Love & Sarcasm

If you asked me what the secrets to a happy marriage are, one would be good natured teasing/sarcasm. At least for us, it works. I give no guarantees, mind you. Here are some recent examples...

We were about to go in Giant Eagle.
Jim: "Maybe they'll have some of those things you need in here".
Jen: "No. I just told you a while ago, I've only seen them at Babies R Us. Do you listen to anything I say?"
Jim: "Huh?" (Smiling)

When leaving Target...
Jim: "I just saw those pajamas, like Dylan has, with the feet, in adult sizes!"
Jen: "Why didn't you get some?"
Jim: "He's supposed to look like me, not the other way around".
Jen: "But, we could have used that for our Christmas card".

While sitting on the couch last night, watching TV...
Jen: "So, the Circus is coming to town..."
Jim: (Without missing a beat) "You thinking about joining it?"

I wish he had gotten those pajamas for the Christmas card.

Those are all such funny conversations and I agree - a bit of humor goes a long way - especially in a marriage. You guys sound like a great couple - a lot of fun!

Have a good week, Jen - Kellan

I think it is the only way Hubby and I have stayed married. Seriously.

Very funny conversations! Like Kellan said.

Janet said...

Oh, yeah, we have those conversations, too. I think they're essential.

Well, are you? Joining the circus, that is.

Sounds like a happy marriage to me! Wish you all got those pjs and had the picture!

Ha... sort of works that way over here too. Loving the pic of Dylan on the top by the way, has been a while since I dropped by.
