I was really stressed this morning, and Jeffrey kept trying to tease me out of it. I told him that when I'm irritated, being teased just makes me more irritated, because I'm not good natured when I'm upset, and I can't handle it. I told him that just being in his presence would calm me down and relax me if he would just stop teasing me and just hold me or hold my hand or put his arm around me.
So, he stopped teasing me, and it worked.
I wonder when we'll actually tell each other we love each other. "It is every day implied, but never declared."
