Hitting A Bum Note!

I thought it would be fun to share this with you again, this time with an added extra!!

 

What was it about your partner that attracted you to them in the first place?….I have known my husband (Mr Grump) for 30 years now in total, but we have only been together this time for about 8 years. The story of how we met is here. Anyway, back in the 80’s, I was attracted to his spiky hair (now he has none), his flirtatious manner (that ended up splitting us up), his dress sense (he used to resemble Midge Ure), and lastly his sexy bum!, Now of course, I am not as shallow as to go by looks alone;  he has a great sense of humour (that is vital for me), and a very thoughtful nature.

Last night Mr Grump had a couple of drinks, and as is normally the case on these occasions, he put some music on. Another thing that we both have in common is our fondness for 80’s music (much to Miss Hap’s disgust)!  As we were on our own last night, Mr Grump decided to do some dancing for me which included a bit of ‘twerking’! I don’t know if it was supposed to be sexy or something, but it had the opposite effect and I roared my head off, it was so funny. For a start, he hasn’t quite grasped what ‘twerking’ is. As old and unfashionable as I am, I have Miss Hap to keep me up to speed on the latest dance moves of which she excels, (thank God she doesn’t have my two left feet) Mr Grump thought that wagging his bottom about in front of me, is what it’s all about. Such a shame, bless him. The once sexy bum that he had in his youth has kind of disappeared and is now completely flat!

I did tell him this last night, and he reminded me of a time when he and myself, sister and brother-in-law, and niece and her fiance were out for an evening together. For some reason, the men went on ahead and the three of us were chatting as we walked behind them. I don’t know where it came from but a remark was made along the lines of,

“Look at that, three men and not an arse between them”! I think our penchant for a nice peachy rump must run in the family, but all we have got between us is one that is as flat as a pancake. one whose trousers are halfway down a non-existent arse, as there is nothing there to hold them up and the last one is very tall and skinny with legs up to his armpits but no bum in the middle! (Luckily they do all have other qualities that outweigh their lack of pert derrieres).

Mr Grump treated me to a bit of ‘Dad dancing’ instead, seeing as his ‘twerking’ wasn’t cutting it with me. Realising  I was still unimpressed, he gave up totally, got the ironing board out and started cracking on with a week’s worth of ironing whilst listening to the music!  Now THAT is an attractive quality in a partner!

  1. The men in my family have flat rumps too! And display a plumber’s crack to boot 🙂 i wish mine would iron to music, but I guess you can’t have it all. He does the reno, maintenance, gardening…….

    1. HaHA! Oh, I am familiar with the plumber’s all to much, saadly!!!! 🙂

  2. I’m surprised he hasn’t gone viral.

  3. Lol, love the tern ‘dad dancing’ 🙂

    1. It is quite a popular term over here (It is nearly always applied to when dads get up on the dancefloor at a wedding or something like and show off their moves, despite them being embarrassing to everyone that knows him)!

      1. Love it! Oh, and btw, I read and reviewed your book on Amazon and Goodreads. I’ll be featuring it in 2 weeks on my Sunday reviews. 🙂

        1. Thank you SO much Debby! I hope you enjoyed it 🙂

  4. In addition to all your words, I read your Mr. Grumps as a warmhearted, loving and supportive gentleman. This made me laugh out loud. Tell him to practice the twerking some more. He’s got potentials 😉

    1. Ha! Yes, he has the fluidity with his moves! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the reblog 🙂

  5. […] He informed me that he liked to have things nice for his wife (he had been at the beer). and as Miss Hap had gone upstairs by then thought he would put on a bit of 80s music which I always enjoy. I even got a bit of his ‘twerking’ thrown in as he did here. […]

  6. I just found this post. It’s hilarious, Edwina. I get such a giggle thinking of your Mr. Grump trying to reclaim his title of Mr. Rump! Do very much agree though…….helping out around the house is much more attractive…..amazing how perspectives change through the years, yes?

    1. Ha Ha Mr Rump!! he would love that. Yes, I have to say that perspectives do change over the years 🙂

  8. […] set the scene a bit, you may remember that I complained about Mr Grump not having any sort of a bum here. Well, meet Dave! He has got a bum to be proud of and he’s not afraid to strut […]

  10. I’m a bit of a bum girl myself and it’s a sad but true fact that men don’t seem to keep their backsides as they age. Now I’ve also got to admit that the idea of a man doing the ironing is ridiculously sexy.

    1. Yes, well it certainly beats watching a 52 year old man with no arse trying to twerk!

  12. Hilarious. I am cracking up at the idea of your Mr. Grump’s flat-rumped twerking.

    1. It is a sight to behold! (With your eyes shut if you have any sense)! 🙂

  14. so funny. my man has no bum either, which means his pants are often falling down and I get a lot of views like the cartoons at the top of your blog!
    Love him, anyways!!!
    If he ever tried to twerking I would probably, well, laugh my ass off!

    1. It is a shame that there is such a lack of bum once they get older, I personally don’t suffer from that affliction, being rather generously proportioned in that department! However, if I dared to twerk (even if I could) you would probably feel the shockwaves over in Canada!
