Quick Convo

Actual conversation between hubby and me at 3:45 a.m. in my office this morning...why we were up? Why not?

Him, looking at my bookshelves:
I wonder how many thousands you've spent on books?

Me, quick-witted even at 3:45 a.m.:
Less than I would have if I were a Shoe Whore.

SO f*#&ing true. I have been a shoe whore - pre-kids. Books are far less expensive .. and less painful too .. well most of the time.

Wow...you know what I would have been thinking/doing at 3:45 a.m.?

" There's the alarm....time to get up."

3:45am???!!! What were you doing? Is your office your sex room? When our son slept with us we used the guest room as our sex room.

I'm filing that one back into my brain so I can use it on my hubs the next time he makes a comment or question like that. Don't you love it when you can come back so fast?

Was he speechless? He was speechless right?

I love a comeback that shuts the door on the whole conversation.

Shoe whore? All this time I thought it was called a shoe horn. No wonder people always look at me like that when I'm in the shoe store.
