Funny Moments with my Wife 2

So, this episode happened a while ago when Jenny and I were still in school and not off enjoying our summer break. But, it is hilarious, and I need to write it down somewhere so that I won't forget it, and so others can enjoy it.

Scene set up: It's late at night (around 11:00pm) and night has fallen. Jenny and I look at each other tiredly and collectively decide it is time for bed. As we are getting ready for a wonderful night of sleep, horror strikes... I realize that I have an online quiz due before midnight, and I haven't taken it yet. Jenny is so tired that she talks me into taking my laptop to the bed with me so that she can sleep by my side while I work on the quiz. We retire to the bedroom where Jenny quickly slips under the covers and falls asleep. I get comfy, open my laptop, wait for it to load, wait for the internet connection, and then log into the website where I have to take the quiz.

I didn't study much for the quiz, but I was able to make some educated guesses on all of the questions, with enough confidence that most of my answers were right. However, there was one question that I really had no idea on. I was able to eliminate two of the answers, and I was left with either B or C as the correct one. Not knowing which answer was correct, and looking to make a wild guess, I asked my wife for advice (not realizing that she was dead asleep next to me).

"Jenny, B or C?"
Jenny looked up bleary eyed at me. "Huh?"
"B or C?"
"B or C? Pick a letter."
At this, Jenny laid her head back down on her pillows and closed her eyes again. I giggled for a while about her answer, and then tried to ask her again.
"Jenny." She once again looked at me with squinted, tired eyes.
"Not L. I need you to pick either B or C for my quiz. So pick a letter."
After this answer she laid down again, and I just started cracking up. As I was laughing, Jenny gets up, still looking really tired, and stares at me disdainfully.
"Why are you laughing at me??"
While giggling, I spluttered out, "Because I told you to pick a letter and you told me 'seven.'"
"Never mind, just go back to sleep. I love you." With that I kissed her goodnight.
She smiled dreamily, laid back down, and drifted right back into dreamland.

With that, I made a guess, I can't even remember which letter I picked, because I was still giggling too hard. The really interesting part about this story was when I asked her if she remembered the episode. She said all she could remember was feeling confused that night, then a little angry for some reason, and then a sense of pleasure. That was it.

Luckily, Jenny just laughs about it along with me now. I love her so much!

Funny Moments with my Wife

So, normally I try to be really considerate as a husband. I hold doors open for my wife. I tell her I love you as much as I possibly can. I get her car door for her. I try and honestly make my wife feel that she means the world to me, because she really does.

However, every once and a while I slip up and do something a little dumb, even when I don't mean to.

Jenny and I love to share things. We share stories. We share time with each other. We share books together. And we especially love to share food. One of our most favorite things to do is to go to restaurants, order two different things, and then split them so that we each get to try two different dishes. It's a tradition that started way back when we first met. We just love to share with each other.

Friday's when I work on BYU campus with my boss Karla, she buys brownies for us after we go down and get the money out of all the video game machines in the Games Center. I wanted to share the brownies we got today with my wife, so I loaded mine on a napkin and clocked out from work. I went and found my lovely wife sitting on a couch drawing a really cool picture of an Adobe/Arabian Palace thing in the desert, and showed her the treats I had brought to share with her. I sat down next to her on the couch she was on, and proceeded to bite into the 7-layer brownie bar. After I ate half of it, I gave the rest to my wife who thoroughly enjoyed it. I then began to eat some of the Mint Brownie (the brownies that BYU are famous for), and got thinking about life in general. "I wonder where I'll get a job...I wonder if I will end up teaching at a university..."

It was at that moment that I heard a pleading "Um...???" from my wife. I looked at her, and she looked back at me imploringly with big puppy-dog eyes. I tried to figure out what it was she wanted, and then looked down at the brownie I had been munching on. All I had left was a small bite of the brownie that I was actually just about to pop in my mouth. I had managed to eat almost the whole brownie without even thinking about it. Not meaning to at all, because I really did want to split it with her and share.

I gave my wife the bite and apologized. She said that she really only wanted a bite, and that she loves me. I really do have an amazing wife, and I am so glad she teaches me to laugh at mistakes.
