I have always hated being tickled. A tiny fluttering touch on my collarbone reduces me to giggles. A feathery brush on my sole drives a shiver up my spine. Being pinned on the bed with only a verbal suggestion of tickling sends me into spasms and tears. As you can imagine, my worst nightmare is being tickled to death. And I wonder why Gimmi loves to tickle me. (I *have* told him numerous times not to tickle me.)
Last night Gim and I were watching a movie on my PC. Perhaps not having found the pillow nearby, he decided to make my stomach his own resting place, thus, blocking my view of my monitor. The following discussion thereby followed.
Flisha: “Pooch, place your fat balding head and your puny torso away from my body. I may be soft and cuddly but I am *not* your personal couch.”
Gimmi: “Lovedoo, you are so selfish. Just listen to the movie and pretend you’re watching it. You’ve seen it anyway. Besides I’m your *visitor*. You should be more hospitable. Mind your manners, please! Ugh. Can’t get any respect in this house!”
Flisha: “Hwaaaat!!!! You insolent egoistc narcissistic chauvinist pig! You…! Ohh, I’m gonna… I am gonna…”
Gimmi: “What lovedoo? You can’t do anything. You love me entirely too much. You can’t live without me. Can’t even bear not seeing me every single day of your life. I mean, don’t you sometimes go mad on Sundays?”
Flisha: “Ohhhhh, you are SO gonna get it! I’m gonna tickle you to death!!!!”
Gimmi: “Flisha, NO! Nooooo………”
Luckily, I was able to document the horrible scene that transpired.

I have now created a new rule in my relationship contract with Gim. And it goes something like this: “Gim will never be allowed to tickle Flisha in any possible way, including, but not limited to physical, verbal or mental/ESP-cal means. By tickle, we mean, anything that resembles unchecked, uncontrollable, screaming, shrieking, gasping, mouth-drying, de-oxygen-izing, tonsil-rupturing, saliva-showering, lung-collapsing, heart-attack-inducing, hyena-sounding, body-convulsing laughter. If this rule is violated in any way, the relationship between Flisha and Gim is considered null and void, unless Flisha decides to punish Gim by no less than 100 strokes of the cane. Flisha, however, can tickle Gim anytime she wants to.”
