ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

Some nights it's better not to talk

Mrs. Mullet, after a rough day at work: "I need a hug."

Chuck: "Hold on."

Mrs. Mullet: "Now."

Chuck: "I'm coming."

Mrs. Mullet: "What's taking so long? Don't you want to be there for me in my fragile emotional state?"

Chuck: "I always want to be there for you in your fragile emotional states."

Mrs. Mullet: "States? Who said anything about multiple states? I didn't say state, plural. I said state. As in one."

Chuck: "One what?"

Hehe. Really they should just keep their mouths shut and give the hugs shouldn't they??

Julia said...

They are clueless. And maddening.

Pricilla said...

Men! They just don't get it, do they?

DysFUNctional Mom said...

My next line would've been: Just forget it! Then I would've pouted.
Awesome communicator that I am.

harumph. Do we reallyhave to tell them? Shouldn't they be able to pick up on the drooling and flopping head?

Men have such a special way of making us forget why we are upset.

What was on the TV?

Man, you have to work hard for hugs. Should have just asked for a butt pat.

You should have said you needed sex with no talking...wonder how quick he would have jumped. Men!

Jeanne said...

I think I've had that conversation, but my daughter never has. You know why? Because she's married to a woman.

Just sayin'....

Grand Pooba said...

Hahaha! I love Chuck.

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

I usually throw something hard at around this point of the conversation. I feel better when I hear the scream....

blognut said...

I love Chuck. Really.

omchelsea said...

Stupid boys. Stop with the mouth flapping and...oh. Hang on.

Oh my goodness - men just have NO clue do they?! LOL

Chuck needs to learn to hug quietly when requested. I am sorry you had a rough day at work. I hope things are better.

Hugs help. Their conversation not so much.
