So when I asked him by text to say something nice as I'd had a crap day, he replied:
"Can't wait for a lovely Friday night"
We're out with another couple that night (is my company THAT amazing?!)
Let's try again: "Say something nice about ME"
"You should do the skeleton dance! Wiggle wiggle"
What the...............? (Drugs? Does he do drugs in my absence? Why am I not included in this drug taking??)
I stopped and Googled the skeleton dance. I'm not doing that.
I give up. I should have learned never to interrupt him babysitting his nephews and never to assume he'd learn how to compliment me.
I'll do it instead: I'm fit.
