Why Guys Can't Win

Last Thursday, I rushed home from work in order to drive with MHW to a family wedding in Boro Bark, Ir Hakodesh. She was still dressed in regular clothes, having just finished giving The Toddler a bath.

Stupid Me (SM) said, "You're not ready."

MHW: "I'm almost ready. I have my makeup on. I just have to put on my dress."

SM: "Oh, sorry, I didn't notice."

MHW. "You think I don't have enough makeup on?"

SM: "No, I just hadn't noticed. You have plenty of makeup on."

MHW: "You think I have too much makeup on?"

I give up.

    SM: 'Oh, sorry, I didn't notice.'"

    That's where you lost. ;-) You should have just said, "You look beautiful." Can't ever go wrong with that one...I don't think...

    Understood...that's why I refer to myself as SM.

    But what I meant was "I didn't notice you had makeup on because you were wearing a regular skirt and blouse and a teichel rather than your sheital so I didn't realize that you were almost ready to go, so I didn't llok closely enough to see that your makeup was on just perfectly......."

    I thought Monsey was Ir Hakodesh - at least that's what people kept telling me for the 4 long years we lived there :-)

    You can't win. You should know that by now. Just smile and nod. :-)
