I just have to vent…
I am married to a very mild mannered, easygoing, laid back guy. Seriously, nothing bothers this man. He’s just a genuinely happy guy. Even when he’s “mad” he still maintains a sense of humor about it. Because he’s so mild mannered, easygoing, and laid back, I usually win our arguments.
But recently, I discovered that I actually have not been winning the arguments. He has. We’ll start (OK, I’ll start) an argument, and he’ll participate for a little while, then he’ll sit back and say “you’re right.” It kind of throws me off my momentum and I’ll have to ask him to repeat himself. Then he’ll say: “I can never top you. Really, babe. You are capable of bringing life into this world. How could I ever top or even wish to top or win out over someone capable of giving me one of the greatest gifts in the world… a child?”
Bastard. It stops me in my tracks every time and I used to be all cocky thinking that I won the argument. But I didn’t. He did. He stops the fighting, gets me all warm and fuzzy towards him, and it’s over. And he knows it, the manipulative cretin. I hate him and his unfair fighting.
