The Packed Lunch
Me: I made you a packed lunch for our day out today.
The missus: Oh, that's nice dear. What have you made for me?
Me: Firstly, a cheese sandwich.
The missus: I hate cheese. I've never eaten a cheese sandwich the entire time we've been together.
Me: Right. Ah. Well, I've also brought you a packet of crisps.
The missus: I never eat crisps. I don't even like crisps. Have you ever seen me eat a packet of crisps?
Me: Errr. Hmm. Ok. I also brought sausage rolls?
The missus: I _despise_ sausage rolls. Have you not been paying attention?
