Husbands and Wives – The Dress

Wife: Which one of these dresses do you like better?
Husband: That one.
Wife: Why?
Husband: The other one has an empire waist, and I’m not a fan of the empire waist.
Wife, possibly glaring: My wedding dress had an empire waist…

What should the husband say next?
A. Oh, hey, look at the time! I gotta go to my (insert excuse here).
B. It did? All I remember is how beautiful you looked that day.
C. Umm…
D. (nothing, just back away slowly and leave the room)

There is no right answer, of course.

The aforementioned conversation might have been hypothetical. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is strictly coincidental. No husbands were harmed in the making of this blog post.

    B) is a pretty good answer. We women are pretty superficial; tell us how beautiful we are and you *might* get away with whatever else you said that was BAD.

    The root problem is that the husband knows what an empire waist is. Without that knowledge, this conversation doesn’t happen.

    E. Wife is impressed that husband even knows what “empire waist” means.

    The correct answer is B 1/2.

    “It did? I didn’t know what an empire wiast was when we got married. I just learned about them recently. All I remember is how beautiful you looked that day.”

    Empire waist sounds like “really big waist – as big as an empire!”, so I was scared for you for a minute.
