I know you’ve had them. You know, those dumb arguments with your spouse about trivial things that you would be embarrassed to even mention to anyone else? The arguments that you can’t even remember how they got started? Yeah.
So here’s ours from this morning:
Hubby: [Looking at the 2 family-sized cans of baked beans on the counter.] Who bought VEGETARIAN baked beans??? (said with much disgust)
Me: I did.
Me: They were for the BBQ. I figured we’d better get vegetarian ones since not everyone eats the ones with CHUNKS OF PORK in them (said with much disgust)
Hubby: It’s OUR BBQ. The guests need to eat what WE eat.
Me: Not true. We should be catering to our guests. After all, we invited them. Why are we even talking about this? What’s the big deal?
Hubby: It’s a big deal because now we have 2 cans of VEGETARIAN BEANS sitting here. Who’s going to eat these? You don’t even EAT baked beans!!
Me: *Blank stare*
Hubby: Next time, get the regular beans.
Me: Next time, why don’t you do the grocery shopping.
*Stare-down Standoff Ensues*
And there you have it. A lovely Wednesday morning, ruined by an innocent purchase of canned goods.
Guess what’s NOT for dinner!
