    As in? what! like won't go out and work, play ? what's the question? if he's become a couch potato simply tell him it's either or, show him the door. It's a one way trip out there Buster and winters coming.

    You don't, sweetie. Mind your own business.....leave the man alone. Quit trying to control him. Back off! You need to concentrate on your own behavior! Geeeeze....you are a looser!

    How about you walk in wearing a strap-on, with a bottle of rum in one hand and a tube of KY on the other.

    That ought to get him feeling uncomfortable...or maybe not.

    Let him see YOU get comfortable with the mailman, pizza boy, poolboy, gardener...etc.
