I often send F an e-mail list of things that need to be done, reminded, picked up etc, while I'm at work so I don't forgot to tell him. Here is the exchange after the most recent e-mail To-Do list:
A few things.
1) that $20 ends tomorrow(kohl's money coupon), so you should probably go tonight and get them(shoes, he is like a woman when it comes to shoes). I won't be able to go with you since I have to......
2) cut the grass(hasn't been done in 2 weeks and it is about ready to re-seed itself)....and
3) make my dish for our potluck tomorrow which will require me to....
4) go grocery shopping, i might be able to do this at lunch.
5) You need to go to "the bank" and get a VISA card for L&T.(who are getting married this month which means a trip BACK EAST VERY SOON.)
wow that is some list... (please make special note of this sentence from him)
3. potluck??? leave some at home for lunch please
5. I wanted to give them a check for money and not a visa card...
6. please grab a mother's day card for me tonight...(um? seriously?? after your OPENING LINE????)
3)no because you always complain that it's "too something"(my highly requested mac & cheese was "TOO CHEESY" which ended the setting aside of) and hence I said I would no longer set any aside for you.
6)dude, seriously, get your own mother's day card. it means nothing if you can't even pick it out yourself. (mind you, until he got together with me, he never sent cards, FOR ANYTHING. Didn't even know when her birthday was, true story.)
3. I said please
3)fine, I don't want to hear any complaints.
6)Good, like I didn't have enough to do already. the card department is right by the shoes in Kohl's anyway. jeez.
