He said, “yes!”

My hubby is sometimes persuaded to do things that are not his first choice and out of his comfort zone. This was one of those times. It seemed like a rare opportunity to me—maybe a one-time opportunity—so I pleaded. It was fun! He was such a good sport!

Bob never wore shorts before we met. His children had often tried to talk him into wearing shorts but he had resisted for a long time. I bought him a few pair while we were still dating and he has never looked back. Recently, son Kevin was remarking on his surprise when he first saw his Dad in shorts. He said, “I knew there was a woman involved and that he must be in love!”

I told Kevin that we have been married too long . . . I no longer have that kind of power. Maybe I was wrong? I don’t think I will push again for awhile though.

Postscript: Yes, I also swam with the dolphins. It was a fun experience.

How fun!! This is something I want to do someday. (I will have to get into a bathing suit first, so it may be a very long time) ; )

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
