On a quiet Saturday night everybody was already asleep but us. My husband was watching his favorite action movie on HBO whilst I, as usual, glued myself on my kindle. None of us was talking but it felt comfortable. You know how common conception tells (which I suspect was made by only romantic people, — I mean romantic people always think as small thing as a water drop as romantic) that when you can spend time together in a room comfortably being busy on own thing you are pretty much in love. So when my husband rubbed my hand gently, looked me in the eye and talked in the sweetest voice he could ever do I thought romance was up in the air.
Okay he actually asked me to make a cup coffee for him, but for a far of romantic person like my husband the gesture he displayed was actually close enough. Normally he would only pat my back and said “make me a cup of coffee will you?”. This time to add more romance, I winked at him and said in the same tone as his “where is the password honey?”.
“Please?” he replied, still smiling.
“No” I lazily shook my head, “password please?” I repeated my request. In my head, since the air has been already romantic, I was thinking to get a kiss on my cheek. That would be my perfect password, to get me up making him a cup of coffee.
He looked puzzled for a moment.
I offered my left cheek in front of his face while repeating the same password request. I would assume that most of people, especially men, would have understood this move. A cheek protruding in front of you, inviting, what else you should do, right? WRONG!
Not all men. Well at least not my husband. He was this typical people who would straightly turn his head to see the other man we talked about despite being told not to.
“Where’s the password?” I repeated, pouting.
He grinned, came closer and then whispered in my ear, “zero, three, one, one”.
And the romance popped!
If any one of you happens to know any man who would whisper his password phone unlock code instead of giving a kiss on his wife’s cheek, despite being lead to do it please let me know. We may arrange a play date.
