A spousal interaction:
MB: *tugs VBG's ponytail*
VBG: Please stop pulling my hair.
VBG: Stop pulling my hair!
MB: *tug tug tug*
VBG: Dude. Stop it, or I'll punch you.
MB: *tug tug tug tug*
VBG: I mean it.
MB: *tug tug tug tug tug*
VBG: *punches MB in the shoulder*
VBG: I warned you to stop pulling my hair, didn't I?
MB: But I like you.
VBG: Honey, you're twenty-five. You can just tell me I'm pretty.
This cannot be normal.
Normal may be highly overrated.
