  1. Bwahahahahahaha! I don’t think it’s too much to ask at all!
    Especially the two about chocolate. That’s exactly how I feel! “Do not bring chocolate into this house. Do not sabotage me!” “Omg, how did you let us run out of chocolate? Don’t you love me?”

  2. The Howard Jones’ song “No One Is to Blame” played in my head as I read your post. In a way, I feel you get me even though we haven’t seen each other in years. Cheers mi amiga bonita!

  3. Awesome list! My two favorites: read my blog but not take any of my crap personally, and let me rant about the friends that make me stabby and not judge me for still being friends with them.

  4. It’s like he doesn’t know me at all. Tell me what to do. Stop thinking you have all the answers. Pour me another drink. HIDE THE FUCKING TEQUILA. Smile at me like you used to. Stop; you look high.

  5. Brilliant!!!! Can I please lacquer this on a piece of driftwood (slightly burning the edges first, of course, for that ancient feel) and hang it on every wall of my house?

  6. “tell me the truth about the frumpy brown skirt from J. Crew circa 2001”

    Um, yes. My best friend and I had a mutual come to Jesus talk recently about certain articles of clothing that had been hanging out in our respective closets since freshman year of college. Eleven years and a combined thirty pounds heavier ago. I’m pretty sure I had the frumpy brown skirt, and that it was a-line, knee-length, and corduroy. Gross.

  7. Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no. This is why I completely get toddlers and teenagers. I want to do it, but I want you to do it for me. ALWAYS. What’s so hard about understanding this, really?

    • You know, I totally get that about my kids too. I want to tie my own shoes, but I completely lack the dexterity to make that happen. The fury and frustration is part of my daily life. I think I am part toddler and always will be.

  8. Seems very reasonable to me. . . much in the same way a three year old is reasonable. Don’t they (“they” – the group of scientists who know everything) say that life is cyclical? 🙂

  9. Brilliant! I think I have to print this out and post on fridge. Perfectly said. Never heard the word “shabby” before. That’s a new one for me. Love all your rants, raves, posts and more. xoxo

  10. EXACTLY. See? It’s not that hard. Also you must desire me at all times but only act on it when I’m in the mood. And it kills the mood if you ask so don’t ask, mood killer.

  11. A perfectly simple list for the simple men in our lives! I don’t see a problem at all. When I feel stabby (this word describes the feeling to a “T”), listen to me but stay out of my way!
