So Much For Counting On Family

So after the sunburn from hell, my back is now mucho itchy and peeling. As you can imagine, the sunburn being on my back and all, I can't reach it to sufficiently scratch or peel it myself. The way I see things, my husband, being sworn to obey during those pesky wedding vows, is duty bound to scratch and peel my back for me. 

Honey, I need you to peel my back, it's driving me crazy.

What!? No way!

What?!?! Whaddaya mean, 'No way', you HAVE to!

No I don't and I'm not doing it. Yuck.

Are you being serious right now?

Uh, yes, I am.

Bullshit, you're peeling my back tonight.

Hmmph!

Later in the evening...

Seriously, honey, I need you to help me.

I'm. not. peeling. dead. skin. off. your. back.

I can't believe this! How am I supposed to get it off?

Use that bushy thing in the shower.

The loofah? That thing only reaches as far as my fingers can reach! You have to do it!

I'll get my belt sander out and do it then.

I'm taking this to the blog....

The next morning...

Aidan! Come here.

Mama, Asher hit me first so I...

Just quit, that's not why I called you. I need your help.

Oh, ok, I'll help.

See my back? I need you to peel all that skin off.

No way, gross, Mom!

Aw fucking hell!

I'm pretty confident that my husband would never peel my back. I can barely get him to rub my feet unless he's going to get something in return.

I haven't visited (anyone) in forever. Love your new layout (even though it's probably not new anymore)! And hope your burn feels better soon. My husband doesn't peel for me either. :(

When even your kids say something is gross, you know there's a line there that may have been crossed. :)

That is too funny... I love to peel sunburn, come on over here and I'll do it!! My husband gets mad when he gets sunburn & I continue to pick - pick - pick!
I don't know if he'd peel for me, hold on......... OK, I asked him, he would do it for me. Gotta love that man! :-)
