Priorities

(In the car)
Me: I'm in a bad mood. And I'm feeling kind of sad.
Mr. Darling: How can I help?
Me: Will you give me a foot massage when we get home?
Mr. Darling: Yes.

(Back at the house)
Mr. Darling: Let's go over these forms tonight.
Me: What forms are they?
Mr. Darling: They're for our health insurance.
Me: What about my foot massage?
Mr. Darling: Let's do the forms first, then I'll give you a massage.
Me: Can I have the massage first?
Mr. Darling: Which do you want more: health insurance or a foot massage?
Me: Right now? A foot massage.

Excellent choice! Glad to know that you've got your priorities straightened out :-)

LOL did he comply?

Katherine said...

At least he was willing, regardless of which order things were done in. My husband would probably bring up forms in the hope that I would forget about the foot rub.

I did a 'random conversation' blog too, check it out if you get a chance. : )

Jasmine said...

Haha. Amazing. :)

Ladybird said...

One...I have to say that I absolutely LOVE your blog and the premise under which it is written. Your priorities were completely in order...massage first everything else later! =)

Miss E said...

Too funny! Did you get your massage? Health ins forms can always wait for a foot massage!

Jeff said...

Does your health insurance cover foot massages, or is that a perk?

Carrie said...

I'm hoping you really did the the foot massage first. :)

Mrs. Newlywed said...

HAHA.

I completely understand!

SkylersDad said...

Did he get way down between the toes?

Auishtha said...

My beau will definitely give me the foot massage. :)

Amy said...

HAHA i would have made the same choice!

Ali said...

Well of course!

Lynette said...

Men. Where are THEIR priorities? Hope you got the foot massage.

Steffunny said...

Men can fill out forms??? In my house I have to do things like that.

Joanie M said...

Now THIS is a lady with her priorities in order!

The only problem with this plan is that those health insurance forms? Will make you need another massage. Not. Fun.

Remember when I said you should get a cool button for us to grab for Totally Awkward Tuesday? I have no idea how to go about creating one but I bet there is someone really creative out there who would do it for you. Why not post a request for help?

My aunt has to have a foot massage every night from her hubby. It's always first priority.

Megan said...

LOL Too funny!!

I don't think my hubby's ever given me a foot massage, so you've got a good one there!
