Scene: It's after 10 o'clock last night. We (my slightly younger, loving and ever-sensitive husband and I) are laying in bed. I am drifting to sleep fast (sleeping pills already down to curb the nausea!) and he is watching the Auburn vs. Oregon championship football game.

T: "Not to say that you are old, but you are twice the age of these players."

B: (No longer drifting to sleep!) "What??? How old are they?" (I was kind of bugged...a little.)

T: "You know - 18, 19...some 20."

B: (Maybe still a little bit drifting to sleep...and remember, I take sleeping pills.) "What is 19x2?"

T: "38."

B: "Oh. Don't ever say that to me again!"

And then I snuggled up next to him and let myself start to drift off to sleep again, because even though he occasionally points out these things that I really do not want to hear, I love him...a lot!!!

Well if it's any consolation, when I met you I thought you were 22 or 23 maybe 24 but that would have been pushing it. I would have sworn you were younger than me.

lol...so I'm not even on sleeping pills and when I read this I was like...no she is not! Then I did the math too...ouch, that sucks for us! Thanks a lot Tyler! :)

If he was my husband he'd be lucky he didn't get kicked out of bed! Rude!--whether it's true or not ;-)

A couple of weeks ago, Curtis met a recently-returned missionary who served in Italy. Afterwards, he figured out that this missionary wasn't even born when he served his mission. We both felt really old after that, since I'm only 3 years younger than him ;-)

Remind him, Older=Wiser!!!

Which proves he shouldn't have brought that up in the first place!! Good thing he's sweet and we love him anyway!!

That is so funny, leave it to the guys to point out things we really don't want to hear.
I'm glad to see in back to blogging, I love reading your posts they make me laugh, your so funny!
