The correct answer is something along the lines of, "I was looking at my beautiful wife." Then just stick to your guns. She may laugh and inform you that she has a mirror and knows better, but the truth is, she wants you to keep up the lovely ruse. My husband has nearly convinced me that his perception of me is stuck in a two decades old memory and he is literally not capable of seeing me objectively. I'm okay with that. Maybe I'll even toss the dam mirror...I ignored her when she said it. The WW refuses to allow me to remain silent on these things. When I said nothing I got a “well, what’s your thoughts? Have you nothing to say?”
I was forced to say something.
