|The day the Earth stood still.|
In five days, my wife and I will mark seven years of marriage. In this edition of Love Letters, I’ll be counting down the biggest moments of our marriage and how they made us stronger.
In case you missed it, here’s Part 1
Marriage Moment No. 2 – Edd Meets Keith Sweat
Unless this is your first day on Soul In Stereo (and if so, where have you been?) you know all about me and Keith Sweat. People constantly ask “WHY do you love Keith Sweat so much?” The answer is simple – his music sounds like melodies raining down from Mount Olympus. Keith is THAT DUDE.
The wifey knows my Keith admiration better than anyone and it proves she’s the strongest woman I know. Could YOU put up with me singing “Right and a Wrong Way” a capella all day long?
Despite those annoyances, she moved heaven and earth to arrange a one-on-one meeting between me n’ Keith in 2009. You can read all about it here – it’s one of my favorite pieces I’ve written. Shocking, I know.
Lesson of the day: There seems to be a huge misconception among some women that it’s only right for a man to shower them with gifts, attention, affection, etc., while we dudes fend for ourselves. Nope, it goes both ways. If you want your man to treat you like a queen, you’d better pamper him like the king of the castle. The wifey pulled major strings to allow me to meet Keith only because she knows I’d do the same for her.
Ugh, in that case, I guess I need to work on kidnapping Justin Timberlake.
