Earlier this morning, as The Husband walked past me while I was here at my usual perch at the end of the kitchen counter, he and I had the following conversation.
Me: "I want to show you something" (pause, while I pull up the picture on Pinterest)
Me: "Do you like it"" (showing him this picture of an Oriental rug)
Him: "I like it. It's interesting."
Me: "Good, because it's ours."
Him: "It is?"
Me: "Yes, it is. I saw it on the shop's site, and emailed them to ask if it was still available. They sent a PayPal invoice, and now we own it."
Him: "I was going to ask what you bought with the PayPal account. (He pays the bills and keeps a close eye on the bank account.)
Me: "Now you don't have to ask."
Him: "Where are you going to put your new rug?"
Me: "I'm not sure yet. I'll figure that out when I pick it up."
Him: (sighs, and walks back into his office, shaking his head.)
