Ms. Petals-53,172 / Mr.Petals-1
With a Sunday Scribbles prompt like 'tradition' just 3 weeks before Christmas, I am expecting many will write about their holiday traditions. Today I want to go off in a different direction. I want to talk about how traditionally in Most marriages WOMEN are the partners who are more often RIGHT.
Arguments happen. Debates happen. Men try to voice their side of things. They argue and make points and use obscure examples. Inevitably, the woman can prove to them that all those pointless points are just plain wrong! Women usually stand victorious and justifiably so. Think about arguments you've had with the opposite sex. Nine times out of ten, the female's point of view always make more sense!( maybe, we just have more fighting stamina? shhh!)
WEll, this week..I am going to make a confession. My fellow women may want to kick me out of all their clubs.. I feel I am breaking tried and true tradition... but..
HE may have actually WON one!
Now, mind you, I didn't LET him have this win.(YET) I ended the argument a few days ago, sticking to my guns that I was right and HE was wrong. He gave up easily with laughter, as if laughing it off allowed him to WIN. Was My argument SO foolish that he could just laugh it off without even TRying to make a point? I don't think so! I had the last word and felt traditionally triumphant! But .. alas, I discussed it today with three fellow married women, who agreed unanimously (and for some reason, while they were hysterically laughing) that I have GOT to give him this one. As difficult as it is for me to admit defeat, I guess I will have to tell him those three little, difficult to project, words.. 'You were right.'
Although... Just Maybe.. If I get enough Female voters to take my side, here on this post.. I can override those three valued yet possibly mistaken, high spirited, female votes!
Please Tell me what you honestly think.
Our(my) argument was simply this...
My husband has a cold. He has an awful cough. While he is sleeping he is coughing in my face without covering his mouth. I think he should be courteous while coughing and cover his cough. He thinks this- "it's ridiculous that you expect me to be considerate while I Am SOUND Asleep." I told him, I know I cover my mouth while sleeping! To which he added, You must also poop roses! (That was just another attempt of his to joke when I was having a discussion, his ploy to distract me, which he likes to do when he knows I am right!!)
So what do you think? do you also think I may be wrong in this scenario? Tell me! I can take it! (Not to sway the results of your votes, but today.. I have a sore throat, and feel a cough coming on.) "cough" "hack" "harrummmph" "hack"
