Bzzzt. Thanks for playing!

As I headed off to my annual gyn appointment the other day, my darling husband looked me straight in the eye and said, in all seriousness, I shit you not:

Have fun, babe.

Fun…?  Have FUN???  Did you just tell me to have fun?????…?

Well, um, yeah, I guess I did.  I don’t know – What was I supposed to say?

I don’t know, but of all the options in the pool, have fun couldn’t possibly have been the best one!

    Yeah, my husband pulled that one on me too. I remember just looking at him completely stunned, kind of like a deer contemplating headlights. Men.

  4. “Have fun” is one of my generic greetings. It has slipped out at a few inopportune times. At least this one was between husband and wife. I have had a “have fun” slip out when someone was headed to a funeral. That was very NOT COOL on my part and impossibe to explain.

    Yea, mine is “stay outta trouble” and the times I have said it automatically, in fact, unable to KEEP from saying it…..when it was totally inappropriate scares me. Like the guy who just got out of prison…..or the woman waiting to go to court over some altercation. I gotta find a new one…..’have fun’ sounds as good as any.

    Oh, I also told an elderly man “you’re kidding” once, when he called to tell me to cancel his wife’ order, that she had died. He replied to my comment, “no hun, I wouldn’t kid about that.” God I wanted to crawl into a hole!

    Oh, found your post from your husband’s, and his from pamajama’s. And I found her’s from Allison’s. And I can’t tell how I found That’s What She Blogged……(Big Smile)….give myself away! Great posts, by the way!
