“Have you talked to your mother lately?” I asked Michael this morning.
“I called her yesterday.”
“And did you talk to her?”
“No, she wasn’t home.”
“Did you leave a message?”
“Oh my God!” Michael said. “Someone please help me.”
“If you’d just give me a detailed answer the first time, I wouldn’t have to ask you any more questions,” I explained. “Like you could have just said, ‘I called my mother yesterday and she wasn’t home, so I left a message.'”
“Why does it matter if I left a message?” he asked.
“Because I want to know if she gets to hear your voice when she comes home, or if she’ll just have no idea that you called. I’m naturally curious.”
“A pain-in-the-ass. That’s what you naturally are,” he said with a smile.

I didn’t know you lived in my house. It’s a male/female thing haha

🙂 this one made me smile…you all are funny!
I wonder why he avoided answering your question in the first place, and then gave you a hard time about confronting his avoidance? Must have been pressing some buttons.
I guess I didn’t do the best job on writing this one! This is a pattern between the two of us: he answers a question with just the straightforward answer, and I always want more detail. I find this is a typical male/female thing. Or just happens with me a lot as I’m so darn curious. 🙂
Not at all–he said that last line with a smile on his face — we laugh about this stuff.
I don’t know Michael yet, but I pictured him saying that last sentence with his arms wrapped around you. Only people who really are bonded can poke at each other like that and come out smiling. You both have what it takes for relationship.
Indeed you are correct, Pat. We were full smiling 🙂
