In the sight of the husband: "You have got to be kidding me! We have 7 more fucking months!" Wife: "What was that?" "Nothing, dear. I love you... Please dont hurt me..." All kidding aside, op must really love his wife, and is probably trying really hard. I give a big round of applause for Op.
Dafuq? I still think that's crazy considering your wife is a hormonal bomb because she is pregnant. Can't blame her though.
I recently discovered a kind of 'disease' where the people who have it connect letters and/or numbers with colours. Let me Google it... Synesthesia, that's the one.
Also Synesthesia. There's over a hundred different types; it's a cross-wiring of any two 'senses'? The gender form is a muted form of personification synesthesia, in which various letters/numbers have personalities. The colour one is grapheme->colour, one of the more common forms.
It has to do with two parts of the brain being "connected". When you see a number or letter, the part of the brain that responds to color, or sound, also responds. This causes numbers and letters to have a "color". Some people also "feel" when they hear music. No one knows what causes it, it just happens to some people.
a) omg everyone stop calling it a disease for fuck's sake. words have meanings. b) actually they've done quite a few studies on it and found that the reactions are completely consistent, researchers are pretty much in agreement that even if they can't find exactly what causes it or see it in brain scans it's definitely real. c) it's really not that trippy. it's just there. absolutely nothing like walking around on an acid trip or being psychotic.
Yes, although I don't believe it's a disease, it's just your brain has somehow coming to associations. Granted it is an abnormality but I don't know that it's caused by anything or is adverse in any way. You can also make associations with sounds, textures, feelings, vibes, concepts, shapes even I bet... I have it, for example A is red, B is blue, and C is cyan, 1 is white, 2 is blue, and 3 is green.
I can't blame her for disliking the nane... Tabitha sounds like a cat's name, not a human's. If it is a human's name it sounds like it would belong to a snarky Gothic chick.
As a woman I feel really sorry for men who have to put up with it knowing full well my boyfriend will have to one day. It's not even like you men do anything wrong (apart from suggest cat names perhaps). Good luck with mother and baby op :)
