The phrase “better half” tends to be used by men referring to women (I look forward to being corrected on this), and is usually a kind of self-deprecating acknowledgement of women’s wisdom.
I’m the first to note Mrs M’s ability to organise social occasions, advise on any social interaction and – well, let’s just say she’s the boss.
However, there are certain things that I am better at doing. The main one is working out exactly how much time it will take to get from one place to another (and another, and another, on the same day) and against my Better Half’s optimism, suggesting an alternative. For example, just visiting/going to ONE event. Because every occasion/event involves chat/discussion/talk/gossip. Which means that we will be late for the NEXT thing.
What’s your experience?
