Piggy & Pastor

Hi, Bloggers, how's your day goin'? Ah listened to a little bit ov Dear Pastess last night--his show is on far too LATE; people can't possibly listen to de whole fing and then wake up at a decent hour to start their day--anyway, for de past few nights, he's been givin' lovers advice like he does in The Star--although last night his official topic was depression--and ah realized that he's always tellin a lot ov de wives who call him not to punish husbands by shuttin' them out ov de bedroom, but to mediate their own marital disputes. Yet de wives who call seem to keep hintin' that, if they're displeased, de husband "goin' to sleep pon de couch" until every-fing's settled. That still boggles De Piggy's mind, Bloggers. Firstly, a husband would sleep on de couch just because wifey ordered him to do it? Secondly, if he likes de couch as opposed to de bed, that's a whole other talk-show; and finally, ah could never try to punish or spite Mr. Pig by banishin him to de couch or witholdin mi wifely favours when he annoys me, because ah like mi husband too much to do that sort of fing, so I'd be punishin mi own self. He's just a really good sort, thank God, and he doesn't play those mean-spirited games when he's irritated at me. Ah wouldn't want to spite mi-self by banishin' him, also because bein' wif him is one ov life's greatest sources ov enjoyment to me. Ah fink Dear Pastess should tell his radio congregation once and for all to stop callin him wif this silliness about usin' intercourse as a weapon to spite a spouse; that stuff can break up marriages. I've known mi husband for twelve years, and been married to him for almost ten, and so far we've got by wif just lovin' each other. And ah don't care who says I'm "soft" to mi husband; I'm not hung up on provin mi-self to people. Different strokes for different folks, ah guess. Okay, Bloggers, have a great day--and Kiss De Piggy.

Hi Melody-Blogging at 5:15am-how come yu up so early?
I agree with you about not playing stupid immature games with your spouse or significant other. And, I don't believe in using hoochy couchy as a weapon. Me love it too much miself. I don't believe in banishing your loved one to the couch either. Couples that do this sort of thing aren't coming from a place of love but more about who is right. Sometimes being right isn't the solution in certain disagreements. If I had to go to such extremes by playing those sordid mind games, then I wouldn't be with that person in the first place. So with that, make lots of love and more love and not war.

I understand what you saying but when you vex the last thing you want is somebody touching you.I guess the trick is notto let it get outta hand.You can tell I not marrid,right:)

good advice piggy. yea doan understand the banishing ta de couch thing. now if he vex and decide he wanta go on the couch dat is anudda story

Melody said...

Sunshine, Hoochy-couchy!! Da one deh new!!!! Seriously, though, we have a similar view on this. Relationships suffer from that kinda game-playin.
Abeni, yes, sometimes people just want to be left alone--when them upset and so on--but ah don't like de manipulative "Leave me alone, if I don't agree with you," or "Leave me alone, if I can't have my way." That just plain wrong.
Jdid, you an' De Piggy have a different view, man. A husband who get vex and boycott de bed (in favor of de couch or ANYWHERE else) is just as bad as de woman who banish de husband to de couch. Same difference!

I'm not yet married, but I don't like fuss and quarrel. The couch is nice to fall asleep on while watching TV, but I not sure I waan spend de whole night there (or worse in the so called 'doghouse'!) Dr. D.

Melody said...

Exactly, Dr. D! "Doghouse" doan match my perspective either.

Bwoy Melody, sometimes if you stay in the bed, the argument won't done, because one party or the other won't stop talk bout it and work starts at 8:00AM whether oonoo a argue or not, so I can understand when one party or the other walk out the quarrelsome one still
