Food Fight

Today I received a message from a friend.  I have promised to call her, "she who shall not be named".  She handed her husband a plate of pork roast, mashed potatoes & corn to eat while in the tub.  She offered to take a picture and post it for me.  He declined. 

So, this is the thing about marriage.  Sometimes you have to do things for the good of both of you.  Sometimes you have to do things because it's good for the world.  I think sharing this laugh together is good for the world.  That was my argument.

I think he still declined.

I wonder if he knows how lucky he is to have a wife who delivers food to the tub.  I know how rare a luxury that is.  I also think he needed to know that I don't require a photo of any parts, just a photo of the food, with say, a faucet or some bubbles in the background. 

He still declined.

I hope the marriage tension this blog has caused eases and that perhaps a mutual appreciation can occur.  Unfortunately I have no yummy photo to share.  But,  it is enough to know I am not alone.  To know that other people are out there.  People secretly saving time or recharging with a long soak and some fine dining. 

Today. . . in the epic battle that is marriage vs. food in the tub. . . . this blog lost.

  1. After me reading him to posts & sharing the background of "Kori's food in the tub" I was granted picture taking permission. Actually he thought I took one the first time anyway. He would like everyone to know that pork roast, mashed potatoes & corn is a difficult meal to eat in the tub, but he survived. Guess I don't have to be nameless any longer. :-)
