Good times with the husband


Hubs and I got separated at Walmart. When we found each other again, we both had on a giant bear head hat.


So imagine this bear’s head on our heads. But pretend it’s not creepy.

We’d come across the display separately, weighed the pros and cons of “who knows who’s had their head in this thing” vs. “gosh, it would be funny” and decided funny won. We saw each other, froze, and immediately cracked up. Recently he had a bad cold. Knowing that there’s always a peak day to any illness, when he left for work one morning, I said with a big, encouraging smile, “I hope this is your worst day!”

He paused in the doorway and looked at me. “This is the only instance in which that could possibly be a nice thing to say.”

Who loves you, baby?

  1. I agree with the other comments that say you two are meant for each other. I also wanted to add that you two are such a good example to your kids. How awesome that they get to see Mom and Dad laughing and having fun together.

  2. This is so awesome! I can see you two sitting in a quite little cafe, bear heads on, enjoying a cup of coffee and conversation. (Not sure how you would drink in those heads, but I’m sure you could figure it out). 🙂

    • I know, right? We’d totally be THOSE people. But no kitten hats! They had different types of bears, a shark, an alligator, I think, but no felines! I should protest. [BTW, confidentially, so no one better read this, and of course now they will: I added a provision where the invisibility pill needs an antidote within 10 days or it becomes permanent. Not bad, eh? Raising the old stakes!]

  3. That could be a must-have when you have kids.

    On a different note: You started your post with “Hubs and I got separated…” That instant before I read the rest of the sentence, my heart stopped, my throat tightened, and I thought the world had ended. You are the last person –but wait! I’m jumping to conclusions. Read the rest of the sentence!


    • OMG, I never thought of that! I can totally see how that could happen as you’re reading. Sorry for the near heart-attack! Yea, if my hubs and I got separated, I’d need to be fired. From what, exactly, I’m not sure, but doubtlessly my book sales would plummet! Haha. Thanks for reading, Jacqui. 🙂

  4. LoL … I had the same, well almost the same, situation at Wal-Mart with my four year old! I was looking at something and she found the box of giant head masks they have this year, these things are huge! I turned around to see a giant kitty head on top of a little stick figure body! LMAO it was the best Mommy Moment in Wal-Mart ever!
