It's the weekend so I thought I'd try something fun and different. Several of you have submitted wonderful questions about important issues in your lives, which I appreciate very much. (And I have some interesting topics lined up for the next few days, so stay tuned.) Today, though, I want to turn the tables and ask your opinion on an issue of my choosing.
Dear Faithful Reader,
Does your spouse ever ask you a question that makes you groan inside? ...or maybe even outside? You know what I'm talking about, where you just want to say, "I wish you wouldn't ask me that!"
I sometimes hear about "no-win" questions, where all possible answers seem laden with problems. Consider this one: "Honey, does this dress make me look chunky?"
How might a husband respond? Let's try, "Yes, I'm afraid it does."
Uhhh ... no. That's a complete wash-out on so many levels. So how about:
"No, of course it doesn't make you look chunky."
"Oh you wouldn't tell me even if it did."
So I'd like to know: What question / request do you hate hearing from your spouse?

Comments are probably preferable for this one (rather than emails), since I'm sure everyone would like to see the responses. As a small perk, I'll pick my favorite response and feature it in a post of its own, with a link back to the winner's blog.
