Me: Hey, babe, can you put some potassium in the water softener?
ThatManILove: I'll go see how much I have in the garage and I'll check the levels tomorrow.
Me: You don't need to check the levels. I know how much is in it. My skin is super dry.
ThatManILove: (says nothing, grudgingly heads to garage.)
Me: (Small smile.)
ThatManILove: (hauls in 4 large sacks.) I'll load this, then I'll go get more tomorrow. This is about a month's worth.
Me: Sweet. (just watching.)
ThatManILove: Babe, you don't have to stand here and watch me. I don't need any help. (He takes the lid off the bin. I hear something fall.) He turns around with this funny look on his face.
Me: What was that?
ThatManILove: Paper towels.
Me: They fell in?
ThatManILove: Hang tight.
Me: (hanging tight, trying not to laugh.)
ThatManILove: Here. You ready?
ThataManILove: Can you take these? (hands me two soaked paper towel rolls. The BIG rolls. Lovely.)
Me: I'll have to put them in the sink because you need to take out the trash. (Smile.)
Me: So? How much potassium is in the softener?
ThatManILove: Zero. You were right.
Me: (smiling, walking away.) I knew it.
