mistaken punchline ...

If you've been reading for more than say, three seconds, then you know that we have a fair share of randomness and hilarity going on in this household. I mean, just last week, Dizzle spelled "DON'T" with a suppository instead of an apostrophe.

Many of the things that make me laugh on a daily basis are caused by user error, generally that of my children. They misuse household items. They misuse pieces of apparel. Most commonly, however, they misuse words, phrases or have incomplete thoughts.

Yesterday, Dizzle had the following conversation with me.

Dizzle: Mom, do you know what I am going to do when I am married?
Me: No, Dizzle. What?
Dizzle: My husband ...

(Long pause and blank stare from Dizzle, while I laugh)

Dizzle: No wait! I am going to do the work and my husband is going to do all the driving. Because I don't want to drive.

What Dizzle? You either work or drive? That makes no sense. Plus, I'm still caught up on that whole "my husband" thing ...

That's awesome! Not sure if I'd rather do all the driving or the working, though personally. Guess when I find a (new) husband, I'll have to have that talk with him!

The first time my husband met my brother was awkward. I had left the room, and my brother, trying to make casual conversation asked "so, what do you do in your spare time?"

To which my husband (then brand new boyfriend) replied "your sister."

OH man.
