Disclaimer: This is not about my husband ;)
It turns out it is true. Your middle-aged husband suddenly starts working out after a decade or two of vegging out on the coach. Your husband, father of your children, suddenly gets a new, fresh, dare I say young, haircut with new clothes (underwear included) to match. Your middle-aged husband suddenly has a lot of work in the evenings – much more than before – and is needed urgently on the weekend all over the country sometimes in cities where you didn’t even know that he had clients. Your middle-aged husband is walking around with a huge smile plastered on his face – something you haven’t seen for years.
How do I know that it is true? Because the middle-aged husband(not MY husband) told me so. He spilled the beans to me after I noticed all of the above. The most noticeable of the changes was the smile.
What a strange English lesson this conversation has made – simply TMI – too much information.

The things they tell their English teacher!

Oh my... ;) And now your husband needs to keep his smiling on a stedy level for decades. Otherwise, the stories developing in your head will drive you crazier than crazy. :D

Lois - I know! I have been told so many things that I shouldn't have been told. It's as if they think that saying it in English is not really saying it. It's a pity that I can't put the really juicy stuff on here, oh, and there's something called a non-disclosure form that I think I signed ;)

Fiona - Exactly! That's why all clothes and undergarment purchases are left to me - to keep suspicion under control. Not to worry. The "L" word strongly binds us together...Laziness, that is ;)
