Or take away his barbeque sauce

I was just showing my husband the stippling I've completed on my daughter's quilt (1/4 of the way done!) and he was marveling at all the work I had done, or so I thought. He finally sat back and said, "Shit, if you just put all that energy into something like programming, you'd be making a mint right now."

Should I smack him upside the head or just withhold sex indefinitely?

It's a bitch sometimes, being in love with a geek. I know with 100% certainty Mike thinks that exact same thing, but with a Linux sysadmin twist. "Shit, if you'd put half the time and effort you do into learning quilting, you could configure a Gentoo box without reading the documentation."

But I don't want to configure Gentoo from the ground up, fuck off.

I say smack him and then withhold sex for a few weeks.

like I have always thought...if it has a penis, there's gonna be a problem...hugs to you, mistress of the stipple!

Go for smacking him up side the head...it is instant gratification for you.
Besides , why punish yourself by with holding sex...unless withholding is a pleasure ! LOL

Depends, does withholding the sex punish you too? If so, slap, of not, withhold. ;)

Aaaarrgggh....I was one of those in my past life....and a Fortran programmer to boot. You'll never get rich becoming a programmer because technology changes too rapidly. At the very least, you are creating something that will last. HA!

Smack him upside the head. (You'll miss the sex to early fo rit to have had an effect.)

You are a hoot! Glad I hadn't taken a sip of my tea when I read this post... otherwise I'd be wiping tea off the monitor and keyboard.
