Me: Pasta with dinner? Good! That means wine!

Alex: Okay, but only if we go for a walk after dinner.

Me: Um, what?

Alex: We have to go for a walk after dinner.

Me: But I don’t want to.

Alex: Then we can’t have wine.

Me:

….

….

Are you sure there’s no other way I can get the wine?

Alex: Yes.

Me (glaring):

Fine.

And this is why we don’t own a sword.

Alex: Babe, someday I’m going to open a bottle of champagne with a sword.

Me: When are you going to do this?

Alex: When’s the next big occasion?

Me: Our anniversary is next month.

Alex: How am I going to get a sword?

Me: I don’t think that’s the problem in this scenario.

This is our cat Scout. He’s a beast.

FYI: Scout is the cat.

Me: Scout’s really happy you’re back because now he’ll get fed on time.

Alex: That’s the same reason you’re happy I’m back.

Me: Yeah…but… I love you more.

Alex: Debatable.

And this is why I don’t go to the doctor.

Me: I went to the doctor today, so I get McDonald’s.

Karen: Of course you do, pumpkin.

Me: Thank you for your support.

Karen: What did the doctor give you?

Me: Cipro.

Karen: No wine, then.

Me: Ridiculous. I read the entire information packet and it didn’t say anything about drinking wine!

Karen: Google antibiotics and alcohol.

Me: Google didn’t go to med school!

Vodka pancakes, anyone?

Me: Babe? We should have pancakes.

Alex: What? I didn’t hear you. Did you say we should have drinks?

Me: I said we should have pancakes.

Alex: Oh…I thought you said we should have drinks, and I was gonna jump all over that shit.

Me: Babe? We should have drinks.

Don’t touch the bubbles.

Me: Hey babe, there’s enough orange juice left for you to make a screwdriver.

Alex: Is that your way of saying hands off the champagne?

Me: Yep.

Alex: I’m on to your games.
