Let's take a little divergence from my usual UFO alien meets bigfoot in a bar routine. I just want to share a piece of my day with you. I usually get up at 4 am and leave for the gym a little after 5. My wife sometimes gets up at 5 or 6 am. This morning, she wakes up at 5 am. Here is part of our morning conversation:
Me: Good Morning
Me: Whats wrong?
Wife: I don't know
Me: I forgot to tell you, I have tomorrow off from work
Wife: Darn! Well, don't take this wrong!
Me: How can I possibly take that wrong?
Wife: Well, you're going to mess up my whole day.
Me: Again, how can I possibly take that wrong?
Me: I'm planning on sleeping in.
Wife: Oh no you're not. If I have to get up at 5, then you're going to get up!
Me: I'm sorry I'm messing up your plans, but I had to get up early during the weekend. I need to catch up on my sleep.
Wife: So, I never get to sleep in!
Me: You wake up later than me almost everyday, and you get to take naps during the day! I don't think my boss would take it very well if I took a nap in the middle of the day. By the way, how did this conversation become about you? It is about ME sleeping in on my day off!
Wife: EVERYTHING is about ME! The sooner you learn this, the better it will be for you.
So Ranters, do you think I was totally off base here? I think this could be a Carly Simon song! You know the one. No, not "Nobody does it better"! ... Definitely not "Anticipation"!
Oh well, until later Ranters!
