You grab the remote, power the TV off with a jerk. You tap your foot. You glare. He sees the magazine. Connects the dots. “Oh, that.” “Yeah, that!” you say, “Girls Gone Wild! And there’s a whole pile of these in back of the cabinet under the sink.” He smirks. “Well, you wouldn’t want them in here.”… Continue

Why is it that your mate always seems deficient in your eyes? Why is it that when you look at your beloved, all you see are flaws?

I'm sitting in an airplane on my way to a conference, debating whether to catch up on my reading or catch a few winks, when I get distracted by the conversation behind me. A woman is complaining about her husband, "He never pays attention to me," she's saying "I could wear the same dress 3 days in a row, or dye my hair purple, he wouldn't notice," Her…
