I mean I actually have to
send him a link
to the thing I want.
I mean I would almost
rather him not buy anything for me…
because he just goes
and buys me something
really SHIT. And he’s started being
really funny about it, like now
he buys me something
and says I probably won’t like it
even before I unwrap it. And I
just said to him that it’s better for me
to SAY I don’t like it and take it back,
than to pretend. And
I must have mentioned like
twice a day that I want
some stacking rings. But he
sees that as like an engagement ring,
like I’d MARRY him
for Christ’s sake. I mean if I want
to find out what HE wants
I would ask his friends.
Why doesn’t he do that? Oh, and then
he goes online to Sophie
to ask what I want
and she tells him that I want
some black jeans and this poster
I linked to on Facebook, and he
just didn’t pay ANY ATTENTION to her…
Yes but I shouldn’t have to say
what I want.
