Ways I Annoy The Shit Out Of My Girlfriend, Part 5480957...

I haven't done one of these in a while. It's not because I've stopped being annoying. It's just that I'm so annoying that all my annoyances start to blend together and become indistinct from one another. Yesterday when Megan was getting ready to leave for work, we had this conversation:

Me: Do you need me to move my car?
Her: Yes, but not right this second.
Me: Oh, so you need me to move my car right this second?
Her: sigh
Me: Am I annoying?
Her: No.
Me: Exhausting?
Her: Exasperating.
Me: Exasparilla?
Her: See what I mean?

Seriously, don't you think that'd be a cool name for a beverage? Exasparilla. Kinda like Sasparilla.

I am not a morning person, so I would've really hurt you.

Yeah, I think I'd have jammed a bagel up your nose.

I think you should MARKET exasperilla!

My husband does the same thing:
Me: I bought some milk.
Him: You bought milk?
Me: YES, I bought milk!
Him: You bought some milk?
Me: STOP THAT I HATE YOU.

You don't have many weapons/sharp objects in the house, do you?

I love how she said no when you asked if you were annoying, likely hoping it would shut you up.

Exasparilla is delicious poured over ice cream.

raf said...

Remind me the spanish word 'parrilla'which means barbeque, and so your name would be something like 'barbequed ex'..
I'm sure many people would like it!

I'm certain that thinking up this shit has got to rob you of sleep at night.

Have you tried spit-bubbles on incessant ass-pinching? I find these annoy the hell out of Flannery. Perhaps Megan too.

Not that you really need any suggestions...

You should make a book out of this series. I love the goofy walk on the dock the best.

I love the bit that I recognize there, too. The part about how "not right this second" actually means, "get your ass out there and do this before I have to ask you again" and you called her on it. And then pushed the joke, because, hell, she was already annoyed so why not.

Annoying the significant other is an art in its own right, one that you obviously take as seriously as I do.

The ironic truth of the matter is, that if we were to stop annoying our loves on a regular basis, they would inevitably wonder what is wrong with us and/or suddenly question our commitment to them (despite their constant pleas for us to not be so annoying). Thus, by making these intentional annoyances the status quo of the relationship, everyone stays happy.

So what I'm really saying is that we're both geniuses.

I'd buy some exasparilla, but women should know that the best way to avoid this (besides not dating us in the first place) is to just stop responding. That doesn't stop our amorous attempts, though.

Poor Megan - I'd kill you.

Seriously, Megan makes Job look like a wuss.
