I asked Mrs. Hold if we could have sex this morning. She turned me down. She asked if we could cuddle instead. I said sure. She said she likes to cuddle, but she fears to ask for it. She thinks I will get too frustrated if we "just" cuddle. I told her not to worry about that, I like to cuddle and I would like to be asked. She said "you are beyond being frustrated, aren't you?" I agreed. We cuddled. It was pleasant. I am trying to see this as a good thing. That we know each other well. Even if it has been weeks and my needs go unmet.

When you can see it coming, duck!
