My husband has a 40th class reunion this weekend, including a 'meet and greet' on Friday evening, and a more formal dinner and dance on Saturday.
He just told me he was put on the list to cook and clean 50 live crab for the Friday night event. This is held at a local golf course club house. I imagine the crab will be cooked and cleaned outside, then brought in to serve while still hot.
So this leaves him a smelly mess outside, and me on my own mingling with drink in hand an no husband (I'm a bit shy in larger gatherings). The crab has been donated by other classmates that are commercial fishermen, and since we are a seaside community and many classmates are coming from afar they will be looking forward to a taste of fresh crab.
I'm feeling quite peeved, and imagine he is as well (he just messaged me, and I am still at work). I would rather pay for someone to cook the crab, even at our own expense, so he can enjoy his party.
Am I right to feel ticked off?
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
