Phrasing Versus Timing

| Romantic | December 14, 2013

(I have just used my flatmate’s eye make-up remover pads to remove the significant amount of eyeliner and mascara I have worn today. It is making my eyes hurt and water. I am trying to get comfortable in bed and ignore the pain. My boyfriend is getting undressed to climb into bed for the night.)

Me: “Argh! My eyes! They burn!”

(My boyfriend looks up with slight insecurity and confusion.)

Me: “I… probably could have picked a better moment to say that.”
