Smug Marrieds: The Hey Cutie Scenario

You know you need to pay more attention to your spouse when...

Blair and I are sitting on different sofas in the same room, reading. I look up and am struck with how handsome he is as he concentrates on his book.

"Hi, Cutie," I say.

No response.

"Hi Cutie," I repeat. 


I clear my throat and Blair looks up. "Sorry, what?" he asks.

"I was just saying, 'Hi Cutie,'" I answered.

"To me? Oh. I just assumed there was a cat walking through the room."
