“How do I look? Cute?” asked the Charming and Beautiful Susan.
“Of course. You’re the cutest,” I said.
“Yes. I’m lying. I and everyone else I know really thinks you’re ugly but we’re all afraid to tell you.” I said maybe with a slight hint of sarcasm.
I never know the right answer. Should I let these comments go and just realize that this is the way women must communicate with their adoring husbands? Or should I say something every once in a while? Agreeing with a woman sarcastically makes the point but it doesn’t score any points for the home team. But maybe the home team needs to sacrifice.
I definitely have a reputation for knowing just the right thing to say to women.
How’s your Thanksgiving shaping up?
