I hate my friend's husband. He's a nice guy and a great husband, but he always needs to be the center of attention. At parties he interrupts and talks over other conversations until somebody listens to him. Then he corners that person with his inane, incessant talking. He doesn't get the hint if you look bored or don't respond. If you change the subject, he'll direct it back to himself. I love my friend but might have to end our friendship because she doesn't want to go anywhere without her husband. She and I haven't hung out by ourselves in five years. She always invites me to do stuff, but often I say no because secretly I can't put up with him anymore. We all went to a pub a few weeks ago and he lectured me for ten minutes about running, even though I'm a marathon runner (he's not) I had to clench my teeth to keep from screaming at him. Next time it happens, I might totally lose my shit. Then I'll probably lose my friend anyway.
