I got yet another new cookbook in the mail today that I had forgot I ordered. It was on backorder BEFORE I told my hubby that I would not buy any more books from the cookbook club. We just got home from a long day out and I saw the box between the screen door and the door. I picked it up and when he came from parking the car I said "Honey, it followed me home, I swear I had nothing to do with it.....can I keep it?"

The smile came when he rolled his eyes and said "yes dear".

"yes, dear", siad in an exhausted or deflated manner, those can be a lovely sound!

Luvs - I would always be willing to submit to my stoopidness at times. But you are making me think my being wrong, and knowing that, is a tough place to head towards. I want my sweetie to know I was wrong, and admit her superiority, but I can't do that if her goal was to stomp all over my heart.

I just can't go there even if willing to admit she is superior, (and BTW, she is/was).

Just so everyone knows, DH was smiling when he said "yes dear"!

He KNOWS that if I get a new cookbook, some new dishes (in this case desserts) are in his very near future! The problem is we are running out of bookshelves and room to put new ones!

ok ok lets clarify ........... a smile validates "yes dear" as a term of love and playful cajoling and a dour grouchy look is a attempt to placate (blow wind up the whazoo to be technical).
