lol i got boozed up at brunch, saw your post, lulzed heartily, and passed out.
To explain -- at the pinnacle of his career, my dad was the chief executive hotshot, just like you, who made all the big decisions at work. But when it came to home matters, my mom was and is always in the driver's seat with the power to veto anything my dad wants, suggest, or decides upon. And veto many a decision she did/does! She's wise beyond her years and she knows it, my dad knows it, we all know it. So he always defers to her peacefully and gracefully because, well, business decision-making logic doesn't always apply at the home. It also did wonders for tempering his big ego, if I must say.
But yeah, just found it endearing as it reminded me of my parents. Anyway, carry on with your conversation, gents. Sorry to interrupt.
