You’re, barking UP the wrong trees, ‘cuz, he ain’t, buyin’ it!!! Translated…
If there’s competition on the sweetest lips, I’d surely be in the top spots.
I’d found the opportunities, and, readied myself, for the acts, it’s just, that the person I’d tried sweetened myself up to, hated the sweetness, and always, he’d, managed, to turn me back into my original form, although there’d be many things that went wrong, as I’d, played coy with my husband, regardless, it was, still fun.
On that day, as my husband was folding up the laundry, he’d told me, “I’m in for an overtime tomorrow again!”
The firecrackers started sounding off inside my mind, I’d started, planning my itinerary for the following evening, but as a wife, my conscience reminded me, to play that role of a wife who’d, be, missing him so, and so, I’d, rushed up to him, hugged tightly on him, lifted my head toward him, made sure he maintained eye contact, then, I’d, started, frowning, showed that look of unwillingness, and told him, “if you’re working overtime, what’ll happen to me then?”
AT this time, he’d not changed his expressions one bit, told me, “Are you serious? I’d not worked overtime last night, and you’d gone out with your coworkers to dine, and didn’t come home until ten in the evening.”, suddenly, a flock of crows flew by overhead, those of us with lips like sugar, we never mean what we say, and I can only, laugh dryly.

Later on, one day, I’d gone out to a gathering with my coworkers, and I’d, stayed out too late, as I’d stepped in, he, who’d, watched the house asked, “hey honey, why are you so late tonight?”
I’d felt ashamed, but didn’t want to admit, and told him, “Do you know where I ate my supper tonight?” He’d stared at me, as if, he was waiting to watch a good show, I’d continued, “it was the restaurant where you and I ate our first meal together, because there were so many wonderful memories there, I’d, suddenly, got caught up, and then, I’d, come home late”. I’d, minced my lips, to make myself seemed even more innocent.
He’d used his natural way, walked toward me, took my elbow in his hands, smiled and told me, “We’re, quite all right now!”, meant, that my sweet talk didn’t work on him, that it was, more important, to enjoy the moments we are sharing right now, than to, reminisce the past.

I’d suddenly felt my heart skipping beats, and, became flustered, then, I’d, suddenly, stood up straight, like a soldier, reporting, “Yes sir! Everything my husband said is, always right!”, then, he’d, let down his defenses, I thought.
But, living in the real world, he’d not acted humble when he was supposed to, and now, he’d, laughed aloud, “You’re, too cunning, how can you say that? A husband is wrong at times too!”, I’d felt, that if one day, I’m his manager, I’d needed, to show him some colors!
And so, the way they’d, interacted, surely, put some fun into their ordinary lives, don’t you think? And, because this husband doesn’t buy into what his wife is selling, therefore, his wife can’t get under his skins. But you gotta admit, it’s, kinda fun, watching this interaction happening, in their marriage.
