When The Words Arrived Late…

I am quite sure that I am just one out of the billions of women who started a good argument thread with yours sincerely darling husband or partner, believing that you had all your words lined in a row, only to find yourself perplexed after a bit into the lopsided argument and at a loss for a good parting shot to drive home your thoughts.

Fast forward two days later, while on the hot stove turning the soup, a phrase just pops into your head and you think to yourself.

Ah Ha! That’s it! I should have said that line as my nailing shot.

That would surely make him realize how much thought I gave to the matter.

You traipse to the Living room to deliver your parting shot which is two days late and your husband who is flipping the sports channel thinks you are a lunatic, because for all intents and purpose, he has blissfully forgotten what it was you were talking about ­čÖé
