    I think this is the correct heading for this post...

    My Wife is rambling. I cannot understand what she is saying. I assume this is a women are from Venus, men are from Mars thing.

    I can only understand short phrases of what she is saying. Here are the phrases I can understand amongst her sobs.

    "Your Chickens"

    Then what sounds like could be swear words, definitely something from a potty mouth.

    "My tomatoes"

    More ranting and sobbing....

    What I need to know is she trying to thank me for allowing my chickens to weed and aerate the ground under her tomatoes and do some pest control?

    When you mention these words randomly - tomatoes, chickens, potty mouth, sobbing - I get a vision of your wife finding your chickens in her tomatoes, doing what chickens do best, eating them ALL..........

    You and your chickens are in Soooooooooo much trouble!

    Best of luck solving this delima......... remember we are all on your side!

    I know my chickens were in her tomatoes, BUT I instructed them to just pull weeds and eat bugs. They would never eat a tomato, they are perfect lil chicks!

    These threads are why I love this site! My chickens are perfect, too. :)

    But they eat red things before they eat green things......good bye tomatoes!

    Is your wife still speaking to you?

    At the moment, I cannot really call the sounds emitting from her as speech.

    Any tomatoes that are waist high or lower belong to the chickens anyway, so I don't know what she is ranting about.[​IMG]

    When she is speaking to me in a rational voice, I will mention this logic to her. Thanks for saving my sex life!

    When she becomes coherent, she may tell you that you are having chicken soup for dinner tonight.[​IMG]
