As a newlywed, inuendos start to pop up in conversation when I least expect them. Tonight's rock climbing lesson is a perfect example.
When we were putting on our gear, the instructor asked my husband, "Have you been practicing those knots yet?" with a twinkle in his eye and a crack of a smile turned up. Francesco got it right away. I took a second for me to follow the thread that jumped from the two knots we learned to tie in our last class to our activities in bed. Being a married couple now allows these jokes to arise.
I ended up smiling, almost embarrassed, partially for the topic and also for the time lapse of not catching the twist immediately.
Even while ready to scale a rock wall, sex is on the table.
