As absolutely amazing as Mr. W is, sometimes he says really, really stupid things. He has a female friend coming to visit, and needless to say, I am having a bit of an issue with the entire situation. Granted, they have been friends for a long, long time and this visit was planned way before I ever came into his picture, I am having a little bit of trouble wrapping my head around the fact that she will be staying with him for the next two months. Either way, one of my biggest insecurities about it all is that this woman may be prettier then I am. So this weekend we were discussing, or should I say I was telling him, how uncomfortable I was with it all. I say to him "I just want to know that I am prettier then her." he replies, "Well I don't know, I haven't seen her in a long time." Seriously, come on. My thought reaction was to throw something at him, but all I could do was stand there and stare at him in utter disbelief that he was dumb enough to even say that. He knew right away that he had said the wrong thing, and tried to hug it out. I was not having it. I guarantee that he will never make that mistake again.
Everyone wants open and honest communication in a relationship, but when I ask if these pants make my butt look big, I want the answer to always be no, even if it is a total lie. If I ask if I am prettier then someone, I want the answer to be "You are the prettiest women I have ever seen." or something along those lines, even if we both know it is a load of crap. If he was to ask me if I thought someone was more handsome then he is, my response would automatically be "Of course not, no one is as handsome as you." Little white lies like that are totally O.K. with me.
So as uneasy as this whole thing makes me, I am going to trust that Mr. W will not be a shit head and do anything that would warrant me having to kick his ass. And it is not him that I worry about, it is her. Apparently if you love things you set them free and they come back or however that dumb ass saying goes.
