To say that my boyfriend has a bit of a competetive nature would be a huge understatement. He seriously goes to extremes. For instance, I started playing the Punch Buggy game with him. I got him once, and it was "on". For every one, he gets 20. The dude is relentless.
So the other night when we were laying down to go to sleep, he said he felt like a bug or two was crawling in him. I thought I would be funny and gently brushed my fingertip on his back. He slapped the spot that I brushed and I laughed and immediately said it was me. "Payback's a bitch" he let me know. The nights that followed were full of torturous games of putting lint and fuzzy things on me, causing me to hit and slap myself while I was trying to sleep. Finally, I respond to him with his own words. "Payback's a bitch". His reaction to that? If I even touch him once, he is going to find the biggest ugliest spider he can find and put it on me, knowing my horrible fear of spiders. He thinks that is plently fair. I told him he has to promise he would never do that. He said he can't because that is what would have to happen next time.
Tell me, how is this playing fair? Anyone? Anyone?
