"Why do you have a post-it with be accountable on it?"
I hesitate. "Let me finish drying my hair."
How did I forget to take that down? I run my hands through my hair, heat delaying my response, thinking through how I'll explain it.
I switch off the hairdryer. "Well?"
"Well. I put on a few pounds since Christmas" I have, hardly anything but I don't want it to be the start of an upward trend "and I know you don't notice, but it's just there to remind me. Don't sit at your desk and eat rubbish."
His eyes on me I go to him.
Later we're eating an amazing lunch and sharing a bottle of white. They clear the main course and I lean close to him and say I don't know if you meant to make me feel lovely, earlier, but you did.
Oh, and how.
