a married moment

do you ever have those moments with your spouse when you're trying to express your thoughts on a serious topic and they just won't have it and make jokes at every turn?

dude. ryan does that ALL THE TIME.

and this morning i told him, "i've had it with you."

and he said, "really? you've reached the end of your rope?" except he didn't sound concerned, he sounded interested. like this topic is way more fun than that other one she was talking about!

"yes," I said, "i have."

"well, lady, let me give you a piece of advice," he said, "when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."

and then i chased him with a wooden spoon.

I'd say "I hope you whacked him a good one with the spoon," except that I tease Regis all the time when he's trying to speak to me, and it would probably be bad karma.

aw, just for that you should slacken the rope a little to give him a little bit more time :)

that is pretty funny.

My husband does the same thing. Just about every time I try a serious topic.
