Her: I just came back from a long weekend. (bitterly) Though there were kids to look after, so not much of a weekend.
Me: I like the man's way of looking after kids. Point outside and say "go run the piss outta yourselves". Then grab a beer and watch rugby.
Her: Yeah. (envious)
Me: Of course, that's just the maaan's way. (teasing)
Me: And if you don't like it. Well. Fuck you too! (mock offended)
You can say damn near anything if you do it in the right tone of voice.
Of course, remember, to a woman - watching over children is haaard. Even if they've just got toddlers, and they've called up a female friend with another toddler, and they're sitting outside in the grass having a jawfest while the toddler is playing.
It's. So. Haaaaaard.
