That part about the missus calling few mins after leaving the house is so true. Drives me nuts. Usually it's nothing of true importance, but I'll just play along anyway.
When I'm watching a TV show or reading something highly interesting (to me), she casually blurts out stuff about new shoes or skirt or something similar every few minutes, which has absolutely no meaning to me. I mean, how hard can it be to just stay quiet for an hour?
Don't get me wrong, I love her very much, but if it weren't for her line of work (onboard a cruise ship) that keeps her away from home one week at a time, we would probably not be together. If we ever end up getting a divorce, I will most likely be staying single.
