Page 2B - Wednesday, February 19,1986 - The Seguin Gazette-Enterprise rage XD - weanesaay, reuruary 10, iow- mo^ouum wa£.ono-».in^ipiio^ _ -^ Insensitivity of the subtle kind wounds wife Ail my husband would have to do is to look at me and say, "My God, Erma! With your girth you should be an 85-foot redwood." It would hurt. I'd cry a little. Go to my room. Maybe slam a door or two. Get a divorce. But at least it would motivate me to lose a few pounds. But does he do that? No, he Just shrugs and lays one of his cute linen on me like, "Eat whatever you want. You're an adult." Did you catch the sarcasm? What I want to eat is Hershey, Pa., and Cocoa Beach, Fla. And he knows it! I know where he's coming from. He figures if he can keep me in elastic waistbands, I'll have deep-seated feelings of gratitude that he stays married to me. So every chance he gets, he throws in a comment to break down my self-esteem and my discipline. Lucky for me when I diet I don't have the usual irritability and paranoia that goes with it. I can handle this insensitivity. Like the other day at lunch, I was nibbling on whole-wheat pita bread stuffed with tomatoes and bean sprouts when my husband said, "Can I get you something while I'm up?" The oldest trick in the world. And you think you know what you've married. He wasn't being polite. He was waiting for me to say, "How about two folding chairs in front of the refrigerator?" I know, you can't dissect every line they use, but when a husband looks at his wife who is on a diet and says, "Need anything while I'm out?", we're talking insensitive. I could tell you stories about my husband's callousness while I'm dieting that would curl your hair. Once he tasted a dessert I had made in the blender that brought together skim milk, goat cheese and liver (maraschino cherry optional). He touched his tongue to it and said, "This doesn't taste too bad." Is that supposed to make me feel good? If my husband really loved me he would never have waited until I got into bed the other night and then asked, "Did you lock the back door?" I know it sounds innocent enough, but he knew I'd get out of bed, walk the length of the house and not have the strength to get back without eating two cold chicken wings in the refrigerator. There was no cloubl in my mind he had been waiting all day to lay that line on me. As I returned to bed he said, "How long have you been eating carrot sticks and drinking blue milk this time?" "Twenty-four hours," I snapped. "Why are you dieting? You look all right to me." See what. I mean? He wouldn't say that unless he wits seeing someone else. l»8«, Mis AiiurlpsTlmrsSyndicate OUR LOSS IS YOUR GAIN SCRATCH ™DENT SALE BIRTHS Eighteen babies were born at Guadalupe Valley Hospital between Feb.3andFeb.9.
