I rang the wife last night after work to say I’d pick up fish and chips on the way home.
I was met with a stoney silence. Something tells me that she’s beginning to regret letting me name the twins.

Fish and chips
I phoned my wife earlier and asked her if she wanted me to pick up fish and chips on my way home from work but she just put the phone down on me.
I think she still regrets letting me name the twins.

Just phoned the wife.
“I’m just about to finish work babe, do you want me to pick up fish and chips on my way home?”
She immediately hung up on me.
Mind you, I think she’s still bitter and probably regrets letting me name the twins.

I called my wife and told her that I’ll pick up Fish and Chips on the way from work. She didn’t respond.
She is still mad about the names I gave our kids.
