sometimes, great minds do not think alike

Here is an example of how opposite The Accountant and I can be at times…

Hubs says: Hey, do you wanna take Hand Gun II with me? (This is a class for gun permit holders. And no, I am not going to get into a political debate here about guns so don’t even bother.)

What I hear: Hey, do you wanna go to Canada with me?

What I think after doing a doubletake: Wow, that was completely random. I didn’t know hubs wanted to go to Canada!. What a super cool totally awesome husband I have!!!

What I say: YES!

What Hubs thinks after doing a doubletake: Wow, that was completely random. I didn’t know wifey wanted to take Handgun II! What a super cool totally awesome wife I have!!!

What I say: Ohhhhhh, lets go to Montreal first!

What Hubs does: Realization that a misunderstanding has occurred. Face falls. Knows he must clarify and tell his deaf wife what he really said and that no, he does not in fact, want to go to Canada.

Hubs says: No, I said “do you want to take Handgun II. Not, “do you want to go to Canada”.

What I do: Realization that a misunderstanding has occurred. Face falls. Knows she must clarify and tell her husband that no, she does not in fact, want to take Handgun II.

What I say: Oh. Well dang. No, I don’t want to take Handgun II. Sorry. I just want to go to Montreal.

Both: hysterical laughter.

I think that is what you call NOT being on the same page.

  1. LOVE that. I do it all the time. so… could you go to Canada if you go to handgunII? I think I would do it then… no?

  2. Sounds like a fair trade to me: I’ll go with you to your Handgun II if you’ll go with me to my Montreal. Yes, I’d say Danielle is on to something.
