So today we had drama visit our house.
My little sister texted me this morning with, "Can I move in with you in August?"
Little background, my sister is Drama Queen in all sense of the words. She has lost 5 jobs in two years because of drama that she starts between co-workers. She has had a gazillion boyfriends because she makes drama with them too.
I love her with all my heart, as sisters do, but she is DRAMA!
Now of course, who is the first person I call???
"Hello Hubby. Have I got some news for you!!! Your sister-in-law wants to come live with us. Can you just imagine the stuff she would start?? I mean, ........."
I talked for a good ten minutes about what she would do. And about how it would affect our little family. And the DRAMA!!!
Hubby's response," Well tell her no."
Are you serious? That is all you have to say??? Tell her NO!!
My response,"Did you hear anything I just said? I just told you all the stuff she would do."
Hubby, "Yes. And I said, 'Tell her no.' I got to go. Is there anything else?"
Can you see the difference in our responses??
I know that men and women's brains are different. It's what makes everything work.
I've read the books. Heard the talks.
But sometimes it just slaps me in the face, like this situation! :)
