Marital Musings.

I know I've mentioned in previous posts that my Hubs is plain ol' hilarious. While driving into work this morning, I thought of a catchy title to name this post (as well as future posts) regarding the funny/inappropriate things that come out of my husband's mouth. I'm going to need to start carrying around a little notepad with me so that I can jot them down fresh from the lips of the Funny Man himself!

Last Saturday, Hubs and I spent a small fortune in Home Depot on silly little pretty things like pansies, petunias, marigolds, strawberries and a hodge-podge of flowers in a pretty hanging basket.

Hubs: Why are we buying all of these flowers?
AP: We need to make the deck look pretty! Plus, we have all of those empty potters to fill.
Hubs: That doesn't mean we have to fill them all at once.
AP: I'll let you pick out whatever pansies you want.
Hubs: You are a pansy. We'd better not spend a hundred bucks on flowers.

While being run up at the register.. six flats of flowers later..

Cashier: Ok, that'll be $106.60.
AP: doesn't utter a peep and can sense the steam eminating from Hubs' ears.
Hubs: Remember last year when you killed all of the flowers and I had to keep bringing them back to life?
AP: I didn't kill them intentionally!
Hubs: You forgot to water them for an entire week..
AP: Yeah?
Hubs: Well, if you kill these, I am NEVER buying you flowers ever, EVER again.
AP: Sheesh! No pressure or anything!

Let's just hope it rains.. a lot.

  1. Love your blog! And I am also guilty of being a flower killer. Eeks! So far my pansies have not required any tending to....two weeks and still going strong...too bad I didn't cover them last night for the frost. Oh well...

  8. Funny!

    I was just getting ready to do a post on my black thumb. Our house is new and doesn't have any landscaping, so I'm really uneasy about keeping everything alive once we've planted!

  9. how funny!

    we just bought new ones a few weeks ago too and i gasp every single time.....i mean seriously, i personally think you should be able to buy them once and them ALWAYS come back.

    doesn't work that way.

    anyway, thank god my hubby waters all of ours or we'd be in trouble.
