Sounds a bit like my bride when she wants something done. It starts out with her saying "WE need to paint-repair-build-do whatever", which really means, "YOU" need to paint-repair-build-do whatever. It's been like this for thirty nine years and it still works for her.
Oh man, I do this A LOT nowadays! I've caught myself saying things like, "No, we're not thirsty, thanks" and answering for him when I don't mean to. ACK! Although I totally do what your wife does, but that's kind of on purpose. HA!
hahaha you almost gave him a heart attack
I think I gave him multiple heart attacks yesterday on the train on the way home from Bremen. HAHAHA
