    Arlo, Arlo. You’ve wandered into the minefield of No Man’s Land

    Just ask her if she would like you to go with her.

    Which just proves that he was listening. But in this case it’s better to just throw in an"OK" or “unh hunh” now and then.

    “What are your plans today?” would be a nice question for Janis to ask.

    She should go to the mall first, and grocery shopping last. That way, the meat, dairy and produce stay fresher in the car.

    This seems like a repeat, not sure how long ago, but I seem to remember another A & J very similar to this one.

    Almost real life, but there was no mention of her friend’s nephew’s girlfriend.

    Not so sure going to any mall is worth it anymore, they seem like dead zones.

    My wife is very soft-spoken, so I have a Personal Sound Amplifier I wear and occasionally forget to turn on.

    I’ve lost track, are they both retired? Can Arlo help with all these errands?

    I’ve come to the conclusion that most women need to talk to each other, and don’t grasp that most men don’t. And most men don’t need to talk to anyone, and don’t grasp that most women do. This is the main reason why I finish my meal sooner than my wife finishes hers.

    I’m in shock. She’s actually leaving the house to do something other than take a walk.

    All she wants is ONE sentence to acknowledge that you heard her.

    “Sounds like a busy day”

    “Have fun”

    Or

    “Enjoy your errands”

    Hubs and I only leave the house for medical appointments usually. Neither of us likes going out. I’m happy with online shopping though the two grocers that deliver make me nuts at times! Their pickers do the most ridiculous things at times, like substituting a single roll of toilet paper for hamburger buns? Seriously?!

    Yeah, they hear about it clear up to corporate. Honestly… trouble with living in a small town is I don’t really have a choice of where to order from for groceries :(

    But – I understand. If I tell husband we need to do this or that or that we need this or that – he will have no memory of the discussion and when he tells me things he only tells me part.

    He has been talking about driving our Chevy van/RV for about an hour or so as it needs to be driven. Yesterday after lunch he said “We have to drive the RV.” He knows when we are going out anywhere for an extended time (say an hour) these days I have to know before lunch so I limit liquid intake as I don’t want to use public bathrooms (until the pandemic is resolved). So I was annoyed.

    But what he actually meant that we needed to drive it up the street and leave it for state inspection at our mechanic. Confusion was due to – normally he says “We have to take (vehicle name) to Tony” when we are taking it to the mechanic and when he says we are taking it for a drive we are taking it for the extended trip to keep it running.

    I am thinking I will text everything to him even if we are in the same room and asking him to do the same so we cut down on confusion and discussion on what was said.
