I Would Do Anything For Love

Have you heard that song by Meatloaf called "I Would Do Anything For Love....But I Won't Do That"? (My sincere apologies that I have now gotten this song stuck in your head for the next five weeks.)

I thought of this song a few days ago when my wife asked me to do THAT. Would you like to know what THAT is which Meatloaf is referring to in his song "I Would Do Anything For Love....But I Won't Do THAT?"

THAT is your wife's makeup.

And apparently I'm more of a man than Meatloaf because I did do THAT.

See, my wife fell exactly two weeks ago and broke both of her elbows. She suddenly became 100% helpless. She couldn't eat. She couldn't hold anything. She couldn't even scratch her nose. After a week of looking like death warmed over (her words, not mine!) she asked if I would please put a little bit of makeup on her.

It's hard to resist your completely helpless spouse who has been laying on the bed crying in pain for a week and you want to do anything you can to help make matters better. So I did THAT. With a hefty supply of guidance and direction I put on a little bit of makeup.

It's certainly no work of art, but good enough for a first effort. I will now show you a picture of my labors.

I would do anything for love, and I DID DO THAT.
