This conversation with Vince was hilarious.
Last night after dinner we were talking and I sometimes walk a fine line with Vince because I say what I think and sometimes he takes it totally wrong so I had rehearsed this conversation several times in my head.
Me: We need to talk about something. You’re probably not going to like it but this has become a problem for me.
He’s already looking at me like . . what crazy idea do you have now. I’m sure in that few seconds he had visions of me wanting to buy a farm or have Chad, Nicole and Addie move in with us to save on expenses (because last night we watched a video about people doing that).
Me: I cannot keep going somewhere every day. I’m spending so much time following you around in stores, walking when my feet hurt, or sitting in the car while you shop. I just want to stay home. I came up with this plan. I will go out with you once every two weeks but we have to plan it ahead and not just in the middle of the day when I’m about to start cooking, you tell me you want me to go to town with you. I want us to discuss the places we’re going to go . . all of them . . before we leave home. I want us to talk about where we’re going to eat if eating out is part of the plan. I would prefer that we eat out no more than once a month.
Vince: Why do we have to go out every two weeks?
Vince: Why don’t we say once a month?
By now, I’m laughing because he was serious. He wasn’t joking.
Me: YOU can go to town once a month?
Vince: We don’t need anything. We have everything here we need.
Me: How about we leave it at once every two weeks if needed, but the goal is once a month?
Vince: Sounds good to me.
Me: Do you want to start this new plan tomorrow?
Vince: I’ll have to check the Black Friday sales before I can commit.
This is going to be interesting.
