Some fights are just waiting to happen. Yesterday evening, hubby and I were watching Medium and Ghost Whisperer. And we got into this deep, and meaningful discussion about which one was the better series.
Hubby felt compelled to share I had a lot more in common with Allison in Medium, than with Melinda from Ghost Whisperer.
‘It’s a pity you’re not a bit more like Melinda from Ghost Whisperer!’ he shared with me.
For those of you who don’t know these series: Allison is played by Patricia Arquette, and is a tired mom who wears really ugly pyjamas. Melinda, on the other hand, has long flowing hair, and is played by Jennifer Love Hewitt. She wears sexy, floaty white nightgowns, and is nót tired, nor is she a mom.
I took some deep breaths, and reminded myself: I wánt hubby to share his innermost thoughts and feelings. And perhaps I took his comparison completely the wrong way! So I asked him: ‘What exactly áre the similarities between Allison and me?’
Whereas hubby is usually stumped for answers, now they came effortlessly: ‘Allison is often cranky and tired!’
And then I demonstrated to hubby just how much like Allison I can be.
