On Monday, my friend, Cindy Beall, wrote a great post on “Sweet Talk”. It was a mighty nice reminder to say sweet things about my husband when his name comes up around others – and certainly around him. Probably nothing emasculates him more than when I take cheap shots . And, sometimes we do it as a joke at their expense. You know what I’m talkin’ about.
However, repeating “Taklisms” are allowed and even embraced. I’ll fill you in on Taklisms on another day. And, if I forget, remind me.
I’ve been around girls who rip their husbands up and down and to and fro. They make me feel like either I’m married to a saint or their husband is Darth’s cousin twice-removed. I’m sure neither is true. But boy do our words pierce hearts.
I don’t get this right all of the time. I sometimes slip.
But, I try to represent. (That’s Puff Daddy or P Diddy or Mac Daddy or whatever talk for bringing the best out, giving respect to, or standing up for.)
Do you represent?
