Overheard. Actually Said. By Me. Mostly.

Someone once commented that they would like to be a fly on our wall. So here are some of my favorite two-ish liners. Also we have a fly swatter. SO LAUGH.

I start to tell Scott a story WHERE I WIN. His eyebrows go up.

Me: If you don’t put those condescending eyebrows away…

Scott places hands over eyebrows: Go on with your very interesting story.
Scott glancing at himself (not a new phenomenon): I’m so studly.

{short pause as he takes in my morning-hate glare}

S: It must be doubly frustrating to be so attracted to someone who is so annoying.
Me: Don’t hate me because I’m awesome.

Scott: That’s not why I hate you.
Scott texts me: We need an opar.

Me: And a dictionary.
Me in a voicemail to Scott: I’m so tired and I think people suck.

Scott (many hours later}: I wasn’t really motivated to call back.
Scott: Oops. I spilled water.

E: Alright, you get the blue towel and clean it up, and I’ll poop.

Okay so I got that last one as the text. And responded: Ha! That convo could’ve gone either way.

I clearly wasn’t the funny one that day.

PS. I made the photo booth style picture with Picnik. It’s also how I made my blog button. They aren’t paying me to say this. But you can if you’re bored. Or rich. Mostly if you’re rich. Contact me Richie Rich. Oh and in the third picture? I look like one hot zombie. Seriously.

Love your hairstyle! I have ALWAYS wanted to wear bangs.

Not for those of the curly persuasion, tho.

And yes, your man needs a dictionary, but you need an “opar” even more!
Trust me on this one. Life will never be the same.

That you remember these conversations to tell them here is amazing. Mostly my convos with my hubs (who, despite what this would have you believe, I adore) just roll out of my head.

My favorite is “opar.” Laughing my head off before 7am. You always bring it, girl.

You know, that last one really could’ve gone either way. It’s true. Which makes it funny.

Thanks for letting me be a fly. Love this stint only when I’m at your place. I’ll even risk the swatter. :)

I’m am going to write some of those lines down and use them on my unsuspecting husband.

My husband and I giggled over these today. They were all funny.

Sounds like conversations with my teens. Hubby rarely plays. Largely because he never wears his hearing aids.

Put away your swatter ’cause I’m laughing my ass off over here. :D


Was he talking Tarzan or the Office of Policy Analysis and Research or, hopefully, the plant?

Although, I’d love to have my very own Office of Policy Analysis and Research.

You always have the funniest blog posts on days I need a giggle the most. LOVE that you two are such silly stinkers if not goobery at times. :o) We need to vacay together.

Ha! These pics are really cute. Your house sounds like my house. Only with less dogs barking in the background.

Almost missed the poop- way to sneak it in at the last minute! Can’t have a day (uh, hour) without poop around here.

Hil.a.rious! I did laugh. A lot. No fly swatter.


soccermom August 24, 2010 16

I think its great that you two can laugh and have fun together.

I am working on that kind of relationship with my sportsman. but he is a very analytical type of person. geez

How fun is that? NOT


Dana August 24, 2010 17


I love when couples have that quick verbal spar thing going on. It’s one of my favourite things about my favourite couples. I just realized how creepy that sounds….


Erin I'm Gonna Kill Him August 25, 2010 18

You gotta laugh with and at each other…to keep from crying. You do seem well matched!


Meg December 31, 2010 19
