Day 16 of #Janblogaday: I would do anything for love… but I won’t do that. // Little guest post from the hus… because I would do anythingggg for love 🙂

This is a real and recent conversation I had to have with the wife. I love her. But really?
Me: Hey babe, can you come in here?Linds?
(Linds not paying attention at all because the Big Bang Theory is on; she pretends to work very hard on something very important, which I, of course, completely believe)
Me: Hello? Hellloooo?(Walking out of bathroom)What are you working on?
Me: What are you working on?
Wife: Um, I got distracted.
Me: By what?
Wife: Pinterest. And I read four articles about Les Miserables. We should see that.
Me: Four articles? I was calling you from the bathroom. Did you not hear me?
Wife: I don’t think you were calling me.
Me: Yeah, I was. For like 10 minutes.
Wife: For like one minute, maybe.
Me: Will you come look at something?
Wife: Like what? A baked cake you hid as a surprise for me? New shoes? A watch? A trip to Fiji?!!
Me: Um, no. (No answer from my wife… she is reading a fifth article now, I presume) Linds, can you not get toothpaste all over the bathroom?
Wife: I don’t. I mind all toothpaste rules.
Me: No, no you don’t. It’s all over. I can’t even use this tube anymore.
Wife: It wasn’t me.
Me: Who was it then?
Wife: You did that. You’re messy when you brush.
Me: You’re messy. Does it even stay in your mouth?
Wife: That’s what she said.
I really would do almost anything for love… but sharing toothpaste… no more.
