I got a message yesterday. It said “Make a new post, faggot.”
So I suppose I will.
I’ve been busy lately, with work, as usual. Summer is always a busy time for me, covering shifts while all my co-workers go on vacation. I’ve also been hitting the gym for an hour a day before work. That’s 13 hours a day gone, not to mention 1.5 hours on the road to and from work. I cannot wait to take some time off and hang out in Vegas with my boys.
Mistress and I celebrated our 2 year Anniversary on the 3rd of this month. Time flies, I suppose. My life is mostly a blur of work and alcohol, so I’m always surprised when some annual event arrives. I rarely even realize it’s my own birthday. I worked on our Anniversary, so we did the actual celebrating a bit earlier in the week. A nice hotel room at a casino in downtown Shreveport, a few clubs and lap dances at the Hustler Club. What’s an Anniversary without a strange woman rubbing her naked body all over you? Ahem.
There are many tricks to maintaining a long and happy relationship. I think the most important is to take care of yourself. That goes for both parties. No beer gut, no flabby upper arms and dress up for each other often. It’s much easier to look forward to seeing your partner when you know she’s waiting in heels and a dress, wearing make-up and looking great. Not so much when she’s always looking dumpy in a pair of baggy sweats.
Money is an important factor in all relationships. People can claim they don’t care about money all day, but the statistics bear out my point. The number one reason for divorce? Financial issues. Money is the primary thing couples argue about, and the main stressor in most relationships. When you can buy what you want and go where you please, the stress level is significantly reduced. I’m not saying money is everything, but it’s the grease that keeps the gears turning.
Never forget that women and children have a lot in common, specifically that they bore easily. While I have no problem spending most of my time at home reading a book, this is not the case for your partner. You need to take her out, travel and find interesting activities that you both enjoy. This is another great way to avoid arguments and stress. Stress kills the libido, avoid it at all costs. And new places add spice to the love life, so traveling is especially good. If you stay in a nice suite and don’t get laid, you’re doing something wrong.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I work all the time, so that’s a fairly easy one for me. For those who don’t live at the job, find things to do separately. Guys, go out with your boys or go watch the game at a friends house. Ladies, go have lunch with the girls and visit your family. If you are both home all the time, don’t be surprised when you find yourself spending all your time in the garage just to get away from her.
That’s all my sage relationship advice for the day. Most of this is common sense, but common sense is highly uncommon.
In other news, my Copperhead snake “Achilles” turned out to be a female. This was made very obvious when I opened her cage and discovered that one snake had magically become seven snakes. That’s a lot of venomous reptiles in one container. I had no idea she was pregnant, nor that she was a she. We live and learn….and try to avoid losing a hand to venom.
Well, we cooked a bunch of chicken fajitas on the grill tonight at work and I ate too much. Time to find a comfortable chair and take a nap. Good night, friends.
