What follows is a dramatization of an actual, 15-minute conversation. The boring/redundant (of which there were many) parts have been eliminated.
Me: Maybe I should get a job.
Me: Why not? You're tired of working and if I made money, there wouldn't be so much pressure on you.
SH: Because if you get a job, then I'll never have a normal life again. You'll want to get up early to exercise before work and that means you'll want to be in bed by 9:00 and we'll never see each other and I won't get enough sleep.
Me: Even if I didn't exercise before work, I would still have to be up by 6:30 to get to work by 8:00.
SH: And you'd be making noise, taking a shower and making coffee and I wouldn't be able to go back to sleep. It would be horrible. [Add lots and lots of SH DRAMA here.]
Me: Calm down. I haven't even looked at job ads, much less applied. This is not a real issue.
SH: I would never have a normal life again. And we'd have to hire a housekeeper and you wouldn't like how she cleans. This is horrible! [More DRAMA]
