Situational Comedy: Fodder for Fight

Z has a knack for saying and doing just the very things that tick me off, of course it helps that my moods are highly volatile and of late I find myself instantaneously combustible (all credit to Z again).

Situation 1: I'm frenetically packing for our weekend trip to RAK while Z lounges with the laptop. This, in Z's books is giving me space!
Z: Keep a nail cutter and file in the bag.
Me: Why? Didn’t you cut your nails at work, you took these things with you to office.
Z: I was busy.
Me: Heavens forbid, were you actually working at work today?!
Z: I was uploading pics on face book!

Situation 2: Driving to RAK (I’ve to keep up a constant and annoyingly inane chatter to make sure Z stays awake, he’s been known to fall asleep at the wheel, driving on the highway at 120 kph!) Z and I’ve decided that a woman can either be brainy or beautiful (I did say inane).

Me: So which of the two am I? (I’m smug and cackling with glee that an answer either way would mean a neat fight lasting the weekend)
Z: erm…
Me: What?
Z: I thought I was marrying a brainy woman!

wow, u go to RAK for ur weekends? when i lived in rak, my dad drove us to dxb/sharjah every thursday coz back then there wasnt much to do in rak.ofcourse all that was until 2000 when i left uae for Uni, & then dad passed away in jan 2001 so ever since i havent been to d uae...rak must've changed, for d better i guess?

Im sure ur life is alot different compared to what it was b4 d marriage, but I'm sure there r d gud moments that make u feel that u wudnt hav it any other way..?

I still think u shud blog, even if u feel ur repeating urself, so that maybe when Tyke grows up he might want to read up..?

oh, & my dad didnt necessarily expect my mom & me to talk thru the 90mins drivetime on thursdays, we'd just give in to the desi radio stations...& i've never seen as many stars as i got used to seeing there on our return drive from dxb to rak at night...

RAK has changed a lot, even from what I remembered of it fours years ago, when I wasn't married. Lots of real estate development shaping up and all.
Abt the stars, I'm sure they'd still be as bright as you remember them but since I have to keep on yakking and make sure Z is awake, I miss on that beautiful sight. :(
And I blog, in my mind, all the time, just tooo lazy to come down here and put it down. The Tyke gets earfuls from me all through the day, but you're right, i should post more often, if only for the li'l trouble-brewer.
how you been? No blogging no more? You on facebook?
