When To Not Be Right

I have always thought the perfect country song would be sung from the point of view of a man who is in an argument with his woman but decides to let it go in the interests of making sure he gets sex that evening. It would be called "I'd Rather Be Naked (Than Right)." That said, I can't write a tune to save my life, and I am generally pretty lazy even with something as easy to pen lyrics to as this would be (both "turn out the light" and "you win this fight" are natural rhymes for the chorus) so it will remain yet another idea I allow to vanish into the ether, as almost everything in my mind will someday do. In any event, if you would rather be effective than right, here's some advice.

So the moral is don't question your husband and he won't leave you?

@hershmire That's certainly better than having an open line of communication with your spouse. There's obviously no way the husband could have said, "Honey, when you correct every little detail in my stories, I feel belittled and it makes me feel bad. Could you maybe tone it down?" There's no way THAT would've worked.

That article was awful. This post is awesome, I want to hear that song.

I'd've thought the #MY ABANDONED PROJECTS tag would've been used many times ere now.

Come on Alex, David Allan Coe identified the perfect country song in "You Never Even Called Me By My Name": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAOVRkSCWmg
