Hubby decided to test the walkie-talkie feature on our smartphones last night. We were having dinner in a very noisy restaurant.
Hubby: (above the noise level, talking into this watch): Can you hear me?
Me: (looking across the table): Loud and clear!
Hubby: Shut up.
I try to be helpful.
Hubby: How was your day?
Me: Blah, Blah, Blah…I did the laundry…Blah, Blah, Blah…
Hubby: Did you do the laundry?
Me: I said I did the laundry.
Hubby: Wait. You expect me to listen AND pay attention?
Hubby wanted to buy a pair of safety glasses for his upcoming mission. This is our conversation when he got back in the car…
H: I got bifocal glasses. God, I’m getting old!
Me: (mere silence)
H: Shut up!
(He’s getting better at reading my mind, though.)
Conversations with Hubby…
Hubby: Where you going?
Me: I’m going crazy.
Hubby: I think you missed your exit and already passed that!
Sometimes I set myself up.
Late night conversations…
Hubby: I don’t like these complete toothpastes. They leave your mouth pasty.
Me: Isn’t that why they’re called toothpaste?
(Occasionally, I get one in. LOL.)
Conversation with Hubby…
Me: So, you mean I was right all along?
Hubby: Let’s just say you were not not wrong.
I think there’s an admission in there somewhere.
Mother-in-law: You two are always on the phone!
Me: I am not. I make sure I put my phone down and give you my undivided attention.
Hubby: Oh good! You two are arguing. You really are family now.
