I did the exact same thing to my husband yesterday. I was watching you tube videos on whoopie slings and he was chitter chatting about his day... I don't know how long that lasted, or what he said but I think I nodded at all the appropriate times...
Well, Genuine Draft has a new hobby that is very relevant to this thread.
I must have gotten lazy, but she is on to my little game of ignoring her while she spouts on about stuff that is probably important to her; I guess I'd know for sure if I paid more attention. She has, within the last week, started to 'call' me on it. She'll go on and on about whatever for, I don't know, 10 hours and then abruptly ask me "What did I just say?". She had me floundering around for a couple of days until I just gave up on it. Monday night, she went about her babbling and then asked me that question. My response was "I don't have a clue". That set her off babbling some more about something or another, but I figured I no longer had to listen since I was already in trouble.
She has stopped asking me that question now.
I see your lips moving but all I hear is "Waa, Wa, Waa, Wa, Waa, Wa, Waaa"
like the teacher from The Peanuts.
I never do this, not ever in the thirty two years I've been married, nope, never
You're gonna need a bigger hammock
Make no mistake, I will pay a price. My lady is very craft and she'll just wait until she finds the right opportunity. No clue what that price will be, but I will most certainly pay.
There is a reason she and I get along as well as we do, thank goodness.
