For whatever reason, he asked why I was angry today (i wasn't really, just annoyed). I actually said I'm angry because when you had chicken pox (early in our m). I put calamine lotion on your ass and in other places where a q tip and lotion should never wander! And this is how you repay me??? With an a?
I hear these words coming out but I can't stop myself. He looks at me with shock and awe and has no idea what to say. He leaves, I laugh at myself and say wth! Any of you have ridiculous wth moments in this? I need some laughs!

I've done sooo many similar things for my H over the years..... (not with chicken pox issues, but others in that region!)
I say good for you for opening up and whacking him on the head with a snarky comment like that.
The best zinger I got off on my H was when he was in the midst of the A and made every excuse in the world to work out of town, and then to expand it to some weekend stuff because of things going on in OW's town.... I told him. This sucks, you might as well be dead for all the help I get. Even divorced mom's get some time away from their kids to get a break, and get things done. I knew I had hit him HARD, the response was dead silence, then I said I have to go, I'm spreading mulch. (Another dig because that was something he always did, but I was perfectly capable of). I think it made him realize that I wasn't going to put up with his shenanigans and knew I would be ok without him.
Some days I look at him and think wow..i know his flaws, his hang ups and quirks. I thought that meant something but in actuality it was part of his escapism during his " affair" mow didn't really know him or know any of those things... If she had it would have killed the mood, lol.
But ya..its like wow! This is how I'm repaid for being there for him...
