Not Again!

I am particularly easily amused by the differences in the way the genders interpret the same phrasing. For example, a friend of mine was chatty on the phone and mentioned that in spite of being REALLY happily married, they wouldn't get re-married if the spouse died. Of course, I immediately agreed! (NO ONE could ever even hold a candle to the perfection that is my current husband and it would be horridly cruel to subject a second husband to the absolute certainty that I knew he was inferior!} Then, the friend mentioned it was because of all the work involved in the marriage! Who needs all that mess!?!

I was Shocked! Stunned! Amazed! Later I was sharing my shocked stunned amazement with my husband and he said OUT LOUD "I can understand the point, I even agree with it ..." He might have finished that thought if he hadn't seen the expression on my face. And heard the gasp. And the tirade that followed it. Lets just say, its foolhardy to tell your current wife that you wouldn't get remarried because she's too much work! Really. He said that. Out Loud. On Purpose. Not even angry. (And incidentially, he absolutely adores me and would be lost without me and I know this. It was just the testosterone talking.)

But here's the part that got my attention, he sees nothing remotely insulting about "Would I marry again? No Way! Not ever again!" It must be a guy thing. Just like buying your wife a treat, maybe a new yoga mat for morning stretching for example, when you say crazy things out loud :) Just a suggestion ...


What in the world goes through their minds? My husband often assures me that men have no editor in their brains to filter out the stupid stuff.

Then he proves it.


Good thing we love them so much!

Or, as I came to realize last night right after he smashed a giant bug with my brand-new much-anticipated magazine, I can be bought off with Harry-n-Davids-Mint-Dark-Chocolate-Truffles. Which are the size of golf-balls. And EVER so wonderful!

And my husband is wonderful as he happened to have a few stashed away as a special treat for me, just because he loves me and not because I'm a treat-seeking gold-digging trollop!

I've thought it over and Lucy is right. Being married to her is so wonderful that should she die while I am still relatively active, I will remarry. Thank you for showing me the error of my ways.

LOL ... and remind me to post about the hunt for an atheist bimbo :p

Hmmm. Have I already posted that story?

Lucy | 04/17/2007 - 02:23 AM

I'm pretty sure I'd remember a story about an atheist bimbo!

I prefer to look on that the brighter side of things which I’m sure you possibly can appreciate.
