Honesty, hypothetically speaking

Honesty is the best policy. How many times have you heard that? We all know it's true. Especially with your spouse. I mean, if my spouse 'hypothetically' told me out of pure honesty that he wishes I wouldn't change into my pajamas at 4:30 in the afternoon, because the world gets to see me looking beautiful and then he gets 'pajama girl', that's a great show of pure honesty. At least he's not keeping it to himself, and remaining unhappy about something that can easily be fixed. And like, if my spouse 'hypothetically' told me in addition to that, that he wished my pajamas didn't consist of over sized sweatshirts and over sized pajama pants that could 'hypothetically' be from a 9 month stretch where your body grows beyond belief, and those over sized sweatshirts could 'hypothetically' be navy blue and unattractive, and that he wishes that maybe I wore something a bit prettier where he could actually rub my skin while I sleep, rather than the only skin that is in sight is the skin on my face? I mean if your spouse 'hypothetically' felt this way, you would want them to be honest with you, right? So you could put forth the effort into something that you may have thought wasn't all that important. Speaking the truth has a better outcome than being silent.

This is all hypothetical, of course.

I LOVE THIS - and it's SO true!! My hubby too, has been like, "what's with the sweats in the middle of the afternoon?". Sometimes, it's just so comfy :)

Hypothetically speaking I sort of agree with the husband in this made up story. If you lose your ambition to impress once in a while - the spark will fade.

Hypothetically I try to tell that to this adorably cute guy I know when he is always looking more together to go to work than when he is spending time with me....
