Wife has Sussed me out

Recommended Posts

Stupidly left "Norwegian Wood" book lying around and my wife read out page 116 to me where it describes from a woman's point of view the type of man she is with by the way in which he stores wood.

For instance  "Upright and solid pile = Upright and solid man"

Then she found" Everything in a pile on the ground =  Ignorance, decadence, laziness, drunkenness,  possibly all of these.

But I pointed out another line "A Lot of wood    =  A man of foresight, loyal"

But she said "It is not much good having a lot of wood in a pile on the ground"

I was lost for words

Assuming that Love is already “as read”; you can’t beat loyalty, in my book...

...whatever shape it is stored in.

She has indeed been very loyal in spite of my ignorance, decadence, laziness and drunkenness!

 

There is a much bigger heap around the corner!

Great to see the Arbortrolley in good use Billhookemoji106.pngemoji269.png

I think that is referring to the "Lazy" part of my character!  Difficult to steer in drunkenness though, which is pretty ignorant!

That is one excellent book,   the last line in the wood pile section for ladies selecting a husband was from memory    No Log Pile = No Husband !!.
