They Do Grow Up Like Their Mums

I'm sure you've heard the saying about daughters growing up to be like their mums, well it's true. Been invited out to my daughter and son in law for lunch on Sunday. (first lunch with them after their wedding and may I add in their newly decorated apartment).
Me, I eat almost anything so I really don't mind whats for lunch. How many times have our wonderful wives (I know it happens all over the world) so tenderly asked "what would you like for dinner" which I would normally reply "Anything". Then it starts... " How about a nice steak" I'd reply "Great Idea that would be lovely" ...... Then comes "or there's fish" ..... "No thanks steak would be super" ...... "There's pizza there if you don't want fish" .... "No darling honest steak will do" ....... It's about this stage that hunger seems to leave the body.
Back to the daughter .... she was on the phone last night organising the menu, I said "Anything would be lovely", the choice of starter "Prawn Cocktail, Soup or Deep Fried Cheese" all wonderful .. I logged onto MSN this morning and it started .... "Is Prawn Cocktail ok for starters" ..... Do they learn this sort of torture in their domestic science classes in girl's schools........
I'm expecting feedback on this post ....... Know what I mean ......
I'm well look after :)

In reply to this post: If men would give you a straight answer you would not need ask again. Giving them choice is a bad idea as it is too much for their little hamster (you know the one running about inside their skull) to cope with.

On the other hand you go to the trouble of making the meal for them to turn around and say "I would have rather had...."

Moral of the story is - YOU JUST CAN'T WIN!

Oh dear, did Grumpyhead touch a raw nerve with his post.
I agree with everything he said

maybe you should go on a liquid diet and that would sort the problem.

Just read what you think about 'grub-up time' and i agree about saying 'anything' when asked about food for a meal. The unfortunate thing is i dont get asked about steak.....i get 'WHICH BOX SHALL I OPEN AND CHUCK THE CONTENTS IN THE OVEN, ANIMAL'. Think the missus is trying to tell me something, don't you? So i have decided to stick to my high protein intake of vital fluids at the local hostelry, if you get my drift and when the young lady behind the bar asks 'what do you fancy' i am always polite and honest....maybe.
