Husband puts his foot in it again

Husband said, 'Are you watching television tonight?'
'Yes, but I have to do my pre-holiday beautifying first.'
'So, no, you won't be watching television then.'

I glared at him and he thought quickly. 'I mean it takes you a long time not that you need a lot of beautifying.' 
I frowned doubtfully.
'I think you're gorgeous as you are.'

Hm, think he can get away with that?

I've painfully discovered over the years that whatever a man says to a woman about her appearance is always wrong. Whatever the man says, the woman is always expecting something else. It's a verbal minefield.

Husband does with amazing regularity, Mauigirl!

Indeed, Di. x

It's a goo job love covers a load of mistakes, Nick!

Have a lovely time, wherever it may be - did we discuss that at Verdis, I wonder? See, not just hubbies with feet in mouths - buddies do it too.

My husband still hasn't figured out the right way to say something either, after nearly 45 years:)

nick said...

Rose, that's because there is no right way....

Foot and mouth disease rife in your household?

I continue to consider your husband a role model and potential mentor you know... ;-)
