And He Doesn't Even Know How to Turn on Our Computer...

A convo between hubby and I this past weekend...


The scene:

Hubby is on top of the scaffolding painting and I am painting underneath the ladder which is part way underneath the scaffolding...(don't ask)

ME: "Wouldn't it be funny if the scaffolding collapsed and fell on this ladder, and then the ladder collapsed, fell on top of me and killed me? What a story you'd have to tell when people would ask you how your wife died."

HUBBY: (with a smirk) "Yeah..."

SHORT PAUSE

"...and then I'd blog about it."


The paint fumes are gettin' to us people!

Oh Joy, that just struck my dry sense of humor to the bone! I thought the blog part was so funny. I think these men secretly love our blogs, don't you? Good luck with your painting!

Hilarious! Step slowly away from the paint cans....Back away, drop the brush, and get some fresh air! hehee :) Your hubby sounds just like mine.....I told him the story, (he's in the studio right now watching a DVD while I scrapbook) and he chuckled a bit, then said "Yeah, and if that happened to you I'd try to keep a straight face at the Wake".........WHAT????
Men...Can't live without em.

hahaha! It's good you blogged before it all happens! It reminds me of a discussion between my landlord and landlady:
He: When its war again I will first burn up your mahogany chest and then your antique desk and then (he just sums up all her favorite possesions).
She; (with triumph in her voice) I will use my electric blanket to warm me up!
Ciao!

Funny how when things happen we think about telling our Blogland friends. I think maybe we are addicted to blogging!!

Oh Joy, that IS funny! It's all about blogging these days, isn't it?? Glad you are safe, and besides a stiff neck and paint in your hair, you ARE, right??

Laughed out loud... literally!

Your husband sounds as tech literate as my husband. When Mr Warren learned you had to get money from ATM machines in increments of $20, he literally stood there and took out $200 in 10 transactions ($20 at a time)! Oy!
