Oh, married life.
I have never been a great sharer. Let’s just be honest from the jump. I wasn’t sure I would ever be successful in a marriage, because I am so possessive of my time, my space and my things! Thank goodness I married someone I love and is equally respectful, otherwise we would be in a world of trouble. Why? Because he steals all my stuff!
Earlier this week, I see a long hair on my deodorant. I respect the natural life, but I definitely shave my pits- so that means there was a deo-stealing culprit on the loose. My pre-pubescent children have bare armpits as well, and one of them can’t even talk, so I was pretty sure I knew who it was.
In true passive-agressive fashion, I decided to trap him into confessing. I hid my deodorant in a box of tampons, and waited. (He would never look there.) Sure enough, the next morning he comes downstairs while I’m sneaking some quiet coffee time in before the sun is even up. “Hey, um, do you have any deodorant I can use?” Admittedly, I flew off the handle a little… “Oh WHY, TYLER. Where is YOURS? How long have you been out? Why are you stealing mine instead of getting your own!” *Tyler turns around and wanders back upstairs*
The deodorant is on a long list of things he loves to take from me. Other toiletries he prefers of mine are shampoo, face wash, and my razor. MY RAZOR. He also commonly steals my sunglasses, my favorite Pottery Barn blanket, my Star Wars sweatshirt, and my headphones. Is my husband the only one?
The other big thing he loves to claim as his own are snacks that I have picked out for myself. Tyler would live on snacks if he could. I’m not really like that. Therefore, I pick out more indulgent treats for myself since I’m not a full-time snacker like him.
It never fails, though, that when I come home with something awesome for me, Tyler wants that instead of his snacks. Now I understand why my Mom had secret stashes when we were kids…
The newest thing he is stealing from me are the NEW Skinny Cow Chocolatey Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches. I have to admit they are basically amazing. They come in 3 delicious flavors: Vanilla Bean Dream, Ultimate Chocolate and Creamy Caramel. The creamy ice cream with chocolate wafers fully dipped in chocolatey coating is essentially an ice cream sandwich dipped in thick, velvety, chocolatey coating. Could there be anything better?!
Remember, just because it comes in a pink box or smells like a ladies powder room doesn’t mean it’s a turn off for him. Bond over your shared love of indulgent products and enjoy the good life together – just make sure there’s enough for you both! I found mine at Publix, but you can click here to find a location near you that carries them.
