I've been crying for the last 10 minutes

With laughter that is

DH went and got acupuncture for his ankle 2 nights ago, and got given some Chinese medicine to help with the swelling or something. It was a big brown ball, kind of grape sized, maybe a bit bigger and smells horrible. He got told to chop it up and take 1/4 each day for 4 days. Well today he decided he was going to be a man and take 1/2. I said he should at least chop it into smaller pieces so it would go down. He decided I was just being a girl about it.

I was watching him, and he swallowed it down, and immediately gagged it up, and sputtered and squealed and groaned about how gross it was. I don't know why the sight of my husband gagging was funny, but I was almost wetting myself with laughter (maybe it's because I was right ).

So he tried again, but cut it in half, and I said he should cut the bits in half again to make them smaller so they go down easier. Sure enough, he ignored me (maybe because I was still laughing at him). He got the first bit down, and gagged up the second one again which had me literally rolling on the ground with laughter.

Oh the things that amuse you when you're married.

My best friend was having terrible night sweats through the menopause. She tried everything she could, so the last resort was the chinese herbs that she spent a fortune on to make into a tea, but it was so awful she suffered with the night sweats instead

Sarah your horrible, fancy laughing

Husbands just don't like to listen to their wives. It's almost as if they listen and their wives may be right, it somehow diminishes them.

I told my hubby I really, really needed new tires on my car. He just smiled and nodded, uh huh, OK. Well he used my car for a couple weeks and told me he couldn't believe how bald my tires were and that they were positively unsafe and that he could see the steel radials. Hmmmm - go figure. When I mentioned to him that I had already told him, he said, oh well, you panic over everything so I didn't take it too seriously. Well I don't panic, I plan. I prefer to be proactive rather than reactive and he's the reverse.

My favorite is when I tell my DH something and he doesn't listen, then he finds out the hard way and says to me, " you're right, I should have listened." I'm like well DUH.

Eric and I bought a kitchen table the other day and we had to take it home and put it together. I wanted to read the directions, but he wanted nothing of it! He spend about 3hr trying to put it together with no luck and refused to let me help him. He finally gave up and we went to bed. The next day while he was at work I put it to gether in about 10min, I used the driections. Men are just hard headed!

Maybe you should have used the pill pusher thingy that we use for the cats to get the stuff down-that would be a great picture!!

I'm really looking forward to a week from now when Neil starts his prepping for his colonoscopy next Friday-he is whining already about the lack of food!

Oh my I agree. I was having a problem with my car once and I told DH, "Well why don't you try this?" He was like that's not it blah blah but finally he gave in and tried what I had suggested. Low and behold it worked. I said, " See honey, I do have a brain."

Oh Sarah, you bad girl! Good thing he adores you!

When my father was about 10 (which would have been around 1931), he got extremely sick... and since they lived on a farm in the middle of nowhere in the deepest backwoods of Kentucky, there was virtually nothing to be done for him. Finally, when his fevers got so high that he was hallucinating, his dad rode to the nearest doctor (hours away by horseback) and was given something to make into a tea.

So his dad comes into the room and explains, "Son, the doctor said to have you drink this tea, and you have to drink it all down. He said it would fix what's wrong with you. But I feel like you have a right to know what it is before you decide whether to take it. It's made from sheep dung. So it's up to you."

After weighing this information, my father -- brave even at age ten -- decided to drink the stuff. And by golly, it cured him!

But if anybody ever needs to give me something like that, I hope they won't tell me what it's made from!

Funny story.....

Not too long after Brandon moved in he had a "DUH" moment

I had a Tart burning on top of the T.V. one afternoon when Brandon came in from work. Well, he knows what it is and I've told him to be careful cuz it's hot. But for whatever reason he decided he was going to stick his hand in the liquid wax.

When he did it he yelped like a puppy and said "OW!! That's hot!"

I said "Duh, liquid wax usually usually is"


Yes, I laughed until I almost peed my pants

Men!

I had a horse awhile back. I was told he was broke to ride just needed a little work. I was taking my time actually getting on him because I wanted to make sure he was solid in ground work first. John thought I was being silly and thought I should just "hop on and hope for the best". So he decided he was going to get on the horse and prove to me that the horse was safe and that I was being silly. I could tell the horse was about to blow up before John even put his foot in the stirrup. I told him multiple times to just don't even try. I told him he WOULD be bucked off if he got on that horse.

So what does he do? Puts his foot in the stirrup, swings up.... and promptly goes flying through the air and landing in the dirt while the horse keeps on bucking and eventually runs off.

Afterwards, he said "You were right, I should have listened. I thought I'd prove you wrong."
