in which I get another compliment; I think.

pjs panthere

Climbing into bed, Mr FD looked at me and said, “To think, I still get excited sleeping next to old, decrepit you.”

“I am not decrepit,” I retorted.

“You’re beautiful.”

“I am not decrepit… well, maybe I am. I am not old, though.”

“You’re beautiful.”

“I am middle aged, not old.”

“You’re beautiful.”

“So, I am beautifully old and decrepit? How is any of that meant to be a compliment?” I asked.

“Your beautiful.”

“I have a headache.”

  1. Beautiful like the Venus de Milo, another beauty whose age is best not mentioned? But honestly, he could have left out the “decrepit.” He may have been trying to say how much he still adores you after so many years of marriage, but wording is important.

  2. This reminded me of similar conversations with my husband. Somehow, I find it very hard to believe he finds me beautiful after all this time. They mean well. And we can’t take the compliment graciously.
