W is for wine and whine

My guy and I had dinner one evening at the Olive Garden restaurant. I introduced him to this place when we were both in New Jersey a few years ago. We were both there for work. I was in a two-week training course. My guy was teaching a different course to fellow colleagues for a week.

The restaurant offers free wine-tasting. We both sampled the red wine offered that evening. He took one sip and gave me a boyish I-don't-like-it expression on his face, which included a lot of eye blinks and tongue flickers.

On the contrary, I loved the wine. My guy have me his and I finished it. Needless to say, I am more of a wine fan than my guy.

I playfully whine about how sore my backside is after my guy has punished me. We both enjoy that. When we aren't being playful or intimate, we rarely whine about much.

However, my guy does break out and whine about something now and again. It mostly deals with items at his favourite store, Costco. He only whines about not getting a shirt or wool pants in his size to me. I try to console him and often suggest that we visit another Costco location. This suggestion helped fix one of the two problems recently.

Although my guy doesn't like being referred to as boyish (it makes sense, as he is a mature, grown man), he is. It is who he is. There's nothing wrong with that at all.


  1. I really like Olive Garden's unlimited salad and bread...have a tendency to fill up on those and then have to get a 'doggy bag' for my entree. ;) Guess you could always tell your guy that every time he whines, he is going to earn a spanking. haha

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. I swear that you are my guy's twin. He loves the unlimited soup and breadsticks, too.

      Yes, I should threaten him with a spanking whenever he whines. As always, I love your suggestions. =)

  2. Men don't grow up,
    they just get bigger.


    1. That's so true! They definitely grow bigger. =)
