All I want is bacon

Hubby asked me what did I want for Mother's Day. I told him I didn't want him or the children to go out and get gifts just to say Happy Mother's Day because we are mothers everyday. Not only that, I could not think of anything I wanted or needed, so I told him I didn't want anything....except for one thing, and that was for him to get up and cook me some bacon. The point is not whether I needed it or not, the point is that I wanted bacon. End of discussion. I went in the bathroom and fixed my hair to get ready for Sunday service and when I came out, hubby was just sitting there. Actually he was still stretched out across the bed. I asked him if he had gotten up to fix my bacon. He said he had not. I was like, Really! Really!

I went in the kitchen and put a few pieces of bacon in the microwave and continued doing what I was doing. Hubby came in and asked what was I doing. I said that I am fixing myself some bacon and that I was not about to beg him to do it for me. He said he didn't think I was for-real and so he didn't bother getting up. I told him not to worry about it and that the very next time he ask me to do something, that he should think of this moment when he did not get up. We went on to church and one person came up to me and hubby and said, "So, did you do anything special for your wife for Mother's Day." I just looked over and hubby with a smirk and said, "Well, did you?" He bust out laughing and said that I will not be able to let him live this one down. Everything he said or asked for that day, I said, "But if only you had've fixed my bacon...."

Later that evening, I had to take my daughter to a concert on the beach which was part of her class assignment. When I got back home, I smelled bacon. Hubby said to me that he had cooked me some bacon and that he would even make me a BLT. I accepted his offer and that was one good sandwich. He said when I ask for bacon, he will make sure he get up and cook me some bacon. Afterall, that is all I asked for. He was forgiven.

  1. How sweet. People need to take requests for bacon seriously. Every time I've ignored someone's desire for bacon, I had to pay dearly for it.
