We had just parked the car and I thought I would keep the sassy level up by walking up ahead. I thought this would give him a chance to check me out. I had just finished this thought when I heard him make a hissing sound. I looked back and said "Does that ever work with girls?" He looked at me confused and said "I was hissing at the cat". I looked down and there it was crossing between us.
I was so embarrassed, I tried to laugh it off. He, on the other hand, was laughing so hard he cried. Eventually I got over it, and I'm happy to say we're still together. Now, every time there's a case of misplaced flattery we call it a "cat moment". The lesson: make sure he's flirting if you're going to call him out on it.
