Going To Break Something Else In A Minute…

, , , | Romantic | March 29, 2018

(My wife and I are together after she’s spent the day with her close friend. Suddenly, her voice becomes sad.)

Wife: “Babe… Ugh… I stood on [Friend]’s scale today.”

(I mistake the sadness in her voice and think something bad must have happened to occasion this sadness. Desperately thinking what it might be, I latch onto the phrase “stood on” and take it to mean “accidentally stepped on.”)

Me: “Oh, did you break it?”

(She was speechless, and I came to the horrifying realization of what I’d just said. Cue several minutes of her laughing her head off while I desperately apologized repeatedly.)
