Day 5-Love is not rude

THE DARE:
"Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only."

As soon as I read this I thought, "How in the world am I going to get hubs to answer this without asking me why I'm asking him?" Because he has no idea what I'm up to with this whole Love Dare, I just know he's going to want to know why I all of sudden I want him to tell me three things he doesn't like about me...

Who does that?

So I've put it off long enough. I just got off the phone with him. He's at work. Busy. Not sure if it's the right time to ask, but oh well. When exactly is the right time to ask this???

I decided to just nonchalantly throw it out there in a call I needed to make to him anyway.

"I called about those medical bills. We can just toss them. The balance on them is zero."

"Oh, awesome!", he says.

"So, how's your day?", I ask trying to drag out the call long enough to figure out how I'm going to word my question.

"Ok. busy." Perhaps I should let him go. It's like ripping off a band-aid. Just do it!

"Well, if you had to pick three things about me that irritate you what would they be?", I ask this as if I'm asking him when he's getting off work.

"What? Why are you asking me that?" Oh geez! Here we go.

"Oh, just answer. The first three things that come to mind."

"I don't know. That's a loaded question. Have you been watching Oprah?"

I laugh. "Just try. I know one without you even telling me."

"What is it?", he says.

"Yelling."

"Yeah. That's irritating.", he confirms.

"Ok, you try. Two more."

"Ummm, I hate it when you clean the shower and don't put a new wash rag in there for me. Then when I go to take a shower, I don't have one."

LOL! "Ok."

"One more."

"Ummmm...when you got to the bathroom with the door open. I hate that!"

I bust out laughing, as I think about typing that.

"Ok, thanks, babe."

Well, what's more rude than your wife using the pot with the door open??

I'm not modest, I can't help it.

I'm always trying to talk to him, and he's always running in the other direction.

This was the funniest day so far! I cannot imagine what he thinks I'm up to. He's probably scratching his head right now.

My husband would have said the same thing about watching Oprah :O)
You don't sound very annoying if that is all he could come up with ♥

Hi! New here.. just saw you at mama's nextwork site. I see you're doing the Love Dare. This was GREAT! I have to tell you, for me, this was the hardest time in my life..ever. I started doing it "just to do it" with nothing else going on. I cannot tell you how I/We were challenged with about every day being put to the ultimate test. Prayers for you for a great Love Dare challenge, it's not for the faint of heart! :)
Blessings!
