So, as an ex-reporter and breaking my own rule about obsessiveness, here's the issue:
My wife took a nap this afternoon. She got up and found me watching the end of a movie I recorded. I'm not going to tell you the name of the movie, however, it's a silly one, but one I enjoy. Wife awakes from her nap and said, "I wanted to watch that movie." I responded, "I've been watching it for three days (I watch stuff I've recorded in part then continue. It's not unusual for me to take a couple, or three days to watch something, because most everything I've recorded I've seen before – don't ask.) I responded "Oh, okay, want to watch it now? It's one I could watch again, immediately."
And, again, a fight, well she fought: "You know I wanted to watch that (I didn't)…I can't watch it for a couple of weeks…(I don't care, I'd watch it again now), etc.
Okay, I accede to EVERYTHING she says, yet she continues to fight. She has no intellectual capacity or range for discussion. The woman has to be "right" all the time…loves to fight…"My life shouldn't'have turned out this way," is what she says and what she feels. She gives "dumb blondes" a bad name.
