This, ladies and gentlemen, is my spouse.

This morning after we got out of bed, Jason and I discussed our plans for the day. I was going grocery shopping. He said,

"I believe I will go to Sally's."

Sally's. As in Sally Beauty Supply. The place where he bought the brush for his beard. Which was askew.

And although I was afraid, I asked.

"Why? WHY do you want to go back to the Sally Beauty Supply?"

And he said, "The brush I bought? I'm just not sure about it. I mean, it feels okay, you know, when I hold it? But the bristles are a little bit pokier than the old brush I had."

"The bristles are POKIER?" I gasped.

"Yeah, pokier," he nodded. Oblivious. "Sharper? I don't know. I just don't like it as much, even though aesthetically it's pleasing and the weight of it is just right. I don't know. Maybe I should just keep it. I don't know if I can find another one that's looks just right like that. But the bristles. The bristles. I just don't know."

And so I said the only logical thing I could think of.

"Can I buy some pot from you?"

He didn't think that was funny at all.

I'm laughing here. But then, most always, I leave your blog chuckling.

Just before this? I left mine chuckling at your comment. Does Jason know what YOU are willing to sacrifice? Really???

: )

My husband is fussy like that too. Sometimes it drives me mad. But when I'm far removed from one of these little scenarios, it just warms my heart and makes me giggle.

Too Funny.
To be fair to your husband though. It was funny to read in print... At the moment I probably wouldn't have sen the humor in it. What can I say we are guys. We are enigmas by nature.
