The Difference Between Me & My Husband

| March 28, 2015

Paul went to the bathroom at a restaurant. After he returned, I went to the bathroom. After I returned, Sequoia headed down. Paul and I then had this conversation:

Me: I hope she doesn’t walk into the urinal.
Paul: Is that what you did?
Me: Yeah…it was an awkward bathroom layout.
Paul: You didn’t read the signs?
Me: There were signs?
Paul: On the doors?
Me: Oh, yeah–I saw the Dames sign after I came out of the urinal and looked around.
Paul: I looked around before I entered the bathroom.
Me: It was an awkward bathroom situation!  I didn’t know what the hell was going on.
Paul: It was awkward. That’s why I looked around. That’s the difference between you and me: you come upon a situation, don’t know what the hell is going on, and just keep going. come upon a situation, don’t know what the hell is going on, stop, and assess the situation.

Now, what kind of blog would this be if I did that?
