Mamma Loves Memes

Mama Loves tagged me for the 6 Weird Things About Me meme. I've actually done one just like this before so I decided to mix it up and ask husband if he could tell me 6 odd things that I do.

Me: Can you tell me 6 od
d or weird things that I do?
Husband: Why?

Me: It's for my blog, the people demand to know.

Husband: (Sigh) Only 6?


6 Weird Things My Husband Notices About Me

1.) When I swallow a pill I look like a TV evangelist ready to break into testimony. The pill always gets stuck halfway down my throat and I have to fight not to gag it up. So I raise my hands up in the air, squeeze my eyes shut, bend down, swallow and subsequently scream "Aaah, I did it!". It usually works.

2.) The fact that EVERY time Tom Cruise is shown on TV I announce that I think he's gay. Every time. Tonight husband screeched, "Oh my God I get it! Katie Holmes is a beard, alright already!"


3.) That every so often during the evening time I will pull the elastic waist of my pajama pants outward and then snap them. Since I wear my pj pants high up under my jugs he thinks this is hilarious and pretends it gets him all hot.

4.) That I read books obsessively. I have a wicker laundry basket filled with library books at my bedside. If it starts to dwindle I get panicky. Husband was sent out to pick up a batch of recently ordered library books over the weekend even though it was 2 degrees outside.

5.) That I insist on changing the sheets "all the time". Frankly, I don't think once a week is "all the time" but whatever.

6.) That I won't let him wear any article of clothing that has been worn throughout the day in bed. Of course not! If you really think about what you sit on and lean against in the course of the day you would do the same. Especially, if like husband you take Chicago public transportation. Bed should be a fluffy clean cloud where you dream of unicorns and rainbows. I've been known to be dead drunk and weaving and still attempt to wash my face and put on my pajamas.

Bonus: Cause he just couldn't stop at 6. Husband says that when he gets home from work the first thing I do after kissing him hello is to smell him. This is true. He says I then start guessing where he has been that day. "Did you go that Italian place for lunch?" and remind him that he can't wear those clothes in bed tonight. That's it. I tag anyone that ever felt irrationally left out cause they didn't get tagged for a meme.

I like the alternative take on the whole thing. Sorry I didn't know you had recently completed the same meme.

Thanks for humoring me and playing along!!

Attila The Mom said...

Deanna said...

All this time of reading Ent Lawyer, and I can't watch TV anymore without thinking -"gay, junkie, jerk, gay...

Lotta said...

Mama - My pleasure!

Atilla - I know!

Swamp - Done!

Deanna - He has ruined me as well. Sigh.

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

Great idea...to ask the hubs. My hubs would NOT be able to stop at 6!!!

Maybe I won't ask him.

My 3 y.o. has taken to wearing her PJs to daycare and I try not to put up a fight too often. I won't let her wear those same PJs to bed though, ick. Totally with you there.

No books, no magazines, I start a little panic attack--must.have.something.to.read.all.the.time.

Have you read The Good Fairies of New York by Martin Millar? It is great! I'm doing monthly book reviews at my place now. Children's books too, but they will be reviewed by my 2 year old.

And uh, duh, sleeping on clean sheets with the bed all nice and neatly made is da bomb.

Karly said...

Ooh, I've never done a meme before (yes I'm a big loser) and so I will definitely do this one. How fun!

Angelina said...

Once a week fresh sheets is NOT excessive. If I could afford to buy enough sheets and pay someone else to do all my laundry, I would have clean sheet night every night. And I HATE it when my husband wears the same T-shirt he wore all day to bed. Not becuase of germs, but because of the all day man-smell. Men cannot get away with wearing any one garment for more than twelve hours.

Monkey Butt's Mom said...

I agree with Angelina. I would love a nightly change of sheets. As a matter of fact, if someone could gently remove me from the bed halfway through the night and change the sheets and put me back in the bed without disturbing my precious sleep, I would be one happy chick.

I got tagged with the same meme. If you want to read my rather lack-luster answers, you can do so here.

Lotta said...

Would love to have clean sheets every night as well! Monkeybutt has the best scenario. I guess Jackie O used to have her sheets changed after her afternoon nap every day.

AdventureDad said...

I'm married to a half-crazy Mexican and could probably list 106 weird things about her.

I go forever without changing sheets and wife want to change at least once a week. Drives me crazy.....

Marry me.

Esmerelda said...

Oh, I'll add this to my list of reasons NEVER to have a husband again. There is no one in my house to think I'm odd. I am perfect, in my own, special, delusional way.

mommiebear2 said...

I love this! I am so making hubby do one for me. I am curious to see what he thinks is odd/wierd about me.

Working Gal said...

I found your blog through Oh the Joys!, and really enjoyed this post, and your "All Wet" post. I can relate in ways I don't even want to talk about. I'm am heading over to join the Future MILF's group now!

Lotta said...

Addad - Thanks for coming by to visit! I'm sure those are the same 106 reasons you love her too!

Jenny!! Thanks for coming by even though I left a pitful Nyquil fueled beg for attention in my last comment to you!

Es - There are days when that is my fantasy.

Mommy - Do it and let me know!

Working - Thank you mam! Join up!

Jenny said...

I may have come this morning out of a sense of pity but I came back this afternoon because you are a superstar.

Lotta said...

I belive that's Supah Star. ;)

Jenny said...

I stand corrected.
