At least that's what my husband thinks.
Frankly, I'm shocked.
I'm all about the communication stuff. Any time. Day or night.
Well...except for when I'm watching What not to Wear . Well...or when I'm reading the food section of the Wednesday newspaper. OK, or when I'm possibly watching Project Runway.
Hey, don't roll your eyes at me. Those shows are significant in the social development of our country. Or something.
But other than those specific exceptions, I am willing to communicate at all times.
My husband, oddly, doesn't seem to feel the same way.
I think it is because I love him more then he loves me. Yea, that is definitely it.
This morning I had an urgent question and so I poked and whispered and he rustled around in the bed and finally raised his head.
"Mwuh...uh....huh?" he finally mumbled.
"Sweetie," I asked in my nicest voice, "what are you going to do when I die?"
He moved around groggily for a bit and then said, "Jenny, it is 4:30 am."
To which I gently replied, "I know but I just wondered what your thoughts are on this subject."
And then he crankily replied "what subject? What are you talking about? It is 4:30 am!"
Geez. Some people just don't like to communicate, obviously.
So I asked the big question again, "I'm just wondering what you would do when I die? Are you going to get re-married? Do you think you would cry?"
Instead of a reply I got the "look".
Do you know that "look"? It is the one that makes you want to go play hide and go seek all by yourself...and just do the hiding part.
Then he calmly, and in a very serious voice, said "are you planning on dying in the next two hours?" in a slightly-deadly voice.
Do you know that tone of voice? Oddly I seem to get that tone of voice fairly often.
So instead of answering I just turned over and pretended I had gone back to sleep.
Seriously, with that attitude why would I possibly try to communicate wtih him now?????
Anyway, things are a bit rocky here at the Matlock house today.
Don't tell my husband, though, cuz he thinks everything is just fine.
But it's not.
I'm harboring a big-time grudge. And I will get even for this rejection.
YessirreeBob, I'll show him.
I just won't talk to him all day although he may not notice because I am being very subtle about it... I will probably have to write him notes since I'm not talking to him.
Yea, that will teach him. He'll be sorry someday when I actually do die. He'll remember this day and look back with great regret but IT WILL BE TOO LATE THEN TO HAVE THIS IMPORTANT CONVERSATION BECAUSE I WILL BE DEAD! So there!
So I'm just going to be quiet and silent and slip around the house like a stealth wife.
Although, oddly the last time I tried that treatment he was in a super good mood the entire day.
And since that sweet story is a natural segue into my giveaway today...ahemmmm....
You know the way it works! Registered follower, three chances to win...comment on this post, last nights winner post or yesterday mornings skipping post.
Oh yea....I'm giving away this sweet book! I can't tell you if the recipes are good because I didn't open it. I like getting a new book and being the first to bend the cover back so I didn't want to open the book so you could have that pleasure, too. The book is titled Cakes & Bakes - a mouthwatering collection of over 50 recipes for dreamy cakes and bakes.
I'll post the winner tonight right before I put up the D link for Alphabe-Thursday. Around 9 MST but any comments up until I do the actual drawing will count.
I hope you're getting your D game on cuz I have a great post this week.
Actually, to be honest, I lied. I have no D post yet at all in my head. I'm just playing with your head a little bit.
Poke, poke. Hey, are you awake?
