the downside of marriage life -- part five

japanese traditional wedding

I placed an order to a online shop and gave them my hubby's contacts. Nothing unusual here -- I just like to remain anonymous to online shops and services and my hubby doesn't mind receiving spam *ahem* promotional texts every once in a while.

So this shop, a bag shop in particular, told my husband last night that the item I wanted was out of stock. They haven't updated their website since.

Annoyed, I asked my husband to tell them to switch to another product, a silver-colored woman purse.

the beige one is pretty, don't you think?
The product I originally wanted.

This evening my hubby casually mentioned a gold-colored purse that's on the way.

"Gold? I ordered silver!"

'Last night they texted back and said there's only gold ones left. I asked you and you said OK.'

I want the silver one!

"I didn't remember saying OK to a gold purse. What was I doing at that time you asked me?"

'I dunno, you were laying on bed, alternating between opening and closing your eyes and stuff.'

"You choose the time when I was drifting to sleep to pop the question? Like for reeaal?"

the downside of marriage life -- part four


My wife is weird... She begins every conversation with "Were you even listening to me?"

I laughed (and still laugh, sometimes) at jokes about couples where the man won't listen to the woman. But then I experience some.

A man's brain part that accepts a girl's voice seem to degenerate once he's married to that girl. Repeating a piece of information three times doesn't guarantee that it will get through a man's skull. A married one, that is. And only if his wife's the one speaking.

So it happened that I put two pills on a saucer on the nightstand. One was pink. It contained B-12 vitamin. The other is green. It was GNC women's hair, skin & nails formula. I told my husband to take the pink one, the green one was for me (obviously).

The green one.

Later when I wanted to take the green one, there's nothing on the saucer. I rushed to my husband only to find out that he had taken them both as the result of his habit of not listening to what I say.

... I can't say I didn't enjoy seeing his face after I told him the green one was for women only. Like he's afraid he would grow a pair of breasts or something. XD
