The insane things my spouse says to keep me sane.

Snack Time

When the wife got home today, we planned a dinner date.  The restaurant doesn’t open until 4, so we’ve been goofing around, hungry, waiting for a reasonable time to leave.  As I puttered around the kitchen looking for a snack, the following exchange happened (across the house, as is one of our more common modes of communication.)  Little did the wife know that i had already found a snack, and cut it in half to share with her:

Wife - You know you have  a cupcake in there, right?

Me - You read my mind (said as I was walking back to the bedroom.)

Wife - Can I have a nibble?

(I come around the corner with the last cupcake cut in half.)

Wife - You cut it in half for me?!

Me - I did.

Wife - But how did you know I’d want some?

Me - Because you love cupcakes.

Wife - …I love cupcakes…

   When you go grocery shopping today, don’t forget my milk.  I’d also like to request work sodas for me, and some sort of snackable for at work. (bags of chips, 100 cal packs, whatever.)

 Thanks so much baby.  You rock my world.

No time at ALL.  I’ll try if I get a second, but the magic 8 ball says it looks doubtful.
