He's Not the Nurturing Type

Sexy Nerd and I have been together for more than 6 years, during which we have learned that each of us has our own wacky traits that irk the other (though I must insist through this post that mine are nothing compared to his!) One of my pet peeves is that Sexy Nerd is the kind of person who will go into the kitchen at lunch time, make himself a sandwich, and eat it in front of you, without the thought of asking if your would also like a sandwich ever crossing his mind. I've nicely (and maybe occasionally ever so slightly less than nicely) tried to train remind Sexy Nerd that this behavior borders on selfish cruel lazy being a huge,smelly jerk not very nice and he has slowly made improvements.

At least, I thought he had been improving.

Sexy Nerd announced today that he would be smoking a chicken for dinner. He brined it and put it inside the smoker (which I bought him, but that's a different story). The house was filled with the tasty smell of hickory for several hours. When it would be done smoking was a complete mystery (and source of a future "Sexy Nerd Quote Of The Day"). I made us a pitcher of iced tea and imagined us enjoying our chicken out on the patio, listening to the birds and soaking up the spring sunshine. Around 5:30pm, I was reading a magazine in my office and had just torn out an article on beer brewing to give to you know who, (as I am the nurturing type) when Sexy Nerd walked in. I told him that the chicken smells great and was wondering if it's almost done, to which he replied:

"Oh...it's been done."

In response to the puzzled look I must have had, he elaborated:

"It was good. If you want to go get some, I put the rest in the fridge."
