It's rule #1 in the Ethan and Lou handbook. Under no circumstances are you supposed to have feelings, and you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT SHARE THEM -- EVER.

Well, someone broke that rule this morning. I'll give you two guesses as to who it was, but you will only need one. Check it out:

Just terrible. No, I was not listening. No, I do not listen, but you are going to have to get over that.

I was reading an article with some fascinating sexual statistics in it. That takes full precedence over what is going on in your personal life. Can I get an AMEN?! AMEN!

In all seriousness, this poor dude was talking to me about something and really hoping I would listen. I was not listening, and just saying, "Uh-huh." It's official, we are an old married couple.

I will have to do a better job of validating my partner in the future or he may withhold sex.
