As you wish

As you wish” says Darling while shaking his shoulders. It didn’t bother me, at first, when I would ask him if he’d prefer me in my black dress ou my pink jeans, but when I ask him if he prefers going to Cuba to swim with the dolphins or discovering Bangladesh and his answer is “as you wish“, the awful truth hits me: we’re an old couple!

He doesn’t listen anymore
When I ask him if I should take Sherlock (our 11 year old cat) to the vet or to see a cat shrink because of his lack of energy, he pretends to listen to me while playing his car game on his Ipad “as you like“. The same thing when I ask him if he wants to eat thaï or lasagnas, to buy a car or a flat. And when I talk to him about it, he says he knows me by heart and apparently knows what my answer will be… I think we would know if men were psychic…

According to him, we perfectly know each other  listen
I just want to yell at him how mysterious I can be with my little secret garden and how it still happens to me to grow things there but he wouldn’t hear me: apparently, I have no inner monologue… But I do have secrets, plenty even! Like “how to be mad to my boyfriend for 24 hours straight“…
I ask him: if we know each other so well, aren’t we going to get bored at some point? His answer? Guess… While watching the Tour de France and playing on his Ipad: “as you wish“…

As I wish?
Instead of getting mad at him each time he pronounces that sentence (at least once an hour), I better do something about it! Yes, since it’s all like I like, I will do what I like. Wearing my favorite yellow outfit when I’m as pale as a white yoghurt and look like a walking dead? Done. Eat my desert before the main dish? Delightful! Book our next holidays to Bangladesh? Check. He lifts an eyebrow. Ah, there he is: Darling is finally awake…

Complementarity
He looks at me, seriously, and tells me the fact the doesn’t take a decision isn’t about the age of our couple or that he doesn’t care. It’s just that we’re so complementary that he knows he’s going to be glad of the decision I make, no matter what. “Men’s mind is so much simpler.”, That, I can believe, and most of all, I’d be glad to trade anytime! But until then, we’re still going to Bangladesh next year… if I like!
