Are you good with the quick come back, as in when your other half says something like what annoys me about you is that you never clean the bench off (that is Tim to me) can you think of something to say nice and quick about what they do to annoy you.
Usually I don't but only last night I did, Tim complained about how when I take my Byetta injection I sometimes leave it sitting on the bench and not move it and quick as a flash I told him that I am annoyed how he doesn't put the toaster sandwich maker away, this was because he had used it earlier and it was still sitting on the bench and you know what Tim did he just smiled and walked away.
Generally I suck with the quick come back and have to think about what he said before the comeback comes to me. I am like my mother is this regard she rarely thinks of a come back for dad when he complains about something.
Only the other day dad told mum she was fat and that was why she was having so much pain in her leg and back and she couldn't think of anything to say other than maybe, she than to little Denni into the bedroom with her while she got dressed and just stayed in the room for a while as she was upset and didn't want to go and see dad again.
Yes she knows the reason he is being so mean and picky at the moment is because that is how Prednisone makes him but still it hurt, yes mum has put on a bit of weight but she is not that fat, hell she is not as fat as me...............with all the stress of her life lately it is not surprise that she has gained a bit of weight this year but still dad shouldn't have said anything about it.
What gets me is when someone says to a person do you know you have gotten fat, well yes they know everyone knows when their weight changes we don't need other people telling us we are now fat.
When Tim says something to me about my weight I will usually tell him I have a mirror and I know what I look like. I will also point out that yes I have gone up three sizes in clothes since we first met but he has in fact gone up 6 sizes when I meet Tim he took a size 77 in pants/jeans and now he takes a 92 when we met I took a size 14-16 in jeans I know take a 18-20 in jeans.
When I remind Tim about that he will drop the topic it took me a long time to know what to say to Tim to stop him saying things that would upset me about my weight, I know he loves me but at times he can be insensitive.
