LOL...hubby threw me for a loop tonight! I told him I was going to Wal-Mart to pick up a couple things and asked him if he needed anything. He said, yeah, get me a box of condoms. I just looked at him, speechless. We haven't used condoms in years. I can't get pregnant and he can't make me pregnant. I waited for him to explain. He just smiled and stubbornly remained silent until I finally asked him what size he wanted. "Large," he replied. Then I knew something was up:)

What do you need condoms for? I need them for the sprinkler heads. Then he explained that a couple of the heads needed repair and he wanted to slip the condoms over the tops to keep the dirt out. He said when he was in the service he slipped them down over his rifle to keep the rain out.

What a smart man I'm married to!

I don't think I have ever heard of that use before, but it makes sense. Did the clerk wink at you when you bought the large size? LOL

Hi Deb!!! Been off the boards for a week or so. Alivia is precious!!!!!! What a cutie!!

That's too funny, Debbie. Bet you wanted to slap him!

Debbie Wallace said...

I don't know Cheri, I could barely look him in the eye. All I kept thinking was that HE was thinking, "Hum, someone is going to get lucky tonight!" LOL

Debbie Wallace said...

Hi Becky! I've missed you:) I hope all is well. Thanks for the compliment on Alivia. I've been told she looks like me...only a little darker. Ha! Ha!

You're right about guys being guys. I guess the condom companies don't care what they're being used for as long as someone is buying them for something! LOL

Debbie Wallace said...

Only for making me pick them up for him, Luann. I've NEVER bought condoms before! I don't know why but I felt like everyone in the store was looking at me:)

Hi Debbie, omg you had me for a second there phew. Different never heard of using condoms for sprinkler heads will have to keep this in mind LoL. Very smart man you have married :)


Have a wonderful & safe weekend.

Debbie Wallace said...

LOL...he's special, Linda! The things he comes up with:)

Janet H said...

Too funny. And, when you buy condoms, it's always some young girl or guy at the register. They get all embarrassed and rush to get it in the bag.

Debbie Wallace said...

Hey Janet, in this case I was the one rushing to get it into the bag! LOL

Tigger said...

That's funny. Sounded like at first he wanted you to think something else.

Hey Debbie,
That's awesome, thank you! I've missed you too!!! We have some amazing conversations!! Things are crazy here, Dad is in the hospital again. He had his first chemo and went into congestive heart failure again. Not sure what they'll do with that whole deal. But he should get out by the end of the week. Was getting ready for the new job, getting office clothes again and such. Been working on a construction site for 2 years, ony own jeans now. :( And we were in the process of gettin new computers too. So it's been really hectic! Should start to slow down again once I'm not in my first week at the job and Dad gets sprung :)
Talk to you soon!!!!
So glad to be back!!!

Debbie Wallace said...

Hey stranger, welcome back! I figured you've been busy but had no idea how much. When it rains it pours!

Congestive heart failure, I've been through that scary situation with my hubby more times than I care to remember! I'll pray for your dad to make a speedy recovery.

Chemo, been through that as well. I'm sorry to hear your dad has cancer. There's so much the doctors can do today, keep positive thoughts, okay?
