What we have is a failure to communicate. Once again.

I am walking into the kitchen after putting dinner on table for family and hubby always praises my food and then I hear a familiar voice saying this, "I was watching you in the kitchen". I turned and looked to see who said this, of course I knew it was
the hubby. I said,, umm, ok. He replied with, "I was watching your behind",, but he said the other word that has 4 letters starting with b. I looked at him and he said, "it was nice". OK,,now I am staring him in the face waiting for an explanation,,and he
finally gets that he has passed that little place where when he says something I don't understand and it irritates me. He starts to stutter and says that "it looks like I may have been exercising or something because my behind looks rounder". OK, I can easily
reach for any pan in the kitchen once again, but he has that deer in the headlights look and tries to explain?? He explains that he was just trying to compliment me because he knows that I have been trying to walk more and get in a little better shape than
I am in, goodness knows, I need it. I said that last part not him. Some time ago there was a comment about a "flat bottomed boat",, I got a new set of glasses out of that comment,,so I think he was referring to that. Now I'm thinking about a whole new set
of dishes to go with the glasses. Hubby is not a real big talker so for him to say this was something for him, he just needs to ,,,think before he speaks? or just not?? The man is good about eating anything I put in front of him most of the time. What a trooper!
However, his way of giving me a compliment needs some work. Granted we have only been married, what is it,,,over 30+ years,,so I am giving him the benefit of the doubt ? I've added a few of pics I have taken of the foods I have cooked recently.
