I had lunch with my fiancee today, which is good and bad. Good because she for some reason is convinced she wants to marry me. Bad because she always wants to split things.
She has this idea that eating an entire cheesesteak sando and french fries in the middle of the day is somehow not conducive to a productive afternoon. So why not split?
I tend to agree -- right up until the point when I finish my half of the cheesesteak and want nothing more than to stab her with a particularly crisp french fry until she relinquishes the second half of the sandwich.
Instead I just sulk. The question is: What establishment's cheesesteak left me sulking today?
