Well, Since You Asked….I’m An Outdoor Slacker


Hubs- I need your help
Hubs-We need to rake the yard.
Me-We? Who is this “we” you speak of?
Hubs-You and me makes a we.
Me-Really? Liquid makes me “we”.
Hubs-Ha ha. Now, back to raking.
Me-I don’t rake. You know this. It was in our wedding vows.
Hubs-Is was?
Me-Ummm, yes. You promised to love, honor, cherish, and not make me do yard work. I remember it distinctly.
Hubs-I don’t think so.
Me-Would I lie?
Me-*pouty face* Your right, but I’m not lying about this. I do the inside, you do the outside. It’s in the bible or something like that.
Hubs-Who came up with that idea?
Me-*nods head* God
Hubs-God said you don’t do yard work?
Me-I think so. Maybe. Someone did. I don’t remember now.

*Long pause where Hubs just stares at me. He totally doesn’t have the “stare” but I don’t call him on it.*

Hubs-So, are you ready?
Me-For what?
Hubs-Never mind.

BAHAHAHA love it! I can't pull that on the hubby b/c I make him clean the bathroom every once in awhile and he handles the kitty litter to. BUT outside the only thing I do is the flower beds. He does everything else. Once he tried to get me to mow the lawn and I couldnt start the lawnmower *hehe* or at least thats what he THINKS. :)

Everyone knows girls do inside work and boys do outside work.

And I say that in the least sexist way possible!!! ;)

I Love that hubs doesn't have the "stare" - what boy does?

Nikki-hubs KNOWS I don't do the outside. If I could, I'd astro turf our whole yard.

Mandi-hehe. He's so cute when he tries to "stare" me. Kidlet even is beginning to cultivate her stare.

OMG this was so funny, I love it.
I was imagine you with the most innocent face while talking to hubs :)

Fit_cat-He tries so hard but in the end it's always Tori-1 Hubs-0 :)And yes, *angel face* was present the whole time.

Julie said...

LMAO!!! You are too funny Tori! That's the same deal I have with Jason. I do everything (and I mean everything) in the house and he does out. He has no excuse...especially since he doesn't have to shovel this year because we hired someone to do that. Lucky
