If your lovely wife has just had 6 shots of tequila - don't tell her that she couldn't throw something and hit the broad side of a barn. Because she will be able to smack you with a bottle of nail polish remover from across the room.
Have you forgotten that this is the same chick that you dared to poke your eye out with a carrot?
For the record, I don't advocate spousal abuse. He likes it. Really.
