Marriage 301, Lecture 544: Hierarchy
In bed, after SH has returned from a five-day trip.
SH: Would you kiss me goodnight?
Me: You're supposed to kiss me! [Which is indeed the truth: he leans over and kisses me goodnight, then we go to sleep. I do not lean over to him. He is the Leaner/Kisser.]
SH: But I can't move.
Me: Why not?
SH: Because I'll disturb Shirley [who is curled up next to SH's head].
Me: Disturb the cat.
Me: I am not leaning just so Shirley does not have to move.
SH: But she misses me! I've been gone all week and she wants to be by me!
Me: So you think I should be inconvenienced instead of the cat?
Me: Not going to happen.
