In which he makes her coffee

Sometimes it’s a burden being so logical.  Well, I suppose being logical AND having a big mouth.  Here’s an example:


As you may recall, Keely and I flew to Los Angeles while she checked out the city and we stayed with some friends.  We arrived the first evening and as we were all getting ready to go to sleep, I noticed that Ken (the husband) was preparing a tray for the next morning.


On the tray were a coffee cup and a small carafe of coffee.  Of course, me being me, I asked what the story was with the tray.


Me:                              what’s up with the tray?

Amy (my friend):      it’s my morning coffee.

Me:                              why’s it on a tray?

Amy:                           because every morning Ken brings me coffee in bed

Me:                              what? Are you serious?

Ken:                            yes, I’ve done it for years

Me:                              why?

Amy:                           well, Ken knows that I’m not a morning person and I’m a bear if I don’t get my morning coffee and nobody wants to be around me so he brings me my coffee before I have to deal with anybody.

(Here’s where the logic part comes in)


Me:                              but Amy, there IS no one around you.  You’re an empty nester and when Ken leaves you’re alone in the house so technically you could get your own coffee

Amy:                           wow… I never thought of that.  We’ve just always done this

So at that point, they were both looking at me and this was our first night there and I figured I’d get kicked out.


Afterwards, I felt bad because it is a cute thing that Ken does and I shouldn’t make fun of that fact right??


But lets be honest here…I’m just a troublemaker.  Plus I’m logical.  Plus I always get up when Kevin gets up because I just feel guilty if I don’t.


The point is, if you want your marriage destroyed you should probably just invite me to stay.  I’m sure I’ll find something to criticize.

    Well YOU were there, and if he didn’t bring her the coffee while she had guests, maybe she would totally have eaten you for breakfast or something.

    This woman clearly knows the proper way to train a man. I detest vacuuming. Like with a white hot passion. And as every man who has ever lived with me will tell you, it also makes my back hurt. The agony is so severe that the only activity I can do for the next, oh say, three days is recline on the sofa with a heating pad on my back. Anything more athletic in the bed room is strictly out of the question. All three of the men I have lived with found vacuuming to be an extremely macho and rewarding experience. This is a lesson for very early in the relationship.
