Daily Happenings

Sometimes being a stay at home mom, you have to be the entertainer. I think it’s mostly to keep the sanity. But sometimes all one needs are some traditional comics plus you and your spouse end up becoming a duet of a comic relief. Well let me introduce you to the real life Lockhorns. We are that couple from time to time. Sit back and allow my true stories of folly entertain you.

How to give your Husband heart failure while making baby laugh. LOL

*phone rings* In the middle of the conversation as he talks about mobile phone has been paid, and a couple other monthly happy bills have been paid. The usual no stress conversation as I finish putting the onesie on baby.

“$100.00 left in the account then. I just looked before I rang you.”

{Not really, but he’s falling for it} Meanwhile baby is laying there laughing like it’s the best joke she’s heard in her entire 10 months of life.

“No, there is a lot more in there, I just looked.” I can hear his heart rate rise over the phone.

“But seriously, I just looked and the account said $100.00.”  Again not seriously, but oh so funny.

“Let me check cause I know what it said…”

“Just kidding, I know what it read.” Heart Failure, Check Mate.

Just one of the several times my husbands almost went into cardiac arrest because of my antics. Is it mean, no, does he survive, yes. Gives me a laugh, the baby and kindergartener a laugh and husband knows he’s still alive because the ambulance didn’t have to be phoned. Plus I think it’s good for his health. He will disagree and find something that will back him up that I shouldn’t be so cruel. But it’s all in good show.


The day I bought a dress and told him the actual price.

The dress was just a tad over $100. But in reality it was on sale plus the clerk used a store coupon. So I only paid $40. As I waited for him to read the receipt because of how much this dress “was”. He was about to get livid cause he said I could get a dress or outfit, not spend what he spends on my Dead Sea Cosmetics.  Well he now know the trick. Before he noticed how I was shopping, he suffered only a few mild cardiac failures. It was hilarious, the terror, the you know better looks, and the ” I said you could go to the Mall, I didn’t say……..{reads receipt here} Never mind!”

College Sociology Assignment

Now this story had me ashamed. I was the one to do the assignment and it still had me ashamed of myself.

BACK STORY  A few years ago, one of my professors gave us an assignment. The class was sociology and the assignment was to do something out of societal norms. Obviously nothing illegal, but to do something like the scene on Impractical Jokers. Where they were in a library and using whistles and symbols. Something against societal norms as the library is meant for being quiet but the guys went in making all sorts of noise. Nothing to research on the computer, just quite a bit of note taking and coming up with questions to ask the unknowing participants. My unknowing participants: Husband and his teenage sons that know I was raised better. Intrigued? Good, let me tell you all about this heart failure that if I say so was genius.

Heart Failure # 3: I cooked dinner as usual, nothing out of the norm. Set the table and everyone was comfortable eating the evening meal. Everything is perfect so far. That’s when I put my feet on the table next to my plate {I need to pause for a shudder} and somehow calmly ate while my husband was suffering heart failure. He couldn’t eat LOL!! He could not even move. HaHaHaHa I think it took almost an hour, at least that is what that improper move made it feel like, before he asks WHY? My assignment got an A+.

I hope you enjoyed these little comical tidbits. Let us know your little comical moments in the comments. See you next sip of the coffee.
