Marriage 201, Lecture 215: For better or for baking

Et voila

I am making rum pecan cinnamon rolls, the exact same recipe I made last Christmas that SH loved loved loved. EXACT SAME RECIPE except less sugar and no honey as we discussed last night and which SH approved because we agreed that they were a little too sweet and he does not like honey. He also wanted me to leave out the nuts, which was completely non-negotiable. Nuts can be removed as the eater eats.

SH: Stop! What are you doing?

Me: Go back and read the paper.

SH: But you're using mint dental floss to cut those!

Me: Yep. Do you have any plain?

SH: No.

Me: OK then.

SH: Wait!

Me: What?

SH: The ones on the end are much smaller than the ones in the middle. They need to be re-done.

Me: No. They don't. I'm not a pastry chef. Maybe you should go back and finish reading the paper.

SH: But they won't match.

Me: I think it will be OK.

Perhaps you should have used a tape measure...

He meant they weren't thick enough. They were all about the same width. He is a total micromanager. I prefer to work alone.

It is "puh CAHN", right? Not "PEE-can" or anything wrong like that?

Laura, of course it is the proper pronunciation. Of course it is.
