So my hubby and I went on our staycation. We rode our motorcycles from our home in Olympia to Bremerton, had a bite to eat there, took the ferry to Seattle, rode to the Ballard locks, had a bite to eat there and rode back to the ferry.
Great little trip- Even with the traffic in Seattle I came out of it uninjured and impressed with how great I have gotten on my GXR.

As we were on the ferry on the way back, I spotted a lady that did the same thing I did- She quit dying her hair. And like her, we are mostly silver gray with some black. She looked like she was in her early to mid 40’s- like me. She had an inverted bob cut- which was my last cut- but it has grown some- (to a no style). But as I was looking I decided that our hair is not meant to have an inverted bob. It looked wrong. I mentioned it to my husband and he was agreeable. So I asked “So why did you say you liked it when I had my hair cut like that?”  to which, I got a deer in the headlight type of look- I baffled him. He was being nice.
As I am paying attention to her I start to wonder if I am built like her so I asked my hubby if I did look like I was built like her. And I asked, with my hands in prayer position “please say that I look 30 pounds lighter than her." He chuckled and said well maybe 15 pounds lighter than her. happyYour butt is not as big as hers but your arms are bigger than hers. frown
So I got frustrated. I mean I am sitting there really getting frustrated. I just learned that I actually look 15 pounds bigger than I thought I looked.
Like, I knew I was a rounded- slightly overweight. (And Never mind what my scale says estatic); I was gonna see if I could talk him into believing that I was 30 pounds less than her ohhhh. He’s like; I think you look fine and 15 pounds is a lot of weight!!!  Like I should be proud and just accept the 15 pounds difference. So now- defeated- Now I know (I mean really know) that I need to lose 30 pounds and even though, I know, that I am 30 pounds heavier than I would like my scale to read. NOW, I KNOW, I LOOK IT TOO.  My number is not a secret to anyone tongue out. I look 30 pounds overweight, my scale agrees and that sucks.frown

Okay, fine, whatever- I don't care enough to ruin the trip. It is what it is and I was just being silly.

Anyway, back to the trip...We had decided that since it was getting so hot that we would take off our leather jackets and ride home with just our t-shirt, jeans and helmet on.  And it felt great. The wind was warm. We come up to a stop light and these 2 boys around the age of 9 or 10 walked in front of us in the crosswalk and they cant take their eyes off my chest. I can't see what they see because my helmet prevents me from seeing my chest. So I feel my chest with my hand and my Henley type t-shirt is totally open and my bra is out for the whole world to see ohhhh- So I tell my Hubby that my boobs are showing and he says “cool” and takes off cuz the light just turned green.  

I followed him about a mile or 2 with his blinker on the whole time - I am not sure what he plans on doing. Are we gonna stop so I can put my jacket back on? I think we are going to be turning left and the only time he changes it, he wants to go in to the right lane and even then he kept the blinker on agh all in the meantime I am making sure that my shirt stays put. And, ugh, I am frustrated cuz he never pulled over for me to put on my jacket to save my modesty before we get on to the highway. So I get mad enough to be selfish ;) and pullover by myself to get my jacket on and I go on again. And he noticed this- he pulled over and watches me put on my jacket and takes off again as I catch up to him. Wait! Now my earphones came out and I want to put them back in. Do I pull over again? Oh forget it- Does not matter! Now my head is reeling with how inconsiderate he is.  

Now we are on the highway and the whole time his blinker is on- What does he want to do, what are we going to do next? I just yell into my helmet “turn off your blinker." and just then, a car comes into my lane- in to my spot. They didn't even see me!! So I hit my breaks and I came around to the driver side to let her know that she almost hit me- But I can't- I can only sign it. So she just gave me a "whatever" type of sign language- cuz I am sure I look like I am inviting her to a fight.   UGH! Which is not my intention at all- I just wanted her to know is to look over your shoulder before you switch lanes.  

Back to my hubby- who never even noticed that a car took my spot, (not even caring about my life)-(or my modesty), (or my feelings about my weight). I was so mad at him I could've killed him (if looks could kill).  POP

All this, from the conversation on the ferry, to the highway "brawl" took maybe 15 minutes.
I went from great trip, to attempted murder in 15 minutes.

Now that's what I call Snapped.

      forget all about it, he was probably taken with the moment of riding. Maybe next time forget taking your bike and get behind him , hold on tight around his waist ( which i am sure has grown some too!!) you could even make a comment like ...hmm your spreading a little round the middle there honey!! with you behind him he certainly wont forget your there.

    • estatic  Now really, if you tell a man your boobs are showing do you really think he is going to be thinking about something insignificant like his blinker light?   LOL!

    • Isn’t it amazing how little things can completely derail a good mood? (except the inconsiderate driver who almost ran into you - I wouldn’t call THAT a “little” thing). Marilyn, if it makes you feel any better, men have absolutely NO idea how much women weigh. He noticed that your butt is smaller/better - don’t dismiss that! Men notice boobs, butts and legs. Sounds like he was pleased by the idea of your boobs being “out there for all the world to see,” so it sounds like you got TWO votes of approval from him.
