I Guess I'm Not the Only One

I married an extremely intelligent person. I keep waiting for him to make me a ton of money off that...ka ching! Still waiting though:)

I don't normally get to tease him about doing stupid things because he doesn't do very many of them. Me on the other hand, not so much. Yesterday he actually called me the most scatterbrained person he knows. Not sure I agree with that extreme, but I am pretty scatter brained. I lose my phone/shoes/purse/head about 10 times a day.

Anyhow when I went on my trip to Arizona a few weeks ago Jimmy picked us up at the airport. When we got home he had cleaned the entire house! He had done laundry and everything. I looked at my whites and noticed something was not right. They were all pink...Hmm. Jimmy decided it would be ok to wash a bright pink/purple top with a bunch of white stuff. Now we have a bunch of pink stuff. I wasn't going to rag on him about that since he had just cleaned the entire house. But I was curious. Wouldn't you think after 30 years of laundering he would know not to put something pink/purple in with whites?

I asked him why he did that, and he said it was because he though once you washed it a few times it didn't bleed anymore. I guess I can see why he would come to that assumption, even though it was not correct. After all can we use some more color in our lives? Pink socks are much more fun that white socks.

Last night he had me laughing so hard. We were catching up on our Jeopardy episodes, we are super behind. We always try to compete with each other, trying to shout out the answers before the other one says them.

Anyhow, the category was "Rhyme Time" (oh Jeopardy, you are so clever!). So the answers had to rhyme. The clue was something like " An item a hiker my carry". The conversation then went like this:

Jimmy: Fanny Pack!
Me: Back pack!
Jeopardy Contestant: Back pack
Me (at Jimmy): Hun, they have to rhyme, that is name of the category
Jimmy (in all seriousness): Fanny pack does kind of rhyme a little bit
Me: Fanny Pack? Rhyme? I think you need to look up the definition of rhyme

That kept me laughing all night long, and I'm still laughing about it now. I'm not sure why I thought it was so funny. Probably because he never says or does stuff like this, and I always do. It's nice to not be the only one! They say misery loves company, I guess stupidity does too!

Oh silly Jimmy. I miss you guys. This brings a smile to my face. You probably got it right because of the practice from the other night thinking about those O-Town lyrics..."Because I want it all, or nothing at all..." Silly writers trying to rhyme all with all. I need to listen to that whole cd for a good laugh. "
