Early morning pep talk

My morning conversation with my always tactful husband, before heading to my old office to meet with a bunch of co-workers from my past life:

Me: Seriously, I can not believe how big this zit is, how embarrassing.

Ben: Haha, your co-workers will think I beat you.

Silence.

Ben: You know, because it looks like you have a black eye.

Silence.

Me: So my zit is so big it looks like I have a black eye?

Silence.

Ben: Uh, no, its just because its so CLOSE to your eye. And big.

Silence.

Me: You suck.

Ben: Sorry.

Me: You think I'm not already feeling crappy about this huge zit on my face without being told it looks like a BLACK EYE?

Ben: Sorry.

Me: So its so big it looks like a black eye, huh?

Ben: Sorry.

Me: You really know how to make someone feel good about themselves.

Ben: Sorry.

Silence.

Ben: Besides your black eye, you look really pretty.

Silence.

Me: You suck.

Men never know the right thing to say. If it makes you feel any better he always made fun of my big lips and nose.
