Little BFF’s mom was putting what we call Mehndi (sounds like: man-dee) or henna on my hands Saturday night when The Boss rolled up to our girl area (uh, the kitchen table) and told her to add a Patriots logo to the design she was working on. Of course I said no to this idea, and then The Boss said yes, and then I said no again, and then Little BFF’s mom said she didn’t know what the Patriots logo looked like (she’s British) and then I said we’re not going to do that, and then The Boss took my phone and did a Google image search for the logo, and next thing you know I’m being asked to hold still while the star and stripes are being perfected.
I’ve heard a lot about about modern couples that go halfsies on everything from chores to splitting holidays to divvying up money. So in an effort to be down with The Marriage Times I was all, “Okay, YOUR TURN!” but as it would turn out Henna Oprah never materialized.
SO MUCH FOR GENDER EQUALITY.
