Marriage 401, Lecture 198: Not Good enough
SH: Wait. I need to micromanage the laundry.
SH: I need those shirts for my trip tomorrow.
Me: Fine. Whatever.
After I have removed shirt #1 from the dryer, where it has tumbled for about five minutes, long enough to get the wrinkles out but not long enough to dry it, put it on a Good Hanger, pulled and smoothed the placket, the cuffs, the seams and the collar, and hung it on the gas line.
Me: Did I do it right?
Me: What's wrong with it? [Implied: You are a crazy person!]
SH: That's a really good shirt. It should go on a good hanger.
Me: That is a Good Hanger.
SH: It's not a Really Good Hanger.
SH: It's the right kind, but it's not very good. There are better Good Hangers.
Me: You never told me there were grades within the Good Hanger category.
SH: There are.
