Did your mom ever tell you that little tidbit of wisdom when you were younger? If so, did it make any sense to you at the time?
Iâ€™ll admit, Iâ€™ve never been the best at this. I typically run head long into battle (i.e., minor arguments) without much thought of overall war strategy or just consequences in general. So when I think twice before, and decide against, charging forward into what most certainly will be a bloody mess â€¦ well, I have to pat myself on the back.
Case in point: yesterday, the following exchange occurred between hubs and me. And Iâ€™m certain that it had all the makings of a powder keg. All I had to do was light it.
Hubs: â€œPut your shoulders back.â€
Hubs: â€œStand straight.â€
Me: *complying, though looking incredulous*
Hubs: â€œSee? When you do that, you go up a point.â€
Me: *stares at him*
Hubs: â€œYou know, on a scale of 1 to 10? You go up a point when you stand straight.â€
Me: *still staring*
Hubs: â€œJust sayinâ€™.â€
Me: *walking away*
Not only did I not ask at what points I started out/ended up, but I just didnâ€™t say anything at all. A Perfect 10 or not, clearly the man does not know how lucky he is.
