One word

He said this morning, "Do you want to start the day with a funny joke?" with a volume too loud for first thing in the morning.

I looked at him and said, "Sure!" in the same volume he came in with.

"What." he said same volume.

"What." I said same volume.

He looked at me like I had slapped him and walked away like a spanked puppy.

Response, response, assumptions, bad feelings.
