This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
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
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.
