Married Life Chats Volume IV
while we recover from jet-lag after our adventures through mexico, australia and hong kong (more travel posts coming soon), i figured i’d let you in on some of the weird conversations that take place between my husband and me! this especially gets interesting after 30+ hours of travel set in…
me: are you out of breath from dancing?
him: how many wives do you think say that to their husbands?
(in reference to us talking about what he should say he does professionally as a speaker/trainer)
him: …but then they’ll think i’m like a fitness trainer (flexes)
me: i don’t think they will think that, sorry bro.
me: i didn’t think you like cats?
him: i like holding things that are alive!
(after arriving to our extremely luxurious resort for the night)
me: i have no idea how rich people are supposed to act in places so fancy like this so i’m just going to play it cool.
him: yeah, me too! let’s just stand up tall and take a while to look at the wine menu!
me: whew this margarita is strong, yeeehaw!
him: *slides his over to me with a wink
(on hour 25 of our journey to australia while watching “modern family” and he leans over)
him: i want to have a baby with you! i mean like really soon!
me: *changes channel
him: how much trouble do you think i’d get in if i tried to steal the baby koala?
me: a lot. it’d probably be worth it though and i’d come visit you in the australian jail. i bet it’s pretty nice here.
me: oh wow! the australian accent is pretty sexy to listen to!
him: *covers my ears.
(after learning you can take a shower in the singapore airport for $15 after we got stranded there)
him: do you think they’d let us share a shower so we can save some money?
me: no but i appreciate your fiscal responsibility.
(after discovering this place in hong kong only gives massages to men that may have a happy ending)
me: is it weird that i sort of want you to go in there, but not follow through, just so i can understand how all of this transpires?
him: yes. you are the weirdest person ever and i will absolutely NOT do that.
me: hong kong food is too advanced for me and my simple tastebuds. i just want peanut butter and jelly toast!
him: here (hands me some fish sauce), just pour this in your mouth.
him: whoa! we left tokyo tomorrow on june 10 and now we are getting back to oregon today, on june 9!
me: stop. i can’t take it. mind. will. explode.
