Happy Weekend! It’s a good thing I found my ring last week because I was ready to separate from my husband when he asked me …
Do you think there is a website for marinade recipes?
Me: you mean a website with marinade recipes? Just to clarify that I heard him correctly.
Me: No, I have never heard of a website for recipes. My snarky side was difficult to suppress when faced with a rhetorical question.
Snarkasm is in my DNA like blue eyes and full eyebrows.
At this point, I am wondering if rhetorical questions are grounds for a separation (with joint custody of the dogs and our adult kids).
I wonder if this is the case for celebrity couples who check the box for irreconcilable differences under the reason for the divorce. Maybe there needs to be a box for rhetorical questions like the Amazon return reasons. Sometimes you need an other box.
Did the spouse just ask one too many in the course of a weekend that just sent the other spouse over the edge?
How can a man who is an amazing husband and father, generous with his time and resources, who is more intelligent today than when I met him in his fifth year of college drive me to thoughts of separation (or maybe just an office outside of the house) drive me to the brink of madness?
If only there was a way to answer his question without telling him to go to…
the world wide web.
So I did what any spouse/partner does after years together. I replied to his question with a question.
Me: I wonder if there is a store where I could buy a bug of mulch and a light switch cover?
Sidenote: My husband was given an advanced copy of this post ;0)

QUESTION: What is the silliest argument you have had with a spouse, family member, friend, or significant other?
I know which argument my sister will mention.
Retail therapy helps.I just ordered this bag for the summer. It’s on sale.
These summer sandals priced under $50 from Tuckernuck!
