I absolutely HATE getting this answer to the question "What do you want for dinner?"--
"What do YOU want?"
Seriously? After 33 years, doesn't he know that that is NOT the answer?
But I had no idea that it wasn't just us. A new survey says the average American couple spends 132 HOURS every year deciding what to eat.
Let's do the math:
132 hours per year equals about 21 minutes per day
That's 5.5 days a year
So by your 50th anniversary, you've spent 275 whole days trying to figure out what's for dinner.

Me: What do you want for dinner?
Her: I dunno, you pick.
Her: I had pizza for lunch.
Her: I'm not in the mood for Thai.
Me: OK, what DO you want?
Her: I told you - you pick.
Only 13% of couples say the "what do you want for dinner" question is not a problem for them.
I think they may be lying.
The question "what do you want for dinner" is legit a life or death situation type of question. pic.twitter.com/2ukHzpiFVc— javier escobar_1999 (@javierescobar19) December 1, 2017
So I figure Ray and I have already wasted over 180 days on this question.
BTW, this is not a picture of us... it's just how I feel right now. Because I know what's facing me on the way home.
What do you want for dinner? What do you want? Argghhhhhhhh.
