When Scott Promises To Be Stupid, He Delivers

Monday night, I posted on my Facebook page mostly because Scott said it, and I laughed.

Then Scott leapt in the air and called himself my muse.

But that wasn’t the stupid part.

As we cleaned up dinner, I asked: Why are you still wearing your shoes? You’ve been home for an hour.

Scott looked at his shoes and looked at me.

Me: Are you preparing for some sort of invasion? Ready to go at any moment?

Scott: You know me! I got one foot in this relationship and one foot out the door.

{dead silence}

{continued killing of the silence}

Me: What is wrong with you? Who says that as a joke?

Then I glance at the clock, pat him on the shoulder and said: At least you were right about being stupid in less than 30 minutes.

He’s such a giver.

Scott would like to add…

I don’t really know where that joke came from – things just come out of my mouth sometimes.  It’s what makes me such an effective muse.  I love my wife and couldn’t imagine being in a better relationship. I also know that too many of you would love to take my place… Yes, I’m talking to you.

She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Once Robby basically told me the dog was better looking than me. It’s a long story, but I still bring it up when I need the ammunition.

  2. My husband is frequently my muse on my blog.
    And he doesn’t know it.
    Mostly because the jerk doesn’t read my blog because according to him “I already know what happens in our house. Pft.”

  3. I hope you held that against him for a good while. “Remember when you said… the dishes need to be washed.” “Remember when you said… my car needs gas.” “Remember when you said… I’m going for a pedicure.”
    Milk it baby!

  4. If a tree fell in the forest and there was no one to hear it, would it make a sound? We could debate that. But if a man were alone in the forest would he be wrong? Of course he’s wrong and he’d better have a good reason to be in the forest.

    Hang in there Scott. Been there, bought the shirt.
