Married Life Chats Volume V

By  |  12 Comments

happy monday! i hope my american friends had a fantastic 4th of july (i was sick so it wasn’t very interesting over here). if we are buddies on instagram, then you might have seen that we did venture outside with our dog to watch the fireworks and she loved them! she watched them and even wagged her tail when we set her down. it was adorable.

anywho, it’s time for another married life chats because conversations that occur in relationships are just strange and funny at times.

Married Life Chats

on our way to my husband’s 10 year high school reunion
me: wow, i really never thought i’d end up with the class president of what used to be the 2nd largest high school in texas!
him: i never thought i’d end up with someone who was basically involved in nothing in high school.
me: well look at us go! tearing down barriers and being an inspiration to high school nerds and over-achievers everywhere!

me: i don’t mean to intrude on your food consumption but i think you’ve eaten the equivalent to a loaf of bread in the past 15 minutes.
husband: don’t judge me…i’m on vacation *om nom nom (eats another massive chunk of cuban bread thanks to aunt cheryl overnighting it to us!)

after a huge wave got the better of me in the ocean
me: OMG. i think i just flashed everyone on beach!!!!!!!
husband: what! not fair.

me: i have consumed quadruple the amount of calories on this trip each day than i normally do and 79% of these were in the form of your mother’s chocolate chip cookies.
him: try growing up eating them constantly and then jumping on your jet ski! it was a rough life.

(after coming down with a bad cold this weekend and trying to figure out what to do for the 4th of july)
me: well, we could read. we could drink some more water. we could just lay here. we could learn about what’s in cold medicine. we could…
him: stop. no more contributing the most depressing ideas of what to do. just stop.

him: i’m really proud of how these steaks came out on the grill! is yours good?
me: well, to be honest i cannot taste nor smell anything but the grill marks sure look nice!
him: *removes the filet from my plate

him: just so you know where i’m at…whenever you want a baby i’m ready.
me: thank you for letting me know. currently that statement makes me want to take a shot of vodka and eat sushi, even though i hate sushi.

him: i love our dog so much i could honestly eat her!!!!
me: don’t eat her, then we wouldn’t have her.
him: good call, scratch the eating her.

this occurred at 6:17am
him: okay, here’s my new life motto: “have fun and help people!”
me: wow. you really just ooze enthusiasm and motivation from your very being even before i’ve had my morning pee.
him: i can’t help it, i love life!

catch up on the travel edition from last time! please share any amusing and funny conversations you’ve had recently because i know some good ones occur in your married life chats!

    Ahh too cute. *Removes filet from plate* that made me laugh! Also, that much enthusiasm at 6:17 AM would make me want to punch somebody. You two are hilarious!

    Vacation eating is no joke. It’s pretty much the best. In Cambodia we went to a Mexican restaurant 3 times. I realize that sounds ridiculous, but when you live here long term, you do get ridiculously excited about Mexican food that actually tastes like Mexican food.

    The baby one though…. hahaahahahahahahahahah

    We dog sat this weekend and let me tell you, neither of us is ready for a puppy or a baby. I was very strongly reminded that “freedom” is one of my CDFS. And that to me it means doing what I/we want when I/we want without worrying about another living being (nevermind a puppy who liked to go potty in the house)…

    I can’t think of any particularly funny conversations we’ve had lately since most have consisted of discussing the dog’s bodily functions…

      ohhhh yes to FREEDOM and oh how quickly that gets taken away with a puppy or baby (although i hear they give you other things but still). glad you at least had that experience to spice things up and probably make you extra appreciate your freedom!
