If you are new to my blog and haven't read about what hubby felt he "needed"... start here.
I thought I'd share some valuable lessons I've learned lately.
When hubby says, "I think a plasma TV would look good on our bedroom wall.", it means that he has already thought it out, researched it and is fully intending to buy it. And, by simply telling me what he thought would look good on our bedroom wall meant (in his testosterone filled mind) that he discussed it with me and since I did not say "no, absolutely not, under no circumstances do I want you to spend that kind of money" must mean that I was on board with his decision.
Then, when hubby says that a new computer would be good so it can be hooked up to the plasma and act as a large monitor, it means, once again, that he has already put his plan into action.
Last week, I walked into the bedroom and found hubby ordering our new computer without my knowledge. I was a little upset (OK, maybe VERY upset. Um, ok, maybe it would have been good if "mother foxes" was already in my vocabulary-I may not have had to use its counterpart.).
See, even after 16 years of being together, I learned a lesson. When hubby casually mentions something, it means he is going to do it!
Here comes the humorous part...
We were in the parking lot of the store, after buying the plasma, when karma decided to remind hubby that life can smack you upside the head (especially if you upset your wife). Hubby lifted the plasma by himself (you didn't actually expect me to help him, did you?) into my car (I have the SUV) and tried to push it in. It didn't go. It didn't fit in my car!!!!!
I stood at the back of my car laughing hysterically. I am sure people could hear me from miles away. Hubby shot me "the look" but his face was red, from lifting the T.V. so it only made me laugh harder. He gave me "the look" again but by now there was no stopping my laughter. He tried saying,"Now is not the time for this." but to me, it was clearly the time. I was laughing so hard that I actually thought I may pee my pants.
Since we had taken 2 cars (so the kids could ride home-they wouldn't have fit in the SUV with the T.V.), Paige was already in hubby's car. She heard me laughing and saw what was happening. She started laughing too.
I got "the look" again. Nope, still didn't stop me.
"This is NOT funny!"
Since it really was hysterical, that line didn't work either.
I could not stop laughing.
Hubby finally decided to tilt the T.V. and prop it up.
My fun was over. (until I got in the car and Paige and I laughed about it all the way home-hehe)
