How I Exasperate My Husband: The Series – Part 2


Him: “What do you want for dinner?”
Me: “I dunno, what do you want?” *looks sheepishly around*
Him: “Whatever you want,  you have something in mind don’t you?”
Me: “…No….uh huh…”
Him: “Yes you do, out with it!”
Me: “No I don’t….”
Him: “Yes you do, come on…out with it!”
Me: “Pfft I don’t, what do you want for dinner?”
Him: “For you to tell me what you have in mind.”
Me: “I don’t have anything, honest!”
Him: “Yes you do, I can tell.”
Me: “How about omelets?”
Him: “You knew that you wanted that five minutes ago didn’t you?”
Me: “Uh…. no I just thought of it!”
Him: “Riiiiiiiiiigggghhhhhttttttt.”


How I Exasperate My Husband: The Series – Part 1


Apologies for yesterday’s extremely too long, too rambly ramble rant about life. I’ll try not to do that again…

And now, I’d like to talk about how fun it is to annoy my husband!

For anyone who doesn’t know my husband, he’s a big nerd. I mean a D&D – comic books – Star Wars  kind of nerd. I always hear him and his friends talk about characters in short hand. For instance, Captain America becomes “Cap”. Superman is “Supes”. Batman becomes “Bats”. You get the idea.

So every time I hear my husband say “Cap”, I always follow it up with “tain America”. I don’t know why, but I get some sort of irrational aggravation that boils up inside of me every time I hear “Cap”.

Well, turns out I’m a bit of a hypocrite. I give shorthand to words that don’t need shorthand at all!

We have an entertainment store in town called Hastings, or to me “The Tings”. Yeah, I know, it’s nonsensical. Totes nonsensical. See I can’t be bothered to say totally. Totes can’t be bothered.

When I sit down to watch a movie I have some plopski. That’s not exactly shorthand for popcorn…I don’t know what you’d call that. Insanity maybe.

Well so I like to make my own words up. I think they sound better than “Cap”… but the sighs I get from my husband every time. Oh the sighs. They are what fuel me.
