Cohabitation Update: The Difference Between Men and Women

(Scene: The Casa Kitchen, last night. Dinnertime. Brooke is standing by the stove, getting ready to prepare dinner. Enter Army Boy.)

Army Boy: Hey Babe. What can I do to help.

Brooke: (slightly distracted, as she is working out how to time the prep of 3 different things) Um… set the table. That would be great.

Army Boy: (sighs) Oh SURE. Give me the little kid jobs.

Brooke: Yup!

(She starts cooking, occasionally asking for a utensil or for him to check a timer. The dinner is prepared, and they eat.)

An Hour Later….

Brooke: Are you ready to start the cupcakes?

Army Boy: Sure! What can I do?

Brooke: (thinks a moment) You could put the liners in the muffin pans. Oh, and can you preheat the oven and grab me the scissors?

Army Boy: (walks over, sets the oven, comes back.) Ok?

Brooke: Hmmm. Did you forget the scissors?

Army Boy: Right!! (gets them, hands them to Brooke. Returns to standing there, staring.)

Brooke: Gee, those muffin tins sure look like they need cupcake wrappers in them.

Army Boy: DIRECTIONS ARE HARD. (Starts putting the cupcake papers in, color-coordinating them.)

Brooke: And you whine when I make you set the table because it’s too easy.

Army Boy: I hate you.

(Brooke reaches over and switches two cupcake wrappers to mess up his pattern. He sulks.)

  1. No, it was merely the volume at which you were giving him his directions. Next time shout the directions in a very authoritarian voice. Bet he does it all without missing a beat and in double time. Hehe.
