Kids say the funniest things

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?

  • You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.   Alan, age 10
  • No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.   Kristen, age 10

 

WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?

  • No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.   Freddie, age 6

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

  • You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.   Derrick, age 8

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT IS TURNING SOUR?

  • I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.   Craig, age 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

  • When they’re rich.   Pam, age 7
  • The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that.   Curt, age 7

HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?

  • Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.    Ricky, age 10

INSTALLING HUSBAND 1.0

 

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown in overall system performance — particularly in the flower and jewellery applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.  In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0. And Golf Clubs 4.1.  Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.5 simply crashes the system. I’ve tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?

Signed, Desperate

 

 

Dear Desperate:

First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an Operating System. Please enter the command: “http: I Thought You Loved Me.htm” and try to download Tears 6.2 and don’t forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.  If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.  

But remember, over use of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5 Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background, that will eventually seize control of all your system resources).

Also, do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Hot Food 3.0 and Lingerie 7.7

Good Luck, 

Tech Support

Somebody Went To Prison And All I Got Was This Lousy Anniversary Card

1 Jun

wedding1985008

Today is my 28th wedding anniversary.  

Our wedding anniversary, I should say.

Nelson Mandela served twenty-seven years and he got a Nobel Peace Prize.  Me? I got an extra year, a card, and the most loving husband on the planet.

If you don’t believe me, ask my recent escapee, Janet.

Janet of Janet’s Notebook came to visit this week, for five days, with her son, Ben.  They wore me out but we had a great time.  You will be reading about our adventures over the next week or so, when I’ve recovered, but if you can’t wait until then, here are some of her posts about our time together:

Granny Liu: On accents

Who is that dog walker?: On dogs

The north south divide: On the phone

Laughter and love: On being soppy

I know how much you love me so don’t think she’s having fun at my expense (she is, but not maliciously), though I have to admit, it’s a weird sensation to be the butt instead of the butter of the joke.

However, I had great fun learning about another blogger and her quirks.  And of my own.  Janet made me wonder how the Hub has put up with me all of these years.

Now for the next twenty-eight.  Gulp.

Love you, my darling.  But please don’t tell anyone, it ruins my image.  

Happy anniversary xx

Split Mercedes

Split Mercedes (Photo credit: Scalino)

 

A fellow bought a new Mercedes and took it out on the highway for a nice Friday evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up.

 

As the needle jumped up to 80mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him.

 

“There’s no way they can catch a Mercedes,” he thought to himself, and opened her up further.

 

The needle hit 90, 100…. Then the reality of the situation hit him.

 

“What in the heck am I doing?” he thought; and pulled over.

 

The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car.

 

“It’s been a long week, this is the end of my shift and I’m tired. I don’t feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”

 

The guy thinks for a second and then says, “Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!”

 

“Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.

A WORD TO THE WIVES ON HOW TO KEEP HUSBANDS HAPPY

Aussie Barbecue Season

After long months of cold and winter, we are finally coming up to summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking as it’s the only type of cooking a real man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

When a man volunteers to do the Barbecue, usually on a Saturday, the following chain of events are put into motion:

Barbecue Routine

  • The woman buys the food.
  • The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
  • The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill, beer in hand.
  • Here comes the important part:  
  • THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
  • The woman goes inside to organise the plates and cutlery.
  • The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.
  • Important again:
  • THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.
  • The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces and brings them to the table.
  • After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
  • And most important of all:  
  • Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
  • The man asks the woman how she enjoyed “her night off.” And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no pleasing some women….

Rules That Men Wished Women Knew

  • Don’t cut your hair. Ever. It causes arguments when we comment on it.
  • Birthdays, Valentines, and anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present…again!
  • If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you  don’t want to hear.
  • Sometimes, we’re not thinking about you. Live with it.
  • Get rid of your cat. And no, it’s not different, it’s just like every other cat.
  • Dogs are better than ANY cats.
  • Sunday = Football/Rugby/Any other sport. It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
  • Shopping is not a sport.
  • Anything you wear is fine. Really.
  • You have enough clothes.
  • You have too many shoes.
  • Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don’t work.
  • No, we don’t know what day it is. We never will. Mark anniversaries on  a calendar.
  • Most blokes own two to three pairs of shoes.  What makes you think we’d  be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?
  • Yes, No and Mmm are perfectly acceptable answers.
  • Check your oil. It is an essential part of the car.
  • Anything we said 6 or 8 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All  comments become null and void after 7 days.
  • If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.
  • Let us ogle. If we don’t look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?
  • Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say  during commercials.
  • When we are in bed and look tired this means that we are tired and does not mean that we want to discuss the relationship.
  • If you want some dessert after a meal – order some. You don’t have to finish it. You can just taste it if you like but don’t say “No, I couldn’t/shouldn’t/don’t want any” and then eat half of mine.
  • If you’re on a diet it doesn’t mean my meals should be rabbit-food nouvelle-cuisine style. A man’s four essential food groups are: white meat, red meat, cold beer and more cold beer. Please ensure all meals contain a good balance of the above in good quantities – everything else falls under the category ‘garnish’.
  • Do not question our sense of direction.

After she woke up, a woman told her husband, “I just dreamed you gave me a diamond necklace for Valentine’s Day. What do you think it means?”

“You’ll know tonight,” he said.

That evening the husband came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it – to find a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams.”

We Are A Grandmother

7 Feb

Margaret Thatcher famously used the Royal ‘we’ when son Mark’s wife gave birth.

We are a grandmother of a different sort; and I accidentally killed the little blighters.  About forty of them.

The Hub’s Kribensis gave birth.  An Albino Kribensis at that.  The Hub likes Kribensis because they care for their young instead of giving them a twelve-hour head start and then eating them.  He bought a special spawning net for a nursery, because the other fish don’t respect babydom when there’s the chance of a good meal.  The net floats near the top and is attached to the glass by suction pads.  The Hub is soppy over his fish.

When I put on the tank light the other morning, two of the Siamese Fighters appeared to be trapped between the tank wall and the net.  Fish need to keep swimming to breathe, something to do with the movement and the water creating their oxygen.  Here endeth the science lesson.

I pulled the net away and prodded the Fighters to make sure they were still alive. They swam away in a huff.   The Hub told me later that they don’t need to move as much as most fish and like to snuggle in that space from time to time.

I was rather pleased with my act of charity.  The net frame had come away from the suction pads but it still floated so I didn’t wake the Hub to fix it.

The Hub came downstairs a little later and did his usual fussing over the tanks, talking the baby talk he reserves for his millions of little fishies in his five – yes, five – tanks.  He got to the big tank last and exploded with angst-ridden rage: in the

My siamese fighter.

nursery net he found a bloated Siamese Fighter, licking its lips and smiling smugly.

I don’t know why it was so smug – it missed the two baby Kribensis hiding in the corner.

It transpired that the nursery net had somehow come away from the suction pads and sunk just enough for the Siamese Fighter to jump in and participate in some fine dining.

I confess, I blanched.  I considered packing my handkerchief and stick and running away to the circus.  All that stopped me is that I don’t have a handkerchief big enough for my Malteser stash.

I blanched again.  I confessed.  I told my sorry story of mistaken heroics to the Hub, and he forgave me.  He’s like that.  It’s so annoying.

Several days later, I decided it was time to put the kitchen voile back up on the window.  I took it down for the Christmas lights and, once washed, stuck it in the ironing cupboard.  

The ironing cupboard holds the iron (three of them, for no reason that I can fathom; I’ve no idea where the other two came from), several tons of clean washing (always, no matter how much ironing I do which, okay, isn’t a lot, but even so…), bits of material that we kept from the many, many costumes our kids have worn on school activity days (Obi-Wan Kanobe?  Here’s an old brown blanket and a bit of Hub wizardry.  Punk rocker?  Let us just zip one up), sundry items like the sewing kit (never sewed anything), silver polish (never polished anything) and kitchen roll (never rolled around the kitc…oh, wait…blush).

I picked up the voile; it was rather small.  There was another piece, also rather small.  I put the two pieces together – talking of pieces, in church on Sunday, our vicar got the biggest laugh of the morning when the congregation read on the overhead projector, The piece of the Lord be always with you.  We wondered which piece it was – I put the two pieces together and there was a huge hole in the centre.

I’d no idea what had happened but I knew who to blame.  I didn’t want to rollick him when he had just woken up so I left a heart-shaped note and a snippet of voile stuck to the Hub’s mug when I took him his coffee.  It read: I love you but you are in BIG trouble.

He was pretty sheepish when he came downstairs because he realised what he’d done.  His explanation was that, when the Kribensis gave birth, his little catching net broke, it was late at night, and he needed to repair it quickly so that the other fish wouldn’t eat the babies.  He went in the ironing cupboard, found what he thought was a bit of spare material (what?  From the time one of the boys played a bride?) and the rest is history…

I haven’t forgiven him yet.  He finds that so annoying.

Grand Cayman Golf

From Will & Guy.

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”

“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless man replied.

“Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?” the man asked.

“No, I don’t waste time fishing,” the homeless man said. “I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.”

“Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?” the man asked.

“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless man. “I haven’t played golf in 20 years!”

“Well,” said the man, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”

The homeless man was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”

The man replied, “That’s okay. It’s important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer, fishing and golf.”

What a shame he ended up with me.

The Hub once said the sweetest thing to me.   Actually, he often says sweet things to me, but I’m talking about a specific sweet thing.

A character on tv said that he smiled all day because he had just spent the night with the most beautiful girl in the world.

The Hub said, ‘I know exactly how that feels.’

I bet you all said, ‘Aaahhh!

From Will & Guy.

A husband had just finished reading the book Man of the House.  He stormed into the kitchen and walked directly up to his wife, pointing a finger in her face.

“From now on,” he said, “I want you to know that I am the man of the house and my word is law.  I want you to prepare me a gourmet meal tonight and when I’m finished eating my meal, I expect a scrumptious dessert.  Then, after dinner, you are going to draw me my bath so I can relax.  And when I’m finished with my bath, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair?”

His wife replied, “I’m guessing the funeral director.”
