Whipped into shape!Christine:  Hi husband! How was your day? Kisses on cheek.

Husband: Hi Christine. My day was good! I worked hard and goofed off a little with my co-workers. All projects I am working on are on time and on budget. I can’t complain! How was your day my little pumpkin-head?

Christine: Oh, um, my day was okay. You know…the usual.

Husband: gives me a sideways glance

Christine: So what’s the dealie-oh tonight? Do you have any plans?

Husband: I was going to play online games. (Husband plays Lord of the Rings Online) There’s a scheduled raid tonight at 7 p.m.

Christine: Ah. Oh, okay. Um, do you want to take a walk?

Husband: Nope.

Christine: Wanna play basketball outside? Bump a volleyball around?

Husband: Nope. I’ll probably nap and then do my raid. But thanks my little pumpkinhead.

Christine: Ugh. Okay. I’m not going to cook for you tonight, you know.

Husband: That’s fine. I’ve got leftover pizza I’ll eat.  Christine makes a face. Blerg. What are you going to do while I’m off raiding on Middle Earth?

Christine: I don’t know. Watch tv. Sit on my ass. Be lazy.

Husband: Oh, I don’t think so. I think that you want to go to the gym.

Christine: What? Gym? I don’t think so. I’m tired. Fakes a yawn and stretch.

Husband: Nope, I think you want to go to the gym. You have a busy week ahead of you. It’s going to be hard for you to fit the gym into your schedule. You’re free tonight, so you should go to the gym.

Christine: feeling cornered by Husband’s ability to use Good Logic on her. It’s his jedi mind-trick ability. Dammit! Uhhhhhh but I don’t WANT TO.

Husband: Go. To the gym.  Opens closet door and takes out gym shoes for me. You’ll feel better afterwards.

Christine: dammit. More jedi mind tricks. But but I don’t know! I’m so TIRED. It was such a LONG day at work.

Husband: GO. If you go, I’ll give you a little corner of some Mister Goodbar when you get back.

Christine: Damn, he’s good. He even knows how to tempt me with chocolate. Damn that smart husband! FINE I’LL GO BUT I WON’T LIKE IT.

(Christine goes to the gym and has a great workout)

Husband: How was the gym?

Christine: Great! Now give me my chocolate, you Luke Skywalker wannabe mind-trickster. You better not hold out on me because I’ll thump you over the head with my arms-o-steel like Fezzig from Princess Bride and jog your memory.

Husband: Sure you get chocolate! Kisses me on the head. Great job! I’m so proud of you for going and doing so well at running! Gives me a teeny tiny little morsel of chocolate…the perfect amount.

Moral to the story: Sometimes having a supportive spouse is the best motivation and best present a girl could ever have.
