Fly On The Wall With The Man Who Won't Let Me Sleep

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, five brave bloggers are welcoming you into their homes for a peek at what goes on behind closed doors. At my house, the fly is always entertained by my husband's witty comebacks. No matter what comment I make, Mac has something to add to it. Unfortunately, these funny conversations often take place late at night while I'm trying to sleep. I say something, then he says something weird back, and then I can't stop laughing, which sends me into a coughing fit....and then I have to pee. That pretty much sums up my evenings.

     Here's a little sampler platter of our latest midnight conversations:

"At your funeral, instead of putting up sentimental photos of you in a slideshow, I'm going to share photos of every weird thing you've ever done."
"That's going to be the longest funeral in history."

"You must be getting old. The first thing you do every morning is take Meloxicam just so you can get out of bed without  pain."
"It could be worse. What if the first thing I needed to get out of bed was an antiinflammatory suppository?"

"Your stomach feels like a big, hard lump."
"Don't worry----that's not a tumor. It's last night's noodle casserole."

"You're not sleeping well because the window is open and there's a strong breeze blowing through."
"No, it's because there are too many strong rum drinks blowing through me."

"Can you reach the light switch? Your arm is longer than mine."
"Not everything on me is long anymore, you know......"

"When I put the food that I ate today into my Fitness Pal app, it answered by telling me I need to go on a diet."
"That's because your stomach has a built-in GPS system for navigating the best snacks in the house. "

     Maybe tonight when I go to bed, I'll just fake-sleep so that my husband doesn't keep me awake. Ha! Who am I kidding? My bladder will never let me sleep through the night anyway....

  1. Your conversations made me laugh, mostly because I can relate, we have a lot of those same kinds of conversations. I never realized before how lucky I am that we have them during the day and not when I'm trying to sleep.

  2. He doesn't miss a beat, does he? I get it - I do. And after 42 years, I've resorted to earplugs at night!

  3. Your family always makes me laugh!

  4. And this is why I don't have a Fitness Pal App: "When I put the food that I ate today into my Fitness Pal app, it answered by telling me I need to go on a diet."
    LOL. I love being a fly on the wall at your house, Marcia <3

  5. Now I’m worried about what I may be saying late at night. Husby is known to record strange things...
    I like the idea of a ‘weird things’ photo show at funerals. And I make casserole like that, too! ;)

  6. Maybe you should start making a folder of the weird pics you want at your funeral so you have a say in the matter!

    I adore the pic of your little grand hugging the dog. Absolutely precious

  7. Anti inflammatory suppository?! OMGosh I almost spit on my screen.

  8. So cute! It's great to know you both still have humor in your life. Love the funeral conversation, which reminded me of a joke. "At my funeral, take the bouquet of flowers on my casket and throw it toward the spectators to see who's next." :D I also love the pictures.
