What’s your hot commodity?


I have slept on the same side of the bed forever. When I got married I explained that to my husband. Well, it just so happens that my side of the bed is the closest and best view of the television.

Over the past seven years that we have lived in this house, I find that my husband takes a shower and then lies on my side of the bed in his wet robe – YUK! I have discussed and yelled at him about “getting his ass to his side of the bed.” That’s my space. I already have to share everything else with either him or my kids! Really, is it too much to ask for just this one sliver of space that I can call my own? C’mon now!

So, the other night he says to me, “if I lose 25 pounds will you give me your side of the bed?” Hmmm…..I didn’t realize that my side of the bed, my real estate if you will, was such a hot commodity.

On one hand, I do hate the fact that he has gained so much weight since we got married… but on the other hand, that side of the bed has been with me for a long time and is my last “hold out” of independence. What would you do? Do I make the trade?

    Barb and I read your response together. You are so funny and so right. She is going to keep her side of the bed and doesn’t care if he’s fat or not!

    no!!!…keep your side..your space…he may lose the weight but if he is anything like my husband..he will slowly and surreptitiously gain the weight back…hoping you won’t notice…then you will have him +25 again and have relinquished your side..i think it might be a lose- lose situation….NO DEAL!
