Re: Things your spouse/sig other do that annoy you
OK, so I'll tell one tale out of school.
My wife thinks a lot. She's always 2-3-4 steps ahead and is planning for tomorrow, the weekend, some party 3 months out, and probably Easter next spring. Honest to God, she's already started making Christmas lists for next year.
Her mind is always churning. The issue I have is that she thinks and thinks and thinks and then starts talking. The problem is, she's starts talking at about step 14 and doesn't realize that I haven't heard her thinking and steps 1-13.
So she's at step 14 and I'm frantically trying to pick up clues as to what the hell it is she's talking about and thinking back on recent conversations and trying to piece together the whole picture.
By and large, I do pretty well and most times, I can ferret out what it is she's been thinking and where the conversation is going. However, every so often, I say "OK, I've tried, but I have no idea what you're talking about, can you fill me in please?".
And then I get the eye roll and the "we talked about this 2 weeks ago Thursday, don't you remember?" and I sigh and nod and make the rolling "can we please just get on with this" motion with my hand.
I mostly don't mind this, but the problem is that she rarely enjoys the moment we're in and the here-and-now and usually has this distracted look on her face because she's not all here. And I'm the opposite. I'm a revel-in-the-moment and enjoy today because you don't know what will happen tomorrow kind of guy.
Pay attention to the open sky
