Default Female Communication?

So my wife, Lida, walked up and stood in front of me wearing a white robe over her clothes and we had the following conversation:

Lida- What do you think of this robe?
Me- (sensing a trap) itís very nice.
Lida- Does it look like an old ladyís robe?
Me- (throwing caution to the wind) all robes look like old ladiesí robes
Lida- should I hem it?
Me- why bother itís not dragging the floor, where would you be wearing it other than around the house?
Lida- I would never wear it, I am going to get rid of it (walks away)
Me- What the ****?

She doesnít seem mad and isnít throwing things. I will remain on high alert for a few days in any event. Best case, she is looking for an excuse to buy a new robe.

The title alone is a double negative.

I am tested regularly. It’s the whole “I don’t want you to DO the dishes, I want you to WANT to do the dishes” type thing

Who in their right minds WANTS to do the dishes?!?! She wants to see if youíll lie to her and if she can tell when you are. Thatís my guess. Sneaky one there.

By saying "nothing" you have said so much! Best of luck if she reads the thread...

Sounds to me like she wants you to make some pretty blanks just for her. Any chance she would have fun casting blanks? She might turn out to be a good partner in crime penturning!

I made her a Minnie Mouse watch part pen which she loved but wasnít so enamored with cost. Wants me to start making them I believe so she and her friends can have access to many more. Doubtful she will want any part in the fabrication of the blanks nor pens. I also donít encourage it, I do enjoy my brief alone time in the shop.
