My Wife's Nagging and Peer Pressure Landed us Here

My wife's nagging and peer pressure got us here

It was January, the first chill wind of the year, and in one of its chill nights of last year, our neighbor's gleaming new car rolled into his driveway, triggering a chain reaction of events that would shake our peaceful existence in our quiet street.

My wife, ever the catalyst, jolts me awake in the middle of the night. In her words, "Isn't he a man, just like you?" She hisses, eyes narrowed at the driveway next door.

"Does living next door mean you have to breathe the same air, wear the same clothes? Or is buying a car a mandate for all men?" I thought 💭🤔 to myself.

But I know my wife, she's the abitoshaker and the overdo of the neighborhood.

"Is he not a man like you? Or is he better than you? You must show them that you are better than him!" with her voice piercing the cold night.

I angrily hurried back to a forced fake sleep, with a sigh, facing the other side of the bed, a weary gust of resignation, carring the weight of unspoken arguments. 

And that's how my domestic peace evaporated, faster than a puddle on a hot day. 

Our relentless campaign started, with my wife at the helm, goading me to match our neighbor's every move. 

I succumbed to the pressure, purchasing a car against my better judgment. But that was only the beginning.

Three months later, our neighbor acquired a coveted plot of land just some few walks opposite our rented appament, and my wife's fervor reignited. My relentless auctioneer, hammers home the point with each passing day. 

"You must do the same!" she insisted, her resolve unyielding. I yielded, buying a piece of land in the same street to placate her.

The neighbor's next move? 

Yeah, it was the commencing of the construction on his new property. Predictably, my wife would not rest until I followed suit. And so, I started making plans to build. My resistance worn down by her unyielding enthusiasm.

By the time the neighbour's foundation is laid, mine is a hastily sketched plan on a dusty napkin. And the drag race continues...

But then, the unthinkable happened. 

It was like a scene straight out of a fever dream. We were standing right in front of our old rented apartment when a moving truck pulls up next door, disgorging furniture, boxes, and… a woman. 

Not just any woman, mind you, I need to be specific here. It's a radiant woman, younger, with laughter ringing in her wake. My wife, a Cheshire cat with a mischievous grin, eyes me expectantly.

It seems our neighbor just welcomed a second wife into his brand new household, I murmured, smiling in my mind 😁

As I ponder the implications, a mischievous thought creeps into my mind... 

A cold sweat prickles my skin. Are we playing the same game here? Is this the neighbour's audacious, competitive move, or the start of something altogether more… unsettling? 

My mind races, possibilities both thrilling and terrifying flickering across the screen. 

One thing's for sure – life on our quiet street just got a whole lot more interesting. And a little bit… polygamous?

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? 😉 

The gauntlet has been thrown, shouldn't I succumb to the pressure once more? Even though, surprisingly, my wife seems to have lost her voices 😂, and shes now dumb and deaf at the same time 🤣
