Do You Hear What I Hear???? Huh??? Do you???

Mr and Mrs Claus frequently have conversations that make no sense at all.
Sandra Claus is watching HGTV..Santa Claus comes home, SandraC stands up lays remote on table by SantaC walks towards Kitchen.
SandraC: "I made another half pot of coffee if you want it"
SantaC: "nothing on this time of day I want to watch"

(translation: because I laid the remote close to his hand and he hates HGTV, he THOUGHT I said, you can have the remote, watch what you want, which is what I DO say sometimes)

Driving to gym, early AM and it is still dark and I am admiring Christmas lights.

Sandra: "look at that pretty door"
Bob: "flags are on the pole"
Sandra:" WHAT is cold?"
Bob:" Flags..are..on..the..pole!!!"

  (we talk like that when we are repeating what we said, Translation of  his comment- he said in spouse speak "I can fly my RC planes today, no wind)
PS, my comment mean look at the pretty door all decorted in white lights with a big wreath

coming back from the Y, as we got out of the car in the garage....
Bob: " Bi-Plane"
Sandra:" What about it?"
Bob:" stuff to make it fly"
(Translates to: he builit a new bi plane from scratch, it is SITTING ON THE DRYER and he needs ME to order HIM parts for it.... more spouse speak.)

I say "come look at my post for today?" he looks and says "HUH!"
He says "come look at the bi-plane I built." I look and say" ummm."

Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her Masters (Ho Ho Ho on HIM)
 It is true that love is blind but marriage is definitely an eye-opener ( Ha Ha Ha on him)

HO HO HO from Sandra Claus a JOKE.... imagine that.
3 retirees playing golf.
One: "windy isn't it?"
Two: "no, it's Thursday"
Three: :So, am I, let's have a beer"

So cute-and so true for married folks! Love the pics too!

Mama-Bug said...

Sandra I think we can all identify with you on this one. I'm sure my hubby has selective hearing!

Ginny said...

Bravo, I'm giving you a standing ovation! MORE!! I just read this to Phil and showed him Bob and the plane! Bob would be proud of me, Phil wrecked his new plane to pieces twice and I glued it all together with my low-temp glue gun! It flies great now! The post that I have coming up is almost exactly like this! I have been writing down and saving things that we say like this, else I'd forget. Tell Bob that Phil looks at the flags all the time!! I loved your car story in my comments yesterday and read it to Phil,scary, brave, and suspenseful all at the same time, hats off to Bob!!

Ginny said...

LOVE that header!

Scott said...

Cute header especially the hands and camera in the mirror. These stories are funny because I definitely can relate.

George said...

We speak the same language up here! Thanks for a fun post.

Laughing ... again

The little bird lit there ...

Remington said...

Great post! Thanks for the smile! AND I loved the joke!

Beverly said...

I think you are both a little bit crazy...just kidding. I love the last joke. It's so fitting for Florida.

Remotes cause a lot of tension in a marriage, don't they. Or at least that's what it was in my house when HE had to have the remote ALL of the TIME and then kept CHANGING it while I was interested in something or CLICKING through EVERYCHANNEL while commercials were on and ... well .... maybe I better quit talking about it while I'm ahead. :(

This is a common malady. Here are the symptoms:
1. Married to the same person a LONG time
2. Already think you've heard every worthwhile thing your spouse has to say
3. Bad hearing aid batteries
4. Knowing your hobby/obsession is much more important than your spouse's hobby/obsession
(This was a great post, Sandra, and you both look very fashionable in your Santa hats!)

Huh, huh, huh=ho, ho, ho! Heh, heh, heh! Got that?


Betsy from Tennessee said...

Best jokes yet, Sandra!!!!!! And even though G and I have been married for only 9 yrs. --we still finish each other's thoughts and know exactly what we are saying to each other...

Love this post.... CUTE CUTE CUTE..

Ann said...

Sandra you just totally cracked me up. Those sound like some conversations that might go on here. Mostly because I can't hear worth a darn and my husband likes to mumble. He says he doesn't but I know he does. I swear he does it on purpose too. so why does he get so annoyed when I don't hear

Chatty Crone said...

That was so funny - and yes we do get master degrees living with our hubbies. My husband flies those planes too.

I really enjoyed this one!! lol))

SquirrelQueen said...

Funny post Sandra, a lot of us can identify with this one. All husbands have selective hearing unless it's about their hobby.

Neither of us watch much tv so the remote gathers a lot of dust at our house. But when it comes to the odd conversations we have our own language too.

Love that shot of Bob and the plane.

You're so cute - amazing how you've got the language down pat.... fabulous!
