Monday Confessional: Episode 4

Confession:  I sometime deliberately goad my husband.

I can’t help it, it’s just too easy!  I’ve learned there are a handful of phrases that will consistently illicit a certain response, and it’s just so damn entertaining that I’m loathe to resist.

A few examples:

Honey, I love our new couches, but I think we need about 4 more throw pillows to really maximize comfort.

Sweetie, it’s way too cold in here, can we turn off the fan? (This occurs both at home and in the car.)

Ooh, look at this recipe for squid sushi, can we try this for dinner on Thursday?

Make sure to turn the lights on later when you walk through the living room.  I’m rearranging the furniture.

Honey, I think I need a new bookshelf.

Wouldn’t these little sweaters look so cute on the dogs this winter?

All of these things (and many, many more) are guaranteed to elicit one or more of the following responses:

  • A noticeable wincing expression
  • A rolling of the eyes
  • A low groan
  • A deep sigh of despair
  • A mumbled, “Whaaa”??
Now, I wouldn’t feel apologetic about this confession, if in fact I made all of those statements in total honesty.  But the truth is, sometime I throw them out there just to see what kind of response I can elicit.
Mea Culpa?

  1. My hubby does this to me… He normally gets an “ARE YOU KIDDING ME???”. You should work on soliciting that response.

Whatcha Thinkin?
