The Strain of Marriage

So there was this one time I almost killed Joe.

Like last week.

  1. So glad I'm not alone on this one. And to take the perfect old ones out before the sexier new ones were even tested? Just dumped in the alley? Oh the cruelty.

    1. How about it?? It's like Joe has no soul sometimes. ;)

  2. I can't imagine Joe having a trophy wife, though I laughed out loud when I read that line; I think you are going to out live him :)

    I would imagine Joe might think twice before he throws anything else away.

    1. Which was part of my plan. Perhaps enough times of my being right and he'll finally learn? Hope springs eternal.

  3. This is freaking hilarious. We are on a septic system now and I always heard you're not supposed to have a garbage disposal with a septic system (you can, but that's just what I heard). Phil said we don't really need a disposal since we don't put anything really big down the drain anyway. He said, "If it's small enough to fit through those holes in the sink, it will go down the drain." So, naturally, we have a disposal. I'm getting long-winded here, but bear with me. SO, I hate the strainers we have in the sink because you should be able to twist them and let the water flow through and the chunks stay in the strainer. Except mine always flops all the way back down and closes the drain again. So I just rip the stupid thing out and let everything go down the drain. Phil says, "the strainer is supposed to catch all that so it doesn't go down the drain." I respond, "yeah, but YOU said if it fits through the holes, it will go down the drain anyway so it doesn't matter."

    He hates me because I'm always right. :P

    1. Andi,

      I think you are right! We have that septic system here in the country and a disposal. I put salad clippings in a container for the outside compost pile and then put other plate scrapings in the trash.

      The only problem, is my husband doesn't do this compost pile any more and I have about six coffee cans of yuck, and I do mean yuck, to compost one day now. Open them up and you get the worst smell ever.

    2. I do think husbands need to leave our stuff alone--for their safety. I remember my late husband got into my research to create less paper clutter. I could have killed him, but that is not why he died. He died from natural causes.

    3. OMG your husband died??? Now I have guilt. And it wasn't even my fault.

    4. These husbands will never learn.
