Conversations with DH

To read other conversations I've had with DH ('dear husband'), go here and here. Trust me, they're worth the click. There's talk of fishy-smelling women and chewing gum. See, I knew you'd want to know about fishy women!

A little background on this week's conversation- I have this game, where I come up with a really ignorant word, and then use it as much as I can. There's nothing better than a (conservative looking) mom using the words "holy champagne supernova!" all day. Other past words I've already used out are "sweet", "craptastic" and "radical". If it's a really good word, it'll get a reaction like

"Did you just say radical?"

"Like, totally!"

Get the idea? Okay, so my dear, sweet husband has started stealing my words. The nerve! Here's how it goes between us:

Him: That person's driving was craptastic.

Me: Hey...that's my word.

Him: I'm married to you, so I get to use any word you use... by default.

Me: Dude, go find your own word. I work really hard to find just the right ones....and then you go and take them for yourself. Go find your own damn word. (I try not to call my husband "dude" very much, but sometimes it just fits, ya know?)

Him: I like your words better.

Me: Have you even tried to come up with your own?

Him: No.

Me: Why not?

Him: Because I can just use yours.

Me: (Swears under my breath)


So now my goal is to come up with a word that is so bad, that even the husband wont use it. I'll let you know when I come up with something. Any ideas?

I'd suggest something involving the word "menstruation"... he won't touch that word with a 10 foot pole.

My personal favorite non-word is
"ain't" As in that "ain't" a word.

Totally radical, Tasha, just toally radical this post is. LOL. It appears that I've already joined your DH in stealing your trove of vocabulary treasures.

I've been meaning to come visit your site after you leaving comments at my blogsite, but life just got on the way, as usual. But I'm here and found your blog awesome.

I'll go check out that post about the Breast Implants you had suggested.

Also, it's a pleasure to make an acquaintance with another Tasha. Thanks for visiting my blog.

G'Day,
Tasha
