    Dating Sheldon Cooper, Part 12

    | NY, USA | Dating

    (Our birthdays are both coming up.)

    Him: “You have an advantage by having your birthday first.”

    Me: “Why?”

    Him: “If I spend more than you were expecting you might feel obligated to spend more and could feel like I’m forcing you to spend more than you wanted to, but if I spend less than you were expecting I would look cheap.”

    (There is an entire episode of The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon Cooper stresses about this very thought. My boyfriend does not watch TBBT and was not referencing it. He’s just that much of a nerd.)

    I Want Your Hotcakes

    | Turin, Italy | Marriage & Partners

    (My husband and I are on the couch, surfing the net on our tablets. A friend of mine has shared on Facebook a video of a hot, shirtless guy baking and decorating cupcakes.)

    Me: “I shouldn’t watch this… It’s making me want a cupcake.”

    Husband: “I thought you were going to say it made you want the guy!”

    Me: “Of course not, I’ve already got you. Besides, I can bake my own cupcakes.”

    Pudding Up With Him

    | PA, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancé is going to have his wisdom teeth removed, so I take him grocery shopping to buy soft foods he likes. He is not happy about it.)

    Me: “How about some pudding? You like pudding.”

    Fiancé: “Oh, yeah! Okay, pudding. What kind of pudding don’t you like?”

    Me: “DON’T I like? Well, I like most kinds. Banana is pretty awful, though.”

    (He grabs three boxes of banana pudding.)

    Fiancé: “Okay, then I want banana. I don’t want you eating any of my pudding!”

    (A girl behind us starts laughing.)

    Me: *to her* “Yes, this is the man I’m marrying. Isn’t he sweet?”

    Enough To Give Pregnant Pause, Part 8

    | MD, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (I’m pregnant. My husband and I are doing several renovation projects to our house in preparation for the baby. I am usually the one who does most of the handiwork around the house, but since being pregnant, I’ve had to stand back and let others do it which I find frustrating.)

    Me: “So, we still have to paint and hang support rods. We can get to the drywall later.”

    Husband: “Yeah, I’ll handle it.”

    Me: “Don’t be silly. I can do some of it.”

    Husband: “I don’t want our kid having problems. Just go upstairs and relax.”

    Me: *offended* “Go upstairs and do what? Just sit around? Why?!”

    Husband: *teasing* “Because you’re pregnant and delicate.”

    Me: *even more offended* “I am NOT delicate!”

    Husband: *teasing harder* “Of course you are. You are a delicate flower and you need to be safe, comfortable, and out of the way.”

    Me: *ready to punch him* “WHAT?! What you REALLY mean is bored, lonely, and getting a bigger backside.”

    Husband: “Exactly! That’s exactly what I mean! I’m so glad we communicate so well!”

    Me: “…”

    Husband: *stupid grin*

    Not Being Professional About It

    | London, England, UK | Dating

    (My boyfriend and I are walking home. We find ourselves talking about Joe Dessin’s song ‘Les Champs-Elysée’ after he mishears me saying ‘Bichon Frise,’ a dog breed. It leads to this snippet:)

    Boyfriend: “The singer sounds a lot like Jean Reno. He’s the only cool Frenchman.”

    Me: *knowing he’s a fan* “Daft Punk are French.”

    Boyfriend: “…The only bad-a** Frenchman, then.”
