Monday Vent - Candy for Lunch
It was a Sunday, and after church, I had a meeting to attend. My husband was going to run to the hardware store and then take our boys out to lunch. Sounded like a good plan to me. I arrived home a few hours later to be pounced on by my boys who were "starving". When I asked my husband what had happened, he explained that at the hardware store the boys saw some candy that they wanted. So, he gave them the choice of getting candy or going out to lunch. Guess which one they chose? That would have been fine if he also gave them some REAL food also. When I questioned him further he replied, "what do you want from me, they wanted the candy!" This goes back to other blogs we have written when seemingly normal, intelligent, independently functioning men do really STUPID things and then wonder why we're irritated.
Now it's your turn. Can you relate?
