I will be married for 9 years in a month's time. While I have learnt many lessons in this short married life of mine, one of the most surprising one has been learning about the habits of my other half. (I will not call him my better half, because that's just lame! haha) Below I am uncovering all the things my husband
borrows steal from me, from Skinny Cow to beauty products to the covers in bed!
- He steals my sunscreen, face wash, face oil, face serum, (the list goes on). Okay so in his defense, I did introduce him to all these products. While I am trying to slow down my aging process, I thought it is only fair that I help him do the same. But more often than not, he prefers my products better than what I have bought for him and next thing I know, mine are missing.
- He steals my sunglasses. I believe in classic shapes in sunglasses. As I grow older I am getting lazier about switching them out with every outfit, so I just want one in my bag which would go with everything. A lot of mine are unisex. Hence, the side effect of them being used by both of us. Although on the positive side, I don't feel guilty about buying new ones any more, because the rate of return is double.
- He steals my food when we go out. Now I am vegetarian (everyone knows that!) and he is a carnivore. So when we go out, I cannot try his food but he sure can try everything I order. That's besides the point that I can never finish my complete meal. So while it is really a bonus but it does bother me that I am always on the losing end.
- He steals my snacks at home. I shop with a plan and I like to have everything portioned. He has his snacks and I have mine. I always ask him if he wishes to add something to the grocery list so that there are no discrepancies later. I rarely ever try new snacks, as I work (and eat) like a robot, same thing day-in-day-out. But every now and then I would spot something new and would want to try and next thing I know my husband is already munching on that snack before I could get around trying it.
Case in point Skinny Cow Chocolatey Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches. He strictly told me he was over all-things-sweet and so I didn't serve him any but then he couldn't resist trying "just one bite" out of my sandwich. So you know the indulgences are not just for the women in the household.
Y'know I have more things to add to this list, but I suppose this is enough to prove my point. Find your local store listings for Skinny Cow and bond over your shared love of indulgent products – just make sure there’s enough for you both. Enjoy the good life together!
