Then while painting, you ask me what my special gifts are, I answered the question (acting, singing, etc.), then you take me to task for it??? If you don't want to know, don't ask!
Terry walks in, and as usual, the talk turns to surgery. Yes Alexis, we know you don't need the knowledge of plastic surgery, you have had enough procedures to know what he's talking about.
Finally when Terry was making jokes about weddings and our marriage, I walked out of the room to shut it down. I didn't guzzle a drink, I had the last sip of champagne in my glass, told Brian that Terry had gone cuckoo, then I came back and tried to regroup. I didn't want to fight in front of new friends. That doesnt make me an actress, Alexis, it makes me an appropriate party hostess!
Bottom line: You just met me, lay off. If you have a real issue with me, then we can talk.
Well, one more thing. . .Terry is not off the hook for his behavior. He was doing his usual "vaudeville" routine about our marriage, weddings, etc. I was really embarrassed in front of the girls. He was meeting everyone for the first time! He thinks he is being funny, and it went too far. My feelings were hurt. We discussed it later and he understands how I feel about jokes at my expense. I'm sensitive! He apologized, and, of course, I forgive him. He's a great guy and I love him dearly, but it's always good to work on your marriage and be open and honest with each other.
