“Oh, let’s watch that one!”

“Yuck. I hate romcoms. Chick flicks are a bore.”

“I love them. They always make me feel good and have a happy ending.”

“They’re so silly. Let’s watch something with some action. How about this one?”

“Nothing happens in that one except shooting people and then walking away as if nothing happened.”

“Yeah. That’s cool.”

“You can’t enjoy love and I can’t enjoy murder. Have I got that right?”


“You can go home now.”

  1. We can’t decide on anything!!! You always disagree, nothing I say works for you and I am sick of trying!
    All I said was make a decision darling and be reasonable. The choice to stay in Ireland or go to the states is not that hard.
    Well it is for me….my life is here. All I know is life in Ireland. I am not sure what will happen in the States. What am I to do?
    How about you go and do the work that you need to do and I stay here.
    I will not leave you my sweet one, won’t you reconsider?
    No, it is final you must accept that I want to stay here and you can go. We will visit one another as we find time.

  2. I divided the chocolate bar, but the pieces were not even. He took the largest of the two pieces.
    “You took the biggest one,” I said.
    “Really?” He seemed surprised.
    “Yes, you generally do. Have you not noticed that?”
    He thought for a minute. “I don’t think I do, I mean, I don’t mean to.”
    I know the reason. It is because he was a twin, and always competed with his sister when he was a child.
    Some habits die hard. And some never die.
    A few days later, we shared some fried chicken, He looked at me, then carefully chose the smaller piece.
    It seems you can teach an old dog new tricks.
    But I bet that doesn’t apply to chocolate.
