It is possible that I have won, definitively and for all time, the “late” argument.
As always, this would be because Husband was hilariously stupid once, and I’m never going to let him live it down. Ready?
WAIT! You’re not ready, because I just decided that we’re going to make this a guessing game! Partly because we haven’t done one of these in a while and partly because I want to stretch out the suspense of a post that was only like 200 words otherwise.
Shut up, it’s my blog.
In case you’re new, here’s how this works: I’m going to set up the story and then we’re just gonna leave it. Yup. For a few days. During that time, I want you to really think about that cliffhanger ending, and the possible reason/response that Husband is about to give/actually gave.
Okay, here’s what happened: we were getting ready to go out, and I was talking to a friend while I finished up—you know how you do. He huffed a “ready when you are!” at some point and then stormed off to sit in front of his computer while I struggled to dress with blackberry pinned to my ear. Then I was done and popped in to show off my mad skills, only to find that he was still without shoes and playing a game and generally not actually ready. Naturally I entertained myself for a while, but eventually….
ME: Honey! You said you were “ready when I was.” Now I’ve been ready and washed a wall.
That’s it, that’s all you’re getting. Husband had what he felt was an airtight defense (it was, of course, bullshit) and I want to see if you can guess what it was! Let’s see your guesses in the comments (or on twitter or whatever, I’m not here to limit your potential)
