Yes, we argue

The kitten's on the table! I can't believe she jumped up there again!

She was investigating your water glass, you shouldn't have left it there.

But I just put it there two seconds ago.

And she noticed it one second ago.

So it's my fault?

I'm just saying. . .


Where are the tals?

The what?

The clean tals for the bathroom?

Oh, towels! You said tals. I didn't understand you.

Whatever. We've been married for 17 years, you should understand me by now.

Sorry, I never understand that tals thing. That word is just too weird.

My fault I suppose.

I'm just saying. . .


Why isn't there salad dressing on the table?

Um, because there's no salad?

But I want it on my rice.

Nobody puts salad dressing on rice.

I do.

Honey, you're scaring the kids. And me. Here's the salad dressing.

I got some ice cream. Want some?

I would, but is that vanilla? Why do you always get vanilla? That's not even a flavor.

I like vanilla.

I'll pass.

I got super brownie chocolate chunk for you.

I love you. I'll get the spoons.

LOL! So like home. Hubs and I have been married almost ten years now and have never had a fight. No, really. But, since we are together now 24/7, he does get on my nerves. And I'm sure I get on his too. I have to say salad dressing on rice kinda scares me too...

well love is super chocolate brownie chunk!


Hahaha!! That was awesome!

I can completely relate to the 'tals' thing. My husband is from Oklahoma. I'm from Toronto. There are words I have a hard time with after over 13 years of knowing him.
