The “Bad Husband” Chronicles

Just another day for you and me in Paradise

A Saturday sprinkle to add to your Wheaties

Posted by mozziestarlet on November 15, 2008

Find a guy who calls you ‘beautiful’ instead of ‘hot,’ who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep.  Wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, and who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU. The one who turns to his friends and says, ‘that’s her.’

Just a few of my favorite quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson, US essayist & poet (1803-1882):


“Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”

“The age of a woman doesn’t mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.”

 “God enters by a private door into every individual.”

“Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.”

 “Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.”




I adore this scene from the movie, “As good as it gets”…

    Awesome blog.

    “This bargain’s good ; if when I’m old, I be
    Inflamed by thee,
    If thine own honour, or my shame and pain,
    Thou covet most, at that age thou shalt gain.
    Do thy will then ; then subject and degree
    And fruit of love, Love, I submit to thee.
    Spare me till then ; I’ll bear it, though she be
    One that love me.”
    –John Donne

    Once, after attending a marriage counselling session with my husband, I asked him..”what do you like about our sessions?” He stopped and thought for a second and then said..”I get to learn more about you.” I guess this is my own equivalent to this scene. Not a perfect man..but my perfectly flawed man.

    Hi Tash,

    Yes, we all have flaws. But, I believe the flaws are the seasoning that make us who we are. The trick lies in realizing these flaws, and not allowing them to define who we are.

    Thank you for reading and for commenting. My best wishes to you and yours. 🙂
