Husband hugged me and whispered, 'I missed you.'
Now regular readers will know that this is where Husband should have stopped but lemming-like he continued. 'I've been really busy in work AND I had to do the things you usually do.'
'I thought Younger Son took him out.'
'Well, yes, he did but I had to cook dinner.'
'You had leftover cold meat and salad one night and YS cooked fajitas the second night, so all you had to do was "cook" Sainsburys pizzas.'
'Well, I had to do the dishes!'
So what Husband meant was, 'I missed you ... doing the dishes.'
We are having a dishwasher fitted in our new kitchen so I guess he won't miss me at all after that.
