Strawberries and Freeways Don't Mix

B and I were driving home after having dinner with my family the other night. Well, I was driving home and B was supposed to be giving me directions. Yes, I have lived in this city all my life and yes I drove TO the restaurant, but clearly he should have been paying closer attention. You see, while I was driving I decided to flap/blow my lips kind of like you do when giving someone a strawberry on their belly, but minus the whole other person and belly part. Then I decided that was funny:

Me: That was funny.
B: What?
Me: When I blow my lips like that I can see them flapping up.
B: That is weird.
Me: And my glasses shake.
B: Which probably makes your vision shake.
Me: It does!

[flapping lips again]

B: WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Me: What do you mean? I am driving.
B: You are getting on the wrong freeway.
Me: Where am I supposed to be?
B: OVER THERE [pointing]
Me: Too late now I guess.
B: Oh great. You are so busy FLAPPING YOUR LIPS we are now going in the completely wrong direction.
Me: You should have told me.
B: I DID tell you.
Me: Um, yeah, after I was already on the wrong freeway.
B: Maybe you would have known if you weren't busy FLAPPING YOUR LIPS! Seriously, WHO DOES THAT??

So we end up going quite a way out of our way to get back home. Half way through I start laughing hysterically remembering B saying "if you weren't so busy flapping your lips" as it was hilarious and meant quite literally in this case.

It then took me a good 10 minutes to stop laughing and explain to B what I found "so damn funny." With tears in my eyes, I tell him. His response?

"REALLY, who DOES that?"

And I started laughing all over again.

That's hilarious. I've been finding lots of things funny lately that the hubby doesn't.

Katelin said...

Blaez said...

LOL I do things that people don't too, and my jokes well..they make people roll their eyes but i find it funny :P

Blaez said...

i can't stop laughing. that is a priceless moment!

Donella - that is because husbands like to pretend things arent funny when they really are.

Katelin - it is actually pathetic the number of times I get lost. I am surely a poster girl for reasons why to get a GPS. Of course, I still don't have one. Congrats on the engagement by the way!!

Blaez - welcome! Thanks for coming over and a big hello to you! Glad I could make you laugh :)

Lolita - people roll their eyes at me a lot too, well mainly B but I suspect he secretly finds me VERY funny!

I didn't get past the first paragraph before I started flapping my lips, much to the amazement of everyone in the cube farm where I spend my days. I'm not sure GPS navigation systems are all that great. On a recent trip home from New Mexico to Nebraska, the evil Garmin genie added three hours and countless miles to the trip. We didn't realize what was happening until we were two miles from home and the evil #%*$! told us to go ten more miles down the road and take a left.

I got so pissed at my roommate once when she wasn't waiting in the designated spot when I went to pick her up from classes one time.

She got in the car and explained she'd run into a friend and was riding his new bike around the parking lot.

Me: Oh, so you were just fartin' around, wasting my time?!?

Her: Hahaha, you said 'fartin' around!'

*~Dani~* said...

Jamie - now I am laughing at you flapping your lips at your desk. It is funny, isnt it? And that adding three hours to your trip ?GPS is evil. Even in my worst lost moments, the most I would detour might be a half hour. I guess I will stick with my own "sense" of direction.

Saratoga - that is hilarious! It would be even funnier if while riding his bike, she really was farting!

Jennifer said...

I tried to flap my lips reading this too!!

Was there any drinking involved at this dinner? That would explain ALOT.

*~Dani~* said...

Jenny - see? Everyone must try it. Nope. Actually no drinking at dinner. I am just naturally absurd. It is a gift.
