Don’t You Love Me Anymore?


“Sorry, honey, but I’m just not in the mood right now,” James told his wife.

“You never seem to be in the mood anymore,” Carolyn said, her eyes tearing up. “Don’t you love me anymore?”

“Of course I love you,” James reassured her. “But I just don’t feel like it right now.”

“You never seem to be feel like it these days.”

“What are you talking about?” James asked. “We’ve done it three time in the past ten days.”

“You’re keeping count?” Carolyn said indignantly.

“No, I’m not keeping count, but I think we’ve been doing it too often lately.”

Carolyn glared at her husband. “Too often? Really? We used to do it much more often when we were first married. You were never not in the mood back then.”

Knowing he couldn’t win this, James relented. “Okay, fine,” he said, “Get your coat and we’ll head to Denny’s for dinner and then go see the movie.”

Carolyn beamed. “See,” she said. “I always know how to get you in the mood.”

    Decades ago I had to see all the Meg Ryan movies with my wife, I wasn’t sure I’d survive married life. But over the years it’s gotten better. My daughters saw the twilight movies with my wife, thank goodness for daugters and my son and I are able to watch more football, thank goodness for sons!

      My wife still makes me see chick flicks periodically. But, as they say, happy wife, happy life.

      I “made” my husband see foreign/art films when we were dating. Every so often, I turn to him and say, “I’m so so sorry I made you see such weird films. If you want to see Fast & Furious #10,000, I will go with you.” I also watch war documentaries with him as penance. War isn’t unlike a chick flick, unnecessary casualties.

        My wife still makes me see foreign/art films. Actually, many of them are quite good. (Shh. Don’t tell my wife that. She thinks I’m making a great sacrifice because of how much I love her.)

          The long con! The only one my husband seems to remember is Swimming Pool. Gee, I wonder why?

    This sounds just like my house. Except it’s my wife who is rarely in the mood to watch. I have to go to my room, alone, whenever I’m in the mood.
