That Man Of Mine.

He has a few friends round for beer, That's fine, they're full of good cheer, But what is the reason He calls it a 'coven' If I have some girlfriends round here? When I ask if he'd like some tea, He declines, so I get some for me, Settle back in my chair. But as soon as I'm there, He wants some - how annoying is he! From the 'remote' it seems I am banned, Falls asleep with it clutched in his hand, I prise it away, He'll wake and he'll say, "I'm watching that ! " - annoys me no end! And I've not yet mentioned the seat That covers the toilet so neat, It does make me frown When it is not down No matter how much I entreat When I said I want a new broom, He asked (and it spelt his doom) If I'd crash-landed mine, That was well out of line, He's sleeping now in the spare room! And perchance if this should be read, By my husband, will he see red?, Should I run for cover, Will it be be all over, Perhaps we'll no longer be wed? I pinched the idea for the second last verse (the broom) from a joke that @nanette64 sent me, but my man is guilty of all the rest.(I luv 'im really!)

I trained my man early...leave the seat down. Remember those pretty fluffy sear covers for the toilet lid? When they are on the lid, the rim must be held tight because the balance point changes, I promised not to put one on the toilet if he remembered to put the seat down. In forty one years he has rarely forgotten.....the other things ( not the broom) he is guilty of. Nicely written.

@jaboUK I hadn't been aware that those fluffy covers made it difficult for a man. When I found out. I had an awesome tool to negotiate with. Now I know when we have male guests.....my father also tended to leave the seat up. If I got up in the night it was.....Grrr....then, at least I know he was up once.

@jaboUK lol yep Sometimes my dad will ask me if I want something from the kitchen and I say "no thank you" but change my mind when he sits down lol I get it myself though. I can be quite indecisive at times.....I think...

@jaboUK Happy New Year! I was catching up an a few episodes of "I'm Sorry I haven's a Clue" earlier, I thought you might appreciate this short snippet from the crypts:

That's cute! I didn't think that a man was capable of watching television without holding onto the remote, my husband and my son are not. But that's all right with me because they are both trained and leave the seat down-even the cover because of my constant nagging!

So , when at home the remote is always his . Good thing , when i am at the bedroom and hubby comes in to watch , there i no choice to watch except for two channels . Though , i give it to him , as long as the soap i am watching at night has finished already .

@jaboUK Ah, I understand that. One of my worst ever memories was coming to Belfast from Africa in mid winter and having to sit on my grandmother's stone cold toilet seat. I've never been so shocked in my life. How do people live like this I wondered!

Oh my you made me laugh, we all go through that. The remote is something I will never touch, I have my own TV in the Family room while his is in the living room. I like mine better, I can tape shows while I'm not on it and watch them later...The toilet seat is not a problem I trained him young... My hubby has mentioned the boom for transpiration too... Fun to read!!!

@jaboUK My oldest son was living with us for a year and he had the TV in the family room, its quite the TV and It will allow you to tape shows while watching others. When he got his act together and moved out, he left the TV for me because he knew I loved it.... I tape my favorite shows so I can watch them when I want to, i never miss a show now because its there waiting for me...(that is the only reason we have two TV's)
