Me: *reading the newspaper this morning and excited* Hey, today is International Men’s Day!
A: *offhandedly* Yes, I saw.
Me: *still excited* Wish you a Happy International Men’s Day! So, what special plans for today?
A: *still not looking over his newspaper* What special? It’s a regular day.
Me: *coaxing* Come on! *very dramatically mimicking Monica from Friends* I will cook anything you want in here, and do anything you want in there!
(Hope you get the context. Can’t elaborate further, sorry!) 😉
A: *finally looking up and laughing* You know, today is World Toilet Day too. Why don’t you suggest something special for it too?
Me: *truly baffled* Huh? Umm, we need to care about personal hygiene and stuff?
A: *amused* Okay, so on other days we are allowed to be filthy?
Me: *slightly incensed and giving my watch-your-tongue look* What are you trying to imply? 😒
A: *sweetly* Every day is special, my dear. That’s all.
I get his point, but
won’t can’t consent to it, for sake of my bruised ego understandable reasons.
Me: *flaring nostrils* Hmpf!! Go! 👿
I try to fake offence and, bewildered, walk out of the room myself. He is laughing hard and repeating, “What did I do now?”
