I do often feel a teeny bit sorry for my husband. Sometimes. He often says something that riles me, that results in an argument and afterwards, if I really thought about it, the opposite thing he could have said, probably would have riled me as well. He was in a bit of a lose/lose situation. In the interest of open, honest conversation, I have told him that. Just so he knows, I know.
HOWEVER….I do worry about where his head is at, when he pipes up with some real beauties, thank quite frankly are very very brave, but could only end in tears.
