Is it evil that I like to tease my husband? I sure hope not, because I do it all the time. Not a mean, potentially abusive type of teasing, but a light-hearted joke here, or a silly comment there. It's all in the name of fun.
So, the latest thing in the teasing rampage has been toothbrushes -- he bought this mega pack of toothbrushes at Costco...it had 5 brushes -- 2 blue ones, and the rest were multi-coloured (kinda girly, pastel colours). He chooses a green one and sticks it in the shower...I asked him for one while i was in the shower (Yes, I brush my teeth in the shower, get over it!) -- and he passes me purple. I don't like purple. BLUE is my colour of choice. But -- whatever...it's a toothbrush.
After a few days, I said to him, "Hey babe...which color is my toothbrush again? I can never remember..." and just leave it at that.
If he was a cartoon, he would have done one of those Bugs Bunny "doing" thing where his ears perk up and vibrate for a second...he slowly says, "Purple." I shrug and go on with my day. The seed is now planted.
Later that night, I noticed he put another new toothbrush at the sink -- I grabbed my chance -- the one at the sink is also green -- I chose a blue one. (this will all make sense in a few seconds!)
That next morning, I ask again -- "Hey -- which toothbrush at the sink is mine? I have the girly color, right?" -- he, knowing something is up, just shakes his head.
But -- VICTORY -- that night, as I watched him going to go brush his teeth -- he hesitated over which toothbrush to grab...is it the blue? The green? Do I dare risk getting hethr toothbrush germs in my mouth?
It took him probably 20 seconds to try to remember which was his brush.
And I just giggle.
