View Full Version : On Being Right!

A while back as I set reading the news and sipping my coffee, chatting with My Dearest One as she puttered about making my breakfast, I couldn't help but notice that she stopped more often than necessary, often made two trips where one would suffice and only RARELY carried something both ways.....

As my great pile of animal carcase and bird berries arrived, and while she was bustling about getting her own plate ready, in case she got to sit down before I was done.... I decided the time was right to point out some of these insufficiencies. Kindly, benevolently in a spirit of love and caring.

"Honey", I said, "do you realize that you could be sitting here with me if you were just more efficient??"

"Really", she asked sweetly, "how so?" (I DO so love her so, the dear.)

Patiently I explained how if she grabbed the milk while she was putting away the eggs she wouldn't have to make the extra trip...... and if she'd just set the coffee pot within my reach she wouldn't have to keep running to fill my cup, and how, when she rushed over to butter my biscuit or toast, she could just leave the butter tub out on the counter..... in case I wanted another slice....

Just obvious stuff. Logical rules of order that we men apply each and every day in the workplace....

It was a nice discussion, and after an hour or two of polite interplay I got her to admit that "YES, I was right."

And that I'd been right all along.

And every day since I see again, I WAS RIGHT.....as I whip thru making my breakfast in 1/3 the time she used to.

Ahhh well..... back to work. Back down to the shop with a full tummy. (From My Beautiful BeLoverly with whom I DID NOT have this discussion :))


jus' feelin' good. sorry to bother y'all's

Most men would know better than have that conversation. Thank you and I love you dear is usually the correct answer.

I understand extra moves and time utilization. My wife and I both cook but when the meal is ready to serve the kitchen looks really different. I put things away or in the dishwasher while I'm cooking. My lovely wife doesn't so when she is done the kitchen can be a mess. We both know how it is, but if I take exception to her methods I'll end up cooking more.

My wife makes a great breakfast, so I get up first and make the coffee. I then keep my mouth shut, do the dishes and clean the kitchen counter....after breakfast.
