Spring break beach parties

I need to start off this post by saying that MM would be embarassed as hell if he knew I am blogging about this.  But I think it is funny, so I want to share it.  He doesn't read my blog, so what he doesn't know won't hurt him.  LOL

First, some background.  My home computer, like most, came pre-loaded with Internet Explorer.  I prefer using Mozilla Firefox as my browser, so I downloaded it some time ago and use that instead.  MM is not as tech-savvy as I, and the only way he knows to get on the internet is to click on IE's blue e symbol. . . . so he uses IE as his browser.

When I woke up this morning and went to the computer to read blogs and work emails--as I do every morning--I noticed a minimized IE window.  Still semi-asleep, I maximized the window and saw that it was a website called  Obviously, this was the last site MM had visited before going to bed the night before, and he had simply forgotten to close the window.

Three guesses about the content of the website.  Yeah, although what I saw was merely the home page bearing the message "You must be 18 years or older to access this site!", it was fairly obvious that there would be some photos of naked girlies on there.

Unlike many women, the idea of my significant other looking at porn is not offensive to me.  Sure, if it were gay porn, child porn, or animals, I might be concerned, for a variety of reasons. . . . or if he were substituting porn for a normal intimate relationship with me.  But just your basic red-blooded American male looking at some naked women?  I have no problem with that.

Even though I didn't have a problem with it, I did think it was funny and brought it to MM's attention.  At first, he thought I was "checking his history" . . . . until I explained to him how I don't even use that web browser and showed him how he had minimized the window rather than closing it.  (As if I would be checking up on him!)

MM was quite embarassed, even though I told him I didn't care (as outlined above).  He was all "well, at least it was just naked women" and "I really don't look at that stuff very often."  Tee hee  I teased him a little, until he asked me to stop.  I was a little surprised at how embarassed he got.

Ah, the joys of once again having a man living in my home.  ;-)

This is too cute! I have no problem at all with Chris looking at naked women, at least its women, right :) I think that is completely normal and healthy even. what a cute story, and congratulations on having a new roomie and it going to well. That's awesome!
