6 Reasons to Send Nude Pictures to Your Deployed Spouse
3) Honesty IS the Best Policy
Thanks to our frequent communication, the old adage that we shouldn’t be sharing every single detail during a deployment has gone the way of the dinosaur. Today’s military spouse understands that even though there may be thousands of miles between you, there is no reason your spouse shouldn’t be just as involved in every single minute of your day as when they are home. So naturally, making sure that they get to see us naked just as frequently as if they were right here with us is a good thing. Besides… omitting any detail of our lives during deployment can be a sign that you are not being honest in your marriage (or so I have been told). I want to have an honest marriage and omit nothing. So pictures of me naked shaving my legs are on the way!
2) No One Wants to be a Politician Anymore
Look. I know what I said about the internet being secure and all, but if we are being totally honest there is a really slim chance that pictures could get out. Now most employers (like schools, churches and law firms, etc.) really don’t care how many naked pictures of you are floating around on the internet. It is just a part of your character. But the exception would be politics. We all know that anyone who wants to be a politician must lead a squeaky clean life from start to finish and that nude photos are not a part of that perfect picture. But, really… who wants to be a politician these days? Have you SEEN how many hours the members of Congress work? They are literally working themselves silly… and for really no pay at all.
1) There is NO Better Way to Say “I Love You”
We have all done the care package thing. We have all written sappy love letters and emails to express our love. We have all spent months and months taking care of things at home so that they can do their job with less worry. But those things are just not the ultimate expression of love anymore. Truly, there is no better way to show your support for your service member than to take a picture of you with a duck face, laying spread eagle on a bear rug in 6 inch hooker heels. Actually, I get a bit teary eyed when I think about it.
So, what are you waiting for? I better go. My wine delivery and friend with a budding photography business just showed up. I can’t wait for my husband to see these!
