-Do something romantic, buy her flowers or make her dinner or let her go shopping (shopping highly reccomended). It'll buy you 30 minutes at most, but hey - it's worth it.
-Sit her down with you, act sad and say "why are you so mad at me?" with large, teary puppy-eyes. It might work.
-Hugs and a calm, cheery voice - no matter what she just shouted at you. For instance, in mornings when she gets up and goes "grrrrr" right in your face, you at once put up a big smile and say "good morning! Slept well? Want me to make you breakfast?". If you had a tail, you'd wag it - that kind of approach.
-Don't watch football. Don't pay attention to the TV at all. Actually, don't pay attention to ANYTHING but her. And it's the nice kind of attention we're on about here.
-Say "poor, poor you" when she complains and then make her a hot cup of tea/chocolate and wrap her in a blanket. Rent a movie, too. As long as she pays attention to the movie (romantic comedy, mind you) you're safe. But watch it with her and look like you're interested - only time it's allowed to pay full attention to the TV.
-Buy her chocolate and ice cream. Lots of it! Don't ever, ever, ever say that she should perhaps limit the use of sweets.
- Also, don't you EVER say "what's up with you, it's THAT time of month again?". Just don't, especially not if it IS that time of month again.
Or simply make up an excuse as to why you just can't be home, and leave.
If God intended us to fly, he'd make it easier to get to the airport.
