SO just called and asked if it’s OK that he needs to spend the night out Friday night.
(He works at a cancer clinic, and signed up for Relay for Life-overnight fundraising event- months ago. They’ve had a lot of overnight volunteers back out last minute.)
“Have fun! I’ll make some sandwiches for ya!”
Then it dawns on me…
“Ohhh- I get it. I tell you you’re not allowed to spend the night out, you get out of it since you don’t want to go anyway, and I take the heat for being the jealous sidekick. Is that what you were hoping for?”
(he is like the only guy among a bunch of very attractive girls at work, but honestly, it didn’t even occur to me)
He laughs, “Yep-that’s about what I was hoping for!”
He doesn’t like to say no to people.
So, I ask you, do we say I wasn’t down with it, possibly making me look like an uncharitable insecure type? We are a team, and I want him to have what he wants, and he’d probably do it for me, blah blah blah.
Or do I tell him to get his ass in gear and pack his toothbrush?
