Tuesday Tales

Me: What did you take for lunch?
Joe: One of those Marie Claire meals.
Me: Uh, that’s a magazine.
Joe: And they make frozen meals? She’s a good cook!

Conversations

Joe: “What meds do you need to take tonight?”
Me: “Nothing.”
Joe: “Seriously? No shots?? No pills??”

A night without meds *is* pretty shocking. On the flip side, Joe and I are both taking an antibiotic for the next few days. When I told Joe he had to take it, he asked me what it was and then said, “Really? I have to take something too??”

Right. Because I’m giving myself several shots a day *and* taking pills, and he has to take one pill a day for 10 days. Poor baby. I have no sympathy for him!

Guitar Boy

Free Pictures | acobox.comJoe had a dream last night that he played the acoustic guitar. He woke me up this morning by telling me about his dream and how now he just has to get a guitar! “Plus, I can serenade our baby,” he said.

I think it’s great that he wants to get a guitar. In fact, I think it’ll be fun to watch him teach himself. Plus, it could be worse. He could have had a dream that he played the cymbals or the drums (too bad I couldn’t find free pictures of acoustic guitars for this post!). Although, he did threaten to buy cymbals so he could try out for the “Survivor” band. He always imitates the cymbals at Tribal Council.

I’m scared to think about what he might dream of tonight!

Cookie Monster

Joe: I really need to work out. I’m feeling really bad about myself.

Me: You look great, honey!

Joe: By the way, don’t be mad, but I ate the rest of the Samoas.

Me: That’s ok.

Joe: And by the rest of the Samoas, I mean the whole box. And by the whole box, I mean in one sitting.

Me: *That’s* why you need to work out!

Cold Pizza, Anyone?

Joe and his friend Stucka have decided they want to open a restaurant called Cold Pizza that would serve, well, cold pizza. Joe says they would make the pizzas the night before and open just for breakfast. “Who wouldn’t buy 4 slices of cold pizza?” he said. Cold pizza is pretty good. Maybe there could be a market for this…

Conversations: The Before the Anniversary Edition

Joe: Can I get you to make a card for me to give you for our anniversary?
Me: Crap! I need to get you a card!

*****

Me: I need to go to Walmart to pick something up. Do you want to come with me?
Joe: What are you getting?
Me: I can’t tell you.
Joe: It’s my anniversary present isn’t it? I know what it is. You’re totally getting your belly button pierced.
