a teeny tiny issue...

I really don't have many words today.
I mean, even though this is a writer's workshop,
I think you will all understand this
UNIVERSAL symbol of my distress!

This, my friends,
This is my word picture for this prompt
at Mama's Losin' It this week:

Describe a moment when you realized you and your spouse were SO different.


There you go.
There is my moment right there.
I RE discover this difference EVERY single morning.
I blindly stumble into the bathroom
(after being pushed and shoved ALL night long-
in our teeny tiny Queen Size bed...)
only to nearly fall into a toliet bowl.
I just look up to the sky
(or ceiling rather)
and thank my lucky stars
to be married to
the greatest man in America.

Does your spouse do any annoying things?
Do tell : )
and then RACE over to Mama Kat's and play along.
It's super duper fun!
I wouldn't lie about something like this!

He eats ice...all the time...crunch, crunch! Even when we are talking to each other on the phone...crunch! And has the loudest, weirdest snore you have ever heard!

Daphine said...

Girl, you are too funny! Dirk is a procrastinator at times and I am soooooooooo not! When he chooses to procrastinate on something...it truly does rub me the wrong way.

Kristen said...

lol! I love it!

Brandy said...

OMG here too this is something that in 13 years of marriage this is the one thing we still argue over.

CJ Sime said...

Thanks for your comment- the thought of me emailing that post to my teachers of the past makes me smile.

Concerning your post: would you rather be nearly pushed out of bed each night or have ZERO covers?

Grandma J said...

I love that I don't have to share a bathroom or bed

Becky said...

Actually, My Love does pretty good keeping that seat down. The standing rule in our house is to close the toilet when you are done, boy or girl... close it! I hate open toilets.

My love must finish what he starts... NOW!

Dan said...

Time to do what we did - separate bathrooms. {*grin*}

Liz said...

That is funny! The only thing that irritates me is that he "gulps" when he drinks. It's truly not his fault though. About 8 or 9 years ago he had a lymph node removed in his neck. When they took the node out they removed his hyoid bone. He's been "gulping" ever since. I try to be understanding....:o)

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

I'm hanging around (now I gotta click back on your blog) cause I like your song. Don't Worry Be Happy. Ahh.

Sorry about the toilet issue. Thankfully my guy knows better!

Stopping by from MamaKat's!

Carebear said...

LOL! So funny! Though probably not for you when you've got a cold wet tush in the middle of the night! Love that you posted a toilet pic, though. And your post is the opposite of what mine would be if I started complaining about hubby. I would have a PLETHORA of words, instead of few, LOL!

Mommynightowl said...

hi from Mama Kat's!

I've never actually fallen in, or almost fallen, but I hate when my hubby does this too.

I finally got him to put it back down, but then he gets lazy and doesn't even put it up so he just pees and misses.

Can't win at everything I guess

Men are never completely housebroken.

blueviolet said...

Did you ask if my husband does anything that annoys me? Is that rhetorical?

Tabi said...

HAHAHA you crack me up! This was great!! I am VERY lucky, hubby is very good about the whole toilet thing! It's the dirty laundry or dishes that makes me crazy!! He would always put them beside the basker or beside the sink!! ARGH!!

Sally's World said...

ha ha ha great post...separate bathrooms i think, or glue the bloody seat down!!!

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Oh I hear you big time! My list is way too long to list but I'm sure Cdub's is too!
You gotta love that other half!
Thanks for the chuckle chickie!

Busy Bee Suz said...

When is the king sized bed coming????

Not too many complaints here, after 24 years, he is pretty much trained. And I got him while he was still young and eager to follow directions!!! :) I mean that in a good way.

Cortney said...

Ewww! I couldn't handle it! My dad ALWAYS put the seat down and I WILL demand that from whoever I marry. I hate when my guy friends come over to my house and leave it up. I'm like - YOU ARE A GUEST! Leave it like you found it!

I like Grandma J am happy to have a bed and toilet all to myself - atleast for a few more years! :)

mimi said...

Yes, he leaves his empty cans or bottles next to the sink. I can't figure out why?? Does he think it's the recycling center? I'm so used to the seat up. In fact, when I'm done....I put it up!! If I don't my boys will pee on the seat.

smiles4u said...

You are too funny! Oh I'm sure my husband does plenty of annoying things that would be oh so fun to write about but I am too sick to think right now. I hope you get your king size bed soon and your own bathroom or your husband trained in the near future! Husbands ya gotta love um!

Jenners said...

Visiting from Mama Kats...

Does my spouse do annoying things? Oh YES HE DOES! Don't EVEN get me started...because there is not enough space in this comment box.

Jaime said...

LOL! that's the one thing i don't have to complain about - he never leaves the seat up

Kelly Deneen said...

LOL!!!! This is the best post ever. ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog yesterday!

R and R Stacy said...

That's funny. I've fallen in many times. Arrrrr.......... lol

He And Me + 3 said...

That is funny. Agent breathes funky when he is chewing...drives me bonkers. lOL

RR Mama said...

You're so funny! I'm sure all husbands do things that drive us all nuts! One thing Hubs does is when he is finished with a coke or if he is taking medicine in a wrapper he will leave them on the counter! Hello the trash can is right there. Just a mere few inches from where he was just standing. THROW IT AWAY! OK I feel better now. Have a Happy Easter my friend!

The Incredible Woody said...

Our issue is changing the toilet paper when it is empty. I tested Vol Fan once. Just to see if he would EVER put the roll on and through the old one in the trash.

We ended up with the empty roll on the holder and 3 empty rolls laying on the counter when I finally broke down and threw them away. The trash can is right next to the toilet!!

Alicia said...

Hahahaha!! Too funny!!!!

My husband leaves his dirty clothes on our bedroom floor! I think I need to put a hamper in there!!

Kristin said...

My husband leaves his dirty clothes in a trail throughout the house where ever he feels like taking off his socks and so on! So annoying! The next morning I follow the trail and put them all in the dirty clothes, sometimes they are less than a foot away from the hamper! Argh! Cute post!

mamamia said...

ha ha hah, i love the prompt. I really have to join in the fun!

theArthurClan said...

*snort!* Too funny! My hubs usually puts the lid down, but he always put the TP on wrong. Drives me crazy!

Miss Angie said...

Hahahahaha! How clever, I love the picture you found!

Living on the Spit said...

It would easier for me to list what he doesn't do to annoy me! LOL.

Heather said...

Ha! That's funny... I mean, I'm sure it's not funny for you. But if that's your biggest problem, you're doing okay. :)

Sprite's Keeper said...

My husband does annoying things all the time. Sometimes his breathing annoys me. (When he's sick.) And the way he walks around with one sock on and the other one somewhere else in the house. And the fact that he gives into Sprite ALL THE TIME, derailing any discipline I dole out. But then he gives me a kiss, tells me he loves me, and offers to rub my feet. And I let him live. :-)

Heather said...

I guess this goes along with the cleaning thing. Joey does this fairly well too. I guess I've got him trained pretty well. So what do I get in return for my hubby?

jlo said...

He snores.
Man, does he snore.

Jenni Jiggety said...

LOL! I gave up that fight long ago...

Mental P Mama said...

Mine still smokes. 'Nuff said.

M said...

My husband is a slob...but he can fix anything and is good in bed...so I guess I will keep him...especially since it's been like 27 years!

drewmark19 said...

What gets me about men is that they don't experience GUILT at all! I'm away teaching all day and feel guilty that I'm away from my kids. If I let them watch too much t.v...guilt. Feed them junk food...guilt. On and on.

Hubby? Gone all day? Often keeps working until the kid's bedtime. Feeds them hotdogs until kingdom come. Goes to the library to bring home more Diego for the kids to mindlessly watch for hours.

Why does guilt plague women so much, but men don't even have a smidgen of it?

drewmark19 said...

Should have mentioned though...for every one annoying thing my husband does, I probably have 2. (Nail biter, procrastinator, complete messy, shopaholic, bad cook...yep, that all describes me.)

Michelle said...

Well his momma raised him (THANK YOU!!) to put the lid down for us ladies. YES!

But he chews loudly. LOL.
