I'm too old for this

Given our contraception debacle, Jay and I are a little wary of enjoying the main course on the sexual menu right now. Yeah, it may be too late but in case it isn't, there's no point in risking another condom breaking before I get my IUD fixed. So yesterday I suggested we just make out, like when we were high school sweethearts and thought we would wait until we were married to have sex (what can I say? 10 years of dating is a looong time). This led to the following text exchange today:

Me to Jay: OMG!! You gave me a hickey! (I'm expecting a response along the lines of "Oops/I'm sorry/I forgot I'm not a vampire").

Jay to me: Oh yeah! (smiley face symbol)

Seriously? How did I not notice this happening and put a stop to it? I'm 34 years old and wondering how I can casually wear a turtleneck to my two zumba classes tonight. Grr.

I'm really not a nymphomaniac. It just looks like it.

    1. Ah, good plan! I could also just dance really energetically, so no one can get a clear view of my neck.

    1. LOL that was Sherilin's other suggestion: circle it with marker and write hickey on my neck to completely own it.

  3. Or depending on the location, you could just keep a gym towel around your neck during class.

    1. Also a good option. I'm going to try to cover it up with makeup, but that usually isn't very successful. At least as far as I can remember from 18 years ago.

    1. It's kind of ridiculous the things that happen to me. But at least they make for entertaining blog posts.

    1. It's not really what I had in mind! I couldn't believe it when I tried to brush the smudge off my neck and it didn't move.

  10. I suddenly really, really want to give my husband a hickey before we to to Christmas dinner at his parents' tomorrow night.

    I found your blog through ICLW and I've added it to my Google Reader feed because I'm loving it! I keep thinking I should join one of those blog hop things, but I'm still trying to figure out what my blog IS, so I hesitate.

    1. A few days ago he gave me another!! I couldn't believe it. I really enjoyed your blog too but didn't see any way to follow it. I think I'll add your url to my rotating "yawpers" list at the bottom of my blog, so I'll see your new posts.

      Blog hops are good and bad (if you read the post right after this one, you'll see what I mean). I still do them because I've met some really great people that way. But it can be frustrating when you put a lot of effort out to visit everyone and read and comment on their posts, and no one comes by to say hello to you. I guess nothing's perfect.

      Nice to meet you and I look forward to reading your posts! :)
