Just butting in
I was up and out of the house real early today. After an 11 hour day, I got home around 8. My wife called me soon after, having just left class, suggesting that we go out when she got home. I had to decline because I needed to get up at 4am the next morning. At this point, my alarm would be going off in about 7.5 hours.
I took a seat on the couch to watch a bit of the Red Sox with my dad and mother-in-law (MiL). My wife got home soon after and I knew something was wrong. She was dressed pretty nice. It's not that her dressing nice is wrong, far from it, it was that she had dressed nice to go out with me. I only turned her down because I had to be at work at 6am. So she quickly went upstairs to change and my MiL came over to me on the couch.
"You should go see your wife, she went up stairs crying because if you. She said.
"Holy shit." I mouthed to myself. She was doing her typical butting in the middle of things that aren't her business.
I hate when she does this.
My wife was already changed when I got upstairs. I apologized for not being able to go out tonight and she seemed ok with the sitiation, albeit still sad. I went to bed after and started to wonder just how long I had to put up with this.
