Off To A Good Start?

Morning Shadows

I awoke yesterday morning, saw the time and swung out of bed, forgetting I'd thrown my water-resistant down vest over myself during the night.

Instead of my feet touching ground, I slid over the vest and off the mattress heading toward the floor... not a big deal, except one of the dogs was laying beneath me!

None too gracefully, I hit the floor mostly horizontally, eliciting a string of at least ten swear-words strung together. (The dog was fine.)

Just a bit sore, I gimped my way into the kitchen for a lovely breakfast of coffee and some Advil.

My husband was already up, having some tea, and didn't say a word.

Later that day I mentioned my mishap to the spouse, and he admitted he'd heard the whole thing!

My mouth agape, I inquired "AND...?"

He responded "When I heard those blue-darters coming out of your mouth, I figured you were OK."

Ain't love grand?

romani heart-
Yeah, I told him thanks- "thanks a friggin lot!"

eclectic-
Mr. SB's contention was that if I were swearing like that, I was breathing- and if I was breathing, I could yell for help.
Sensible, but...
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too!

Boy, that is very much a man thing. My own beloved has said very much the same thing to me. He won't even come running if there's a loud crash in the kitchen, if it has the infamous 'f' word behind it. I almost accidentally threw his most favorite coffee cup through the kitchen window the other night; didn't break either one, but man-oh-man did I let out a string of cuss words. He came up the stairs later and didn't even ask, so I told him what he wasn't concerned about. He said "well, I don't see the window broken, and my cup is on the hook, so ...?" Ah, go on with ya, get outta my kitchen. Men.

I constantly tease The Hubs that he would not notice me walking in or out of the room unless I'm on fire.

He'll be watching TV and I'll walk past him, go upstairs, get some laundry, come downstairs, walk past him again, go into the laundry room, come OUT of the laundry room and go to the kitchen. When I make noise in there, he'll say "When did you come out of the office? I didn't even see you walk by just now"

Nice.

Yah when I'm swearing like a sailer, he assumes I'm ok too.

Then again, when he's coughing (sounds like he's choking), I wait until he's done to say "Are you ok?"...as I know he can't answer when he's hacking (coughing means he's still breathing and not really choking....RIGHT?) ;-)

susie-
If the dog was cursing, she did it under her breath. Good girl!

cheesecakey-
My point exactly!
He could have at least inquired as to my well being!

sylvana-
You might be right!

indiaiynke-
Didn't you want to go ahead and finish the job after that?
I once became so angry at the ex that I wanted to throw a full plate of spaghetti at him. I weighed the cleanup consequences, carefully aimed, and threw it at the wall directly behind him. It was worth the cleanup!

soozieq-
My husband is usually observant, unless he's watching football. He'll answer questions and all, but I could likely walk by 'nekked' and he wouldn't notice.
I guess that's better than saying ewwwwww.

First, I really like the picture.

Now, that sounds just like something Ichabod would say. I'm always jumping up or, at least, asking if he's okay. He doesn't get it.

The comment about our moving all over the place and the guys just don't see it? We talked about how men and women process things differently when I was in that training last week. It explained why guys can be so single-minded and focused while women multi-task so well.

Men use one side of the brain at a time. Women use both. The instructor didn't know that this is because women are better able to use their corpus callosums, the part that goes down the middle of our brains. Men's are more like a block/divider while ours are always directing traffic.

That's why men assume that because we're feeling emotional that we can't be using logic at the same time. Most men are not physiologically capable of doing that.

squirl-
Thank you, hope you had a great Thanksgiving too!
You are just so educated!
Some men I know probably don't even use the full half- brain they should be using...

susie-
I belatedly wish you and yours a Happy Holiday!
I'll definitely stay away from the oog!
