    Don't get me wrong.. I love my husband, but he's litterally Woody from cheers. He's sweet, and very naive. And I mess with him so bad! I can't help it. Its so much fun! (I realize I've probally got a first class express ticket to the guy downstairs for this) A few years back, we were invited to the national Easter Egg Roll at the White House.. My husband was excited! He asked me what it would be like.. I had no idea! I told him that it was like a great big company picnic, and that I had him signed up to play badmitten with Henry Kissenger and Oliver North... And that I wasn't sure, but I thought I was able to get him in a potato sack race with John Kerry. He said "really!" I said "oh yes!" He just sets himself up, and I can't pass it up. Last year, our cat was sick, someone asked about feline HIV. So I called My husband, and asked if he remembered if slick had been check for it. He freaked out! He paniced and wanted to know if we'd all have to be tested! I told him... go on and call the doctor and tell him you want to be tested for Feline HIV! ( I didn't let him do it though) Not to say I don't get may share! He messes with me too. When Ray Charles died he was the one who told me, and I said "ahh why?" He told me he wrecked his bike at bike week! And said it was payback for the Whitehouse incedent! I just wonder if I'm the only one guilty of this, and if not... I'd love to hear your stories!

    Yes, I do. and your right it is great fun. We have been together for 23 years married for 20, so he doesn't do very well in the listening department. If I really need him to hear me I need to make eye contact. This has turned into a beautiful thing.
    In the general course of a bs conversation he has the automated answers down cold (nods, yesses, uhuhs) so he believes I think he is actually listening.

    example - "Honey, I thought you were going to clean out the pellet stove today. Did you forget?"

    - when did I say that?

    I asked you yesterday and you said yes.

    At this point he cleans the pellet stove - it's much easier than admitting he wasn't actually listening.

    many , many home repairs happen in this exact manner.

    teeheehee...I do that with the bf.

    "But you promised to clean out your hamster's cage yesterday!" "I did?" "Yes! Right after you said you would cook dinner tonight! I forget things just so you won't have to do them..."

    Yep...there's a special place downstairs for people like us...

    I dont know if it counts, but DD's fiance told her to check her blinker fluid cause she told him she thought her blinker was going out. It was blinking real fast. She ALMOST fell for it.

    [​IMG] We went on a picnic to a nearby lake while we were dating (in PENNSYLVANIA). We were sitting next to the water talking, and saw these white, 5-gallon buckets floating way out in the lake at regularly spaced intervals. He was wondering if I knew what they were for. I started making up a story about how they were "crab pots." They were put there by men to catch crabs in, and how they would put bait in them, the crabs would crawl in them and be trapped. I had him going for ten minutes, believing that I knew what they were! [​IMG]

    I was a bridesmaid at a wedding 2 years ago. The groom's cousin was equally naieve. As we were talking he told me how excited he was to go to the bachelor party, as he'd never gone to a club before. I told him "if you want to make the dancers happy, tip them in quarters, so they can do laundry tomorrow without going to the bank first"..... [​IMG]

    He did. [​IMG]

    During the wedding photos, Leo had a black eye, apperantly a stripper punched him. [​IMG]
