Minefield, or, This might be the end of Blog on the Run

So I come upstairs tonight to change and find my wife sitting in front of the computer, on the screen of which is a nude woman.

I don’t think it’d be straying into the Land of Too Much Information to say that this … was different.

The woman in question is her friend A., and the photo in question was a tasteful — and, I should point out, discrete — nude shot of the very pregnant A., with a caption to the effect of how much she’s enjoying the changes her body has gone through during pregnancy.

My wife had added a short comment to the site, the first line of which was something along the lines of “Hubba, hubba!” When I came in, she asked me what comment I’d like to leave.

OK, guys, you know the drill here: No matter how close and loving your relationship, no matter how long you’ve been married, there is nothing, nothing, that you can say here — including saying nothing — that is not going to get you in trouble.

The bullet is coming. It has your name on it. And there’s nothing you can do.

So, I told my wife, leave this comment: “There is nothing I can say here that is not going to get me in trouble, so I’m not going to say anything.”

That’s not funny, she said. If you’re going to say that, you have to say something after that.

Who said anything about trying to be funny? I said.

She gave me one of those looks. You know the kind.

OK, I said, add this: “So I’m just going to go take a cold shower now.”

And I left the room.
