What Is Love?

Matt's bustin' my chops in comments because I don't write about love and guns and knives enough anymore.

Well, I haven't bought a gun in--literally--years. Too broke, too many commitments. Maybe someday.

But love?

Let me tell ya about love, Grawp.

I just gave my baby a bath and handed him off to my wife. Now she and the kids are in bed in the one air-conditioned room in this house because the heat index here is 93 degrees Fahrenheit at 9:45 P.M.
I, however, am going back to scrape drywall mud, paint the ceiling, and probably do some carpentry in the new bathroom.

You know why I'm doing that instead of sinking into bed with a grateful sigh?

Yeah, that's what I tell my wife when I'm doing something like that: "I'm doing this because you love me."

She: "Substitute 'nag' for 'love,' and you're pretty much correct."
