There is NO WAY!

Brady and I have been joking back and forth about something we saw on tv that relates to us... It all started when we were watching CMT's Blue Collar Comedy Reunion shortly before spring break. I never stay up late to watch television (I just cannot go without my beauty rest, people!), but I love the Blue Collar Comedians so much I made an exception. Larry the Cable Guy is the one who started Brady and I on our little sideshow.

He was talking about some of the things his "girlfriend" has asked him to do. Like go into a Victoria's Secret store, which he said there was no way in hell he would ever be caught dead in. So he's in there, shopping around, and his girlfrend wants him to try on a pair of sexy underwear, which he absolutley refuses to do. While he's in there trying them on, she decides he needs to "shave" his "area," which he said would happen over his dead body... So he's in the bathroom with the razor, shaving said area - you see where we're going? And so Brady and were laughing hysterically, because that is US!

For example, a couple of weeks ago, we had a stray dog show up (I'll write about that in one of my next posts). It was an adorable little chihuahua, and Little Miss Mother Hen Brailey Shaye Murray had him in the house before I knew it. So we had to pick Brady up from Dari Mart, and on the way home in the car, as we're telling him about this dog, he says, "That dog had better not be in the house! We do not need another dog." The kids and I just kind of looked at him. So fast forward to the evening, after he's spent some time with the dog, and we're trying to determine how to find his owner, and Brady says, "I wouldn't even try to find the owner - I think he has a good home right here." Ha!

I saw an interview with Pat Monahan (you know, the hottie from Train that I love?) the other day on YouTube and I think this issue must be a common denominator among a lot of couples. He said when he met his current wife, he told her there were three things she needed to know about him: 1) he would never live in Seattle, 2) he would never get married again and 3) he did not want to have any more children. He then went on to say he is married to her, living in Seattle and for all he knew she had a bun in the oven as he spoke! (I think he should write a song about this... He's talented enough he could pull it off.)

So now Brady and I make our own scenarios up. He'll say "no" just to be able to say "yes." We were joking about my parents moving on our drive home from Sisters the other day. Brady said "I told my wife there is no way in hell I was going to help her parents move back to Burns. Twenty loads later, I'm driving the Uhaul back to Eugene..." See? We're real standups, now!

Even if no one else thinks we're funny, we get a kick out of ourselves, which is always a good thing. Oh, and in case you didn't notice, the other good thing is that it is always the man who does the bending. I'm really glad Brady is learning the importance of being flexible, even if it is a bit of a joke. After all, what is life if you can't laugh at it?
