Scuttlebutt in a squabble
Scuttlebutt: *sharpens knife*
Prattle: *peeks around corner into kitchen* Uh.. *points at shiny sharp thing* Whatcha doin' there Ms. Scuttlebutt?
Scuttlebutt: *looks back at you* I'm sharpening my butcher knife...
Prattle: For foodie Friday's?
Scuttlebutt: Hmm... nope. I think this will be sooner than Friday if it keeps going on.
Prattle: Uh-huh.. If what keeps going on?
Scuttlebutt: Mr. Scuttlebutt's sulking...
Prattle: *rolls eyes* Men...
Scuttlebutt: I just don't know if I will kill him in his sleep or while he is sitting on the couch sulking... Hmmm... What do you think?
Prattle: Well that depends on if you want him to see you coming or not..
Scuttlebutt: *giggles* Oh I don't know. *thinks* I think its going to be easier when he sleeps cause he certainly will fight me off right?
Prattle: You make a point there.. *nods head*
Scuttlebutt: Well anyways... I'll give him a couple of days. If this goes on... he is gonna be the meal for Foodie Friday!
Prattle: *thumbs through cookbook for recipe on cannibalism* Hm...maybe we feed him to the fishes?
Scuttlebutt: I think he will look good in the oven with an apple in his mouth. *evil grin*
Prattle: Men have been known to be pigs, yes.. so what's got you all excited about "cooking"? I thought that was my kinda thing.
Scuttlebutt: Oh dear... I don't know where to start actually. For a few days now he is sulking... just dragging himself from the couch to the bed, then to work and back home to sulk some more.
Prattle: That's not good!
Scuttlebutt: I know it's not! We have talked about it, it's not something that only concerns him. It's a problem that concerns both of us but I don't tend to sulk around... I am trying to do something about my problem. And if I can't, I just smile and say "OK, I'll get through this."
Prattle: Sulking does not solve anything, just makes you more sad..
Scuttlebutt: I know. But he wont snap out of it. What should I do? Maybe talk to Dr. Ruth? Kick his arse? Shake him?
Prattle: Uh..is he sulking about sex?
Scuttlebutt: Oh my God! That would be a good kind of sulking actually!
Scuttlebutt: No... the sulking is about money... or let's say about the lack of enough money. Money...money...money.
Prattle: That is the majority of our fights in the Prattle house too..
Scuttlebutt: OK, I know. Money makes the world go round but HELL!! Its not EVERYTHING!! Oh dear... Damn whoever invented this stuff! sighs
Prattle: No, love makes the world go round.. Money is a necessary evil..
Scuttlebutt: I like your attitude hon and I agree with you. But there's something about men and money.
Prattle: Yes, I think it's in the genes
Scuttlebutt: Yes... money equals power. No money - no power.
Prattle: Some times you have to tell your guy to "man up" or grow up.
Scuttlebutt: Oh I told him that and the result was ... more sulking!
Prattle: Oh no....
Scuttlebutt: I think I just go and hit him on the head. Maybe the machine starts working again?
Prattle: LOL! find the reboot button!
Scuttlebutt: Is there a reboot button??
Prattle: Er....sort of...
Scuttlebutt: *stands up* I am definitely going to find that one!
Prattle: They need to be babied sometimes too..
Prattle: Uh, yeah...only sometimes.. *whistles*
Scuttlebutt: I'm sorry Mrs. Prattle... gotta go hit Mr. Scuttlebutt!! Errr... I mean hit his reboot button!
Disclaimer: Ms. Scuttlebutt is not really planing on killing Mr. Scuttlebutt so no worries... no pigs... errr... men, will get harmed. *grins*
