Funny Conversation

In the last week or so I've noticed Michael using my laptop a few times. This wouldn't be a big deal except for the fact that he has his own laptop and typically it is sitting about five feet away from mine. Thus I don't understand why he uses mine. Yesterday the following conversation ensued:

Me: Why are you using my computer?

Michael (sounding annoyed): Because I can't print from mine. Why does it matter anyway.

Me: Because it is my laptop and yours is sitting right there.

Charlotte: Mommy we share in this family.

Me: Charlotte, Mommy's computer is like your Baby Caroline. There are some things we don't have to share.

At that point laughter erupted from all parties. But I still don't understand why my husband feels the need to use my computer when he has one and there is a desktop upstairs as well. To me it is *my* computer. I don't sit down with his and if I did I'm sure I would hear about it :) My computer and purse are about the only things at this point in my life that are just mine and apparently even those things aren't completely my own any more...

Love it - you 2 are a hoot! But I do have to side with you on this Jenn. Men need to know their boundaries! ;)
