Saturday evening my husband and I were driving home from the city. I turned to him and said, “Love you.”
He responded with an almost robotic, “Love you, too.”
I replied, “Wow, that was convincing.”
We were driving through a construction area and he was trying to figure out where the lanes were on the road, so he was more worried about not crashing into concrete dividers or other drivers than exchanging adorable pleasantries.
Jokingly, I told him his problem was that he didn’t love me. “Love would help you negotiate traffic.” I told him. Because, you know, love conquers all. Fortunately, he really does love me – anyone else would have pulled over and told me to walk for saying something that stupid.
What are some other examples that demonstrate the ridiculousness ofÂ the idea that “love conquers all”?
