    Went something like, “sure, we’ll get ya your own credit card.”

    you mean you’re NOT supposed to say any of those things????

    That could explain a LOT! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


  3. April 2, 2009 4:21 am

    I have too unfortunately…

    {an epiphany has set in}

    The 19 years of being pushed to the couch are now understood! That was a great documentary… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hmmmm.. have I ever said something that I instantly regretted? Uh.. Yes.

    When I was dating my wife (a long time ago and in a galaxy not too far away) she started making some moves on me like she wanted to get romantic or something. Of course, this was in the front seat of a Ford Escort hatchback with a stickshift…. just how romantic of a start that is, I don’t know. But I digress.. she was getting all googly-eyed and making odd statements concerning amorรฉ (I always hear Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis singing when I see that word).

    I had this bright line to say:

    “What is this…. something out of one of your Harlequin books?”

    I was 18 so cut me some slack… but, you can imagine that the date didn’t end well.

      shame, shame!

    • April 2, 2009 10:03 am

      and she married you? still? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • April 2, 2009 10:20 am

        yes..and I will never know, but she may have gotten even with me at the wedding ceremony.

        We were 19 when we wed and during the planning of said event, we both decided that it would be cool to do our own vowels. So, I spent some time putting mine together and spoke about how Adam had been created but God decided that it was not good for Adam to be alone and made Eve for a helpmate for him…. and connected all that to how she was the thing that had been missing from my life and that she made things good.. and yadda blah blah.

        When it was her turn to do her vowels, she looked at me and said:

        “I love you, I love you, I love you.”

        That was it. No more, no less.

    That is all.

      someones pleading the 5th

      • April 2, 2009 10:57 pm

        I usually write such long replies I was testing my Twitter-inspired brevity discipline.

        And it was true. The specific conversation that this “yes” related to went something like this :

        The scene: Both on the sofa. I am reading. Diane’s watching Time Team (cool British archaeology show)
        Diane: “Darling, can we … ”
        (long pause)
        Me: “Yes?”
        Diane: “Thank you, that’s all I needed”

    Love Tim Hawkins! And his wife is WONDERFUL.

    Has my husband said some of those things??? How ’bout, “Maybe you should sign up for Jenny Craig.”


    We’re still not speaking.


    • April 2, 2009 10:04 am

      oh. my. word. are you serious???

    • April 2, 2009 10:59 am


      I’ll kill him for you, if you want. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      • April 2, 2009 11:49 am

        I’m not kiddin’!!! He even looked into the cost.


        Guess what I had for lunch?

        Fat-burning cabbage soup (with tons of potato chips)


        • April 2, 2009 12:03 pm

          um. was the cabbage ammo? cuz i know what cabbage does to me ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  8. April 2, 2009 6:56 am

    Yes. On Monday. And he still hasn’t apologized. (but it was much worse than all those things, although the video was hysterical).

  9. April 2, 2009 8:10 am

    HAHAHA! seriously that video had me cracking up!

    k, so one time, honey was helping me down from the kitchen counter (i think i was trying to clean the very tops of our cabinets, and our step ladder wouldn’t reach that high…so anyway…). he let me get on him piggy-back style. well i was totally into it, cuz i love being goofy with him, so when he was ready to put me down, i was like no way, jose! this is fuuuun. and then he says…all matter-of-fact and everything…”get OFF. you’re heavy.”

    i think i remember there being a black eye thrown in there sometime after that.

      • April 2, 2009 8:43 pm

        Right on Tam – Def a FAIL for Landry.

        The correct response, as we all know, should have been:

        PLEASE get off honey, ‘cos you’re really, really heavy.

        i’ so dead for that! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    Unfortunately, yes – it’s amazing that something that sounds so funny in my head sounds so stupid or mean when verbalized.

  11. April 2, 2009 10:13 am

    Jake has said PUHLENTY of stupid things over the years, but I couldn’t tell you what they were now. Most of them are just funny misunderstandings. ๐Ÿ˜† There has been ONE that really got my blood boiling, but we won’t share that today. ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  12. April 2, 2009 11:02 am

    None of my boyfriends were ever stupid enough to say things like that to me, but once my mom told me I should do my hair different so I would look pretty like my sisters.


    • April 2, 2009 12:06 pm

      see, gitz…that the difference between you and us…you dated *smart* guys.

      and the pretty comment….wow! i happen to think you are one hott chick…so, i dunno what thats about ๐Ÿ˜‰ i mean, youre a little furry – but look at those eyes!

  13. April 2, 2009 11:48 am

    oh it’s gonna get all worstbloggery up in this place next thursday!

    • April 2, 2009 12:01 pm

      dude. it cant get any worse ๐Ÿ˜•

    • April 2, 2009 7:25 pm

      Dude, you’re so bad you made up your own word!

      • April 2, 2009 7:36 pm

        i know. should i be worried???

        • April 3, 2009 3:16 pm

          as long as he doesn’t do any of his drawings, you should be good. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • April 3, 2009 3:27 pm

            good grief, boy! dont give him any ideas ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  14. April 2, 2009 12:10 pm

    Hilarious!! Lovin the solo!

    • April 2, 2009 12:56 pm

      honestly. the solo is the best part about this. so unexpected and hilarious!

  15. April 2, 2009 12:24 pm

    When Mark and I were dating, I once made the comment that I looked fat. (Side note: If only I could go back and slap my 17-year-old self silly for that comment and the belief that it was true. Seriously.) Anyway, his response was, “You’re not fat. You’re just pleasantly pl–”

    He stopped before he said “plump.” But it was there. And you just can’t explain something like that away!

    In his defense, that was a good 80 lbs ago and he loves me more today than ever. And still is smart enough to call me beautiful. So all is forgiven. (But come on! You know I can’t FORGET!)

    • April 2, 2009 12:57 pm

      mmmmmmm….maybe he was gonna say –

      pleasantly playful
      pleasantly pleasant
      pleasantly plerrific?

    Check out tim’s video about Homeschool Families to the tune of ‘Adams Family’

    • April 2, 2009 2:12 pm

      i’ll definitely have to do that later. he is SO creative!

  17. April 2, 2009 1:42 pm

    I have put my foot in my mouth so many times I can’t count them. Fortunately I have reached the age where I can’t remember most of them. At least that is my story and I am sticking to it.

    I did congratulate a friend I had not seen in a while for becoming pregnant, when she wasn’t.

    A friend at work was up for a promotion, at least that is what he thought. When he came back from the meeting with our boss I congratulated him on his promotion, before I noticed his long face. He had been fired.

    Everything you are suppose to say to a girlfriend I have said the opposite. Everything you are not supposed to say to your girlfriend I have said. Could by why all of my girlfriends are “Ex”.

    Tim Hawkins is a very funny dude. Thanks for the link to his videos.

    • April 2, 2009 2:11 pm

      ed, i bet you made a fun boyfriend! you dated girls with sense of humors right? cuz they would most appreciate you ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. April 2, 2009 1:57 pm

    Yes, all very true. That guy is hilarious.

    Tam, you need to make a video of “Things you don’t say to your husband”. Maybe you could do it with Mandy since she plays guitar and sings. C’mom, it’s a great idea!

    • April 2, 2009 2:09 pm

      that would actually be funny. the thing is…there almost isnt anything we cant say to our husbands. or at least mine. everything seems to have a “sexual” undertone (to him) so basically…i can barely say anything ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  19. April 2, 2009 3:54 pm

    not enough space to list all the wrong things I have said….wow….don’t give my wife any fuel

    • April 2, 2009 4:23 pm

      oh no, really. youre list is safe here ๐Ÿ˜‰
