Hey babe, you’re up early. Go make me some breakfast.
You’re so making me breakfast when you move in.
Just so we are clear, I will never make breakfast. Are you serious or joking?
Somewhat serious. This is starting to bother me.
Me too. What the heck? Did you intend to start a fight this morning?
Absolutely not. I was just joking but if I’m tired and hungry, you won’t make your man breakfast?
It would be very rare. Are you going to be cooking dinner regularly?
I don’t cook. Don’t ruin your day this early.
And that is when I got angry. I guess maybe I had been angry already. I told him that I am sick of being the reasonable one. He pushed back. I got more angry and listed the things I have compromised on. I asked him to list where he had compromised. His response,
You haven’t done anything. What are you talking about?
It’s not about breakfast. It’s about compromise. I’m compromising. I like doing things for you because I like making you happy.
I come from a different world. When a man is hungry, his woman cooks for him. Sorry. Maybe I’m not reasonable enough for you. Maybe this won’t work.
I guess you’re right. I guess you are looking for a girl that I’m not going to be. Good luck in your search then.
I’m getting back to work.
