Last week I did something kinda mean.
Scratch that, I did something really mean.
I have been encouraging P to get healthy with me for a while. There has been some push back, but that is not going to deter me. I keep chipping away at it, one day at a time.
Last week P was complaining about his joints hurting. He drives a lot during the day, and sitting in the same position in the car traveling some days 100+ miles running all over town, his joints can get stiff. I suggested he take some fish oil, because it really helps me keep my joints lubricated. As much good as fish oil does my body, it also has some horrible side effect---hello fish burps. Sick. Because of that, I take my vitamins at night. One night right before bed I was taking my vitamins and P walked by and I handed him a handful of vitamins too.
He looked at all the pills in his hands and asked me what they were. I gave him the break down: 2 fish oil, 1 echinaecea, calcium, and a multi vitamin. He looked at me after I explained what everything was and took them like a champ, one by one. I looked at him grabbed some water and took them all at once like a man.
Repeat said situation again for a few nights in a row.
Finally, a few days later, I looked at P and started laughing. When he asked me what I was laughing at, I stopped with eyes wide and stared at him. When I finally gathered myself together, I looked at him, and said "ok, I have something to confess to you."
P responded "What do you have to tell me?"
I looked at him with guilt all over my face and said, "You know how I have been giving you some vitamins before bed?"
P replied "Yea."
I said " You know the multi that I have given you?"
He looked at me perplexed "Yes."
"Well, the multi is meant for women."
He immediately grabbed his chest with both hands, looked down and said "I thought they felt bigger," and then started laughing with me.
Thank goodness he was not mad, but he has not taken any vitamins since.
