Gosh, haven't you learned yet. The LAST thing you do is pay them attention!! The next thing you know they are going through your credit card receipts, pockets, wallet....calling your friends to find out where you have been for the last 50 times you haven't been together!!! They are a suspicious species.
Treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen, that's what's worked for me for 11 years. I wear the pants in my household......
yes, comming dear, I was just, well, yes dear it IS a silly hobby, no of course I don't love the computer more than you...........
Not here are the goblets glowing,
Not here is the vintage sweet;
'Tis cold as our hearts are growing,
And dark as the doom we meet.
But stand to your glasses, steady!
And soon shall our pulses rise:
A cup to the dead already-
Hurrah for the next that dies!
