Addendum to Previous Post

*Scene: Driving in the car and having a perfectly normal conversation about transvestites (don't judge).

Jacob: Speaking of transvestites, is Lady Gaga one?
Me: i don't think so...
Jacob: Are you sure? Because in her song she says "Don't be a drag, just be a queen" and sometimes she looks...different.
Me: Now that i think about it, she was on the cover of a Cosmo and they wouldn't make a transvestite a cover girl. So she must really be a she.
Jacob: Oh good. If she was a drag queen I would feel so...deceived.

**Side note: "To dress" in spanish is "vestir." Trans=cross. Ite=person/group of people. Cross-dresser. Huh.**

i think we're funny

Sometimes after a conversation between me and Jacob, I stop and think to myself, “It’s either a shame or very lucky that no one else was party to that exchange.” Mostly we just laugh at ourselves. Jacob can make me laugh until I can’t breathe, my eyes stream, and I have to pee. These quotes ring true to me, especially these past couple of weeks:

“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.” W. H. Auden

“Laughter is the closest distance between two people.” Victor Borg

“We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh.” Agnes Repplier

Enjoy a peak into a few moments that I found hilarious. I hope that they make you laugh too!

*Scene: Discussing budgeting for next month and cutting down miscellaneous expenses

Me: “We need to make sure to set aside something to buy you a new pair of pants.”
Hubby: “Oh. Shoot.”
Me: “What?”
Hubby: “I was hoping to get some new accounting software instead.”
Me: “Pants are a necessity. Computer software isn’t.”
Hubby: “Not necessarily!”
Me: “Going to go pantless, are you?”

*Scene: Shopping for above mentioned pair of pants for Jacob. He has just exited the dressing room trying a new pair of jeans. I’m hoping to get him to wear his jeans more fitted.

Me: “Would you be comfortable wearing a pair that is a little tighter?”
Hubby (with panicked look on his face): “Tighter where!?!”

*Scene: An exchange via text when I’m on the shuttle on the way home from work.

Me: “We are leaving Blackfoot now.”
Hubby: “K”
Me: “Shoot! Just realized we forgot to change our address with Netflix.”
Hubby: “Oh. Right.”
Me: “Someone on the bus just said they cut off commissioning officers at 31 years old.”
Hubby: “No.”
Me: “Wow! We’re late today! You there?”
Hubby: “Yes”
Me: “Shuttle is almost there. Just jumped onto I86.”
Hubby: “K”
Me: “Do you know your responses to my texts are never more than 3 words? :)”
Hubby: “I never have”
Hubby: “claimed to be”
Hubby: “a good texter”

*Scene: I honestly don’t remember because the following conversation made me forget everything that had happened before.

Me: “Are you sure?”
Hubby: “Sure as shit.”
VERY awkward pause
Me: “I’m glad you are so regular.”
Hubby: “I don’t know WHERE that came from and I don’t want to talk about it.”

*Scene: Making sure Jacob was ok if I posted these convos.

Me: “Are you alright if I put that on my blog?”
Hubby: “Ok, as long as I am anonymous.”
Me: “So I should just say, ‘My husband, who wishes to remain anonymous, said…’”
My husband, who wishes to remain anonymous: “Sure!”
