Overheard at the MacDonalds … Take Two

I know that this is a really short one but this is a conversation that Kevin and I had a while back and I thought you might enjoy a typical interaction between us.

 

 

Kevin:             “Lynn, if you put half the energy into your family as you do your blog your family might think…”

Lynn: (interrupting)  “What’s the point Kevin? My family things I’m a piece of shit already anyways.”

Kevin:             “Why do you say that?”

Lynn:               “Have you ever listened to your children speak about me?”

Kevin:             “But Lynn, which came first the chicken or the egg?”

Lynn:               “What?”

Kevin:             “I mean does your family think you’re a piece because you don’t do anything or you don’t do anything because you’ve given up on trying to get them to think something of you?”

Lynn:              “What?”

Kevin:             “You heard me.”

Me:                  “Oh what?  I thought that was rhetorical.  Is thinking require for this conversation?”

Kevin:             “Good God!”

 

Hahaha…I’m really not sure why Kevin stays married to me.

I’m just saying…

      Thanks…of course, mostly it’s just Kevin being incredibly patient with my ridiculousness!

    I hate it when you think they’re just being rhetorical and then they want an actual answer. So much work!

      Yeah, like they expect us to understand every voice variation with a touch of psychic. :)

    Wait you’re telling me that I actually have to THINK and not just that, but think about THEM and their needs? Seriously? And here I thought it was all about ME! I mean, after all these years all I’ve heard was Mommy, Mommy, , Mom, Mom, Mom, Mum, Mum, Mum, Pam, Pam, Pam….

      I know right? I suppose why they don’t like my mothering methodology and yet, i feel like they turned out ok…especially considering who their mother was

    Thinking is never a good idea. A MAN should certainly know that.

      good news…two out of three of my kids aren’t around much anymore and it’s incredibly easy to ignore my son

    “Is thinking required?” Lynn, it sounds to me like you are them husband and not the wife!

    Sounds a lot like conversations between my husband and I. He stays married to me because I write the check for the housecleaner and I plan what he should cook each night.

      hahaha…i never plan what to cook but i do play the person who cleans the house

    Oh gosh, totally the conversations my husband and I have had about blogging in the past, too. Trying to work on that though!

      Man, these husbands and kids just don’t get it, do they?

    WJW

    That’s so sad.
    Has anyone called Child Welfare Services? Husband Welfare Services?

    Maybe if you monetize your blog, you can afford to hire a nanny. “Wanted: Nanny, NOT SHITTY” would read the Craigslist headline…

    For what it’s worth, I don’t think you’re a piece of shit. I just think you’re a douche.

      Well…you’re certainly entitled to your opinion. Of course, it may well be that you are seriously lacking a sense of humor. I think if you ACTUALLY read this blog, you would possibly be able to read between the lines. However, go ahead an call the services… after all, you obviously know what you’re talking about.

        “Husband Welfare Services?”

        What was that about reading between someone’s lines? What was that about having a sense of humor?

        OR… maybe you were being ironic about my being ironic? Maybe I’m being ironic about you being ironic about me being ironic! It’s like rain on my wedding day!

        • Lynn

          hmmm…i didn’t think you were being ironic…i figured you were being serious.

      hahaha…yeah, i don’t think what i do or say is so unusual. I just happen to admit it!

        It’s cool. You’re like an episode of “Friends.” You’re lovable and funny, even though we saw the same jokes on “Seinfeld” three weeks before. My friend and I understand that not everyone appreciates a “Seinfeld.”

        Ross and Rachel really need to hookup already, though. Seriously.

          April 18, 2011

          Hahaha…ok thanks..Yeah, I can’t say that I’m doing or thinking anything original.

          I just admit to all my many flaws. Ummm…didn’t they end up together?

    My husband and I converse a lot like you and your husband does.:-) Were both crazy and insane, that’s why we stay in love and married up to now.:-)

    • Lynn

      Well, it certainly is more fun and keeps your marriage fresh. At least in my opinion.

    I prefer rhetorical questions. Thinking is overrated!
