Sometimes I get on Husband’s nerves.
Or so he says. I know I can
Ever since my first child was born I’ve strategically used that to my advantage. Ten months of pregnancy, 24 hours of labor, and two hours of pushing is a great comeback when you want to get out of something and don’t want to sound like a wimp. When all else fails it’s my favorite and most frequently used comeback line. Let me show you how it works:
Husband: “Are you going to help me clean the garage?”
Me: “Dude, I gave you a son. Not today.”
And, once my daughter was born and I had two births under my belt it was really on.
Husband: “Let’s get the backyard done today.”
Me: “I bore your children; I’ve done enough hard work for this decade.”
Ok, my success rate is not too high (about 25 percent) but still you would think Husband would be grateful that after nine years of hearing the same ol’ comeback I whipped out a new line on him this week.
Husband: “Are you going to the grocery store today?”
Me: “Um, I just ran a marathon.”
I wonder how long I can milk this one …
