He’s A Keeper

My husband and I have some interesting conversations during dinner. At work, he is the only man on his team and he often comes home from work with tales of interesting work conversations that he was forced to over hear. He uses the work forced because there really isn’t anyplace for him to escape to. He works in a cube in the middle of other cubes, so he basically hears everything. And apparently most of the women have no real filter and nothing is off limits to talk about. The other day he came home and while we were putting dinner on the table he asked how many products I use on my skin. I looked at him and of course asked him why he was asking. He said that one of the women that he worked with was talking about how long it took her to get ready in the morning.

Me: “So how long did she say it takes her?”

Hubby: “Two hours. She said she has 28 different things she uses on her face every day.”

Me: “What the…who takes two hours to put on makeup?”

Hubby: “She does. She has a list.”

Me: “A list of what?”

Hubby: “A list that tells her what order to put things on. She lines them all up on the counter and checks them off one by one. She said if she goes out of order she has to start over and she might be late for work.”

I was busy trying to figure out what a person could possibly use on their face that would add up to 28.

Hubby: “So how many do you use?”

Me: “Let’s see, I use a facial cleanser in the morning and a moisturizer with sunscreen. Then I use a micellar cleansing water at night and then I use the facial wipes during the day to refresh. So that would be four items.”

Hubby: “Oh, she wasn’t counting cleansers. The twenty-eight was just her makeup.”

Me: “Then that would be a total of zero for me.” I have rosacea, so make-up just irritates my skin, so I don’t use it.

Hubby smiled and kissed my cheek,”I know. You don’t need all that stuff. You’re beautiful just as you are.”

Yep, he’s a keeper!!!

  1. She sounds like she’s OCD. I should introduce her to my assistant Toby. If they lived together they’d never get out of the house in the morning.
