Marital cruelty

June 27, 2011
'If you participated in Style by Jury, they would change a lot about you,' my husband suddenly declared, while spreading his sandwich with a thick layer of peanut butter.
'How's that?'
'Well, look at your self!'

'Perhaps my hair,' I agreed.
He nodded enthusiastically. 'And different clothes!'
But now his sudden interest in my looks started to irk. 'Are you trying to tell me something, chubby man in Birkenstocks?'

Too late he realized his mistake, and started to retreat.
'I think I'll go to the bathroom,' he smiled a bit nervously.

'Yeah, you do that!' I shouted to his retreating back. 'But I find you guilty to marital cruelty in the first degree!'

  2. Funny little snippet! It's a sign of being totally comfortable in a marriage though, when you feel free enough to speak without thinking!! :)

    Just stopped by from a blog hop. I’m following you now and hope you’ll stop by my blog sometime too! Have a lovely week.

  4. Very nice.
    WE have to have similar conversations when my husband mentions my all day long bed head! He shaves his all off, and it is not because he is bald. He HAS hair.

    Nice meeting you from the hops.
