    This is going one swell of a business trip.

    Room service! I’m here to bring you your tray and an insult for married women.

    Not really. Nobody looks very good first thing in the morning, men or women. Fortunately, when people are in love, they don’t care much about how each other looks when they wake up.
    .
    The commercials are funny: makeup is perfect, hair is perfect, etc. when someone wakes up.

    Most hotels where I have stayed will make a phone call to wake you up in the morning.

    The UPS and USPS men have seen me in all sorts of early morning ugliness. Morning breath, messy hair, no contacts so I am squinting, and whatever ratty t-shirt/pj pants combo (usually not matching) I happen to be wearing when I open the door. They’re working so they and room service care not what you look like. They’re there to earn a paycheck and that’s all. Save the primping for your hubby. ;)

    She bought her special new nightgown to show to someone. I guess it’s not going to be the room service guy, since he is already married and Elly didn’t wake up early enough to be ready for him.

    That is probably the ‘special’ nightgown. Sometimes for a mom the specialness of the new nightgown is that it is non-stained with kid stuff and does not have any holes

    This is why I never dated girls who wore makeup. Didn’t want any surprises in the morning. At age 87 my wife still looks good without makeup and 20 years younger than her age.

    Oops, I meant age 57. Stupid laptop keyboard. My momma isn’t even 87 yet!

    Well bless your heart, dbartley, I hope your good wife doesn’t read that 87. You’ll have a hard time convincing her she looks good without makeup! ;-)

    WTF? Why do you care how Room Service sees you? Be glad they showed up so you didn’t oversleep and miss your meetings.

    But suppose you had a wife from a ’50s era movie, dressed in a silk gown with full makeup?

    On a trip to Hawaii years ago that involved airplane problems, long delays and a trip that should have taken 8 hours stretching into 14 our luggage did not arrive with us.
    Exhausted we checked into our hotel and crashed. Sometime in the wee hours of the morning our bags arrived and the hotel staff brought them to us. I got up to allow the young man and woman to bring our bags in.
    When we got up my wife told me that, yes, I threw on a robe when I answered the door, but I failed to close it. I have always slept “in the raw”.
    At least that was back when I had my young, athletic body. It would be much worse now with my older, saggy, flabby body!

    87 and still alive is already good!

    One time, though I was a bit older, I had a girlfriend who was just 17 but still plastered on the makeup even though she had beautiful porcelain skin, as is typical for that age. She was always checking herself in the mirror and primping her hair and adding makeup even though she looked great. I couldn’t understand it until I realized she was just using me to meet other girls.
