Hubs being hilarious, yet again.

Here's a little necessary history: Hubs and I have the same pair of Oakleys. In his defense, he had them first. It all started one day way back when, while Hubs and I were driving around in my car. In typical AMello fashion, I had forgotten to bring my sunglasses along and Hubs, being the gentleman that he is, lent me his pair. He then made the terrible mistake of telling me how good I looked in them. (Ha!)

Sidebar: C'mon. You all know how difficult it is to find the right pair of sunglasses. It's almost as difficult as trying to find the right pair of jeans, or dare I say it, the right swimsuit.

So what was the first thing I did when I got home that day? Went straight to I hate to stray too far from the point of this story, but the first pair of sunglasses were stolen before they even arrived on my doorstep. And so were the second ones. And the third ones. (I wish I was making this up. I made so many phone calls to Oakley's customer service reps that week that they must've thought I was attempting to open up a black market for Oakley Fives).

Thanks, FedEx Man, for leaving me a few ransacked boxes. I hope you enjoyed my sunglasses. All. Three. Pairs. You better look good in tortoise shell frames.


Finally, the sunglasses arrive and every day since then, Hubs and I have been confusing them (although mine are clearly shinier and in pretty-damn-close mint condition).

Fastforward to today. Hubs and I are in the car, again, and he's wearing what I think to be my sunglasses.

Me: Hey, I wonder what happened to my Oakleys?
Hubs: Hm, I have no idea.
(As I check the drop-down sunglass holder in Hub's car)
Me: Hey, here's a pair! (puts them on) Wait, I don't think these are mine. These have a...
Hubs: Yeah, mine have this huge spot in the middle of the right lens.
Me: Yeah, well I think these are yours then (as I try to stealthily switch the sunglasses of the driver)
Hubs: You know, I always get the second best of everything when it comes to you.
Me: (laughing, but knowing it's absolutely true) What?! That's not true!
Hubs: It's okay though, because when I die.. I'm going to be a saint. Just for putting up with you.

They say laughter adds years to your life.. Thank Hubs, you're the best (and the funniest!)
