In a survey I’m way too lazy to look up myself, it is reported (allegedly) that most couples fight about finances and temperature control, which I find interesting since Bryan and I have the tendency to bicker the most about really stupid things like what we’re having for dinner. In a recent enlightening conversation with a girlfriend, she said that she made an executive decision to grab Chinese food for dinner one night, which relieved the stress of having to go back and forth about who wants what.
That is what I like to call one smart cookie.
Of course, like any other old married (even though we’re not yet married, ahem) couple, Bryan and I bicker about other things, too. Like when it’s my turn to pay for groceries and he walks the aisles like a drunk college kid and adds munchies and $6 gourmet artisanal coffee drinks to the cart.
Also when I asked Bryan for his thoughts on things we argue about the most, his response was “being annoying, you moving my stuff, cleaning…” and then I zoned out because who puts “being annoying” as #1?
But I digress.
Below you’ll find a sampling of some of the bicker fests we’ve had in recent weeks.
Me: Are you hungry?
Bryan: I can eat.
Me: So like, what are you in the mood for?
Bryan: I dunno.
Me: [rummages through the fridge and rattles off list of possible choices]
Bryan: [sighs loudly, because the weight of the world rests on his shoulders] I don’t know, Char… Nothing is jumping out at me.
Me: strangles Bryan to death.
Bryan: Oh, my god, Charlotte. Those shoes.
Me: What’s wrong with them? You told me you to wear these over the other ones!
Bryan: That was before we left the house and you started clomping next to me. It’s like walking next to a Clydesdale.
Me: Did you [fill in the blank]?
Bryan: What? NO! You always [fill in the blank]. I thought you did it! <—recurring argument, sadly
Bryan: Want to watch something?
Me: Sure. What do we have saved?
Bryan: This show on knife building that looks awesome, the Nerd Olympics, How it’s Made: the Quinoa Edition, Pawn Stars…
Me: Do we have any housewives episodes? Those are always fun.
