Married Life Chats Vol. I

By  |  26 Comments

sometimes really ridiculous conversations and hilarity occur between my husband and myself. i’m often like “maaaan! why didn’t we do that reality tv show so we could at least have footage of the things we say?!”

my husband actually used to do a series on his blog about the weird things i would say because my mind tends to come up with strange things. i blame this on not doing enough drugs in college so i have to make up for weird things.

see the most recent one from our trip to china or play catch up from when we were trapped in cars/planes/hotels during our 50 city tour teaching people the power of public speaking! things get weird.

Married Life Chats

i figured i’d share a little insight into ‘married life chats’ that occur between us.

if you’re a blogger and would have interest in joining in to make this a series or want to co-host let me know because i know there are conversations between you two that would crack us up!

these have all occurred in the last 3 days…

him: i think i’m going to get rid of some clothes that don’t make me feel good or fit right
me: oh, like the shirt you have on now?
him: um, no. i like this shirt.
me: oh. m’bad.

after looking in the pot and seeing all the mac ‘n cheese had disappeared
me: i cannot believe you just ate the whole box!
him: umm, do you not recall eating a bowl of it like 5 minutes ago?
me: oh. yeaaaah.

when he’s dressed to the nines and i’m not…
him: how do you always find that balance between looking 17 and 67 at the exact same time?
me: it’s a talent, really. now hand me some chips, sonnyboy!

him: sorry i woke you up last night. you weren’t moving and i had to make sure you were alive.
me: makes sense.

me: can you fill up my water bottle please?
him: with what?
me: vodka, please. wait, you better make that water since i have to drive.

me: can you bring me some applesauce?
him: no, because you’re not in a nursing home.
me: (cracking up) what does that have to do with anything?!
him: you have teeth. use them.

4 minutes later while sitting across from me…out of nowhere
him: (cracking up) you just look…it’s too much for me today.
me: what? why?! what?
him: (laughing harder) i mean…you look like a depressed secretary sitting at her desk just counting down the minutes until 5 o’clock when you can go home to your 3 cats.
me: why?! because i’m wearing my khakis from 8th grade and i’m trying to pull off this long necklace?
him: (can barely breathe he’s laughing so hard): YES! yes to all of that. and the applesauce.
me: *silence.

    Haha you guys have me in stitches over here. I don’t watch reality TV but you can bet that if you guys had decided to accept I would have watched the show just to see all this funniness (is that a word). Oh and so I could have pointed at you on TV like a wild woman and repeat “I know her, I know a famous person!” 🙂

      well i should also state that they did NOT fit from the time i was 19-23 at all (but i hung on to them because i’m not a khakis person). i started working out and then they fit again!

    This had me laughing out loud! I love it and I think it should definitely be a series. I would love to share some funny conversations of my husband and mine if I ever remember them 🙂

      i’m trying to get in the habit of jotting them down on my phone because when i think i’ll remember what we were laughing about…i never do! glad you’d be on board!

    OMG I’m dying over here. Hubs and I have hilarious conversations all the time and that’s part of the reason I started my link-up about Conversations. I love this!

    Haha, these are great! I have always said (and friends agree) that Kyle and I should have a reality TV show. I think a little series on these conversations would be great! I have so many random thoughts and, since he’s my partner, he get to hear them all! This is one of my favorites with my hubby:

    [It’s like 11:30pm. We’ve been in bed for roughly 20 minutes.]
    Me: Hey, Kyle. Are you awake?
    K: No. Not really.
    Me: Ok, well you know how they make chicken nuggets?
    K: No.
    Me: I mean, like, in general. That they exist.
    K: Ok. Yes. Chicken nuggets exist.
    Me: Why don’t they make beef nuggets?
    *Long pause*
    K: I’m going to sleep again.

      hahah YES audrey! that is a hilarious conversation you and your hubby had. i now cannot stop thinking about why they don’t make beef nuggets (though that sounds horrible). good question! sounds like some solid content would come from you both!

    Okay but he’s not wrong about the applesauce thing. If I come over do you think he’d fill both of our water bottles up with vodka and then drive us around while we were drunk and take us to do fun things? That sounds like a really great day.

    I loved reading your post. I get the random conversations you’ve had with your husband, but in a different way. I rarely ever drink. But I have come to the conclusion if I have too much sugar my body starts to crash and I get really giddy and seem like I could be drunk. Many times my husband is like I really should be filming you. Our latest funny moment was on Thursday. I had two much sugar and it was a long day at work. Then we went shopping for groceries and a cat tree. My hubby was trying to fit the box for the cat tree in our vehicle and a plastic bag that looked important got away. I decided to chase after it and in the process almost got hit by a vehicle. I gave up. In the vehicle I said to my husband, “I must have looked like a crazy person chasing a bag.” My husband agreed I did and we both laughed. If he had a camera it would have been funny. It is great to share in the funny moments in marriage.

      thanks for reading, tess!! while i am very glad you did not get hit by a vehicle, it was a semi-hilarious visual of you chasing after the all-important bag! ha!

      watch out for those sugar overdoses!

    I love posts like this! Granted, alot of the stuff I could share on the blog wouldn’t make much sense to anyone else, but alot of our conversations end in “Cool story, bro” because it wasn’t a cool story at all.
