Marriage is about Compromise

"I want a pedicure," I tell the DNB. "I've been wanting one for two weeks. But we're poor, so I'm going to have to do it at home."

"Good idea," he says, not listening.

"OH! How about YOU give me a pedicure? Then it'll FEEL all fancy, like I'm getting it done for real!" I am excited by my idea.

"Yeah, no," he says.

"Ok, how about I NOT henna the word 'loser' across your forehead while you're sleeping, and in exchange, you give me a pedicure," I offer generously.

"That might be a fair trade," he replies, suddenly paying attention.
