Husbands and Wives

Awww...romance. For some reason, when I posted this picture, Jess, I thought about your comment to Cynthia yesterday about decompressing with husband in the hot tub. You're so much luckier than poor Lois above, she looks like she has NO room at all :o)

Here's a funny my friend Tracy sent me this morning:


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are
right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more
minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and
you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end
in Fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement
often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot
and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you

about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can
make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before
deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say
you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she

says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at
all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning
this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is
now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's
wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid

if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause
they know it's true!!!

That was HILARIOUS. My hubby always asks me when I say nothing: "like really nothing or something nothing?" and I just squint at him. :)

As for the hot tub Julie, it is so awesome. Ours is big enough that even if he looked like that guy we could get in there together! :) There are two things I LOVE at the end of the day...walking my dog with my hubby, hand in hand and sitting in the hot tub with him talking about our day. Now I just have to figure out how to do those things with a little bambino. The dog walking is easy (stroller) - the hot tub, not so easy. :)

Hi Em :o)

Your evenings sound so romantic. Don't be like us and let that take backseat once the little on comes. You've inspired me to take hubs on a walk...or get him to squeeze into the tub with me :-)

I am so sending that to several people right now. I cracked up. Thanks for the laugh--needed that today :)

LOL Julie... when she wrote that.. I was thinking that it would only take about 2 inches of water if we shared a tub.. otherwise it would flow over.

Cute comic.
