Shall I read between the teeth marks, my love?

Dear Chuck,

First, thank you for making my lunch today. When we were sitting at dinner last night and I told you about my stay-at-home mom friend, Marcia, who lovingly makes lunch for her husband every morning, you took the clue and got your ass in gear. I could have done without the mound of mayonnaise and three slices of cheese, but I'll chalk it up to you being new to the whole weight conscious aspect of my life.

Second, you really were listening when I told you how Marcia personalizes the lunch each day by leaving a love note in her hubby's lunch bag and how I'd swoon over such affection. Your interpretation of said conversation was a bit lacking, however. Taking a bite out of my sandwich and leaving a note that reads, "Bite me" hardly oozes hearts and flowers—though you were consistent in your message. As someone in marketing, I can really appreciate that.



Let's regroup and try this again next week, shall we?

Kisses and donkey farts,
Your wife

P.S. George's status on Facebook is "single." I'm just sayin'.

awwww! That is sweet....in a weird way!! He left his mark, right?!

Donkey Farts? Is that anyway to react to your loving husband's affections? Chicks! Can't please 'em, can't outsleeze 'em.

Chuck is a funny guy! Always interesting to see how men interpret our requests. I always picture that little girly request standing on the edge of the huge divide between the lobes of their brains, trying to make that giant leap and falling into the chasm, where it winds up being interpreted by the rhinocephalon -- which is why they always wind up someplace primal and smelly....

Awwww, how sweet is he?

The whole Bite Me thing is just a little 'out there' but at least he tried. Right?

Suzi said...

I loved it!!!! I would LOVE that type of acknowledgment in my lunch IF my hubby ever made me lunch. I, on the other hand, am the one who gets up when the rooster crows to fix him lunch.

Chuck, want to make me lunch? I would cherish your note and bit mark...a sign of your love and effort. ;-)

George is single?
I think George came on to me once, on Facebook.

A samich is a right good expression of love and "Bite Me" is intimate talk.

Keely said...

Um, HE MADE YOU LUNCH. The note was just icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned.

Wait, was there cake? Because then you don't even NEED a note.

Leanne said...

Just a sandwich? If he was going to say 'bite me' the least he could do was throw in a cupcake or something... Sesh. Men.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

OK, you know you laughed! That's pretty funny.

Lindy said...

I don't get love notes anymore. I get lunch brought to me - in the form of a Starbucks coffee...which as far as I'm concerned, might as well be flowers.

Becki said...

Nicely done :)

The Mother said...

Wow, that's one heck of a message in your lunch.

I think I'd follow up with a flip lock on the bedroom door.

Jen said...

That is sweet. I'd take a half eaten sandwich made by some else any day since I tend to eat out of the fridge when it comes time for my own lunch, less dishes to clean up and all that.

Who is George? I'm single too, and sick of it.

Sheila said...

WOw! You have to give him an A for effort, right? LOL!

Stacie's Madness said...

lmfao... bite me.

could have been a straw in there that said, well, you know where this is goin...

Big Mama Cass said...

Haha! Your Chuck sounds a lot like my Chuck. :)

Mrsbear said...

Nothing says love like mayo and four slices of cheese. Broccoli florets just don't hold the same greasy mystique. Srsly, I'd be ecstatic if my husband made me a sandwich...or brought me anything edible...EVER.

Pricilla said...

well,at least he left you MOST of the sandwich?

Staci at Just Bloggled said...

Let's hope all the mayo and cheese isn't covering up spit or worse, LOL.

I have given you a blog award on my blog. Here is a link to it: http://www.justbloggled.com/2009/08/yay-i-got-another-blog-award.html. Congrats.

Men. We say one thing, they hear another and then they do something completely different. "Bite Me". Haha! That's priceless!

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

hahahahahahaha, that is hilarious! I love it. That is so something I would do...out of love, of course ;)

Grand Pooba said...

Oh my gosh that is so funny! Almost sounds like something my husband would do, but he wouldn't actually put the effort in to make the "sandwich" he'd just leave the note.

Chuck is brilliant, I have to say!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

OMG! That is just way too funny for words! I was laughing so hard as I read this I had to read it out loud to my hubby...it was difficult to read between peals of laughter, but he enjoyed it, too. ;)

He listened. Love it!!

mo.stoneskin said...

You'll have to admit it though, "bite me" is very apt.

In defense of adoration—even in the deli line

The toddler was all over his mother. Cam and I were in line at the deli at Mulletville Lite's town grocery store, watching the lov...
