top 10 reasons why i wish i never got married

In honor of having yet another huge fight with my husband over the in-laws.  Here they are.

10. No more dirty, smelly socks all over the place.

9. One less person to clean up after.

8. More room on the bed and no getting “accidentally” whacked in the nose while I’m sleeping.  It’s hazardous!

7. Less stuff = less mess.

6. Then maybe I would actually still be having sex.

5. No in-laws.

4. No in-laws.

3. No in-laws.

2. No in-laws.

1. No in-laws.

 What can I say?  Having no in-laws is absolutely priceless in my book.

  1. top 10 reasons why you don’t want me as your professor in the futureSo despite my best efforts to convince him otherwise, my husband is stubbornly continuing in his quest to get into med school and is again taking some classes this semester. And, apparently, I've become his personal TA. Mind you now, I have zero experience TAing because I managed to weasel my way out of my grad school's TA requirement thanks to being in a time-limited dual-degree program (read: I don't have time to waste trying to teach silly undergrads). I also haven't touched any of the material he's now learning for well over five years, which doesn't make his reliance on me as his personal human encyclopedia instead of going to the trouble of actually reading his textbooks rather annoying. Ironic that my goal is to go into academics because I'm pretty sure I would make a horrible professor. So here are the top 10 reasons why you don't want me for your professor if I ever get that far: 10. I really can't stand you and I'm not afraid to show it. Corollary: If you're a pre-med, I'll make things twice as hard for you because I really can't stand pre-meds. 9. I have absolutely zero tolerance for any whining/complaining/demands for extra credit. Such actions will result in you wishing you were never born. 8. I'm aiming for all 1s across at ratemyprofessor.com. Except for the hotness factor, of course. Because I'm hot. 7. No two exams of mine will ever be alike. Or even close to being alike....
  2. i have an early morning tomorrow……so we can have sex but no sleeping on my chest afterwards. Actually, can you sleep in the other room? You see, it’s nothing personal and I really would love to give up half of my bed to sleep next to your warm (preferably naked) body. It’s just that this study says that men who share their beds with someone don’t do so well cognitively the next day. And I really could use all the smarts I can get. Well, it’s kind of odd, actually, because sleeping together leads to both of us having disturbed sleep, but only I’m affected cognitively. I guess it’s a guy thing. So don’t worry, you’re not becoming dumber because you sleep with me, though sleeping with me does mess up your dream recall. And besides, we can still have sex. That won’t affect how I function cognitively in the morning and it’ll help my dream recall. And aren’t you always complaining about how I take up 90% of the bed and kick and punch you while I’m sleeping? This way, we’ll both win. I won’t be so dumb and you’ll get a good night’s sleep and better dream recall. Sound like a plan?...
  3. there are four in-laws in my house right now……and need I say that I’m not happy about it?  Let’s just say that my sister-in-law is something else.  Something else that I really would like to smash to pieces.  There.  That sure feels better.  Well, not really. At times like these, I turn to my how to deal with crazy in-laws bible: Toxic In-Laws by Susan Forward.  I purchased this book in my dark days of being hurt again and again by my in-laws while still trying to please them, thinking that if only I did what they wanted they would stop hurting me and accept me.  Well, thanks to this book, I now know better.  If for nothing else, this book is a sympathetic supporter, which I did not have in my husband.  It affirms that other women suffer through the same hell as I do and that it’s not my fault that my in-laws are highly unreasonable people.  The book is divided into two parts: the first includes descriptions of the five different types of toxic in-laws and the second part describes strategies for dealing with them.  Strategies include how to set boundaries, how to get out of their negative conversations, and how to get your spouse to understand and be on your side.  It was and is a quite useful book for dealing with my in-laws even though I don't get to use those great conversation stoppers too much because of the difficulty getting the same point across in a different language.  I do wish that it...
