Marriage 501, Lecture 236: Just say no


SH: I feel crummy.

Me: Is it because you haven't gotten enough sleep? [Because he went out to sing two nights in a row - work nights.]

SH: Maybe.

Me: I'm sorry sweetie.

SH: And maybe because of the two shots of whiskey I had.

Me: Ah. So it's all factors completely out of your control.

SH: Someone bought me one of them!

Me: So?

SH: I can't turn that down.

Me: Sure you can. I don't understand - you have no problems resisting peer pressure in all other areas of your life.

SH: Maybe,

Me: You never do anything just because I want you to do it.

SH: That's because you never want me to do anything fun.
