I've been on RP for a few months, mostly in monk mode, reading sidebar, lifting, etc. Things are going well.
My wife is spending a few days with her family out of town with the kids. In shape, my wife is a solid 8.5, but she thinks her sister is supermodel quality and it makes her insecure. Her mom has even told my wife, "You're the smarty one, she's the pretty one." Who says that?!? Yes, her sister is pretty, but it's mostly from makeup ... also an 8.5 with the makeup.
We just had a new baby 2 months ago. My sister in law had a new baby 4 months ago. So, wife's sister has more of the baby weight gone. Wife texts me today:
😢 you think I'm pretty, right? I'm struggling over here... I know the facts and that it shouldn't matter, but it's still so freakin' hard...
Comfort tests don't get as much attention around here. What's the best reply?
I thought about texting back: "Hmmm ... send me a sexy pic so I can evaluate." She'll probably send a goofy pic instead. I'll reply, "Yeah, I'd totally tap that!"
Any better ideas?
Me: Babe ... you're gorgeous! And if you don't believe me, drive on over here without the kids and I'll show you just how pretty I think you are <wink/kiss emoji>
Her: Haha, thank you honey. I birthed 4 beautiful children. That must be worth some beauty points. And now she [her sister] is exercising in front of me ...
Me: I actually showed your picture to a toddler today. He was like ... <pic here>
Her: <laugh/cry emoji> to a toddler?!
Me: Of course ... two hobbits just threw a ring at me ... so I must be like volcanic nowadays, myself
Her: Haha, you are very hot and buff
Me: You know it!
