Newlywed Moment of the Day

Me: Honey, can you tell me how to light the grill so I can get dinner going before you get home?

B: (pause)

Me: I can do it.

B: Ok, go outside.

Me: Check.

B: Take the cover off.

Me: Already did that, and moved the grill away from the house.

B: What? Ok. Open the propane tank to the left.

Me: Ok.

B: Turn the dial to "start."

Me: Check.

B: Now press the ignition switch.

Me: What? No, wait.

B: What's wrong?

Me: What's it going to do?

B: What do you mean?

Me: I mean, is it going to flare up or make a noise or anything? I want to be prepared.

B: No, sweetie, just push it.

Me: Now?

B: Well, the gas is flowing, so yes.

Me: .... Hey! It worked! And I still have my eyebrows!

B: I'm coming home now.
