Oh yes, I’m at it again; listening to the smut that is morning talk radio.
Yesterday’s topic revolved, once again, around compliments. Except instead of “back-handed” ones, this time around it was what a woman would love to hear her significant other say to her.
It started with the comment that apparently Sarah Silverman had made about her new boyfriend. She said ,”I think he’s the first guy in a decade who’s given me any kind of compliment, like saying I’m pretty or anything.”
Which, of course, had the men on the morning show saying, “Yeah, like pretty okay , that is.” And I admit, I chuckled a bit. But then I thought, “Well, yeah, she could be pretty …” Which was exactly what the women on the radio voiced as well. Then men on the show countered that the women’s response was the male version of “pretty okay.”
Of course, the men were right in that statement. So from there, the discussion went on to what women would absolutely love to here from their significant other. Specifically, what ONE word would you love to hear at the end of this phrase: “You are so ___.”
So of course Hubby turned to me and said, “What would you want to hear me say?”
I sat next to him in the passenger seat quietly contemplating that same thought. And finally after being pestered for a few minutes, I finally answered with: “I need one word to cover both smart and sexy.”
And Hubby turned to me, grinning ear-to-ear, and said,”Smexy?”
Uh, no. Somehow, I had this peculiar impression of … I don’t know. Smelly and … well, you get the point.
Consequently, I spent all day yesterday and this morning trying to come up with the one word that could tie both smart and sexy together. And the only word that I could think of is Captivating.
And now, oh Bloggie Friends … what ONE word would you love to hear?

Classy. Mr. Spit calls me classy.
Hmm. Maybe “clever”? That would be a good one. Or “loved”.
I want to be called “smart”. Hubby and I are two different kinds of smart and I really like it when he recognizes my smartness. Of course I recognize it all the time and usually I think I’m smarter than he is…haha.
