Miscommunication Leads to Complications.

It's interesting how sometimes you can be having a conversation, and unbeknownst to you, the other person is having a sidebar conversation in their head (I am the QUEEN of sidebar conversations and non-sequiturs, don't even front). Last night Scott and I were discussing his general discontent with his current employment situation. I was trying to point out that at one point he was actually really happy there and I said "It was good for a while". I should point out, that right before that, I had asked Scott to come hang out with me (if you know what I mean and I think you do) and he had responded that he couldn't as he had work to do. So, when I said "It was good for a while" I guess he was feeling bad about telling me no, so he got all upset and sad looking. And I'm looking at him like, dude, what is the big deal? And he is all stumbling and looking SO SAD and I kind of realized, maybe he took this the wrong way...so I clarified "I mean, your job, your job was good for a while". And we both started laughing, though I think he looked pretty sad and he said "I thought you meant our marriage was good for a while". HAHAHAHAHA. Like him being bummed out about work would affect our marriage. Says he to the woman who got laid off 2 weeks after our honeymoon and spent the next 3 months in what my best friend Jennifer refers to as "the boozey period". We have been through so much, a job will never phase me, like it or not.


  1. I don't remember saying that, but it's funny so I'll gladly take credit!!!

    And on the subject of mis-communications I once, no joke, had a conversation with a (now ex) boyfriend and I was talking about hot dogs and he thought I was talking about threesomes!!


  2. awww. poor scotta. that was a cute story.


  3. nice reference to lauryn hill... that was a funny story too.

    things can only get better, and y'all are really talented people and stuff.. so no worries.

  4. soli - yes.

    jennifer - you totally said that, and you said it was okay.

    big n - you ain't never lied

    marlo girl - it is cute...you should have seen his face!

    starfoxx - glad someone caught that :-) We're good - life is like a bowl of cherries.

  5. life is like a bowl of cherries?

    You mean like life is sweet and stuff until you choke on a pit, since you were sucking dem bad boys down like your ass was at the 'Last Supper'? You mean like that?

  6. No, I was referring to the song "Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries":

    Life is just a bowl of cherries
    Don't take it serious,
    Life's too mysterious
    You work,
    You save,
    You worry so
    But you can't take your dough
    When you go, go, go

    So keep repeating "It's the berries."
    The strongest oak must fall
    The sweet things in life
    To you were just loaned
    So how can you lose
    What you've never owned

    Life is just a bowl of cherries
    So live and laugh, aha!
    Laugh and love
    Live and laugh,
    Laugh and love,
    Live and laugh at it all!
