It's a special He Blogs/She Blogs today. If you follow HBSB and remember the battle royale to find a He to Petra's She, you'll remember Petra decided to give all the competitors a chance to guest post every once and a while. Today is the first once of those whiles. In the blue corner, the insightful and entertaining Christopher of Cajoh. In the pink corner over at Petra's, Jen of Steenky Bee. Jen's become a bit of a recluse, but back when we used to run guns in South America... er, never mind. Here's Cajoh.
I would like to thank Petra and the Captain for allowing me the opportunity to guest post today. Hopefully I can do the Captain proud. So, without further ado— here are my answers:

Talk about the biggest fight you had over the dumbest thing EVER. (it's always the stupid fights that get big)
One would think that there are dumb things that every couple is expected to fight over. I never see myself fighting over something like how the socks are folded, or if the toothbrush is left out. I guess my wife and I tend to fight over more personal things like money, or if I am paying attention enough when she's talking to me. I think that we may be disappointed in things each other does, but we never come to blows over it.
Here is my question--in terms of movies, do you fake it? Do you pretend that you want to see Fried Green Harry Met Sally While You Were Sleeping with your girlfriend/wife/escort? Or do you announce that it's torture for you and that she really owes you? And Petra, do you expect your husband to put up with chick flicks? Or do you go see them with your friends and leave him alone?
Call me crazy better yet, don't— I have enough nicknames as it is… but I like a lot of the so called "chick flicks". I can't say much for ditching my wife to go see a flick with my buds, since both my wife and I go to all movies together— but I can relate when it comes to particular television shows. There are many shows that my wife and I watch together— then there are some shows that the other does not prefer to watch. I know if I am watching a show that my wife does not like all that well, she will ignore the movie and do other things. If there is a show on that I do not like, I usually try to stay out of respect but often times I just leave the room going upstairs and taking a bath is more like it.

When your visiting you or your spouses family for a week and your spouse asks you if you wanna 'get it on' cause everyone's sleeping, what would YOU say?
I think that what we are trying to see is if we would take caution to the wind if we were supposed to be on our best behavior. It probably all depends. It depends on if those people who are sleeping are light sleepers and are either in the same room as us, or are on the other side of the wall. It depends on if we know that we will not be interrupted, or feel self conscious because we are not in our own bedroom.
So— taking all of that into consideration… "Yes"! Next question…

So how do you deal when the much-adored sibling is a complete asshat?
Let me stick that babelfish in my ear… ahh, that's better.
I am guessing that this question should be phrased: "So how do you deal with the much-adored sibling who is a complete asshole?"
I must admit that none of my wife's nor my own siblings fit that description— I believe that we are all quite civil with each other and don't have to worry about the "black sheep" of the family and how to deal with them.
Now, if you haven't done so already— go over to Petra's Blog to find out what Jen from Steenky Bee has to say.
So there you go. Now go off to Petra's and check out Steenky Bee's responses. And remember to leave us some questions so we have something to talk about next week. Oh, and if you haven't entered your name yet, go enter my adult contest.
