Marital Musings; Give Me My Oreos and No One Will Get Hurt!

Disclaimer: I'm only slightly ashamed of my behavior last Friday night.

While on the couch catching up on our DVR:

Hubs: I'm going to get some tea. You want anything?
AP: Could you bring me some oreos and a glass of milk?
Hubs: Sure. Be right back.

[I go upstairs to put my jammies on and come back downstairs to find Hubs holding only four oreos and a glass of milk.]

Hubs: Did you know that there's only two oreos in a serving?
AP: [truly angered by Hubs' meaningless and innocent insinuation that I completely took in the wrong fashion]
AP: What the f**k? (Yes, I did curse. I said I was shamed) Are you serious? Are you trying to ration my oreo intake?
Hubs: Uh, no? You could always go back and get more.
AP: I always eat more than four oreos!
Hubs: Are you seriously upset? You didn't even say "thank you!" This was all I could fit in my hand, Ashley Paige! Just go get some more when you finish these!
AP: I don't even want them anymore. [Even though I proceeded to sit on the couch in silence and dunk and eat my four oreos].


For the record, Hubs and I have reconciled. I apologized for my rash and rather ridiculous and inappropriate behavior and blamed the entire incidence on horomones. We are still madly in love regardless of my temper tantrum over being handed only four oreos and not the twenty seven I had intended on eating. Stay tuned for additional posts about our weekend later today and of course, I haven't forgetten about the surprise post I had promised! It's in the works!

  5. Chris would totally say something like this too me as well... don't worry I would have reacted the same way! =)

    *** NOTE: I don't get on him when he eats a half pint of ice cream in one sitting!

  6. I once made a comment about an unhealthy meal Derek and I were eating and his response was something along the lines of 'its not the 1st of January yet' to which I screamed at him 'oh, so I guess that means you think my new years resolution should be a diet'

    (they never really understand the undertone in what they say)

  10. I loved this. Glad someone else gets emotional over the most random of things! haha :)

  11. No worries! It is totally appropriate to get mad when you think someone is trying to reduce your intake of Oreos! :)

  12. I think we've all been there.

  13. Oh my gosh, I am so guilty of doing the same kind of thing :-)

    ReplyDelete

  18. Ha ha ha love this!! Totally something that would happen out our house too!

  19. lol we have that fight too over various things in which i occasionally insert the "wtf" (but you know, the actual words) - making my hub more than slightly annoyed. and i feel sheepish later. but seriously, 2 oreos in a serving, that's ludicrous!

  20. I'm so glad that other people have stupid arguements, too. I got upset this weekend because I've planned a project for every weekend to finish our house. Well, my husband did two projects this weekend, so I had to erase one from a future weekend & I didn't have anything to put in it's space. It escalated into this HUGE ordeal & I ended up laying in bed bawling, going, "I swear, if I had known the first year of marriage would be this hard, I'd have never gotten married!" Yes, I am ashamed of my drama queen tendencies. :-)

  22. That EXACT situation happened to me last night. I made him go back and get me the whole box so I could decide how many to eat! Damn hormones!

    ReplyDelete
  23. OMG I would have murdered Z. No joke. Men don't understand....hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Um, is it even POSSIBLE to eat only 2 Oreos? I thought the whole package was a serving?? Oops : )

    ReplyDelete
  25. 27 Sounds about right. My sister brought some home the other day. I kept the package away. I can eat a whole sleeve easily!

    ReplyDelete
  27. OMG! you and my husband are just alike when it comes to his OREOS!

    ReplyDelete
  28. hahah. MY husband Eats a package of oreas every 2-3 days. I am soo happy I am not a big fan of them, because I can't afford the exra cals...He can though!!
    FOr some reason they just dont do it for me!
    haha, that is funny your husband pointed the serving size out though. ENJOY THEM! 2 or 20 :)
