Marriage 401, Lecture 413: The taxonomy of SH
SH: Hey! You're using the toothbrush I wanted!
Me: I just opened it. I haven't even used it. Take it. I don't care.
Me: Just put a new one out for me.
SH: Hey! What have you done with the toothpaste* and razor bins? [separate little bins that stack on a shelf in the bathroom closet]
Me: What do you mean?
SH: You moved those razors from the toothpaste bin to the razor bin.
Me: Because that's where they belong. Like with like, right?
SH: Not in this case.
Me: Why not?
SH: Because the razors don't fit.**
Me: Sure they do. I made them fit.
SH: Only if you slide the bin out instead of lifting it out.
Me: So? Isn't it more important to conform to your schematic of like with like? That's how you do food.
SH: This is different.
* Which also contains toothbrushes, of which we have many because SH loves couponing.
** Also because of SH's extreme couponing. We have enough razors for a tribe of yetis.
