Marriage 801, Lecture 234: Perfectly matched
Me: The Monster Va- KOOM!
Me: You know. Va - KOOM!
SH: What are you talking about?
Me: From the "Dear Kitten" video.
Me: We just passed a car wash. There was a huge vacuum cleaner in front. With huge letters saying, "Vacuum."
SH: I didn't see it.
Me: How could you not see it?
SH: I am not reading signs on the side of the road. I am focused on driving.
Me: But you have to pay attention to your surroundings.
SH: I do. I look for threats.
Me: How can you miss HUGE LETTERS?
SH: I am not looking for that. It's like when I am in an airport.
Me: Yeah. You completely miss the woman with the blue face.
SH: She's not important.
Me: Yet when I get up to make you a tomato salad, you completely lose focus on what you are doing to try to tell me how to make the salad. Which I am doing as A FAVOR to you. Why can you lose focus when it comes to a tomato salad but not when it comes to a woman with blue tattoos all over her face?
SH: Because how a salad is made actually affects me.
Me: Do you think you would be happier married to someone more like you?
SH: Maybe. Or maybe I would be more annoyed.
Me: Or more annoying.
