I'm Going on a Diet...

So *that's* why the spousal unit is generally preceded through the front door by a bottle of wine. Best line in the whole article:

In the current study, women consuming more alcohol ate less, particularly carbohydrates -- a finding seen in other studies. Moreover, it's been shown that women tend to expend more energy after drinking alcohol -- more so than that contained in the alcohol.

Hmmm. Now what on earth could account for that?

Because the Unit doesn't need fancy scientific articles to tell him that a nice bottle of wine can help him get lucky.

No one tells us guys this stuff, but we do manage to learn it regardless. But it is nice to have more proof that we men are doing it all just to keep you ladies happy. We give, and give, and give...

True secret: the wine isn't really necessary. It just helps us relax a bit and forget that endless "to do" list in our heads :p

Like I always say, "Men rock!" :)

Well, if you're a cheap date like me, starting the wine before dinner tends to kill my appetite ... for food.

This only seems to work in restaurants. If I'm cooking, it's very easy to drink and eat more.

That's why I always find *two* bottles.

The second is to make her forget where she put the "to do" list she *wrote* for me...

Well now I should think the majesterial sight of the 27" zipper would take care of that...

*running like mad*

One would think the 27" zipper *was* the to do list...

*right behind you*

Oh girl, you are *bad* :p

Last deployment the subject of 'honeydo' lists came up when I was talking with my husband. I said, "Funny, in all these years I've never given you one of those" (like it would make any difference... :)

He wanted to know why women never give their husbands a "Honey, Do Me" list? Now you know why I am extremely careful around this man :p

One, if that's not a hint, I dunno what is.
Two, it's never too late to start.

Well, at the risk of mental images and tmi, the 'Honey, do me' list is mutual...

Posted by: Cricket at March 9, 2010 04:24 PM

Yeah, I wouldn't know anything about someone showing up with a bottle of wine. Too bad...

Don't forget that wine goes great with chocolate. Another tip is fresh pineapple in the hot tub!

You don't need no stinking list!
