Came across this image the other day and lost an hour or more considering it. The suit is certainly something Daddy would be wearing. It really struck mouse how this really could be a snapshot of us.
Yesterday the thought of the image came crashing back to mouse as Daddy looked at mouse as he tied his tie on the mirror. He reached out his hand and gently touched mouse's cheek. He shook his head.
Not sure why, it was like he was embarrassed. It wasn't like she was looking at him like a piece of man-meat. He's seen that look lots of times...it's just there are times that mouse feels so much love for him. Maybe it shows up that way.
After he left for work, mouse did her four things for him (we can count the first thing as warming his towel). The second thing mouse did was picked up his favorite hot sauce, planned on cooking his favorite meal, replaced a button on one of his shirts and rotated his cuffs links. Ok -- that last one sounded weird.
Daddy has many sets of cuff links but he'll always reach for the same pair. They're nice...but dunno. It's funny it took him a few days before he noticed he was putting on a different pair. They're similar. All his cuff links are kinda similar. But he likes the rotation idea. He looks at them now, tells mouse the stories about them and it's nice for mouse. It made her wish that she'd asked him about each of them before. He's really sentimental about them and it's sweet.
After dinner, as he worked in his study mouse brought him some tea using the pretty silver service. He laughed saying he was receiving the royal treatment and he said it as though he didn't believe he deserved it. Maybe he didn't but it made mouse happy...and he understand those dippy things mouse does. Getting down on her knees, mouse rested her head on his thigh. For once, mouse wasn't thinking of giving him oral -- it was more about being close to him.
Daddy worked for a while longer, then he rolled his chair back and stood, then he reached his hand for mouse to take. We went upstairs to our room and meditated together. No pain, we just wrapped our bodies together and stayed like that. It was very intimate and loving.
