    The Senate Governmental Affairs Committee should look at the affairs that the politicos are having....
    This is sarcasm.

    @ banasy:
    I enjoyed affairs, when I used to have them.
    Not sarcasm.

    I never had an affair.
    I've had several men who wanted to; but I've never met a man who could could ever come close to making me feel the way my hubs does.
    I've had no desire to try and find one, either.

    Good morning, s kel.
    Thank you.
    My hubs thinks so, too...

    This time of year we all get a little congested.
    You're not alone, my friend.

    @ banasy:
    I see we have different definitions of "affair."
    I also realize that I used the word incorrectly.
    I have never had an "affair" since I got married.
    I meant "seeing somebody," before that.
    Something else.
    Not infidelity.

    @ s kel:
    Many have a cough or worse in NYC.
    I know lots of singers, and it really shows when they get it.

    It wouldn't have made a jot of difference to me...I rather figured that out on my own, anyway.
    I've never questioned you fidelity to your wife; I just said what I did to affirm what I feel about my own spouse.
    I adored you before, and I adore you still.
    (Although some may take my last sentence as meaning something more than it does; I have every confidence that you won't.)

    @s kel

    That cough may be a reaction to all this honey thick, lovey dovey, icky sticky talk going on here. LOL
    I'm sorry guys, iwas just joking.
    I'm exactly the same way with my wife of 35 years. It's wonderful, ain't it ?

    And s kel, I went through that cough about a month ago. Started to wonder if I had TB. Hang in there.
