In the early days of our relationship, before I had molded himself to my ways, he was often cross with me. I interrupt. And he absolutely hates anyone finishing his sentences.
“But that made me think of something and I had to tell you before I forgot”
If I (often) know what he is going to say and say it first, he says (pompously – well, he was a professor):
“If I could be allowed to finish what I was going to say” and then he repeats what I just said.
If I interrupt, and then ask him what he was going to, he says “nothing.”
I always mean to give him his own back, but when the time comes I’ve forgotten. Anyway, that’s not me.
And now we both have adjusted a bit; well, one does after 28 happy years, doesn’t one?
