A brief and bizarre conversation

Husband: Would you ever wear anything like that? (Pointing to the cover of the latest Title Nine catalog)

Me: Um, no.

Husband: Why not?

Me: I don't think I have a good enough body to pull that off.

Husband: What are you talking about? She looks just like you, look. (points to catalog)

Me: I don't think so.

Husband: (walking away) Do *lesbians* even wear bikinis?

Me: Huh?

*As I typed this I was wondering if this conversation really happened or did I just dream that my husband compared me to a Title Nine model. Or did he just call me a *lesbian*?

I guess I'd like to look like a model (ok, depending on the model), whether or not she was a lesbian. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If he thinks you look like a model, you probably do to him.

Aren't men always thinking about lesbians?.....

Always err on the side of a compliment, even if the entire conversation leaves you dazed and confused. Men seem to do that sparadically to keep ya' guessin'.

I don't think men know how to give a compliment without saying something weird to screw with your self-esteem.

It's a bummer he couldn't just leave it at the compliment. But you never know what might happen to your ego if he paid you a compliment like that. He's gotta cover his ass, you know. ;)
