Jules, when you get a chance, go grab your husband by the ears (or whatever part of his anatomy you use to get his attention) and tell him, “Someone I do not know, who has never met me and probably never will, based purely on my writing, thinks I am an astounding, amazing, inspiring, fantastic, all-around wonderful* human being. And that person thinks you’d better appreciate the living fuck out of me or you are lower than whale shit in the Marianas Trench.”

Then see what he says (after “OW!”).

It better be something nice. You deserve it and you’ve earned it.

*I would have also said “awesome,” but only my wife gets that (or more usually, “AWESOME!!”) from me. Ditto stargazer lilies.
