Today my husband annoyed me. A lot.
It wasn’t about anything serious – he just wouldn’t take Master Frugal for his hair cut without me. Master Frugal had a specific style in mind and apparently I’m better at explaining things to people so I needed to be the one to explain the style to the hairdresser! I had other things to do but ended up going with them and sitting around for nearly an hour while a little old man barber tried his best (and for the record, failed) to replicate a Justin Bieber style haircut on Master Frugal!
I sulked with him the whole time we were in the hairdressers (grown up I know) and I then sulked all the way to the shop where I sulked my way round the aisles. I didn’t speak to him unless he spoke to me and when he did, I spoke as little as possible – trust me, it takes a lot of energy to be sulk that much!
I’m not a complete child though and around the time that we got to the checkouts, I decided enough was enough and I gave him a quick hug and we had the following conversation:
Me – I’ve decided I forgive you.
Him – What for?
Me – For being silly about taking Master Frugal to the hairdressers. I know I was annoyed but it’s because I had lots to do this afternoon and I thought you could have done your bit and took him yourself.
Him – Oh. Were you annoyed with me? You should have said.
Me – I did! And I’ve been ignoring you for the last hour.
Him – Oh. I thought you were just tired and quiet as you’ve had a long day.
Me – Grrrrrrr
So, I spent an hour sulking and he didn’t even have the decency to notice! Then he even acknowledged that I’d had a long day!
I *may* have deleted one of his shows from Sky+ in an act of revenge 🙂
