Marriage 201, Lecture 441: The art of the nag

SH: Why aren't you nagging me?*

Me: I don't always nag you.

At Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.

SH: I thought you liked to nag me.

Me: No, I don't like to nag you. Sometimes I have to nag you to get you to do what needs to be done.

SH: But I'm not taking a shower.

Me: I know.

SH: But we might be late.

Me: I know.

SH: Is it because P is my friend and you don't care if we're late?***

Me: Maybe.

* To shower to meet our friend P at the restaurant where we are using our coupon that is about to expire. Lord knows it is better to spend $40 than to let a 70 cent** coupon go to waste.

** SH says that no, it cost $2.

*** P is both our friend now, but SH has known him for years and I have just met him. But yes, SH is the one who would look bad if we were late, not me.
