Airing your laundry in public.

This guy has made a list of things he and his girlfriend argue about. It's been published in book form and translated into different languages and promoted all over the interent but I never took the time to actually read it, and some of it's actually kinda funny. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Margret thinks I'm vain because... I use a mirror when I shave. During this argument in the bathroom - our fourth most popular location for arguments, it will delight and charm you to learn - Margret proved that shaving with a mirror could only be seen as outrageous narcissism by saying, 'None of the other men I've been with,' (my, but it's all I can do to stop myself hugging her when she begins sentences like that) 'None of the other men I've been with used a mirror to shave.''Ha! Difficult to check up on that, isn't it? As all the other men you've been with can now only communicate by blinking their eyes!' I said. Much later. When Margret had left the house.

I came home from work on Friday and, as I wearily opened the door into the house, Second Born, Peter, heard me entering and poked his head out of the living room. 'Hello, Papa - I've missed you,' he shouts. From within the living room Margret's voice calls out to him 'No you haven't, Peter.'

I also appreciated the story about how she hung up a feathery dreamcatcher over his bed to cure his insomnia.

generally people sort of bug me but when I hear witty, funny guys like him I am inspired to leave my house and interact, hoping to meet someone like him.

Too bad the people I meet want more than anything to invite me to a pampered chef party
Or they want me to start my own buisness selling dietary supplements.

Like an opportunity to buy a pizza stone is a party.

Obviously you've never partied with the right pizza stone.

OK, so I love that he makes his snide come back "Much later. When Margret had left the house." But she's just going to read about it online. Won't she just get mad about him saying that anyway & about him saying it behind her back? She seems the type.
