Why is it he always comes schmoozing up to me with that I-am-eternally-and-passionately-devoted-to-you look just when I have a stack of work to do? And insists I go open the door because he can't be bothered to? And why is it that he manages to make himself scarce whenever he's left a horrible mess in the bathroom? And never does anything to help with the housework? Just because he owns the house, and just about everything in it. OK, I know, he's very caring. He goes all solicitous whenever I'm ill, and never budges from my side. But how often does that happen?
And he does always look immaculate and beautifully groomed. So handsome. always elegant, and moves about so quietly and gracefully. You could never feel ashamed in his presence. Oh, and doesn't he just know it? And don't think I don't know that he quite shamelessly throws himself at any little bit of hottie that happens his way.
You should have seen him doing the total charm act and schmoozing Eve Garrard when she came to stay.
