Me: Honey, I am so excited! I have this really great blog set up where I can spout off about being a housewife and all the shit that goes with it.Hubby: (Staring at the television) Uh Huh....
Me: Can I talk to you about it?
Hubby: (Because he is of course well trained, looks away from the TV, and gives me his full attention) Sure!
Me: OK so I am thinking I should occasionally post a male perspective.
Hubby: O.K.... Sounds good
Me: So basically, I want you to complain about me on my blog.
Hubby: (Just looks at me) What?
Me: You know, find faults of mine and complain about them from the male perspective.
Hubby: (doing the safe thing and staying silent)
Me: So what do you think?
Hubby: Is this a trick?
Me: No I am totally serious.
Hubby: (Stares at me)
Hubby: I don't know......
So I decided to let him think on it. As impatient as I am I was eagerly awaiting a response while at the same time trying not to bug him to give me one.
Eventually he came through!
Hubby: So I was thinking about what you said earlier about your blog.....
Hubby: And... this will totally be like a camaraderie-type thing, right? Like when you and I joke around with each other. No offense taken, right?
Me: Absolutely! Because as you know I will be writing about you too.
Hubby: OK... sounds like fun.
Ha Ha Ha! Sucker!
