What is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side
We have a pretty wide circle of friends and even wider group of friends of friends, to us they're barely acquaintances. Sometimes mouse watches these people and wonders what they're like in their private life. A few years ago, someone mouse wasn't acquainted with at all asked her if she was "Taken in Hand." in fact, mouse wrote about the incident, here.
It's a terrifying prospect. Yet, while she would never, ever presume as much or ask anyone, there are people we know that mouse wonders about.
There are people you can't help but wonder about. The women who get together and talk endlessly about how stupid their husbands are. Would they be just as loud or vocal if their own husband was just standing behind them? That actually happened some time ago, we were at a party and the women were gathered, as we tend to do, and one wife was griping, another joined in and soon they were all complaining. As mouse stood to leave she saw one of the husbands standing there. He was bringing his wife a drink. It had be hard, or perhaps he was used to it, or spoke just as ruthlessly about her.
Now, let's be clear about something, while mouse would love to say she's not at all the type to engage in that kind of behavior. There are times she does, but it's quite different. Normally she'll mention when they discuss how sloppy their own husbands are, mouse will point out that living with "Felix Unger" isn't a cakewalk either. Yes, he's quite the neat nick. He also leaves the toilet seat up and each morning wrecks the bathroom.
We have "neat" garbage. It's like he plays Tetras when he throws things away to maximize the space in the can. He can go away for a month with just one carry on bag. So, yes, sometimes mouse will lightly engage in that type of talk
When the topic shifts from their husband's to life in general that's usually when mouse checks out. The way they all talk, it's horrible but mouse doesn't see it that way at all. In fact she can't fathom life without Daddy in it. Despite and maybe a little because of his flaws, he does make mouse better. Ok, she does pay more attention to little details that she normally wouldn't have given a thought to. That's because of him. He tends to notice everything, but often doesn't mention that he does.
Still mouse has wonder a little about some people we know, what's hidden in their nightstand? Are some of our friends privately kinky? This leads to another thought...Do they wonder about us?
