When your wife watches a video about how to flirt with women

best writing coach ever Carrie Jones

On Thursdays, my co-podcaster, Shaun, and husband guy, takes over the blog.

He’s adorable. I hope you’ll read what he says even if he does occasionally sound like a surfer dude from the 1990s or Captain Pontification. And no, we don’t always agree. 🙂


The video was totally interesting! And not because I’m “lacking something.”

So, life can really bring you down sometimes. I know it, and you know it. There is no denying it! I am about to be brutally honest with you and tell you that in light of the fact that 50% of you are probably down right now, I am going to tell you a funny story. This story just occurred. It is literally the impetus of my sudden blogpost idea which I have been struggling with all day. Please remember that this story is 100% true and nobody here is better than anyone else.

I was in the kitchen performing my nightly husbandly duties of cleaning up after dinner and loading the dishwasher. Carrie was in the office supposedly working. However, I could hear a video playing and frequent bursts of enraptured, young girl laughter, dare I say giggling.

I asked, “What are you watching?”

Carrie replied, “A video entitled how to flirt with girls.”

Internally, I got enraged. I knew this day would come and she would decide that she wanted to be with a soft and caring woman instead of a butthead smelly man! But as I watched her and saw the smile on her face and how she was wiggling in her office chair I had a thought.

“Babe,” I said with a hint of amusement in my voice. “What do you think of that video?”

“I kind of like it.”

“Babe,” I was really confused now. “You do know that he is trying to teach guys how to flirt with women?”

“What?” Carrie responded without so much as a glance in my direction.

“Babe,” I had it figured out now and was holding back the laughter. “He is trying to teach guys how to flirt with women. He isn’t talking to you, personally.”

Carrie slammed her hand down on her mouse, clicked a couple of times, and shot up out of her office chair.

You are a liar, Shaun!” she loudly accused before retreating to the restroom.

I have been having such a good time with this ever since it happened. I am afraid for Carrie to read this, but I know that the greatest woman in the world has a very good sense of humor. I also know that I have to find this video and watch it because my wife is lacking something, and I sure don’t want anyone else filling that void!

Remember to tell people that you love them as often as you can!

Remember to always LOVE YOUR WAY THROGUH IT!!

I hope that you laughed,
