Conversations With My Husband

February 27, 2015 Personal 18

Happy Friday, Bookworms!

Sometimes I feel that the conversations that go on in my house need to be shared with the world. It might explain some things. The following exchange occurred last weekend.


Jim: If your blog were a celebrity, who would it be?

Katie: Hmmm… I’m not really sure. Visions of Reese Witherspoon are dancing in my head, but I think that’s just because we share a birthday. What do you think?

Jim: John McEnroe.

Katie: WHAT? Seriously? I’m really nice, and my blog has never ONCE thrown a tennis racket!

Jim: Yet.

I’ve told you about my snarky eyebrow, right? My right eyebrow raises involuntarily and gives away whatever I’m thinking. Jim has named said eyebrow “Johnny.” All of which is necessary information to understand the following…

Jim: Johnny, why are you here? What do you have to add to this conversation?

Katie: You know I can’t control it!

Jim: I could take him in a fight. (To my eyebrow) I WILL REPLACE YOU WITH A SHARPIE!

Do any of you Bookworms out there have oddball conversations with your spouses?

    I don’t think McEnroe is a bad thing at all! He’s an AWESOME commentator now…smart, great with words, candid…doesn’t always just spew the “tennis world” party line B.S. Can you tell I watch a lot of tennis 🙂 So, I think you should wear the Johnny Mac badge with pride! And, sounds like he’d be jealous of your eyebrow…

    That’s hilarious. Not with my spouse because ya know, I lack a spouse. But I have had some of the funniest conversations with my best friend. To the point where strangers overhearing us start to slowly inch away O_o

    This is too cute! I wish my snarky eyebrow had a name! :)Your blog is the lovechild of Amy Poehler and Oprah. Surely that kid would be famous.

    Haha! Yes, we have crazy convos in my house too. And usually kids get involved and I’m pretty sure people would judge my parenting abilities on those conversations alone! Lol! Oh Katie, if only we lived closer, I’d love to hang out with you.

    I think it’s hilarious that your husband even asked which celebrity your blog would be (Reese seems like a great choice). this conversation is even funnier than the ones I have with the little.

    My husband and I once had a very serious(?) conversation about whether me drinking my own breastmilk would be considered cannibalism. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, believe me.

    Oh and on the eyebrow note, I have one random hair on my shoulder that randomly grows to outrageous lengths. My husband has named it Chubby and often converses with it. Really, I think as couples go, we would get along fanatically with you guys.

    That should be fantastically, not fanatically. My phone is acting odd because I’m over the border. DAMMIT, CANADA.
    I’m done now!

    This is adorable. I’m pretty sure me and Treland have had conversations about what a dinosaur-version of Sarah would be like (a Sarahsaurus!). And we have RIDICULOUS fake conversations with and about Gabby, in which she’s a vicious killer or she’s complaining about her struggles in society as a cat.

Talk to me, Bookworms!
