JOHN SAID HE TELLS PEOPLE "I don't know my wife's age.
C'MON, I KNOW HIS AGE, AND HIS HEIGHT, WEIGHT, SHOE SIZE, PAN'T SIZE, HAT SIZE, --ALSO WHAT SIZE UNDERWEAR TO PURCHASE. ALSO, WHAT SIZE SPORTS JACKET FITS HIM.
Wrist size? Of course I know what wrist-watch he'd like, though he wears a digital timex. He loves rings. especially our tall (below the knuckle) 18 karat solid gold wedding rings that we rarely wear because they are ucomfortable. He likes cufflinks, including the 3/4 inch fancy pair that has a floral pattern.
I used to shop for his sweaters at the 17th street Barney' before it closed--greens, browns, never purple--purple clashes with his skin tone. Now there's two Brooks Brothers within walking distance but the dresser where we keep his sweaters is jammed and has to be left open for at least 4 days till the moth ball smell fades into tolerable.
Currently he buys exercise outfits for me in Greewich Village, last Xmas--an extra warm, extra large, flannel Salmon-colored exercise outfit that makes me feel like a big something or other who escaped from a tank. I gave it to his oldest, wisest sister, Lee Gunter who brags--"the moment my brother saw this outfit, he bought it for ME! Lee Gunter wore it with the 6 turquoise necklaces brother John gave her for her 50th birthday last year.
HE BUYS THINGS FOR ME LIKE THAT, SO LEE GUINTER CAN WEAR THEM. I WONDER IF I CAN BORROW THE NECKLACES? THEY'D LOOK GREAT ON ME IN ONE OF MY JOGGING SUITS. I WEAR DIFFERENT STYLE SUIT EVERY DAY. COULD THAT BE WHY MY HUSBAND DOESN'T KNOW MY AGE? YES! Every time I look different, we have to figure out who I really am again. It's quite titilating for someone who's been married for 8, going on 9 years.
TITILATING? HEY, ITS FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!
