Marriage 301, Lecture 638: Goose/gander/sauce

SH: Are you going to buy another purse?

Me: Maybe. Are you going to buy more wine?

SH: Wine is different. It's a consumable.

Me: So are purses.

SH: They are not! I don't know why you would need more than a summer purse and a winter purse.

Me: I don't know why you would want more than a summer watch and a winter watch. [Have I not mentioned SH's vast watch collection? He has a couple dozen, although he has stopped accumulating them since we got married and acquired a mortgage and cats.]

SH: A watch has value even when it's not being worn! And my watches are cool!

Me: So are my purses.
