A conversation with the husband about Sven

HIM: Nothing much going on, so I’m going to stay home and work on the office today.

ME: You’re staying home? But I’m supposed to start sweating with Sven today!

HIM: So? You can exercise while I’m home.

ME: Exercise? Why do you assume it’s exercise? You think I’m fat, don’t you? Why don’t you just call me hey you, fat lady from now on?

HIM: What the hell am I supposed to think sweating with Sven is?

ME: Maybe I have a hot new Scandinavian lover.

HIM: So you’d rather I jump to the conclusion you’re a cheating slut?

ME: Shut up.

HIM: So who is Sven and why are you sweating with him?

ME: *sulking now* It’s a writing thing. I have to write five pages every day.

HIM: Then why are you still bitching at me?

I’m off to a pissah start.

    I’m going to start a writing thing with a really hot guy pic. Or a smart girl, whichever. There should be visual alternatives to Mr. So Needs A Towel And A Shower. Happy sweating.

    See? He obviously doesn’t care that you’re sweating with Sven. Get to writing. :whip:

    Men are such boobs sometimes…so now that you’ve had your morning stimuli…

    Hope you aren’t reading this (or any other blogs)…and instead writing…and it’s going so well you aren’t sweating a bit… :coffee:

    When I saw the Sweating with Sven pic/logo I thought it was an athletic program…

    Don’t hurt me…

    I always thought that, too.

    Not that I thought about it too long. That picture always makes me shudder and ewww, so I stop thinking about it in self defence
