Upon seeing the daily prompt, ‘Partner’, I would imagine that I was not alone in thinking that this would be an ideal opportunity to write a piece on my relationship with my wife. It would be insightful and honest and lay bare the ups and downs of a modern relationship.
I imagined that I would share wisdom and experience in a light hearted yet uplifting way and it would prove enlightening and encouraging for others as they would see their own relationship in ours. I would talk about love and compromise and friendship and laughter and…
Okay…I’ll stop there. I can’t type that with a straight face.
I was mostly going to write about the impact of going to the toilet in front of one’s partner. I had also considered something humorous on how to be certain that the kids are asleep and not just pretending and instead hatching a plan to burst into the bedroom with a “Surprise!!!” at the most inopportune moment.
Both of those will not now see the light of day though as I mentioned the general ‘Partner’ subject to my wife and her reaction was “as long as you don’t write about me I don’t care what you write.” There was no malice in it though she did, quite coincidentally, have a rather large knife in her hand at the time so I took her advice seriously.
Therefore, this is mostly a piece about what you will not be reading, so I posted it with a picture of a cat just because.
