June's stupid life · Marvin

Project Save This Marriage–Goals.

Bff
Some of us in this house are getting along like peas and carrots.

You know, generally.

I wish you understood how much TIME these two devote to the playing. In the house, out of the house, in the bed at 1 a.m., it doesn't matter.

They do this ludicrously wide opening of the mouth thing, along with devil noises. "Rrrrowwwgrrr." "Rowrowrowrowrrrr." Edsel has learned how to do it, finally, whereas before he just opened his fool mouth and no noise came out. Now his roorwrs are way scarier-sounding than Talu's. He sounds like a Rottweiller, if you want to know the truth. He will probably get big and his brain will snap and he'll eat us all.

Marvin and I were watching them do this the other day, and he said, "We should walk into therapy next time and just totally do that the whole time. Open our mouths at each other and make those noises."

Just the thought of that sent me into a fit of giggles every time I pictured it. The poor therapist. "What I hear you saying is 'Rorrwr, rowrrrr…'

"How does it make you feel when Marvin shows his teefs, June?"

Rorwr
Anyway. One of the things we are supposed to do, per our beleaguered therapist, is set personal goals for ourselves. We had to set goals for our marriage (goal #1, have one), but now we have to have personal plans as well.

On the way home, I said to Marvin, "I don't have any personal goals. Do you? All I ever do is concentrate on not dying of a disease. Is that a goal?"

Marvin said that wasn't a goal, and that he didn't have one either, and then we remembered I have always wanted to be a go-go dancer, but is that even a possible dream? I know I also want to be a drag queen, but again, impossible?

So, does anyone have any ideas? What personal goals can I set for my own self? Perhaps your suggestions will inspire me.

Also, does anyone have a go-go cage?

  4. Here is a goal that I can 100 percent guarantee will make you happy or your money back:
    Commit to helping someone else (Marvin doesn’t count). Invest time and money into it. If they are less fortunate than you it makes you happy even faster.
    Then, go home, have a glass of wine and watch Marvin work his core on the pole.

  5. I have never been a goal-setter and my dh always thought this was a fault of mine and I must agree. I am a severe procrastinator. My goal this year was to touch every one of my possessions (pack rat). I am overwhelmed with stuff. I have not met my goal or even gotten close, but it will continue to be my goal for a long time.
    I agree with the person who suggested the Golden Rule as a goal. I think it should be a goal for everyone. I am shocked at the way people treat each other out there in the cold, cruel world.

  6. I’d like to add that I love that Melissa is not the only Christian woman around who thinks a pole is not a bad idea. Loved your comment, Melissa. We had some rough years…but this February we will celebrate 20 years. It’s a choice.
    I am so glad June and Marvin are choosing to stick it out.
    He’s a Jewish athiest? Ima hafta google that.
