A conversation before bed, shouted between neighboring rooms

Husband [After letting the dogs out and before brushing his teeth and getting into bed]: Hey, you better look at these shoes you set out for The Boy to wear to school tomorrow.

Me: [While shutting down computer before letting the dogs in, putting them in their crates, giving the rabbits a snack, putting straggling dishes in the dishwasher and starting it, taking allergy meds, turning off lights, taking contacts out, washing my face, putting PJs on, brushing my teeth, and getting into bed]: What, did I put out two different shoes?

Husband: Yep.

Me: Well $%@*ing fix it for @#!$’s sake! Don’t leave it for me do to! #@%%!



Husband: Wow. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?

Me: [Laughing] It took you forever to answer to that. I must have shocked you into silence with my colorful use of words.

Husband: Nah. I was eating a Pringle.

Me: Fix the shoes.

You can feel the love, right?
