Make up sex – maybe.

Hot Nerd:  (with a twinkle in his eye) Let’s go upstairs.

Me: (steely) And what do you think is going to happen upstairs?

Hot Nerd:  Um… I’m… I’m going to apologize.

Me:  Yes. You probably are.


I thought maybe I had gotten through to him.  Perhaps it dawned on him that he shouldn’t have spoken to me the way he did a few hours before. Maybe he realized that with the lack of sleep, and the crushing stress that I’ve been under – the last thing I needed was him criticizing me.  Maybe he really did hear me when I was yelling over whatever it was he was trying to say at the same time.


(upstairs in bed)

Hot Nerd:  (turning me to face him) I’m sorry.

Me:  You are?

Hot Nerd: (pulling my face closer) Mmm hmm.

Me:  For what exactly?

Hot Nerd: *blink* (pause) You know.

Me:  Tell me.

Hot Nerd: (squinting) Uh… you know… what I said…

Me:  Which part?

Hot Nerd: … and what I did…

Me:  Mm hmm.  Which was?

Hot Nerd:  Come on!  You know!

Me:  Yeah, I know!  Do you?

Hot Nerd: (laughing, shrugging, and waving his arms) Yes! All of it… I’m sorry for all of it.  Everything that happened.  Sorry. (trying to kiss me) Oh, come on!

Me: (laughing)  You have no idea.


The horn dog had no clue what he was supposed to be sorry for.  Or maybe he wasn’t sorry for anything.  This of course makes me feel unheard and dismissed.

So, no make up sex was had.

Just sex.

The talking it out, seeing each others’ side, and officially making up will come soon.

It has to…

because I don’t want the next time we fight about tin foil to be just as ugly.

    Those fights about seemingly inconsequential things like tin foil can sure get nasty. Been there!

    You said tinfoil, and my mind immediately leaped to how many ways one could reasonably argue about tinfoil. And there are so many ways. Stand your ground.

    Make-up sex is great. Regular ol’ sex’ll get it done too, some days.

    hey… sometimes angry sex is good.

    What a very surprising post. I hope you had a great time spending that moment with him. What did you do after talking? Thank you for sharing your story on this blog. It was really fun reading it.

  5. Ha ha ha! Well at least you got some. That counts for something. Maybe it was a stress reliever for both of you. I hope he realized that what he did in the end.

    Ha! Hey, we all need it sometimes.

  7. Marta says:

    The real question is, do you reuse tinfoil?

  8. Why is it always something like tinfoil that starts the world wars? Sigh. Here too.

  9. Venus says:

    God I know that feeling, and it sucks. Especially in re: the tinfoil.

    But hey, look at the bright side, at least you’re getting laid (which I imagine is almost close to impossible w/ two kids).
