Do you get *flutters* when you watch your spouse/lover play sports/work??

  1. My hubby has been dying to learn how to play golf. I played daily before I met him, but have played very little in the past 8 yrs (he stole my game ). Finally, today, we dumped the kiddo's with the inlaws and headed off to the driving range. I was surprised at how quick MY game came back to me (yes, bragging).

    I worked with hubby for a while, showing him proper swing, etc. I took a seat so I could watch his swing and criticize him (I loved this Bless his heart, he has about as much athelitic ability as a flag pole. I feared he was going to crack into pieces while swinging that club. He's so...ummm, stiff. Don't get me wrong, he has a nice physique...but he just ain't atheletic. So, to answer my question. No, it wasn't an enticing moment...

    until, that is, the OTHER guy came up and started hitting some balls..<grins> behind hubby. Now, THAT guy...well, he was real...ummmm..atheletic. He had a stroke that woke up my hormones. Was a wonderful evening. I gained some points with hubby because I spent a couple hours watching "him" swinging at some balls...and I thoroughly enjoyed the view .

    You're so naughty!

    My hubby doesn't usually pay attention to clothing styles, he usually wears the same style of jeans every day. He has about 20 pairs because they are the required dungarees for where he works and the employer supplies them. But he has this one pair of jeans that he wears occasionally that are tan and fit just right! He looks so good in them that I can't stop staring when he wears them! One of his hobbies is working on cars, and when he wears those jeans I usually have him check my engine for a "funny noise" just so I can watch him bend over under the hood!

    Sadly, neither my wife or myself are athletically inclined. The closest we come to sports is our daily or near daily jaunt around the neighborhood.

    But we are into theater. I must say, seeing my wife on stage not only makes me proud (she is a wonderful perfomer/singer), but also gets me. . . well. . . kind of randy, especially when she wears some of the costumes required for a particular scene.

    Hmmm, you ARE a naughty girl aren't you?heehee!!!!
    My husband doesn't let me go to the gym with him anymore because I have discovered how uh...large he gets when he' and lifting those heavy weights with all that grunting and stuff. Mmmm mmm mmm. I just stand there with my mouth hanging open like he's some other guy! Then I realize "oooh. he's mine." I can go if I go to another area of the gym. I hope this doesn't offend anyone. It IS about my husband so that should be okay. But you never know these days. Anyway, uh huh. my tummy gets fluttery over my hunka burnin man!

    nauseated. .

    Did I mention the tight little ribbed shirts he's taken a liking to that show off his buff chest in an oh-so-Ricky-Martin way .

    Ok, this is a such a funny question. hmmmm. Well, when I met my husband he was a logger and I loved walking in the woods with him on a logging job. Just watching him figure out how a huge tree was going to fall and then sawing it down, the loud thump/crash when the tree hit the ground. Very cool to watch the concentration on his face. And then walking the trunk, sawing off all the limbs - takes some balance. All my kids have loved that aspect of our lives. I have photos of my two little tow-headed boys (18 and 20 now) and me with my daughter in a backpack, following their daddy around in the woods falling trees. They got such a thrill out of the sound of the saw and the tree falling. Now he is driving a logging truck (still falls occasionally) and we have to take our toddler out to the "big duke" 4 or 5 times a day to sit in the seat and pretend he is driving.

    We are encouraging our kids to go to college and forgo the timber industry - no money in it now. Lots of good memories though.

    hmmmm... those days are rapidly disappearing at my age (and hubby's 10 years older !) But he still looks very good in his work/construction levis and T-shirts... has a great set of "Popeye arms".

    But one thing I have always loved as a "turn on" is a guy shooting pool... don't know why.. something in the facial features, the concentration, leaning over the table...focused.. physique.. all seems to come together for me.

    AND.. of course... a guy kickstarting his motorcycle..of COURSE !

    (I guess even when I'm eightynine, that'll still catch my eye !)

    oh yes! Kickstarting a motorcycle! Completely agree.

    Rusty, better be careful not to post a photo of you AND the motorcycle in your avatar. . . . . :roll
