I shared this advice on FB, and thought it would be a good idea to share it here, too. Men, never tell your wife that any part of her body resembles a sharpei puppy. Seriously. No matter how cute you think sharpei puppies are, it's not a compliment. Here's the Whole Story (Warning: contains some personal details that may be a little TMI for some.) The Furry Guy and I were talking yesterday about the changes a woman's body can go through as the years pass, including the results of childbirth and yo-yoing weight. I mentioned a particular area of my body that hasn't changed in years, no matter what I've done. He turned to me and said, "Yeah, it's kind of like a sharpei puppy." During the ensuing vvveeerrrryyyyyy long pause, he assumed a deer-in-headlights expression. I said, "I can't believe you just said that." As he came toward me and enveloped me in a hug, he said, "Sharpei puppies are cute. I love sharpei puppies." All I could do was laugh. Yes, he's still living. I have assured him he will be living with this one for a long, long time. I've even barked at him a few times. It makes me laugh to think about it. Needless to say, I didn't marry The Furry Guy for his way with words.
