Ah Tuesday. The ever dreaded day of the residual Monday fallout. Tuesday sucks more for us. Every single Time. Anyways, not the moral of the story!
So it has rolled around again and I have class until 530. FI gets home from work around four and is usually hungry by the time I get home so he usually graciously offers to make it. Super bonus, and he’s getting quite handy in the kitchen too so that’s a double bonus.
So cue today, we’re both home at lunch an he asks: “what can I make you for dinner tonight love?” It was still barely noon so I shrugged and said I’d get back to him on that.
He texts me at 230 when I get to my class and asks if I thought of anything. I have, and I tell him. I have a hankering for some mashed potatoes and teriyaki chicken. And some veggies of course.
He says “ok”
Sounds good! I’m pumped, I’m feeling this teriyaki chicken and I’m picturing it in my head to get me through my (super boring) class. I was literally day dreamin about teriyaki chicken.
So I get home at six, after stopping to grab him some beer for miserable Tuesday. Say hello, pop open the oven to have a whiff.. And the chicken is a weird colour and not saucy looking at all.
So I look up, give him a quizzically look and say “did you put teriyaki on it?”
He says… “nope, just some French fry seasoning, I was busy with the potatoes”
Dun dun dun.. Cue dropped jaw.
Me: “oh.. You could have told me that when I said what I wanted for dinner?”
Him: “oh I didn’t think it was a big deal. The fry seasoning is good”
and then he gives me that face. The I’m sorry I try so hard for you and its not good enough face. And the “I’m sorry” which is clearly an “I’m sorry you’re miffed with me”
And that is when the punches rolled.
Im kidding, no punches. I dropped it and came to vent to people who would understand my woes.
And just to clarify, I’m not actually mad. It’s just chicken. I totally get that. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t annoyed though! Why spend all that time asking me what I want if you’re not even gonna bother?
I feel better now.. I might have some of this french fry chicken now…
Men! I love him but he confuses me sometimes!
