Woes of a Repentant Wife

She: Honey I can't use our toothpaste anymore.

Him: Why?

She: Because I just remembered Crest burns my mouth. It feels like I'm brushing my teeth with acid.

Him: Ok.

She: What? Ok? This is not ok. Did you hear what I just said? Acid, honey. It's awful. I'm buying new toothpaste.

Him: Ok.

She: You need to be more sensitive to me. You should be caring about my toothpaste problems.

Him: Baby, I'm sorry it burns your mouth. That must be really hard.

She: Ugh nevermind. I don't want your pity sympathy.

The teeny tiny rice bag explosion.
Life is just hard sometimes.

You know what I'm saying?

Toothpaste makes your mouth feel like crap (not literally). Rice bags aren't as durable as you once thought. Muddy buddies only sound good for breakfast.

So it's important to keep things in perspective.

And show a little Gratitude.
For a husband that doesn't take himself (or me,obviously) too seriously.
One who knows when to surrender.
Always has a trick or two up his sleeve.
Isn't afraid to give life a roundhouse smack to the face when it needs it.
But, perhaps most importantly, is there for me on the rainy days.
So if you need a little cheering up. If today, or yesterday, or tomorrow, end up not going as planned and get you a little down..wise up and give some love to those who love you when you need it most. You'll be feeling better before you know it.
