Susan Carland wants to nominate herself for Wife of the Year in the category of “super-human restraint and angelic forbearance” and we are ready to second that.
The celebrated academic and feminist posted to Instagram to remind us all that she and her husband – Waleed Aly, host of The Project and speaker of thoughts, are just like us, and have nights when ‘looking’ for the remote turns into a frantic search and rescue mission, all of which could have been avoided had someone properly checked the drawer.
But hey, there’s no need to gloat.
Well maybe a little bit of gloating.
Any fair assessment would concur I deserve a Wife Of The Year parade and scholarship set up in my name for this example of super-human restraint and angelic forbearance. I wasn’t the one to first point out that the remote we searched for late last night (with me getting increasingly snappy and frustrated ) was WHERE HE HAD IN FACT “LOOKED”. (It’s allowed to raise it once the other person does, to highlight one’s magnanimity) ???? UPDATED TO ADD: female/male like ratio – 200/1 Laydeez, you get it
In a casual text exchange between her and Waleed, Susan takes the high road to zen-levels of patience, and self-control where many would have faltered and jumped ship in light of the glorious ‘I told you so!’ opportunity that was just there, waiting to be said.
