Last night the Double B and I watched an episode of 'Everybody Loves Raymond' wherein Debra and Ray assign possible replacements for themselves in case one of them should keel over. It was funny. I giggled, and thought "What an absolutely horrible idea for me to ever consider!"
Unfortunately, having not yet learned his lesson, the Double B thought that this would be a good game to play today.
The conversation went something like this:
B - Who would you pick to replace you?
M - Uh-uh. No way! Mmm-mmm. No. Nope! No.
B - Come on, tell me!
M - No. We are not playing this game. To quote Raymond, "I consider myself irreplaceable."
B - I'll tell you who'd I'd pick to replace me.
M - NO! I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW!
B - But I have some really good options. They'd both be really good for you!
M - No, you weirdo! No!
B - I just think it's good to have options.
M - Whatever. No.
And then, because he kept pushing the issue, we got into a debate about the merits of re-marrying (his plan) versus a life of good wholesome single parenting (my plan).
The Double B sometimes sets himself up for punishment. It's really very endearing.
