...for a nanosecond, anyway!
Semi-amusing anecdote - Recently returned from a family vacation at the beach. Sort of a mini family reunion with my mother, siblings and most of our children. We rented a not-quite large enough house a few blocks from the sand. Tight quarters meant I would be sharing a bed with my wife for the first time in years. I knew better than to expect any change in behavior, but there is always that tiny voice in the back of my head whispering "maybe...". I can still hear it faintly when our last remaining child at home heads off for a sleepover, and we have the house to ourselves.
True to form, my wife spends much of the vacation time nearby but not really with me. She is careful to maintain a safe buffer between us in bed. Whatever, I'm enjoying being up at dawn and getting down to the beach for some very long walks. One evening during happy hour I'm standing in the great room and I feel a familiar hand scratching the small of my back, followed by a head on my shoulder. What is this?!? Just as that little voice starts clearing its throat to speak, I turn and...it's our daughter showing a bit of affection to ole' Dad.
Gave her a big hug, but almost burst out laughing...at myself.

petrushka: However, I feel that sexual politics, including political moves that impact the relationships between gender (misogynist, misandrist, etc) definitely deserve room in this context.

fred: just calculated that i've spent somewhere near 19,000 days (& nights) as a "rejectee".AND that allows for 2,000+ days (& nights) on business travel apart from her. i've chosen to "stay" .....would never do that again, and can't as you see doing the math

jerri: Yuk on the plucking chicken feathers. If a chicken doesn't get sex and intimacy she just finds a beautiful cock sooner or later. I'd say there's a much higher "philandering" rate than anyone would care to admit. The rooster who is tormented findsa chicken!

petrushka: Well WE are getting closer to summer. Just passed Equinox. I expect the solar panels will start paying for themselves again in the near future. (over the last few months they have merely mitigated the power bills).
