When I spoke recently for the Braille Institute yearly fundraiser, I had several questions from the audience concerning husband Hank’s and my most recent book SLEEPING WITH YOUR ENEMY/HELP I’M MARRIED. The most interesting question was: After 56 years of marriage, what do the two of you do when you are angry with each other?
Answer: Since I believe in the RED NOSE ATTITUDE and give out red (sponge)noses when I speak…If I’m mad with Hank I put on the red nose (before I blow my top.) This tells Hank I am really ticked off.
When I’m calmed down enough to talk about my anger, I take off the nose and we talk.
When Hank is mad with me, he takes off all his clothes, puts on the red nose and starts playing the piano (when the kids were at home he put on his favorite hat and played the piano.) It’s up to Hank to decide when he is ready to talk.
