(This is for all of us who can only think of a snappy comeback minutes or hours later. My usual response is to roll my eyes - seriously!)
This afternoon, I was talking to my male coworker about the fact that my fourth anniversary is next Thursday. The condensed version of the conversation goes like this:
C: Wow. You’ve been married for four years, and you’re only 25? Well, my mom had two kids by the time she was 22.
Me: Well, he proposed seven weeks and five days after our first date, but we decided to wait a while and make sure we weren’t just crazy.
C: (eyes gettin huge) Wow! You must be able to take the chrome off a trailer hitch or something!
Me: Yes, but I do it with finesse. And it’s the finesse that counts.
He laughed, and I went on my merry way.
But I DID it! I actually thought of a snappy comeback and didn’t just roll my eyes at him. I’m so proud of myself.
