you don't always burn dinner...

One of my favorite parts about having fiance in Provo is that we can enjoy Sunday evenings together. We can have Sunday dinner together and either read our own book or read one together. This Sunday we decided to read together a great book called "First Comes Love."

The scene was perfect. Fiance sitting in the corner of the couch and me nestled into him with my feet up. So nice. I was the designated reader and was reading the chapter on Communication. There was a particular part that was talking about how some spouses confide more in their friends then they do their spouses. At this point I made my own commentary and said...

Me: I promise that I will never do that.

Fiance: [chuckles]

Me: Why are you laughing?

Fiance: You don't always burn dinner.

Me: WHAT?? What are you talking about?

Fiance: [Trying to say something but I can't hear him because I am too busy accusing]

Me: You fell asleep! You weren't even listening! I was reading to myself. Here I am making a promise to you and you are sleeping. [Note: I am not really angry just pretending I am. I like to mess with him occasionally]

Fiance: No! I wasn't I promise. I just didn't hear what you said.

Me: Sure. Well go back to sleep so that I don't have to read out loud anymore...

Fiance: No! I am listening! Go ahead.

Me: [under my breath] Incredible. [Continue reading]

Can I just point out how incredibly ironic it was that we were reading about communication. Our communication failed miserably WHILE reading about good communication. To fiance's credit I really do believe that he wasn't sleeping. He was in that half awake and half asleep stage. When you are in that stage things sound weird. When your fiance is demanding why you are laughing and you are thinking it makes complete sense to be laughing you tend to panic and say things that you probably wouldn't have in the first place. I thought that this was probably one of the funniest things because fiance doesn't EVER do this. He is usually very attentive. It was fun to catch him not completely paying attention.

Oh and don't even get me started on the fact that his chosen words were "You don't ALWAYS burn dinner." Too funny. I love that boy so much!

Chappy was trying to communicate to you by telling you that you only burn dinner most of the time. Now he doesn't have to call Brent and tell him you burn it all the time, he can just tell you. Great communication Chap.
