Married Life Chats Volume VI

By  |  24 Comments

happy monday! since sometimes mondays are worse than when all you have wanted all day is cereal and then you get home to discover you have no milk and all your spoons are dirty…it’s time for married life chats! i have some doozies from our travels that i have been overly excited to share with you!

we are headed to vegas today to join the toastmasters international convention AND i am putting on an event tomorrow (!) for vocal women! all good thoughts and positive vibes are appreciated and we still have few seats left if you happen to be in the las vegas area – come play!

alright, let’s get to it:

Married Life Chats

(whispering in my ear before we go into separate rooms after we just married our friends)
him: you know if you are vegan you can’t have butter.

him: can i have a chip?
me: sure *hands him one
me: ummm a salt and vinegar chip?
him: these are prank chips, right?!?!

me: did you take a picture of me sleeping?
him: yes. you are cute when you sleep.
me: don’t do that. that’s what murderers do.
him: you officially watch too much CSI

me: did you bring any super low cut v-necks and capris to london, because you’d fit right in!
him: daaaaaang it. i dropped the ball.

me: brilliant idea. you should save your last little bit of goat cheese and have it with your grilled figs, which we should order for dessert.
him: i have never loved you more.


me: OMG i cannot believe how much we just spent on two drinks!
him: babe, we are in london! we will look back and not even remember how much it cost.
me: orlando. august 2012. $4 for ONE egg. ONE. EGG.
him: touché.

(at the bar reading a sign in a london pub)
him: so, what does the sign 2-4-1 mean exactly?
bar-tender: well…it’s two drinks for the price of one.
me: we are from canada.

him: is that your stomach?!
me: that’s a gurgling pigeon outside, you weirdo.

him: would you rather have lord voldemort’s baby or kill sugar (our sweet puppy dog)?
me: i’m absolutely not answering that.
him: i’ll help you raise the baby.
me: *uncontrollable laughter

him: was seeing the behind the scenes making of harry potter like the best thing ever for you?
me: i mean, it’s right up there with meeting and marrying you.
him: what’s the order?
me: i’d rather not say.

(going up creepy stairs to the hammam, where we are getting a turkish bath in morocco, more on that later!)
him: are we going to die here?
me: no. there’s too much talking. if we were going to die, they would all be much quieter.

    Too funny!

    I think I’ve said the same EXACT same thing to my husband about taking photos while I’m sleeping.

    This just further confirms that I want to be IRL BFFs with you. And also for our husbands to become BFFs.

    Did you just say you and Ryan were from Canada? 😛
    My mom did ask me what the “3 for 2” sign meant. She thought it was 3 tubes of toothpaste for 2 British Pounds (and commenting on how great of a deal it was). After about two seconds of thought, I realized it was buy 3 tubes for the price of 2. Not such a great deal after that.

    You guys are hilarious!

    I laughed out loud at the Voldemort would you rather. That’s an awful question.

    I actually keep a note in my phone of things Pai says to me that are hilarious/borderline inappropriate. A few of my favs: during a staring contest: me: “You looked away first!” him: “I’m tired of looking at you.” me: “I think every husband agrees they marry out of their league.” him: “Not me. I’m not going to agree. Equality baby! I think I’m hot too.” Unfortunately the inappropriate ones have to stay in my phone

      i do the same thing on my phone and likewise…only share the mostly appropriate ones because they get crazy sometimes!

      ha! “equality baby…im hot too!” way too funny! i bet you’ve got some good ones on that phone though!

    Hahaha, that “would you rather” question is awesome- If it came to Voldemort offspring or death to my dogs I’d definitely be having a dark wizard baby! I love your response to the order of best days, too!! 😀 I’m just like you as far as remembering the price of things! I love you rattled that off so quick! HAHA!

      i honestly laughed so loud when without hesitation he said “i’ll help you raise the baby!” sometimes it’s almost a curse to remember how much that crap costs- damn the egg!

    I laughed out loud that you proved you could remember how much you spent on an egg three years ago. That’s so me, too. I remember. Probably a bad thing.
