Default Wise words from DH

I'm sure everyone knows what not to say when someone asks "does this skirt make me look fat?" Here's the opposite -

So, I tried on a new dress, size ten (I was 16 for a while!), cotton knit, pretty short and a little clingy. DH said "wow" and I said "yes, this makes me look thin", he said "no, I think it's your workouts that make you look thin!"

Actually if a guy is smart he'll just ignore this question as there is no correct way to answer it. If he says "no" then he's accused of lying because his "tone" was not emphatic enough, and if he says "yes" he's on hook as well even though he was honest. It's a loaded question, like playing Russian Roulette, only the guy knows there's a round in the chamber for sure.


Does this skirt make me look fat?
