I know some of you may roll your eyes in the air - but these conversations DO happen - OMG they DO - and on a frequent basis.................
Sometime's I can barely believe them myself - as in this case in point - this morning.
John was on the road - I called him - because I need some flowers in my world right now
Suzan says - Could you do me a favor?
John says - Sure - what?
Suzan says - Could you bring me home a big batch of white flowers?
JOHN SAYS - I BOUGHT FLOUR IN THE GROCERIES THIS WEEK
I waited for the punch line - impatiently -
Suzan says - Are you serious?
John says - Dead serious - you asked me to pick some up - don't you remember?
John says - I think you're losing your mind you know
Possibly - this may just be the straw that broke the camel's back
Suzan tries again - pretending the first part of the conversation did NOT take place
Suzan says - could you bring me home a big batch of white flowers do you think?
BECAUSE I KNOW HE'S JUST KIDDING ME
John says - Look - I don't have time for this - I already bought flour
Suzan says - I DON'T WANT FIVE ROSES F.L.O.U.R. - I WANT WHITE HYDRANGEAS
John says - You always use 5 Roses - I TOLD YOU I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS I'll talk to you later
Suzan says - DO NOT BRING HOME ANY MORE FLOUR - F.L.O.U.R.
Suzan says - I want a batch of WHITE FLOWERS - F.L.O.W.E.R.S.
because this is all wrong for the living room - as resourceful as I am - I just can't make it work.
When it's good for you
And you're feelin' alright
Well you just roll over
And turn out the light
And you don't bring me
( unless you count the 5 roses he so gallantly placed in my hands last week )
Have a great rest of the day - I'm going to try to arrange the flour............
He redeemed himself
enough for a glass of water in the kitchen ( next to Audrey )
I fancy the glass up a little with a glass coaster
and some in the living room
and because he brought them home I'm making him a beef stew
And which I'll use the first bouquet he bought me to thicken the gravy with :)
Well, you already KNOW I have his twin brother living here with me! When my son was staying with us after his divorce I called him and his Dad - Itch and Scratch!ReplyDelete
You know he is going to call your from the grocers and tell you he CAN'T FIND White Hydrangea FLOUR because all they have is Five Roses flour!!!! Wait for the call.....
LOL - you are too funny!ReplyDelete
But have you tried arranging the flour in an attractive vase? Might work...ReplyDelete
LOL - men... gotta luv em!!!ReplyDelete
You know Suzan, I gave a little thought and maybe John needs a hearing aid??/ This seems to be a regular occurrence. Maybe he is just playing to see what you will do, nay, I am agreeing with some others, his a guy. You have to laugh at this one f or sure!!!ReplyDelete
bawhahahahaha, I'm still laughing!!ReplyDelete
thanks for the belly laugh!
Debbie @ Flower Child Designs
This is hilarious, Suzan :)ReplyDelete
Oh how funny Suzan, 5 White Rose Flour - he's just paying attention - I think he does need a hearing aid - has he been tested yet? To funny.ReplyDelete
This is TOO funny, Suzan! Okay, he doesn't bring you flowers, but does he sing you love songs? And if he does, ask him why the Brits seem to lose their accent when they sing. I could never understand this linguistic phenomenon!ReplyDelete
O.M.G. I die.ReplyDelete
This is hilarious. I understand why you had to post this, and I'm thankful for the laugh. XOXO
Oh thank you for the afternoon laugh Suzan! (or should I say John?)ReplyDelete
I can't stop laughing!!!!!
OH MY DEAR!!!!!
I wish I was the fly on the wall when he gets home and sees the 5 Rose flour!!! This is absolutely priceless!!! On valentines day you should give him....You know...5 red roses!!!!
I know what the problem was!!!!! You were speaking in English and he was thinking in French!!!!
I think we've all had days like that with our husband and kids. Have a nice BIG glass of wine and relax for the evening watching you beautiful bag of Five Red Roses!!!
What would I do without you and your Blog!!!
Ahhh he is a good bloke, even if he is a little crazy sometimes.ReplyDelete
Oh the update is lovely and sweet of you to make him a stew!ReplyDelete
So funny Suzan! It must be a barrel of laughs at your home all the time!ReplyDelete
What a sweetie, please forgive him. He finally got it right!
I have said it before, I would love to be a fly on the wall to listen to you and John chat.ReplyDelete
Hahaha...you do make me smile! Well, it looks like you got your flowers, after all. As crazy as it was :)ReplyDelete
I'm wondering how John would look sporting a shiny ear trumpet! lolReplyDelete
He was wonderful for bringing you the flowers (not hydrangeas, right, but carnations??) Oh well, white flowers. And not white flour. But keep the arrangement of Five Roses Flour. It might grow on me.
He sure did save himself from sleeping on the couch staring all night at the "5 Red Rose Flower!!!!"
Beautiful flowers BTW!!!! LMBO!!!!
:-) Ha Ha!ReplyDelete
So funny Suzan!ReplyDelete
Oh my word! This could be used by comediennes (sp?) and make $$$. You and John need to go out on the road and just talk....you'd make the big bucks! :)ReplyDelete
Love the flowers!
Hehehe. That's funny Suzan. Poor John. At least he finally got it right. Enjoy your flour and flowers.ReplyDelete
You guys are just too funny! Love that your flower brand is 5 Roses! Never heard of that!ReplyDelete
You guys are too funny! Love that your flour brand is 5 Roses! Never hears of that!ReplyDelete
I really had to giggle at this, are men all the same I wonder? I actually saw the most gorgeous white hydrangeas in the flower shop up the road yesterday and wanted to buy some but they were NZ$9 each which is about $8 USA dollars! I of course would have needed several but in the end changed my mind. However, seeing your hydrangea I think I might pop up tomorrow and buy one and a few other flowers and take some photos in case there is a painting inspiration.ReplyDelete
Glad to see he redeemed himself! LOL! You two are hilarious! XOXOReplyDelete
OMG I'm sitting here at 12:56 AM in the midst of menopausal insomnia about ready to pull my hair out and just lost it at pic of the Five Roses! ROFLMHO...awe heck it's almost 2 in the morning...ROFLMAO - thank you for that :)ReplyDelete

So funny, thanks for starting my day with a laugh. I will visit often.ReplyDelete
LOL this one had me cracking up, Suzan! You two are so funny...all the time!ReplyDelete
You know, he might make an attractive white flour when the Five Roses is dumped on his head :)ReplyDelete
I hate to think men are shallow. but they are. right? at least your stories of John help us to know it's not just OUR husband.ReplyDelete
An amusing post. Glad you got your flowers in the end!ReplyDelete
Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.
I laughed so hard!! You guys are SO funny :)ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness Suzan, this was so funny! He redeemed himself though :)ReplyDelete
lolol! Oh good gravy! You DO live a challenged life, don't you, you poor thing! lolol Well, just figure that he's still training....and has a way to go. That's what I tell myself when hubby pulls something like that. lololReplyDelete
Consider yourself lucky, my males bring me dead mice when they want to make me happy! And they don't photograph very well on the living-room table either!ReplyDelete
Now that is real funny...ReplyDelete
the difference between men and women.
Haha So cute. BTW, hubby brought me flour yesterday too.ReplyDelete
I am howling! The story was funny enough, but putting the flour in a vase? LMAO!!! And using the bouquet in a stew? OMG, Suzan, this is why I love your posts!ReplyDelete
So funny! I know you can do something with the flour. Husband inspired designs by Susan.ReplyDelete
Aw you made him a stew. :) :)ReplyDelete
I can't remember the last time I got flowers. If I called and asked for some, they still wouldn't make their way here, lolol
You're a lucky gal. :)
