I Have Heard Better

I need some opinions on this.

I was changing to go out and cut the grass when the wife said THIS to me:

"I think your stomach has definitely gotten bigger."

And then she added this a little later:

"I didn't say you were getting FATTER, I said bigger. You can take that any way you want to."

Okay, fair enough. I take it as a fat joke/comment, which I am getting used to (mainly cause I make them about myself).

But that's different than your significant other telling you that you are getting bigger!

Now don't get me wrong, I am not a little guy like my good friend verb or James Van Der Beek, but I am not John Goodman either.

How would you take it? I take it as meaning, honey you are beginning to look like a pig. Do something about it.

But that's me, anyone else have an opinion?

haha... it's funny how we can be so candid with the people we love and think it won't hit them like it would a stranger

personally, i think a gut is necessary on a guy... girls need something to snuggle into

I have the advantage of being 71years of age---keep the stomach in trim-----you DON'T want to be one of those pot bellied old guys when ya get my age. Throw a few toe touchers into your morning routine, eat slower and don't go for seconds---and forget late night snacks, they are killers, otherwise eat, drink and be merry.
