This is cutting edge improvisational blogging. We call it –
“Whose Blog is it Anyway ?” 2 – The Unanswerables
We have written this for FUN, not serious, to amuse ourselves and our readers, and help promote our blogs. Please read with that in mind.
Commenters – Please DO NOT post outbound links whilst the event is going on AND please DO NOT post comments if you are a moron.
Whose Blog is it Anyway? 2 – The Unanswerables
Why “The Unanswerables” ? Because the titles assigned to my guest improvisers don’t have an exact scientific answer or they are just zany and off the wall.
Do not expect fact here. Do not expect the truth here. This is creative writing for FUN, HUMOUR and for those with a SENSE OF HUMOUR. It’s cutting edge IMPROVISED blogging, not science weekly or the historian’s gazette.
The guest improvisers were assigned titles by me, and are therefore NOT necessarily experts or even actually FOR the topic they are writing about. They all did however “YES, AND” the challenge which is the spirit of improvisation and what we’re doing here.
We’re not interested in your critical appraisal, it simply isn’t required. It is in fact IRRELEVANT to the context of improvised, for fun creative writing. Stop taking yourselves so seriously.
So without further ado …
Her Ladyship – The Eminent Brilliant Doctor And Author Extraordinaire
Dr Carol Cooper, or I hope I’m allowed to call her Carol first came to my attention when I was writing about Trolls. I don’t know how she found me, but I was a little in awe as she’s more than a little well known. So I extra-minded my P’s and Q’s.
Since then she’s been a regular commenter and follower of my blog, and I’ve learned that she’s actually lovely, very humble and down to earth woman. In fact I’d go as far as to say that she exhibits all the traits of a very charismatic woman.
Carol’s risen to the challenge beautifully.
You can find Dr Carol Cooper at PILLS & PILLOW-TALK blog.
Please give a warm welcome to Dr Carol Cooper.
Why does my husband? – look at other women, blame me for everything, fart so much, ignore me, lie to me, treat me so bad, not love me, cheat and wear women’s panties
I’m Carol Cooper, a writer and doctor living in London. I like bright things and bright people. That’s why my novel has a pair of red suede shoes right in the middle of the cover, and of course why I follow Don Charisma’s blog.
I accepted DC’s challenge on WBIIA 2 because the lure of his Unanswerables was too great to resist. My husband says I always have an answer to everything. Would I have answers to this?
The challenge Don sent turned out to be about my husband. Why, asks DC, does my husband look at other women, blame me for everything, fart so much, ignore me, lie to me, treat me so bad, not love me, cheat, and wear women’s panties?
The other bit of the challenge, not specified in Don’s instructions, was staying out of the divorce courts.
Let me say right off my Other Half does not do all these things, to my knowledge. But then we’ve only been married six months today. Although I now begin to understand why he bought me large amounts of underwear for Christmas, and in such generous sizes.
Like any red-blooded male, OH does of course look at other women. He only wants to be reminded how gorgeous I look by comparison. Even during his relationship with Bonnie, the love of his life, he would occasionally steal glances at other bikes, just to reassure himself of the unparalleled beauty and charm of the Triumph Bonneville.
The other things he does? I reckon he does them because he can. You need to know that I’ve raised three sons. To get me riled, my husband would have to do something really annoying, like throw his dinner out the cat-flap, fill his underpants with Lego bricks, or get his head stuck in a bucket. Maybe he’d even have to push his brother in the river.
My husband can get away with farting. It only makes me giggle. If he lies, I smile indulgently. I don’t mind if he cheats at cards. It’s probably only to help me win. Anyway, I’ll likely just grin and pinch him on the buttock.
If he repeats himself, as he does quite often, I may cup my ear and shout “Pardon? Can you say that again? I’m only 93.” If my husband ignores me, I just put the radio on full blast to deafen him with 60s sounds. His worst habit around the house? He leaves the lights on. I just roll my eyes, which he can easily see since all the lights are on.
Frankly none of my responses are nearly enough to make my husband want to stop. So the bottom line is that he does all these things because he can get away with it.
But it’s not a one-way street. In this post-feminist world, you expect me to be the perfect simpering wife? I burp, I scratch, and I sing out of tune. I leave so many clothes on the back of the chair that it tips over, and furthermore I’m an ogre in the mornings. There is, I’m told, a growing list of maddening traits and exasperating habits, all of which defy logic. And apparently they were not present six months ago.
Why do I do these things? Because I’m me, just as surely as my husband is himself. As to why that should be, well, it’s completely unanswerable.
I’m Carol and I blog on http://pillsandpillowtalk.com. Thanks to Don Charisma for letting me improvise, and to you for reading.
