Can You Laugh At Yourself ?

One thing, that Mr. Prag and I do is laugh often at each other and at ourselves. We believe that every relationship must have a healthy sense of humor. Every long term relationship or marriage gets to a point where your partner knows you almost as well as you know yourself. If a partner takes themselves too seriously things can turn ugly. When this happens you can sense it, even when they keep their reaction to themselves. Their mood changes, as do their mannerisms, their tone of voice , and their body language. A sense of humor creates a safe environment and keeps the relationship more fun and loving.

Below are a list of things that we constantly joke about with one another...

Things I tease him about:

-Watching the same old movies over and over. He has memorized lines to many , many movies. I personally never want to see the movie "TORA, TORA, TORA" or "El Dorado" again.

-His hard ass approach and behavior to situations. This is when I till tell he is being a "dick".

-His huge balls. The largest I've every seen!

-He combs his hair more than me. No wonder he is losing it...he is brushing it all out!

-Hogging the bed at night and talking in his sleep. Bedtime smack-down. I must fight for my side of the bed. He shouts "sex words" in his sleep. "Fuck You!" and "PUSSY!"

-Reading the newspaper on the toilet and taking forever. We only have one bathroom!

-Wiping his dick off with his underwear before bed. Is this really necessary? Does he think it really cleans it? Perhaps, he is taking inventory before bed?

-He licks and bites at his mustache while watching TV. Is this a form of a late night snack?

-Taking complete control over the living room TV and remote control. He switches during commercials between a show we are watching old movies and I hate to miss a minute of a show. G-r-r-r!

Things he teases me about:

-Farting in the morning. He says, "You're a real class act and a piece of work."

- My obsession with shoe buying. "Honey, you are the only person I know that can buy six pairs of shoes at once."

- My boobs. He often comments on their size and likes to grab my nipples. "They are soooo big!"
My reply, "Yes, I KNOW their big...I carry them around all the time!"

- How long it takes me to shop. "You touch everything in the store!"

- My typing, my grammar, and my spelling. Two fingers...and many mistakes.

- My driving. He will never let me drive him around. I scare him. My music, my lipstick, my cell phone, and my speed.

- I stick my tongue out of my mouth when focused on a task. Washing dishes, cooking...

- I pick at myself. My nails, a pimple, a scab, and my contacts. "Pick...pick...leave them alone!"

- My "big girl" pants. The women's jockey underwear I wear when I have my period. "You look like Baby Hughie!"

It is all done in good fun. We try and never take the humor too far. Laughing brings us closer.

Can you laugh at yourself or take teasing from others?

Mr. Fire and I always tease each other. Lately there is a rumor going around about us that we are splitting up. So when we see people we joke about it and we also joke about it with each other.

Anything for a giggle.

These are things I look forward to... wasn't married long enough back then to get to this point, and have never been in a LTR long enough to do this either. (But I'm going to have to draw the line on "TORA TORA TORA"! Sure hope she likes those old war movies!)

I like the old war movies...just not having to watch them 100 times over and over. Any movie can get really old, really fast, with that much play..!

Just another reason that I love you guys so much. We used to laugh at each other and with each other. But now.....he always thinks that I'm picking on we don't laugh as much any more. Sad, isn't it? But maybe someday.

Pardon me, but newspaper reading in the bathroom and remote-control control are God Given Man Rights!!!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

Those must be the 11th and 12th commandments.
