Marriage 201, Lecture 451: A speedy trial

SH: Are you going to cut the brownies now?

Me: No.

SH: To keep you from eating them?

Me: Yes.

SH: Are you going to wait until just before they get here?

Me: Yes.

SH: That won't keep me from cutting out a corner.

Me: Please don't.

SH: Because it will dry?

Me: No.

SH: Then why?

Me: Because it will create an open edge.

SH: And you won't be able to resist?

Me: Yes.

SH: But I want a brownie now!

Me: You can have one later.

SH: A brownie delayed is a brownie denied.

Me: No it's not. Eat a cookie instead.

Funny. Isn't it charming how our husbands understand us no matter how illogical our reasoning is...or no matter how illogical it appears to them?
