Domestic bliss…

…may not be the most familiar of things to the author of "Things my girlfriend and I have argued about". As he explains:

Combine utter, polar disagreement on everything, ever, with the fact that I am a text-book Only Child, and she is a violent psychopath, and we're warming up. Then factor in my being English while she is German, which not only makes each one of us personally and absolutely responsible for the history, and the social and cultural mores of our respective countries, but also opens up a whole field of sub-arguments grounded in grammatical and semantic disputes and, well, just try saying anything and walking away.

And then follows up with a long, and I mean long, list of examples.



Mil is a very nice guy - he contributed to a pre-blog web publication that I created several years ago. It is weird to see his book in WH Smith these days, but good to know that sometimes pleasant people get ahead, too.

Funny stuff, and very easy to relate to when you have just had a near-argument about foie bloody gras...
