MeN aRe TOTALLY FRoM MaRS

So you might have heard that it's freezing asky cold here in Chicago, like a negative one degree with 40 mile winds, right. Yeah, but my mood is actually OK. The closer we get to the end of the holiday, the better I feel. But that's not the point of this MeN aRe TOTALLY FRoM MaRS post here though.

Mr. Manic asks me today if I know where his long underwear is. Of course I do. I wore them last week. They're in the dirty laundry. I tell him they are in the dirty laundry. He retrieves them from the dirty laundry. He puts them on after getting them out of the dirty laundry. And goes outside to shovel, wearing his dirty long underwear.

You sensing a theme here?

After a while he comes back in to get ready for church, and as he's taking off his clothes (NO, this is NOT one of THOSE posts!), here is the conversation that ensues:

He looks at his long underwear as he removes them and then he looks at me and asks:

Him: "Are these dirty?"

Me: "Are you serious?"

Him: "I don't know." Dumb look on his face.

Me: "ARE YOU SERIOUS?!"

Him: Shrug.

Me: Stare daggers at him.

Him: "What? I don't know." And he continues to pull off the long underwear.

THE LONG UNDERWEAR HE PULLED OUT FROM THE DIRTY LAUNDRY AN HOUR AGO.

Me: "ARE YOU FOR REAL SERIOUS?"

Him: "I don't know! I don't know how you operate things around here."

Me: "I'm not THAT BAD of a HOUSEWIFE!"

If you wore them to shovel snow, then they're dirty. :)

LOL!!!

Maybe he hit himself in the head with the snow shovel?

Oh, you made me have to tell my in-laws what I was doing I was laughing so hard. Your husband sounds like ummm mine! Cracks. Me. Up.

How are you doing in the snow now? I'm afraid it's going to snow even more now that we're out of town :(

HA!! This caused a coffee spew! If it was in my house he'd have to get them off the floor, I'm too tired (hence coffee not tea spew) chasing after kids that won't sleep to put things in the laundry basket. Right now they're going straight from worn to floor to machine.

LMAO!

They came from the dirty laundry.

He wore them to shovel snow.

Shoveling snow is not a common method to wash laundry as far as I know.

So I'm guessing they're dirty.

I'm fairly sure that conversation has taken place in my house regarding something from the "dirty" pile.

What, you're deleting posts on me here now? C'mon -- I'm totally intrigued by that first paragraph!

Could you have smiled at him sweetly and said, "Dirty laundry? I don't think so. Why do you ask?" Not that I personally could've pulled that off.
