Oh, I understand alright!
When you’re an officer’s wife, you cannot afford to be too sensitive. There are days when your husband gets so busy that he cannot even find the time to call or text. There are days when you want to go out on a date but he can’t because they’re on red alert (no excuses–even on your anniversary!). And there are days when he gets too tired that he falls asleep in the middle of a conversation you’ve waited for for days.
When this happens, just laugh it off…
One evening, while we were getting ready to sleep, I was having a conversation with the hubby about the new projects I landed, the business I recently launched with my cousin, the minis, the kind of furniture I want for the house we’re going to build, and a lot of many other things when Arjay, out of nowhere, said:
“Championship na ba yan?”
I stopped, looked at him (who was staring blankly at the ceiling) and asked:
He looked at me and replied:
“Huh? Anong championship?!”
A few seconds later, he giggled like a little boy and told me that he must have fallen asleep and started dreaming about a blackboard with scores WHILE we were talking.
Can you imagine that?! Nananaghinip ng gising! Yan ang isa sa super powers ng mga nag kadete dati. Maraming variation ang super power na yan. Isa doon ay falling asleep with eyes wide open while in formation. Haha!
Fellow officers’ wives, have you experienced this with your hubby? Grabe noh?! Don’t take it badly, though. We must understand that these guys are usually dead tired by the time they reach home because of their line of work. Just think of it this way: It’s not you, it’s him. :D
