Approximately

 

As we have recently demonstrated, Husband does not have magic time-telling powers. 

 

He claims he does, but that’s because he’s a bullshitter.  He’s such a dedicated bullshitter I’d be afraid to take him to a rodeo, for fear he’d actually climb on top of a bull and poo on it. 

 

Yes, I’m still mad.

Our Test Flight

 

Offspring went on a mini-break with some friends—paintballing, Call of Duty, Axis and Allies*… basically a war games long weekend—giving me and Husband a chance to test drive this thing without him.  See how we get on when it’s just the two of us.  Make sure our marriage won’t be a casualty of the infamous Empty Nest Syndrome.

 

I’m glad to report it seems we actually like each other after all.

Laugh and He Laughs Alone

 

First off, before I even start, I have to confess that I pester Husband about this blog.  It’s not required reading or anything, but I know he reads so I like to know the very instant he’s read a post so I can get his feedback.

Poor him… not how it goes down.

 

Which, yeah, maybe sounds annoying.  But I do it for yoooouuu!

 

Because sometimes, y’all, his feedback is just so… so exactly what this blog is for that I have to share it with you.

Volumptuous Peeohple

 

I feel like this is the season for bonding, so I’m going to tell you an important step to going from Acquaintance, Person I Like, or Person Who Is Allowed to Buy Me Coffee to WE ARE FRIENDS NOW.

 

 

You gotta be willing to hate along with me.  And you’ve got to be on board with my reasons.

Now, this is not a requirement for fans, so if your goal is to continue to read my blogs and have me love you to bits for reading the words that I blurt out into the ether, don’t stress this next bit. But if you want to actually sit next to me while I drink that coffee, or really just keep up with my in-person conversations?

 

Yeah, this is a thing.

 

This is how my friend Audrey learned the rule:
