#SoCS Feb. 3/18 – In Other Words


“You are the most irritating person I know,” she said over the coffee steaming under her imperious nose. “And that shirt, why?” she continued screwing up her face in obvious disgust.

“What wrong with my shirt? It’s clean and I ironed it specially just for you.”

“Its what is so irritating about you. You think and clean and ironed is all you have to think about. What about the clash of colours, blue shirt and red pants?”

“These are my favourite pants.”

“Well that says it all or should I say what you always say. And you never shave properly, there’s a small piece in your chin you leave dangling and if you have deodorant on its not working for you.”

“So I stink?”

“Yes, among so much I find irritating about you.”

“In other words I’m a pain in the arse?”

“You said it. Now pass me the sugar and don’t spill it over me like you did the last time.”

  1. Michael ….. I cannot help but notice a certain flavour running through your posts. Is there some sort of domestic power struggle occurring in the household?

  2. Forestwood says:

    Oh she doesn’t sound like a very happy person.

  3. Fandango says:

    Typical married couple?

  4. Lyn says:

    Pick, bite, snap, snarl. Why do people insist on treating each other like that. So sad.
