So Maybe I shouldn't Take up Stand-Up Comedy.

Way Cooler read my last post and looked at me blankly.

"But you do that stuff already."

"I know. I won't fail! IT'S PERFECT."

"But it's not a real resolution unless you change something!"

"Well, I know that. I was being funny."

"Really? You thought that was funny?"

This from a guy who write about stock picks for fun.

So, while I didn't succeed in making him laugh, he sure made me laugh last night.

I am not the only one in this relationship who hates being late. We both have an unswerving need to be on time. This can be a bit challenging for Way Cooler sometimes as he is NOT a morning person and now that he is a shift worker some of his shifts start at 6:00. In the AM. Which means he must leave the house NO later than 5:20. While it is tough for him, he has always been on time.

But this morning he woke up and saw that it was 32 after. He panicked, flung himself out of bed, raced to get dressed and headed for his car.

All that flinging and panicking woke me up and because I AM a morning person I figured I might as well get up too and get stuff done. So I toddled off to the bathroom, heard him leave and then headed downstairs.

Then I looked at the clock.

And picked up the phone.

WC: Hello?

HG: Where you going hon?

WC: To work.

HG: Why?

WC: Because I work today (said in the voice reserved for people who believe that Elvis is alive.)

HG: IT's 12:35. Not 5:35.

WC: See you in a minute.

And that is where is the conversation ended because I was laughing too hard to talk. I may not have made him laugh yesterday, but I sure fell back asleep laughing this morning.

BwwwaaaaHaHaHa! As for the first part of your post, tell WC "I was being ironical." That's what I always say when the husband doesn't get it. (And if he tells you that ironical is not a word, tell him "that's the point.")
