Workouts and hot dogs

Our conversations have interesting backdrops at times. Yesterday's was a good example.

After work, I was hungry and grabbed a quick bite to eat at a restaurant fairly close to work. I stayed there for nearly an hour before I went back into my car and was about to drive away.

My guy texted me on Skype. He is in Bangkok, so we have a twelve-hour difference. It was 07:00 in the morning his time.
"Waking up?" I asked him.
"Yep," he replied. "Home yet?"
"Nope, I just finished eating."
My guy wanted to hear my voice and was off to the gym. Normally, I am the one with the earbuds and phone talking to him. It was a role reversal on his part. As for me, I was in my car, with my phone connected to my car's bluetooth speakerphone.

I thought that I would be able to hear my guy huff and puff while working out. Well, we were talking and the Internet connection got lost when he was in the elevator. It was not surprising. He told me that he doesn't jog on the treadmill, so he would be able to talk to me.

It was a great conversation. The 7-Eleven by his hotel sells shrimp dumplings. I had to ask him whether it had Slurpees. Of course, I had to touch on the fact that 7-Eleven also sells hot dogs.
"That's just the perfect, unhealthy meal -- a hot dog and a Slurpee," he said to me in a disappointed tone.
"If it makes you feel better, I ate a hot dog at the movies on the weekend," I stated proudly.
"Um, that doesn't make me feel good," he replied.
"And, at Target, I found this little plastic basket that had mini hot dog designs on it. It would be amazing if I got this basket and put a real hot dog in it," I said with a huge grin on my face.
"Do you want me to break up with you if you do this?" he challenged me.
"I just want my bottom smacked," I said, which was true.
"You'll get that no matter what," he replied.
So, that made me feel all warm and fuzzy. It was my virtual hug from him. And, no, he wouldn't break up with me over my liking to enjoy an occasional hot dog. I just like teasing him about it.


  1. LOL CB...very cute post. BTW...does your guy eat hamburgers or sausages? If so, he really can't say anything about hot dogs! *snicker*

    Hope you have a spankingly good reunion. ;)

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. My guy does eat hamburgers. When he does, he tends to go with an angus burger because the meat is leaner. Just my saying those two words seems to gross him out these days, which is kind of fun! =)

  2. I remember your discussions over hot dogs before. It's fun to tease if you'll get the desired reward Girl With the Naughty Name. It is more fun that breaking up jokes...

    Keep on making each other feel wanted,

    1. It's nice to hear from you, Han. Yes, my teasing him did get the desired outcome that I wanted. My sore backside can attest to that. =)
