Argument of the Long Married



She made french toast this morning with a limited number of bread slices available.

Her: Come and get it Honey, these are yours.
Him: I don't need that much, take those two.
Her: No, you eat more than me, I have enough right here.
Him: Well, I'm not taking that last one, it's yours.
Her: I don't want it, honestly. I would say so if I wanted it.
Him: No you wouldn't. You lie all the time and say you don't want something when I know you do.
Her: Um, no, you are the one who does that because you think you are selfish, so you over-compensate by pretending you don't want stuff.
Him: I am not going to eat that last one, do what you want.
Her: I do not want it either, guess I will give it to the dog. (Totally bluffing.)
Him: Whatever. (Totally bluffing also.)

Layla (the dog) won this argument.

  1. Gee, it sure looks good. If neither of you want it, I'll eat it! LOL!!! I understand this conversation completely. Except we don't have a dog to eat ours...but we do have an adult son who will gladly eat it if we don't want to take the last piece!
    This was pretty funny! Thanks for sharing with us. :)

    1. I wish mine looked as nice as that pic, but it's not mine. He left the room and I thought he had eaten the last one. Then I saw it in the pan and thought "I'll show him" and tossed it to Layla. Ha!

  2. I remember those conversations all too well. Sally Sue (the Basset Hound) usually came out best in our house. :)

  3. Susie: We have a similar "Adult Discussion" over the fact that I don't eat as much as Hubby. But we don't have a dog.
    This afternoon we went to Fazoli's and had lunch. I got a low calorie bakes spaghetti. (One reason it's low calorie is that it's a very small order.) He kept tellling me to go get me something else. I chowed down on the bread sticks.We share the four we get with our meal and I go and get four more.)

    1. Why do they do this? It's ok for them to eat more than us. And breadsticks will get me every time!!

  4. I can see Layla winning that one. Though I suspect some of the human conversation was invented or edited for this blog.

    But what do I really know; I'm only a Bear.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    1. Bear - I assure you that I only edited the conversation by making it a bit shorter, but otherwise all true and verbatim. :)

  5. I remember a much-longer-married friend quipping to me once when I was young, "We've been having the same argument for 30 years. You'd think we'd have perfected it by now." Now that we've reached that stage, I remember those words every time we haul out one of our old faithfuls. Sometimes we just start laughing, and suggest we should number them. We don't argue about food--he always eats more, and finishes mine. That's what happens when you marry someone 14" taller than you, but we have others just as meaningful--like when we are putting clean sheets on our bed and comparing how much top sheet we each have on our respective sides. Sometimes we practically need to get out a ruler to make sure we each have exactly the same amount--and this is an every Saturday afternoon/evening task...Anyway, I love that you gave the last piece to Layla when he left the room. Yep, I love it.

    1. Ha! Great quote! And yes, we could totally number our recurring arguments and save a lot of time.
