The Other Day ...

Ya know, the thing about buying a house for the first time, is that it brings out sides of the other spouse that you were clueless about up until that moment. For example:

Setting: the other day, while viewing a house for sale

Andy: "Hey, this kitchen isn't bad at all."

Aub: "Are you kidding me?! I wouldn't touch that stove, more or less cook on it!"

Andy: "Ok, so we could replace the stove [always the peacemaker]. But what do you think about the layout?"

Aub: "I hate it!"

Andy "But the _____'s house [friends who shall remain nameless] has the same kitchen, and you said you liked it."

Aub: "I lied. Couldn't you tell?!"

Andy: [Rolling his eyes and throwing his hands up in the air] Sigh.

Jessica (our realtor): [Stands wide-eyed and watches the entire encounter, clutching her keys and business cards in front of her protruding, ever-so-cute pregnant belly, quiet as a mouse] "Well, why don't we go check out the deck?"
