Actual conversations with Egyptian Husband...

EH: I can't eat anymore meat! You have been making meat every night and I can't take it anymore! Hilaus. I can't eat anymore meat.

So, I make a vegetarian iftar the next day. Baba Ganoush, stuffed peppers, veggie rice, salad and warm bread.

UL: (looking at EH's empty plate) Do you want another pepper or something?

EH: No, what kind of meat did you make?

UL: Uhhh, you said you couldn't eat anymore meat.

EH: You didn't make any meat?

UL: No.

EH: Could you do a steak for me quick?

Salam alaikoum
I get that, but with salt...or olive the next day i put neither...then I get, "Honey, where's the salt...honey, where's the olive oil..."
Or, my personal favorite, when he says that during Ramadan he wants to eat healthy, so no more cookies. Yeah ok cookie monster.

Asalamalaykom Cncz,

I get told that my husband doesn't eat sweets. I shouldn't buy them and waste money. And then, when I've brought home a leftover sweet from the masjid's ifar, it magically disappears in the night. Isn't that funny? LOL

Vaguely familiar conversation for me too! Sometimes my hubby sleeps sitting up in bed cause his stomach hurts him from eating too much meat. You gotta be kidding? Why would anyone torture themselves like that???
