college. Some of my friends thought of him as a dreamboat, and had even joked that he was my trophy boyfriend – hunky and good-looking, but not exactly the sharpest pencil in the box. It was also his simple-mindedness that I love… and which I have also used against him.
