"Absolutely not!" I bellowed. "we are not going to get another animal, especially a dog," I continued forcefully. His name is Teaser. He's a Yorkshire Terrier. We'll get back to him later.
I really thought this was a bad idea but unfortunately, a man has no defense against a pleading woman. You can argue with a woman. You probably won't win even when you think you have. You can refuse to talk to them for a short time or vice verse. You can even discuss issues and agree to disagree.But men have no recourse to pleading and /or crying. It is an unfair tactic and ought to be outlawed.
The next step after giving in is to go shopping for just the right pet.
I found my wife to be particularly drawn to the small furry type. The one we were eyeballing was taken out of the cage and handed to my wife. No question about who was making the decision here. I don't know the proper medical term for what happened to me when the store clerk told us the price. You stop breathing for a short time then start hyperventilating. You become faint and I'm told, all the color leaves your face.
