It's a long story how we got there but I was happy, in a nerdy way, because I actually like country music.
Yep, I can sing along with most of what Kenny sings.
One of the songs he came out with in the 90's is a ballad called, Buy Me a Rose.
It's basically a song letting men know that if they really want to please their wives they should stop buying them stuff and just pay a little more attention to them.
Let me share with you a few of the lyrics:
'He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
A three car garage, her own credit cards
he pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss goodnight
if he could only read her mind she'd say:
Buy me a rose, call me from work,
open a door for me, what would it hurt?
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes
these are the little things I need the most in my life.'
It's a very sweet and romantic ballad.
And as Kenny sang this song, I turned in the dark to my husband to maybe try and hold his hand or share a kiss.
But, I quickly realized that there would be no romantic moment between my husband and myself right then, because he was busy
– texting work.
