What Life is Like When Married to a Smartallic

My sister-in-law called me today on my cell phone. I know that seems like a normal thing, but it is what this little post is based on.

Ok, let me set the stage for you.

We were in the living room. I was talking on my cell phone and Eric was sitting on the couch holding the baby that I watch. She was getting fussy, so I got up to make her a bottle. As I did, I started patting my pockets with my phone-free hand and then I went over and looked in the chair, even down the sides, and patted my pockets again.

You know where this is going yet?

I looked over at Eric and mouthed to him, "Where's my cell phone, I can't find it?"

Oh yes I did.

He looked at me with this look of, "seriously?"

I realized what I had said right after I said it. I was TALKING on my cell phone!

So anyway, I made the baby's bottle and came back in and sat down in the chair again. I motioned for Eric to bring me the baby so I could feed her.

Here is what he did:

Stood up, with the baby in his arms, turned a circle and said, "Hey, where's the baby? Where did she go?" ~~ then he laughed.

And that's what it's like being married to a smartallic.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, HO, ho, ho, he, HEE, he, heeee...


A couple of years ago, when we were renovating our house, my husband did something similar. It was late, and we were installing wainscoting in our bedroom. He looked up at me, with his pencil clutched between his teeth, and asked..."Where is my pencil?" I said, "What?!" And again he said, "Where is my pencil?", as he talked AROUND the pencil. I just died laughing. And he STILL didn't get it! I finally pointed it out, and we both got a good laugh. And then a few minutes later he shot himself in the leg with a nail gun. So, lesson learned, don't renovate your house after midnight!

Oh boy! I thought for a minute he was going to hand you the phone instead of the bottle. My husband is a lot like this. I love it!
