The Hubby and I are sitting alone in the living room the other day watching TV.
I don't even remember what we were watching. I don't really watch much TV. Hubby always has control over the remote. I'd rather read a book or some blogs or something.
This commercial came on for some toilet paper roll thingie. It spins on the wall so you can instantly change it so the flap of toilet paper is hanging either "over" or "under".
The Hubby gets my attention "hey look at this" just before they show it.
Hubby says "Did you see that?!"
I say "Yes....that is brilliant."
He says "We would never fight over how the toilet paper hangs again!"
I say "When have we ever fought over that?"
He says "I don't know. Which way do you like it?" (he should know this because I'm the ONLY one that ever puts a new roll on. I always find it sitting on top of an empty roll. I've asked him several times how come he can be in there forever and not just put a new roll on...)
I say "We've been married twenty years and you don't know? I like it to hang over the top."
(I also confess that in the past I've gone to peoples houses and changed it to the way I like it...you know, maybe they've never tired it that way and then when they see what they are missing out on they will be like "wow! this way is so much better" and then I will have made difference in the world....come on, don't tell me you've never done this.)
He says "Hmmm, I like it to hang over the top too! Maybe that's why we get along so well and have been married this long."
Yeah. I'm sure that's it.
Ace doesn't seem to have a preference.
I'm pretty sure it has more to do with the fact that I never ask for the TV remote.
