Good morning my fellow Rotarians and welcome to the Bottom of the News! Thought I would do something a bit different this week and share with you an encounter between a husband and wife, as recorded in their diary entrys, that could happen anywhere in the world. Let's begin with the...
Wife’s Diary Entry:
Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late and maybe even put too much on the credit care, but he made no comment. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't talk.
I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving.
I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep; I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.
Husband's Diary Entry:
And there you have it. Guys if you can relate, I'd suggest that you not openly admit that right now! And that my friends is our bottom of the news for this Friday, July 29th, 2011.
