Stuff I’ve already done
According to a survey done by Wilkinson’s Sword (a shaving company), these are the top 20 things that women try to change about their men.
I’ve had a good hard look at the list and I must say, there’s only one thing on it that I’ve actually tried – and succeeded – to change about the boy. Swearing. We both swear a bit occasionally but he is banned from saying the “c” word around me. I find it horribly offensive for reasons I can’t explain, I don’t even like the sound of the word. It only took me three times to say “please don’t say that word around me” and I haven’t heard it now for seven years.
Why haven’t I tried to change anything else? Well for starters, he is who he is and I don’t actually want to change him. Secondly, he’s adult enough to know how to dress and when to shower. Okay he can’t cook but he makes up for it by doing the dishes every night.
Oh, and although he doesn’t actually cleanse and moisturise daily, he does use Clarins Men’s Face Scrub in the shower every morning. And I get in trouble if there isn’t a new tube in the cupboard when he runs out 🙂
