Many years ago, in a lifetime far, far away, my husband was just brutally honest about anything. Thankfully, he has learned quite a bit of tact in the last decade. When I saw this video by Julian Smith, it made me laugh so hard!!! That was Ben!! Well, okay, not really his tactic, but I will never forget the dinner/game party we were throwing in Chicago with friends. He stood up from a game not quite finished and announced to everyone that “I am tired and heading to bed now. You all need to leave.”
I was floored and embarrassed, our guests were in shock. He has never done that again, but I think if he had seen this video, he would have happily done something similar… just to see what the reaction would have been.
Babe, thanks for not doing that anymore, I love you!
