worst roommate ever

2 May

Some of you may not know this, but Tyler and I have a roommate. That roommate’s name is Sam. Sam is imaginary.

We invented Sam one day after something I said sounded like the name Sam and Tyler thought it would be funny if we had an imaginary third roommate that we yelled to in the other room for no reason. “Sam! Do you want some wine?” “Sam! Can you turn that down?” “Sam? Are you asleep?”

Then we had what I believe to be a revolutionary couples therapy idea: We started blaming things on Sam.

For example, Sam often forgets to unpack his lunch bag and put the ice pack back in the freezer for the next day. I complain to Tyler about this and we share a head shake and a “fricken Sam!”

Or like today, Tyler shared with me that Sam forgot to put the cilantro back in the fridge when she was done making her lunch. Fricken Sam!

It’s us against a common enemy – and there is no nagging and no apologizing for these little household annoyances. It’s awesome.

Helpful for avoiding these types of situations.
