Ha..yeah. Last time my wife asked that question, I answered her honestly with,
"I was trying to reconcile the idea of M-Theory and the Big Bang. Wondering if the 2 branes that collided, were not applicable to theories of the interaction of double layers, or if it is another attractive force we are not aware of at this time, and...."
To which she stopped me in the middle and said, with her eyes rolling, "...never mind....did you take out the trash like I asked?"
My Answer? Yes Sweetie.
It's our failures in life that make the best stories later on.
I hate to say but that was the funniest thing I had seen all day, and he was pretty pissed at me for laughing, but hey, funny is funny.

This is so very true Smyleegrl.
Years ago my husband and I were staying on some ranch property and needed to repair one of those fencing ladders that allows a person to climb over an electrified fence. Its shaped like an upside down V with plank rungs on both sides. It was made onsite so putting it back together was like some sort of puzzle created by an evil marriage testing genius. In the process I brushed against the fence and wham, the shock was incredible. I warned my hubby that the fence was extra hot and to be careful to which he responded ,"you cant get shocked unless you make contact with two of the wires, and to be fair that is how it's supposed to be. Anyhoo, we went back and forth for awhile and to prove his point he reaches out and grabs ahold of a single wire, and Pow. It was so loud even the bulls looked over as if to say ' she just told you it was hot ". I hate to say but that was the funniest thing I had seen all day, and he was pretty pissed at me for laughing, but hey, funny is funny.
He still tells this story (It's funny now) usually in reference to someone saying females are overly dramatic when it comes to pain. He thought the fence couldn't be hot because I said ouch and went back to work. When it happened to him he screamed like a third grader looking at a spider.edit on 22-5-2013 by pennylemon because: (no reason given)
