Devil's Advocate

Yesterday I was talking to a woman who was very busy and probably very distracted. At the end of the conversation, she said something a little flippant as she walked away. It bothered me all day. I had no idea what she was talking about and it was rather random.

I told Garry what happened and asked, "Isn't that weird? I have no idea what THAT was all about."

He sensibly answered, "I don't know. I wasn't there and did not hear the context and the tone."

Now, this seems to be a complete break-down of spousal duties. I don't really need a devil's advocate; I need someone to have my back. It seems like the perfect answer should have been:

"That sounds very weird. But I always thought that she was a little odd. Don't let her weirdness ruin your afternoon."

See? That would have been so much better.

Hey...
Just somehow went through this post of yours and Well i figured out the cost you spend on a dentist every year..
Well am a dentist practising in New Delhi and Would love to tell you that in that much of cost in india you can fly to and fro, roam about in india a little and also get your teeth fixed...
So think about it and do come to India as our guests and also refer your family and friends...
