This Is Why I Call Him…

Mom: Dirty Talk Ahead. Read At Your Own Risk.

Mr. Wonderful is taking me away this weekend to Santa Ynez. Being the most thoughtful guy ever, he planned this surprise trip as my birthday present. (There’s a whole back-story on this, involving a puzzle and Google Earth, but I don’t have time for that now.)

We’re going wine tasting, so he needs his nose and mouth to be in proper working order—but unfortunately, this week, he’s been feeling like he is coming down with a cold. So yesterday, we were discussing all the things he should be doing to get better (chicken soup, green tea, sleep). Our IM exchange went something like this:

Him: I think drinking plenty of wine will help.
Me: I think having plenty of s*x will help. (Don’t say I didn’t warn you, Mom.)
Me: Maybe we could try to drink wine and have s*x at the same time and you’ll get better immediately.
Him: We could wear Camelbaks so we don’t spill.

And THAT is why he has earned the name Mr. Wonderful.

Somehow I don't think you should be jealous of me, as you commented yesterday. I mean, you're going up the coast to drink good wine and do kinky stuff. I'm going to a silly book festival...by myself.

On the balance, I'd say you win. :) Have a great trip!

Geekhiker - But I did want to go to the Book Festival. Honest!

Michael C - Thank you. There was no wine spillage...except for the stuff we dumped when we were tasting.

Brookem - It was a perfect weekend. I think wine, Mr. W and the big "S" equal some sort of holy trifecta.

Semi - Thanks! Bday wishes right back atcha. And love the "holla" - cracked me up.

AMOMymous - I tried to tell you! But the story wouldn't have been as funny without all the details...

LOL - I'm sure you did, I'm sure you did. Tell you what, if you know any cute single hiking girls, send 'em my way and next year we'll all go together. *chortle*

Glad you had a good time up on the coast. :)
