The scene possibly started like so: A conversation about plans. Plans with the guys. Plans without the woman.
Him: "Honey, I am going to (insert name of sports bar or best guy-pal's house) to watch the (insert sporting event name here) with the guys. I'll probably be gone all afternoon/evening, so don't wait for me."
Him: "Uh, yeah now."
Her: (in a slightly pouty, but semi normal voice) "But I thought we were going to (insert some form of chick based activity - i.e. watching The Notebook for the 100th time)."
Him: "Honey, this is a really important game. If (insert name of fantasy football quarterback pick) gets 3 TD's my fantasy football team moves into the league championships and I could totally kick a$$ this year."
Her: (in a more pouty, but still normal tone) "So you would rather sit in a room with a bunch of guys, drinking beer and watching a game instead of spending the afternoon with me?"
*****DANGER****** Men, this is the most critical moment of your life! I guarantee you that every instinct in your body is going to be crying out for the beer, buds, and ball you so richly want. Don't do it! Those four hours are not worth what is coming next. And here is where that missing part could help save you hours of misery.
Him: "Baby, you know I love you. I'll be back right after the game and then we can spend all night together. (Insert promises of movie, roses, back rubs, whatever you think you will have to give, in order to get the h*ll out of the house in the next ten minutes)"
Her: "O.K. Fine."
DING!!! DING!!!! DING!!!! And men, with those two words, she has just sealed your fate in the world of payback-is-a-b*tch. Because everything is most definitely NOT fine and you are blissfully unaware that your fate has now been sealed. All this could have been avoided had you just had the "Woman Lie Detector" installed. She would have said "Fine" and you would have been beeping like a blinged out rap artist in a metal detector at that lie. Thereby allowing you the time to find a successful comeback that would have allowed you to watch the game and still make the little woman happy. As to what that comeback might be, heaven only knows.
