Pole Troll

| Westminster, MD, USA | Related | October 21, 2012

(Given our passions for gaming and fantasy, my husband and I always joked about how we would raise über-geek kids. I see my 3-year-old daughter swinging around a flexible pole from a play tent.)

Me: “Don’t swing that around; you’ll break something.”

Daughter: “But, I’m practicing!”

Me: “Not with that, you aren’t. You’re too little to be playing with that.”

(My daughter stamps her foot and puts her hands on her hips.)

Daughter: “I am too ready!”

(I take the pole away from her, and turn to put it away. As I turn my back to her, she crosses her arms and glares at me.)

Daughter: “…troll.”

He Can’t Face The Music

| VA, USA | Romantic | October 21, 2012

(My boyfriend is a pretty tough-looking guy, long hair, brawny, tattooed arms, the works, even though I know he’s a secret softie. After endless begging, I finally convince him to watch my favorite movie, ‘Moulin Rouge’, with me. I can tell from the beginning he’s unimpressed. Frequent yawns, rubbing his eyes, slouching down further and further on the couch, until finally his head begins to dip to his chest.)

Me: “I can tell you’re not into this, babe. Let’s watch something else.”

Boyfriend: *in a thick, tear-choked voice* “No, this is fine. I mean, I already know how it’s going to end, I just… want to see… how it ends.”

(I made sure to act like I was so absorbed in the ending, that I didn’t notice the tears streaming down his cheeks.)
