A Husband Kept Track of the Reasons His Wife Said No to Intimacy
This is from last year, but getting really popular, again. There was a live show, in London, which featured famous people, reading real love letters. Not their own. Many were written by historical figures, or in this case, a random guy to his wife.
It isn’t exactly a love letter, though. He kept track of all the reasons she turned him down for intimacy. He asked 365 times that year, but only scored 36 times… less than one out of ten. I guess you might say that, when he couldn’t enjoy her figure, he wrote down the facts.
It was read by Matt Berry . . . you might know him as Laszlo, in the FX show “What We Do In the Shadows.”
Here are some reasons the guy did not succeed:
“It’s too hot” 15 times . . . [followed by] . . . “It’s too cold” three times.
“It’s too late” 16 times . . . [followed by] . . . “It’s too early” nine times.
Pretending to sleep – 35 times.
“It will make the cat jealous” 18 times.
“I’m too drunk” 17 times.
“Is that all you think about?” 83 times.
(Here’s the video. “It’s too hot” is at 0:32 . . . “It’s too late” is 0:42 . . . “Pretending to sleep” is 0:48 . . . “It will make the cat jealous” is 1:10 . . . “I’m too drunk” is 1:19 . . . and “Is that all you think about” is at 1:33.)
