You Too?

"Come sit with me a moment." Sweetie was calling me from his man cave, where he had gone to get his glass of wine to have with dinner. He keeps his wine in a mini fridge in there.

So in i went, to the sanctum sanctorum where i generally step lightly, grab a tool or put it away quickly, and don't look too closely at what he has or has left lying around.

He was sitting at his small table with an array of wine glasses in front of him. He started talking about work, leaned back, opened his mini fridge, and grabbed out his wine jug. Then he looked at the wine glasses in front of him, noted, "I need to wash these tonight," grabbed the nearest and peered inside. With a mild, "Ugh" as his only reaction, he then proceeded to pour in the wine and take a sip.

Now i think i know where the children get it. He still doesn't understand what was so funny that i burst out laughing, either.
