Scene from a Marriage

We have some version of this conversation every night.

Me: "Would you like X or Y for dinner? "

Kevin: "I don't care."

Me: "C'mon. You have to have a preference. "

Kevin: "No, I don't. "

Me: "Gun to your head. What do you want? "

Kevin: "I don't ..."

Me: "GUN TO YOUR HEAD. What do you want?  I'm trying to be nice. "

Kevin : "I'm trying to be nice to You. I don't CARE."

Me: "Fine. "

I had oatmeal for dinner. He had Tuna Helper. Now that's love.

My favorite part is where you interrupted him to repeat "GUN TO YOUR HEAD" more intensely. Ha ha ha ha!

I particularly love the juxtaposition of GUN TO YOUR HEAD and trying to be nice in the same sentence!!
