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 cake...as long as it isn't "stupid."
Has your significant other had an opinion about things that surprised you?
