and of course by ‘that time’ it means something David would prefer to put off until the middle of next month if only I would quit nagging and something I would have had done by the middle of last month if it was up to me – notice the Mars/ Venus thing showing up there?!
In days of yore when you still did all your tax forms by hand, filling them out was clearly my domain – all David had to do was sign the finished article. Once Turbo Tax arrived on the scene though, everything changed …….. there’s something about being able to play with the inputted numbers and see how it changes the final figure that the IRS owes you or vice versa that definitely appeals to his gender. It doesn’t hurt that he can download everything and have Turbo Tax put it in the right place and do all the calculations either. Of course yours truly is still on call for any actual paperwork required – it’s David’s one chance to play office and he milks it for all he can……………. “Do WE have this piece of paperwork?” or ” Did WE get anything from………” ‘ WE’ indeed, funny guy. Oh you just sit there sweetie, I’ll get it for you, want
arsenic, oops….. I mean sugar with that?
At least today the sun shone so I skipped out on him earlier to get some outdoor exercise and it’s a racquetball night so now he’s gone for a few hours ………………we might yet get this done without killing each other! Not of course that we can actually file them when they’re done anyway – you know he’ll need to ‘think’ about them for another couple of weeks. Makes sense, after all you wouldn’t want him to forget some big donation he made to something really worthwhile…………………. what??? ; )
