I Never Can Predict...

I never can predict what it is Mr. Magic will have an opinion about or not.

Me: Hey honey, do you care what kind of cake topper we get?

Mr. M: What?

Me: [exasperated, because I hate to repeat myself] I said, do you care what kind of cake topper we get?

Mr. M: Well yeah, I don't want something stupid.

Me: OK, so do you want, like, a mini us on there?

Mr. M: No, something else.

Me: OK, what about [types "bunting wedding cake topper" into search engine] this?

Mr. M: What is that? Is that even a cake? I don't like that.

Me: OK, what about this then. [pulls up original idea I was lusting after] They can make them look just like us!!!

Mr. M: Sure, that's fine.

Me: It's kinda expensive though.....

Mr. M: How much?

Me: [really quietly] like, one hundred and seventy five dollars

Mr. M: Seventy five dollars?

Me: [exasperated because I hate repeating myself] NO, ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS.

Mr. M: [very matter of fact like] That is outrageous.

Me: It's one of a kind! It's custom made! It's handcrafted! It will look JUST LIKE US!

This was actually a humorous conversation, to me, and I wasn't really all that exasperated, although I do really, really dislike repeating myself. But isn't it funny what our significant others choose to care about? I really can never, ever tell what will make his list, and truthfully, I don't think he really cares what is on our long as it isn't "stupid."

Has your significant other had an opinion about things that surprised you?

  1. Bahaha! That sounds like one of the many wedding-related convos the Brooches shared! I was always amazed by Mr. B's opinions, too!! I love both options here! Definitely wish we would have had something cute like the custom look alike toppers!!
