We have a two-bedroom apartment and long ago I ceded the second room to the Hubby for use as a workshop, computer room, closet. I take up most of the shared living room space with overflowing bookshelves, so it was a fair trade. But I never tire of reminding him of how nice and generous it was of me to give up the second bedroom for his sole use.
Hubby: The cable guy liked my man den. He said “Nice room, man.”
Me: And did you tell him why you have a man den?
Sensing a trick question, the Hubby pauses to consider his next move.
Hubby: I said “I told the wife ‘Yo, woman. Imma need some of my own space to do my own thing. Got it?’”
Me: That’s not what you said.
Hubby: And then I elbowed him in the side and winked and said, “Because women, they get, like, the whole kitchen to themselves, you know what I’m sayin’?”
Me: Go do the laundry.
