Hormone Hostage

We, The Titans of Town Talk were sent this handy hormone guide that should be as common as a driver’s license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, or significant other.

It goes like this:

DANGEROUS: What’s for dinner?

SAFER: Can I help you with dinner?

SAFEST: Where would you like to go for dinner?

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?

SAFER: Gee, you look good in brown.

SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!

DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?

SAFER: Could we be overreacting?

SAFEST: Here’s fifty dollars.

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?

SAFER: You know, there are a lot of apples left.

SAFEST: Can I get you a glass of wine with that?

And our personal favorite…

DANGEROUS: What did you do all day?

SAFER: I hope you didn’t over do it today.

SAFEST: I’ve always loved you in that robe!
