Speaker 1 (00:23):
We got it for you here it is Strawberry Letter.
Thank you, nephew. Subject It's always my fault. Dear Stephen Shirley.
My husband and I have been married for nine years.
In the beginning, we talked about starting a family, but
he wasn't able to make that happen. We went to
see a specialist and we were told that his little
swimmers are weak. The doctor said he should improve his

(00:46):
diet and exercise more often. But my husband made his
issue my fault because I cook a lot of red
meat and we eat a lot of bread and potatoes.
I was so hurt that he blamed that on me.
Then sex with him got worse. Gradually, he said it's
all my fault because I come to bed partially naked
and wearing a scarf over my hair. He said, those

(01:07):
visuals don't go together, and he can't perform with me
looking unpresentable. That hurt my feelings too. The bottom line
is he cannot perform and his main character is smaller
than normal. I have kept it in for so huh ah.
I have kept it in for so long, and I
finally got to tell him how I really feel. We

(01:29):
were being intimate and he made a loud noise and
slid away from me. He said it felt like he
pulled a muscle after I flipped over too quickly on him.
He said I was being wild. I told him I
was doing all I could so it would stay put.
I told him I was glad he pulled a muscle
because I was tired of faking the funk with him.

(01:50):
Now he's walking around the house with a heating pad
velcrow to his back, and I think he's the most
foolish man I've ever met. How can everything that's wrong,
especially in his private areas, be my fault? What do
you think? Is he blaming me for everything to cover
up his own shortcomings? Is he blaming you for everything

(02:12):
to cover up for his own shortcomings? Well? In a word. Yes, no,
man wants to face the fact that he's not the
man he thinks he is. He's not large in size,
and the doctor says he has weak sperm. All that
is a big blow to a man's ego, for sure.
But instead of trying to deal with this in a

(02:32):
mature manner, he's using it as a distraction because the
real issue is you wanting children and him not being
able to give you children. That is not your fault, period.
That is a medical problem on his part, like the
doctor said, who also gave him some solutions that could
help him build himself up. The way he's acting, the

(02:57):
way he's acting, are you sure you even want kids
with this man? I mean, I know he's your husband,
but it's good that all this came out because now
you know how he really feels about you, and it's
not very favorable. He hurts your feelings because he can't
handle the truth about himself.

Speaker 2 (03:15):
Steve Shelly, where did you see that they gave him
something to do to help himself. I missed that part.

Speaker 1 (03:22):
Oh the doctor said he should improve his diet and
exercise more often.

Speaker 2 (03:26):
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I see that. Okay, thank you?
I was lost that was up at the top. Oh
that's right, because you end your letter back at the top. Okay,
all right, I got it now, thank you. Here's the problem.
Let's just get to this letter right here. Now, I'm
gonna read this letter, but as a man, so this

(03:47):
woman don't feel bad. I'm gonna give you the cause
of all his problem. Y'all got married nine years. In
the beginning, y'all talked about have a family, but he
wasn't able to make that happen. That's a true statement, especialists,
And we were told that, let's just get to this.
His little swimmers are weak. Now let me tell you

(04:07):
why you have weak little swimmers. We are not gonna
say nothing nasty because this is all part of like
health education. In class, these little swimmers are referred to
the technical name or sperm. Now, the reason you have
little weak swimmers, it's cause swimmers need exercise to be

(04:29):
big and strong. And where do you get your exercise
that as a little swimmer in the little swimmer swimming pool.
You get your exercise in the little swimming swimming canal.
Now we have a problem because you said his main

(04:49):
character is smaller than normal. Well, not that means the
swimming canal and the swimming pool is little hard to
do laps in the kiddie pool. It's hard. You know,
all of us have children, and all of us that
bought our kids a kiddy pool at one point in time.
You go out there and fill it up with the

(05:10):
holes if you want to. But you can't do a
lap in a kitty pool. You need a lap pool
or a swimming pool. But his main character is small,
so he got a kiddie pool. Now he got the
little bitty little weak swimmers, and they tied too. Weak
swimmers get tied. They can't make it. Then we can't

(05:32):
make it. We can't make it. We can't get nowhere
because they're weak. Now that we got that out the way,
let me help this lady. In the letter, the doctor
said he should improve his diet and exercise more often.
Now fat boy ain't took his ass to the gym
and time. And now he say that's your fault because

(05:54):
you cook a lot of red meat and we eat
a lot of bread and potatoes. I was so hurt
that he blamed that on me, that the sex got
worse gradually. How can it get worse? Lord? He said,
it's my fault because I come to bed partially naked
and wearing a scarf over my head. Hell, that's do

(06:17):
you know how much if you come partially naked with
a scoff that's Jay Pott, that's jack Pot. Don't don't
that should be the greatest moment of your life. She
half niggard with a scarf on. You ain't trying to
do nothing to her scarff? What did you worry about
the scarf for?

Speaker 1 (06:35):
Hang on, Steve, we'll have part two of your response
coming up.

Speaker 2 (06:40):
Now you worry about the scarf fault?

Speaker 1 (06:42):
Twenty three minutes after the hour of today's Struwberry letter,
subject It's always my fault. We'll get back into it
right after this. You're listening hard morning show. All right,
Come on, Steve, let's recap today's Strawberry letter. The subject
is it's always my.

Speaker 2 (07:01):
Fault in all on this stuff. Feel sorry for this
lady because she got this man that's blaming her for
everything and ain't none of this her fault. They can't
have a family because they went to a specialist, and
specialist told her that they little swimmers is weak. Now
I told you in order for the little swimmers to
be able to grow up and be strong swimmers if
they have to get a lot of exercise. And you

(07:22):
need exercise if you're a swimmer in a big pool.
But if you're in a kittie pool and a little
beatty canal, you're not gonna be able to get no exercise.
It's hard to do exercise in the kitty pool because
even if you move around a lot, you're gonna splash
the water out. Now it's on the floor, and now
you can't do nothing in the kitty pool and in
the canal he got. The lady said, it's smaller. His

(07:45):
main character is smaller than normal. Lord, have mercy. Now
you got a little bitty a main character, and you
ain't got no kiddie pool. You got a kiddie pool.
It's too much small messing him. That's why your swimmers
is weak. Now, the doctor said, like Shirley pointed out
to me that he needs to improve his diet and exercise.
Fat boy ain't took his ad to the gym yet.

(08:07):
Now he blame you for the diet because y'all need
a lot of red meat, potatoes and bread. All that
could be true, but I like potatoes and bread. Yeah,
I ain't had no trouble my main character. As matter
of fact, I had talked to him all the time, say, man,
this ain't about you. Well that's what I had to
tell my main character sometimes this is not about.

Speaker 1 (08:28):
You, And I'm telling you that now.

Speaker 2 (08:32):
Well, I'm just saying he's probably never had that conversation
with his main character. His the main character ain't doing
nothing right. Hey, Hey, hey, your turn, my man, Hey,
what you doing here? We go? Now? He making up
excuses why he can't get the main character to play
the lead role. See, when you got the main character,
you got to have the lead role in the play.

(08:53):
Not now the starring lady in to play your co host.
She come to bed half naked with a scarf for
her head. He say, those two don't go together. And
it's her fault that his main character can't produce because
she's unpresentable. She half naked, she is presenting herself little

(09:14):
little swimmers, handy kiddie pool. Your main character is not
doing what he supposed to be. He got to stand
up and be old fellow. It's time to be old fellow.
You over here, you little Pinocchio. That ain't the play.
We do in tonight. Nadamnit, get the play right. Your

(09:37):
main character is reading the wrong script. You is not
little Pinocchio. And if you are tell a lie, let's
get some gross kill. Your one character good was not
following the script. Nexten to me. If the scripper's little

(10:02):
red widen hood, we need you to be the wolf.
You can't be a little red riding hood. This ain't
who we are. We need the old main character to
be the wolf. If you the three bears, you can't
keep being the little baby bear. You can't be Goldilocks.
Damn it. You need to be Papa Bell. Your main

(10:26):
character don't know the play now. We was being intimate
one time and he made a lot of noise and
slid away from me. He said it felt like he
pulled a muscle after I flipped over too quickly on him.
He said I was being wild. I told him I
was doing all all I could so we could stay put.
Because the little character over here don't can't, can't, don't

(10:49):
know how to play the whole time. See the little
character keep running around the playground. We on the sliding board,
Stay on the sliding board. What is your last over there?
Getting on the stasoft for we not got to finish
on the sliding board. Now he come talking about he
done pull the muscle because and then he said, and

(11:11):
I told him I was glad he pulled the muscle
because I'm tired of faking it, trying to hold you
in place because your main character doing the wrong. Play.
