Turnabout is Bitchcraft

Pursuant to my conversation with The Mister yesterday during the water crisis

He phoned me to vent about work today.

I let him vent. I said all the wonderful things people say when life is unjust.
You must understand, he works in the world of math, and I have no idea what he was going on about, but he sounded like he was in a terrible way, so it doesn’t really matter about segues and rates and systems, just matters that I listen and care. He doesn’t complain about work very often, so it must have been awful.

I am a very loving wife. Such an excellent friend. And OMG I am such a bitch.

For about fifteen minutes, he went on and on and I supported his rant.

And then, when I thought he’d calmed down and run out of steam, I said, “Well, I just don’t know what else to say. I suppose were I you, I’d ask ‘What do you want from me?!?’ or ‘What do you want me to do about it?!?’ but I’m me, so I won’t do that.”

Then we laughed and laughed!


Good times, y’all! Good times!

    If you would have asked I would have said,”Not a goddamn thing! Just ranting so I don’t tell a motherfucker what I really think!” There should be people on their knees every night I rant to you to cool down.

    It’s sounds very much like you and the Mister have the same kind of relationship as my husband and I do….wonderful lesson in love…:)

    You are a good wife. A supportive ear followed by a jab of sarcasm. That’s why our men love us, right? šŸ™‚

    “Bitchcraft” <— how have I never thought of this? I'm pretty sure you and I attended the same school of Bitchcraft and Bastardry.

    It’s a good thing when a relationship is strong enough to stand up to the truth.
