Writers Workshop: Describe a moment you realized you and your SO were different?

I have decided to join in on the Writer's Workshop on
Mama's Losin It! This is the prompt that I chose: Describe a moment when you realized you and your SO were different:

One evening, we were sitting down to dinner. A rare occasion since he works 12 hour days and misses family dinner time. I had tried a new variation of meatloaf which he was looking at as though it was forensic evidence at a crime scene. "What is this?" he asks. I start to feel defensive, "It's meatloaf dummy." I say. "Oh." I watch him out of the corner of my eye, picking it apart. "What are you doing?" I ask "It's got celery and onions in it" he says laughing.

At this point I am no longer laughing. I am crushed. He doesnt like my cooking. I start to cry. He starts to laugh. This makes me cry more.

It was at this point I realized that we are different. He is so easy going and laughs everything off, me I am so overly sensitive that the thought of preparing a hated meatloaf sent me into tears.

Maybe I should learn to relax....

Then again maybe not, he did feel so bad that night that he ate 2 helpings of the meatloaf (after picking out the onions and celery...)

  1. Ahhhh... It sounds like he's just not very good at change. But he must have loved your meatloaf to eat 2 helpings even if he did take out the onions and celery.

    I wish I could cook...sigh


Let me know what you think!!!
