How I got back at my omniscient husband for always criticizing me.

Dear AmoMama,

I suppose we've all had those moments when our husbands or boyfriends tell us we don't do 'this' or 'that' like their dear saintly mothers, and that we will never achieve that supreme level of perfection.

My husband is a perfectionist, and a bit of a pain in the ass, to be honest. He has his good points, and I love him dearly but sometimes he drives me up the wall.

His birthday was coming up and I told him I was planning on a lovely family dinner and that I would be making his favorite lasagna.

He started grumbling that maybe I should order out since I'd yet to master boiling an egg, let alone make a lasagna as good as his mother's.

I'm a good cook, maybe not be a master chef, but I do ok, so his arrogance just pushed me over the edge.

I called his mother who knows her son pretty well (she says he is just like his late father) and asked her for her help in teaching the man a lesson.

She made her usual (very delicious) lasagne, and I served it as my own. I dished up, and immediately my husband wrinkled up his nose saying it didn't smell right, something was missing.

He took the first bite and made this revolted choking sound, and said it was awful, disgusting. My mother-in-law winked at me and said: "Don't you like the lasagne?" and he said, "I can only eat yours!"

That lovely woman said, "But it is mine, I made it myself..." He went blood red, choked on that lasagna and we laughed until we cried.

He has not criticised anything I set before him since, and I think he never will.
