    My mom was on the onset of her dementia - and in hind site I can say the fighting was probably helping keep my mom somewhat back in reality at the time?

    Anyway, I responded, "No dad, we don't fight, apparently I just yell at him a lot."

    And again, in hindsight - I probably did because he was just not doing what he was supposed to be doing.

    Hence, my reference to "the ex."

    And one I just made up recently:
    "Men can't read minds. And even if they could, it would not matter
    because women can always change their minds."

    My wife knows that nagging is the exact way to get me to take longer to do something. We have a rule that I do my duties on my timetable, she does hers on her timetable, and if either of us doesn't like it, we can do the others' duty ourselves.


    The Wife: "When are you going to get around to painting the nursery?"


    Me: "I know for a fact you aren't allergic to latex."




    (And, yes, Claude, that's a lot of duties.)

    If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

      My wife and I divide duties as well. If she sees I'm doing some work, she offers to help. If I see she's doing some work, I offer to help.

      In 28 years of marriage, I think she raised her voice to me a few times, And I've never yelled at her. We never argue. It's a combination of both of us hating drama....and having little to argue about.

      She never nags. But I still call her Nagatha Christie...after I saw this...



      If my wife is impatient for me to do something (like assemble vacuum cleaners), she'll start doing it herself, without saying a word. Of course, I just take over. Sometimes I'll laugh, because I know exactly what she's doing...that clever little lady.

      She really knows how to prime my pump. (opening for Riffle, Kurt, or Mark)

        ur openin' up your pump for the guys?

        What in hell d'ya expect they are gonna shove down there?

        But I figure you and Nagatha are sweet.

        Friendsa mine hangin' out only a year or so are already bickerin' like they wanna possess one another's souls.

        I figure you gotta leave well alone -- or switch partner.

        (Or jus' kill partner outright with one swiftly delivered blow.)

        But, hey, yeah -- guy I once knew had a thing for chopsticks.

        I was his Gagatha till he demanded I get my tongue pierced so we could augment the exotic cutlery with some kinda curvaceous cannonball affair.

        But I have seen those tribespeople with their dangly earlobes, an' no way was I gonna spend the resta my life with my tongue flappin' round between my boobies jus' to please a guy with no respect for frickin' noodles.

          Actually, I was expecting a joke about my wife "priming my pump"...in some sexual way that would be belittling to me.

          At least, that's what I was hoping for.

            We know it's been years since she has, so why mention it?
            I think it would be rather heartless to remind you that your a sad, broken old man.


            ... Is that what you were looking for?

              That's what I was looking for.

              Do I have to do everything?

                Did you see what you did? You finally told a little bit of the truth and you broke the
                damn warrior forum.

                Q: Are you one of the guys who does self flagellation...or is that what you pay the hookers for?

                  Right. He broke it. I've been trying to log on for 30 minutes or so and all I've got is a 503 error.

                  I tried to self flagellate as a teenager...but I'm not limber enough. My cat does it for hours at a time, and he promised to tutor me in the fine art of self flagellating.

                  Oh wait! I just found out what flagellate means. Never mind.

            The only pumping these days that you do you emits gas.
