This morning the orginal post that I published last night was met with a somewhat sarcastic “Nice post.” I was told that my “tone analysis” was way off base and it was not at all accurate.

Woman: “Sounds good. Yeah we do have enough at home.”

Half hour later at TJ’s while checking out:

Woman: “You got Mozzarella.”

Man: “Yeah, I’ve got it covered. I remembered.” Said with great pride with much emphasis on the “I” parts while pointing to self. Actual thoughts: ‘See I pay attention to what you say and try to remember what we are shopping for.’

Woman: “I just thought we were gonna go through the ones we had at home.”

Man: “Oh.” Pause.  “That’s right.” Actual thought: ‘DOH!!  It looks like I don’t pay attention or remember what we are shopping for. ‘

Woman: “I am so glad YOU had it all covered!” Chuckles. Giggles.
