Ready When You Are!


It is possible that I have won, definitively and for all time, the “late” argument. 


As always, this would be because Husband was hilariously stupid once, and I’m never going to let him live it down.  Ready?


ferret preps for jump....

Wait for it….



WAIT!  You’re not ready, because I just decided that we’re going to make this a guessing game!  Partly because we haven’t done one of these in a while and partly because I want to stretch out the suspense of a post that was only like 200 words otherwise.


Shut up, it’s my blog. 


In case you’re new, here’s how this works: I’m going to set up the story and then we’re just gonna leave it.  Yup.  For a few days.  During that time, I want you to really think about that cliffhanger ending, and the possible reason/response that Husband is about to give/actually gave.


Everybody ready?


Okay, here’s what happened: we were getting ready to go out, and I was talking to a friend while I finished up—you know how you do.  He huffed a “ready when you are!” at some point and then stormed off to sit in front of his computer while I struggled to dress with blackberry pinned to my ear.  Then I was done and popped in to show off my mad skills, only to find that he was still without shoes and playing a game and generally not actually ready.  Naturally I entertained myself for a while, but eventually….



ME:  Honey!  You said you were “ready when I was.”  Now I’ve been ready and washed a wall.


Typeset letter spell STOP!


That’s it, that’s all you’re getting.  Husband had what he felt was an airtight defense (it was, of course, bullshit) and I want to see if you can guess what it was!  Let’s see your guesses in the comments (or on twitter or whatever, I’m not here to limit your potential)

    Generally when I find me and my husband in this exact same situation (as I often do) he looks me dead in my face and says he is ready so I can’t guess but I’m eager to find out.

    Him: I was ready but you were taking so long I decided to stomp some grapes into wine. Want a taste? *Holding up right big toe*

  3. Ummm well my husband usually says something along the lines of, “Well when you say you’re ready, that still means five more minutes, and that’s all it takes me!” -_-

    Hmmm. I wish I could guess… usually I am the one who is ready anyway, and Hubby just takes forever to get ready!
    Was he at some key moment in his game???

  5. I am not brave enough to enter into this debate. Cause I know when this happens to me I usually lose my shit and then all bets are off.

    Him: Well, I knew you needed to wash a wall, and the toilet still needs cleaning, so go ahead and do that while I get ready. You: I’m going to stab you in the face.

  7. ARE ALL MEN THE SAME?! This is literally how it goes every single time. He never has his shoes on when he says he’s ready. 20 minutes later…I’ve cleaned the bathroom, rearranged our spice cabinet, and written a blog post. WTF 😂😂😂
