I don't feel comfortable around you; where's my money?
Sir Handsome (DH) took Princess (SD15) to lunch yesterday to spend one on one time like she requested. I wasn't there; everything I'm about to recount is secondhand from Sir Handsome's mouth. I quoted as much as I can but paraphrased the rest. Apparently, Princess came out swinging as soon as they sat down.
Princess: Why didn't you come visit me when I was in California?
Sir: I tried to prevent you going there in the first place because it's so far away, remember? You know I can't skip work and it's expensive to fly there; I don't have the airline miles your Mom has built up. Not to mention that you kept telling me you hated me and didn't want to talk to me.
Princess: You should have come out for therapy. I'm not the only one who needs to work on stuff, you know.
Sir: We did therapy over Skype, remember? You cut the sessions short because you didn't want to talk to me anymore. And when I called to talk you couldn't get off the phone fast enough.
Princess: I don't feel comfortable around you. That's why I didn't want to come to dinner last night.
Sir: You said you canceled dinner because you wanted to spend one on one time with me before you saw the family together.
Princess: [mumbles uncomfortably and picks at her hair] Did you bring my Christmas present?
Sir: Shoot, I forgot. How about I bring it when I pick you up for your therapy appt tomorrow? And if you really want me to work on stuff, how about we talk to your therapist tomorrow about setting up a family session with you and me? Which doctor are you seeing tomorrow?
Princess: ok... I guess. Seeing Doc X.
Sir: Doc X? Right before you left for CA you said she was stupid and that you'd stopped telling her things because she was stupid.
Sir: Does this mean you've changed your mind about Doc X?
Sir: What made you change your mind?
Princess: I don't know.
[food comes, small talk is made]
Princess: After lunch, will you take me to get my nose pierced? You can take it out of my Christmas money.
Sir: No. I don't think that's a good idea right now.
And before any of you ask, no, Princess did not so much as make a Xmas card for Sir Handsome.
