Mr. Manic Mating Call

First of all, enter this contest please!

Second, for the winners of the Mamma Mia! CDs -- great news! I have burned the CDs for YOU! I will get to the post office to mail them THIS WEEK! Sorry it has taken so long. Also, I saw the movie AGAIN! FOR THE THIRD TIME!

Third, this is what happened this morning:

So, I'm dusting,

(I'll wait a minute while you pick yourselves off the floor.)

because the house is a mess, and the two boys are outside playing

(Tukey riding his new bike because TOMORROW he turns SEVEN!)

and Diva is in the family room singing along to High School Musical on the Wii.

(Is that how you spell Wii?)

And I'm reaching up with the long-handled duster to snag a particularly annoying strand of webby thing that has been netting its way through the foyer for some time now, and Mr. Manic calls over to me:

"Do you got time to knock one off?"

Yes, this is Manic Foreplay.

post script cuz I just gotta tell you this: Before we "knocked one off," I finished dusting and I made Mr. Manic go into the office and type out the phrase "do you got time to knock one off" so I could remember it so I could blog about it later. AND ALSO, there was more I WANTED to write about what happened DURING the knocking of oneself off, like the little sound-bytes of what was said during the "knocking one off" but he'd probably kill me. Sometimes I wish to God this blog was anonymous just for the laughs.

OMG! That sounds so familiar. I'm laughing so hard my hubby is wondering the hell is wrong with me.

LOL!!!

I have a question for you. I read a book that you had suggested (I know you find that hard to believe!), but now I can't remember the name of the book or the author!;) What I do remeber, is that it had a rubber ducky on the front cover, and it was about a woman who raised a baby on her own,the guy went out to get something and then came back after she was getting involved with someone else.

Can you help me out here?? ;)

I LOVED IT!!!

I wanted to see what other books she has written. I need a good book to read!

By the way, I think you just won wife of the year award!

when you have kids, you take it when you can get it, period!

secretmom said...

OK, that's hilarious, especially the fact that you made him go type the phrase out--and he did! i guess he figured anything to get it! hahahah

Shelley said...

"Knock one off?" Ok, that's a new one. Be still my fluttering heart, Mr. Manic. How do you resist that romantic man? lol

Happy Birthday, Tukey! My youngest turns 6 a day after your youngest turns 7! Ok, didn't going through the summer in your third trimester just blow?

Yes, that is how you spell Wii.

I just finished Driving Sideways...LOVED IT!

SgtSudsWife said...

Hahaha that is great.Sounds like something someone I know would say.

I love how you made him go type it so you wouldn't forget it.

"Knock one off." See, now I'd taken that as let's go for a cocktail, not the, er, cock-tail.

What is he, Tony Soprano? "Eh? You gots time to knock one off then go get some mortadel?" Too funny, Manic!

Jenster said...

That's so romantic...

Caryn Caldwell said...

LOL! Yeah, that's sexy all right. Kind of sounds like he had it on his list of things to do for the day and he wanted to get it over with.

Michelle said...

With all the buildup, I sure hope it's worth it ;) I love the line, but I'm afraid my husband would latch onto it too well.

And yep, you've just hit the nail on the head as to why I keep my blog from my husband and family!

Michelle--Laying some pipe! Hahah, Now that I think about it, seriously, I think I remember MY GRANDFATHER saying something about "putting the shaft in the DISHWASHER!!!!" NO LIE!!! OMG!!!

Colorado Writer said...

Hilarious!

March to the Sea said...

wow..with the kids awake/home. Good for you!

Trish Ryan said...

The title alone makes my day.

Grandmother Goddess of the Garden said...

You and Mr. Manic are hysterical! I do like your memory of Grandpa putting the shaft in the dishwasher!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TURKEY!

Well I've never been asked to "knock one off." My husband likes the term "fool around," which can mean a variety of things. ;)

Eileen said...

Mr. Manic- what a romantic.

Kristabella said...

Funny! I thought he was talking about drinking booze. Which only means I have a drinking problem.

Mabunny said...

ROFLMAO! never had it put quite that way! hahahahaha, sorry can't stop laughing...
whats even more amazing is that you actually swooned after Mr Manic said that and actually 'knocked one off'.
Hopefuly one DIDN'T FALL off!

On The Verge said...

Your hubby is too funny.

I gave you an award on my blog tonight.

Barrie said...

I am laughing so hard I can barely type. Must ask the dh if he knows the expression "knock one off."!!

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Not that the humorous part of this was lost on me (b/c it wasn't!) but I would have been compelled to say: "Ok honey, but just so we're clear that's: 'Do I have time to knock one off?' I know, I'm a real romatic that way!

Andie said...

are our husbands related? scott will ask me to "wipe one out" for him.

missed reading your blog while I was evacuated/without power! good to see great content when I came back!

Expat Mom said...

Oh my goodness, that was just too funny. And the comments are hilarious . . . is there a woman out there whose hubby isn`t that point blank with his foreplay? :D

My hubby says "Un rapidito?" (he`s Guatemalan) which means "a quickie?"
