When I married Ben, I promised I would "honor and obey" him. I'm pretty laid-back, but extremely stubborn, so I knew the day would come when this part of my vow would be difficult for me.
I have unashamedly professed my love for The Bachelor. Each Monday, I sit captivated by Jake and the drama with each girl trying to convince him that she is the best for him.
My co-worker, who also loves the show as much as I do, told me about www.realitysteve.com. This is where you can get all the insider-information about the show that you don't get by merely watching the show.
My response to her: a satisfactory mischievous smile. My thought: This is PERFECT!
Casually, I mentioned this fantastic website to Ben. He accused me of cheating. He said, "That is exactly like trying to beat a video game by getting the cheat sheet off the Internet!"
I don't play video games, so I didn't see the correlation.
But because of loving Ben, I decided to honor and obey his wish.
It hasn't been easy. I harpoon my co-worker for additional information. I follow thebachelorshow.com's twitter. And, last night, I almost ran over a kid in Wal-Mart reading US Weekly's cover story of Jake and Vienna. But, I haven't touched www.realitysteve.com.
I've been good. I've obeyed Ben's wishes. But after this season ends, I might need to see a therapist.
