Marriage 401, Lecture 216: Seeing the light
Me: I look so much better in this bathroom mirror.*
SH: What do you mean?
Me: The incandescent light bulbs are a lot more forgiving than those stupid bulbs you put in our bathroom.
SH: But those are environmentally responsible. It's the right thing to do.
Me: I hate them. I want you to change them.
SH: But the spirally bulbs are the right thing to do! Do you know how many watts we would be using with incandescent?
Me: Nope. And I don't care. I like the way I look this way.
SH: No. Our lightbulbs are the right thing to do.
Me: But if I liked what I saw when I looked in the mirror at my nekkid body, I would feel better about myself and that would mean more [wxyz].
SH: Oh. Well, maybe.
