I got nothin’/marital advice

It has been about a week since I posted last, and I got nothin’. Except a little bit of marital advice. If you are ever in a mildly heated discussion with your significant other. Something like who’s fault it is that the house is littered with comic books and old albums. And if you know you’re on the wrong side of history, the best thing to do is in mid conversation hold up your hand and in a quiet patronizing tone say “It’s ok, apology accepted” and stand back. There will be a couple of seconds to let the full weight of the idiocy of the statement sink in … and well you can figure out the rest. It’s actually never worked but it does change the direction of the conversation, so there’s that.

    I get it, you’re an instigator, just like Woody Woodpecker.

    oh no – I should have read that yesterday!
    a sleepless night and an endless discussion might have been avoided / prolonged.
    anyway thanks for the advice – I’ll think of it next time.

    Sometimes I try to come up with the theory of kipple that Philip K. Dick
    mentioned in his book ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep ?’
    ‘When nobody’s around, kipple reproduces itself. …’

    so the chaos is not my fault!

    of course i don’t like to use the term kipple for my historically significant stuff (or your valuable books) but it might be worth a try..
