How to make your girlfriend’s outlook a lot bleaker…

All right, so, I made a pretty big gaffe on the way home.

As usual, I was talking to Misty on the phone when driving home, and she was telling me about a conversation she had had with an old friend of hers. At one point, Misty sighed and said something along the lines of, “The whole point of marriage is spending time with the one you chose to be with.”

In what I thought was a lighthearted manner, I replied, “Oh? I thought it was because of the tax breaks.”

The resulting silence was more dead than Kevin Federline’s career.

Next time, I’ll just remember to keep my trap shut. Though, I should say that Misty did state later that her silence was actually her rolling her eyes at me. Still… heh. That wasn’t one of my best moments.
