In which I break my own cardinal rule of blogging

When I started blogging a few years ago, I vowed to never use my blog as a platform to gripe about my marriage or my husband, until today.

Matt has a man cold.

If you are unfamiliar with the man-cold phenomenon, watch this (hilarious!) video, and I think you will find that it is familiar.

This condition arouses none of my natural sympathies. I am a very bad person.

(Okay, I admit that I do feel a tiny bit bad for him, but that’s only because he’s supposed to take 18 deacons winter camping tonight in the mountains. But I would feel bad about that regardless of his “condition.”)

Oh, p.s., today’s the last day to let me know if you want tickets to girls night out.

  1. Yeeeeeep. I want to say more…but I won’t because just thinking it probably makes me a bad person. The man-cold drives all desire to be warm and nurturing outta me, especially if I have/had the same bug.

  2. If it helps…my husband once complained to me about “having gas” while we were at a family reunion in Colorado. I was super pregnant and it was late at night and he was keeping me up complaining about his stomach hurting. I’m like…get over it!

    So he goes and complains to his mom about his “gas”…she responds all compassionately and it turns out he had appendicitis….went to the ER that night…surgery the next day.

    Scoring points for being a good wife even as a newly wed, yeah, that’s me! 🙂

    The man cold is a really kicker though, I agree! 🙂

  3. That is too funny! Perfect video for what your describing…yes, been there done that and felt the same way that you described. Hope that he feels better though and wishing you Nurse Stephanie a great day, something tells me that you’ll make the best of it! 🙂

  4. Ha Ha, glad my husband’s not the only one. It always happens when I’m sick (although (un)surprisingly often lacks many of the physical symptoms such as a real fever and actually throwing up). I also have no patience for his complaining when he refuses to take medicine.

    Griping in the comments on other people’s blogs doesn’t count as breaking that same cardinal rule does it?

Please say something. I've said enough. :)
