Here's (to) Johnny!!

WARNING: Another sappy post ahead!!

On Wednesday I talked about the cute points about my son. Today?

In addition to it being Johnny Cash’s birthday, let me tell ya something…

Yesterday the uber-adorable Schmoop called in sick. The why is not important, but I understand the why.

Schmoop has been my BFF/OSP for over nine years now. Will we ever get married? I doubt it. Will we ever have kids together? Definitely not…and to attach an exclamation point, we both hope not!!

However…

She has been my best friend and closest companion for going on ten years, but lately…

We haven’t been in sync. She has her schedule, and I have mine. The schedules just don’t mesh. We have taken each other for granted.

I take out the garbage and cook; she keeps the house clean, and in between, we say “hi” and pet Corky at the same time for a couple of minutes.

The Bagwine digs had become a Stepford suburb and the denizens consisted of a couple of automatons mechanically bouncing into each other once in awhile to say “hi”.

Yesterday that changed…Schmoop called in sick.

Schmoop started to feel better as the day went on. In fact, she had a couple of beers…And then? We had sex!! Oh Baby!!

Now let me tell ya, the sex was, as it always is, fantastic, however…

Outside of those three sixty minutes of pure, naked bliss, the best part was that we rediscovered one and other.

We listened to music on You Tube, I made BBQ chicken and salad for her…We sat on the couch and made fun of people.

We had a blast doing nothing…together.

I have often told her that she is the Anne Meara to my Jerry Stiller, but because it’s his birthday…

I will tell Schmoop that she is the June Carter to my Johnny Cash…

Wear some black today for Johnny, I sure as hell am. And on top of that, after I take Schmoop to work and Ryno to school, I’m gonna toss back some Wild Irish Rose and listen to the Man in Black.

Nothing goes better together than Cash and Bagwine…

Cheers!!

Awww Jerry and Ann and Johnny and June... that is so cute! My husband would probably say we are Frank and Marie Barone. LOL. Glad you two had a great day together :-)

Matt-Man said...

Lady: Ha...When you put it that way, I want to puke, but yeah...it was a damn fine day. Cheers D!!

Jay said...

I was going to give you crap for being sappy again. BUT, since it's about Schmoop I'll let it go. ;-)

Desert Rat said...

That was lovely. Sometimes you really need that time to get back in sync. I glad you had the opportunity to do that.

I think Steve and I are kinda like "Lewis and Clark."

How W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L that you all had great time together. By the way Matt, if Schmoop is near by, tell her I hope she feels better real soon. And get the flowers!

P. S. Lady -- I love Frank and Marie. They are too funny for words.

When you both work so much, you should always have a ‘date night’ once a week. I don’t care if it’s dinner and a movie, or naked twister, or just slamming a few beers then slamming each other.

The other side of the coin is when you both work at home, like I have now. That’s when you really need an alone night. Or day. Or week. Or ….. I’m just kidding, I love spending every waking moment wi…….aghhhh!

You old romantic you!..;-)

3 minutes eh? Now that's staying power!

I make 3 minutes easy...including an afterwards cigarette, a beer and a pizza....;-)

Michele said...

Oh, so she took a mental health day. Well, that's totally different.

Michele said...

Ah...yeah..sorry about the horny bastard comment then.

Matt-Man said...

Jay: You're cool like that but seriously...I do have to snap out of this new found gayness. I think Gardenhire tainted me. Cheers Jay!!

Rat: It was swell, but Lewis and Clark? I always pictured you and Steve as more of a Siegfried and Roy duo. Cheers Rat!!

Bobby: I'll pass that along because with the hangover she has, she feels worse today than she did yesterday. Cheers Michelle!!

Matt-Man said...

Scott: Ha. It's not that we work a ton of hours, but the hours we work don't coincide well. Now listen Mister, go kiss your wife. Cheers Scott!!

Four: I dig your affection for complete and utter instant gratification. You're a beast. Cheers FD!!

Michele: Yeah she took a mental health day and oddly enough, spent it with me. How ironic.

And please, there's no need to apologize; I am a horny bastard. Cheers Michele!!

Doc said...

Happy Johnny Day... Listen to some Cash!
He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down

Matt-Man said...

Doc: Good man, Doc. I dig me some Cocaine Blues. Taken Ryno to school shortly, he's Cash man just like me so we'll be cranking some up. Cheers Doc!!

Dianne said...

Johnny is the man!

I usually wear some black, I'll wear more today

I love you and Schmoop - you're a modern romantic couple

Evil Twin's Wife said...

If the Evil Twin and I have an afternoon w/o kids, sex is always on the menu. ;-) Good for you!

If you get a chance, check out the song "Waste" by Phish. When you hear it, you'll understand why I recommend it. :-)

My prayers go out to JC and his lovely bride June. They were 2 of a kind and I love them both.

Phfrankie Bondo said...

...in those three minutes of bliss you could have listened to this song,and even had time for afterglow!...

Matt-Man said...

Dianne: Damn right. As a couple we rank right up there with Abbot and Costello. Cheers Sexy!!

Evil: Well good for you guys, and yeah, I've always dug Johnny and June.

I'll be sure to check out that song. Thanks for the tip. Cheers ETW!!

Matt-Man said...

Phfrankie: And who said I didn't? Cheers P-Man!!

Joker_SATX said...

Sometimes,just in the day to day, one starts to lose oneself and it feels like relationships are taken for granted.

This Joker is happy to see that the two of you have reconnected. This is always a good thing.....

Matt-Man said...

Joker: Why thank ya. I think I misspoke...

It's not really so much that we are taking each other for granted, it's that we just didn't really see each other for any length of time. But and which of course leads to that.

Have a wunnerful weekend Joker. Cheers!!

Schmoop said...

Thanks for yesterday baby. I had a great time, and it was just what I needed. I just wish I wasn't dying now!!

Matt-Man said...

Schmoop: Thank Me? Au Contraire...Your ass in the air was a site to behold...Which I did. Sorry about the teeth marks on you left ass cheek. I loved it baby. Cheers Schmoop!!

Mike said...

Maybe she should get sick more often.

Matt-Man said...

Mike: Hmmmm. I think you are correct sir. Maybe she should. Have a wunnerful weekend Mike. Cheers!!

The Covert Lover said...

Absolutely LOVE Johnny and June.
And apparently you love that pic of Schmoop - how many times have you posted it now? Not that I'm complaining - that is one damn hot picture! :)

Matt-Man said...

Covert: She won't let me take new pics of her half naked so I gotta go with the one or two that display her perfect 42 Cs. Mmmmm. I do love them so. Cheers Lover!!
