While both of us getting ready this morning for work, the BF decides to do a nice thing for me and offers to install my new wiper blades.
BF: Allison, did you get new wipers last night?
Me: Yep, they are in the car. I'm going to put them on this morning because I was too lazy last night.
BF: I'll do it for you. Just give me your keys.
Me: Thanks but it's OK. I know how do it myself. My dad taught me.
BF: (trying to be nice) Just give me your keys.
ME: BF, I'm a do-it-yourself kind of woman.
BF: (He breaks into immediate laughter) DIY woman?
Me: Look, BF, I can do a lot of things myself. I'm pretty self-sufficient.
BF: Oh, I know you are. So if you are a DIY woman, what's an alternator?
Me: It's that thing that charges your car. I know when it goes bad everything slowly stops working - the radio, the lights and the steering wheel freezes. (This happened to me once.)
BF: Ok, (thinking of a better question.) What's a johnny rod?
ME: A what?
BF: A johnny rod? How do you fix the johnny rod on your car?
Me: (Thinking while flat ironing my hair) I don't know but I'm sure I could figure it out.
BF: HA! There is no such thing as a johnny rod.
Me: That was a trick question. No trick questions allowed.
