Mike: “Do you trust me to do the stir-fry?”
Lisa: “I totally trust you to do the stir fry.” (Fifteen worried seconds later). “Just, don’t put any water in it. And don’t use the olive oil. And you might want to wait until the oil heats up before you put the garlic in there.”
Lisa makes a concerted effort, and stops talking.
Ten minutes later.
Mike (looking mournful): “Aww, this is too runny.”
Lisa: “Why? You didn’t put any water in it, did you?”
Mike: “Just a little bit.”
Lisa: “I’m not the only defiant one in this relationship.”
Mike: “I wasn’t being defiant, I just wasn’t trusting. And, yes, we both have that problem.”
