This weekend, the wife & I spent some time with our good friends Otha & Rochelle Yarborough. We, along with a houseful of others, were helping Otha & Rochelle celebrate their 13th Anniversary. There was good food and good laughs the entire evening â€¦â€¦ and I might add (in the words of Rochelle) great beverages. Perhaps the highlight of the evening was the Karioca; however, I don't have permission to show the video. The exact words were, "If you show it, I will kill you then sue your remains." Truth be told, even the performers knew the singing was beyond BAD. The American Idol â€śpants on the groundâ€ť singer was a Grammy Award performer compared to these singers. Dogs blocks away were howling, birds were falling from the sky, neighborhood children were afraid to come outside, concrete and asphalt was splitting and the street lights would either flicker and go out or just burst. It was horribleâ€¦..just horrible. The most revealing thing of the evening was the written advice given as to how to stay married for 13 years. All of which I purloined because I felt it would make a compelling blog for others to read. With that said, here's the advice and how men interpret it in parenthesis:
a.Â Ongoing team work (hot steamy sex).
b.Â Compliment each other (I love it when you watch Desperate Housewives cuz youÂ learn new things).
c.Â Donâ€™t take each other for granted (So you bought 5 pairs of shoes so you could look good for ME?).
d.Â Thank him when he does the dishes (THANK GOODNESS you finally washed something OTHER than your car).
e.Â Do whatever it was you did for the 1st 13 years (hmmm, what did I do?).
f.Â Be a little freakyâ€¦â€¦and a little more freaky (makes sense to me, thatâ€™s a good one).
g.Â Compromise (do what SHE wants when she wants).
h.Â Never let your marriage get old (I'm just lookin'....ain't nothing wrong with lookin').
i.Â Clip his toenails (Ok but what I gotta do for you?).
j. Â Laugh at each other (only when I'm the subject matter).
k. Â Keep plenty of six packs in the refrigerator (Self explanatory).
l.Â Listen but donâ€™t listen (uh huh, is that right?, wow!).
m. Donâ€™t lie (naw, you don't look fat in that).
n.Â Put the seat up and leave the seat down (what?).
o.Â "No advice here, I can't make it two months and Iâ€™ve been married three times" (an honest brother).
Glad to get a look at my cousin...lol. My daughter went to school with Otha's son and they call each other cousins because we are both from Yarboroughs who originated from Franklin Co., NC. :)
Happy Anniversay, Cousin!
