The backstory: It's the usual wide-ranging discussion that KO and I have on the phone, while cleaning our kitchens and telling our children, "Hey, I'm on the phone" (because the phone against our ear is not evidence enough of that fact):
Me: I pretty much prefer to pay when I'm on a date.
KO: That strikes me as a control thing for you.
Me (snidely): Me? Control issues? Never a problem for me, even after the partner debunked.
KO: This is where you just need to say "takes one to know one."
Me: Damn, wish I'd thought of that. That's going on the blog.
KO: It figures.
