MTO

Difference one word makes...

Recommended Posts

It`s funny how many words, just by themselves, can get you in trouble. Some can get you in trouble when used at the end of a sentence.

The "F" word for example, and any other "swear" word used in the wrong place can get you in hot water.

But let`s take the word "today"

Now I know most of you are thinking how a word like "today" can cause any trouble.

Well, this evening that exact word did just that. 

I came home from the shop pretty crusty so I sat on the LR floor as usual to pet the dog and my wife brings my supper in for me.

I like to watch "Little House on the Prairie" while I eat. 

She brought me a big glass of ice water in and asked if I was staying home or going back to shop.

Told her I was going back to work, then she sighed.

This is when it happened.

I said to her, to maybe lessen her anger,

"You look nice...today"

I stayed home and mowed the yard.

Had to get up and go get my own plate of supper too.... sigh.

Well MTO the first mistake you made was related to "and my wife brings my supper in for me."

What's the deal, are your hands and arms painted on your body?  Are you a para-pa-legic?  The correct thing to do would be after coming in from the shop would be to say "Honey, how can I pitch in to make supper for US?"

Some people never learn.....

If you've wrote a manual on how to keep your woman happy, I'll be first in line to buy it!!  I thought MTO was the resident expert...

Nope. No way. I fix everything else around here. She fixes the meal. Stay out of the kitchen and out of her way!

 

And never comment on looks until asked. Much safer.

First, I showed her Lorenzo`s sign.

She read it, paused, then stated "criticize" was misspelled.

Then she asked if the infamous Lorenzo was married to which I dropped my head.

But to address Atila`s comment, if I "allow" her to serve me, it gives her a sense of being needed and allows her to feel the sense of accomplishment and pride.

The same feeling I gave her when I chose her over ALL the others wanting to change their last names to mine.

It all started with one simple word, today. 

And that was yesterday... sigh.

The better one is "never criticize your husband's choice, YOU were one of them...."
