Ever since we got married three years ago, Mr. Handsome and I have had a bit of a dilemma with the hand towels in our home. Before I go into detail, I must first say that Mr. Handsome is a great husband, and even though cleanliness and organization aren’t nearly as important to him as they are to me, he tries very hard to keep our house clean because he knows how happy it makes me.
That being said, he does have one habit that has been especially hard to break. He suggested that I share it with you all, in hopes that it will help him overcome his struggle.
Whenever Mr. Handsome dries his hands, whether in the bathroom or in the kitchen, the towel never seems to find its way back to the towel rack. In fact, it often ends up on the other end of the house, in some obscure location. I have encouraged him to try simply leaving the towel on the rack while drying his hands, so he doesn’t have to remember to put it back, but he says that his hands are so large that he needs to pull it off in order to fully dry them. (Perhaps I just need to buy bigger towels, although I have never seen a size between hand towel and bath towel.) And while he’s drying his hands, he usually starts walking away and ends up absentmindedly dropping the towel in some random place when he’s finished.
Until I brought it up, he didn’t realize he was doing it. He has recently been trying to kick the habit, and we decided that when he does, we will go out to his favorite restaurant to celebrate. But it hasn’t been easy, and I think it’s going to take some time.
Do you (or did you) have a funny habit that is hard to break? Or perhaps someone you live with does?
