Conversations with the wife.

For reasons I can't explain the design of our house had to have a chunk of wasted space above our front door. Only accessible by a tall ladder, there's a large nook complete with window that's of no use other than decorative. It wouldn't baffle me that much if I couldn't fit my car in it.

My wife decided to decorate it as she's want to do. I like what she did with it, but today I had a few ideas bounce around in my head that might make it better. I shared one with her via IM:

Wiwille: you know that wasted space above the front door?
Wife: yea, i like it the way it is but why
Wiwille: could we turn that into a scale replica of the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon?
Wife: sure honey :)

Being a newlywed I'm starting to learn what "sure honey" really stands for, and no it doesn't mean go ahead and swing by the Home Depot and spend a few hundred dollars on a vanity project in a vain attempt to fulfill my desire to never mature. In the interest of self preservation and a happy marriage I shall not even attempt this.

But damn wouldn't it be cool?

It would be totally awesome. You've just given me an idea for that same space in my foyer.

Guess what... the husband laughed at me, called me a geek and said, "uh... no."

I would put a gigantic Jack Skelington there if that was my wasted space!

Marriage is about compromise.
Wife: sure honey.
Wiwille: Okay, how about we meet in the middle. You can decorate the pointless nook. But you hafta put your hair into the Leia buns and wear a gold bikini to bed.
