oh boo moment #2

you cannot make this stuff up and my imagination isn't that large so it's no wonder these events actually take place in MY world. as my schweetie says, "it's your world, babe - the rest of us are just passing through it!"

before i left work today, i put a post-it-love-note "who loves you?" on some cash on my husband's desk. he likes that...the cash part.

i called the office to ask him to pick up pizza on his way home and he said, "okay." what else could he say? it was ME asking, not sandra bullock!

as he handed the pizza guy the folded money, he looked at my husband strangely so my husband looked back puzzled. it was probably like a hillbilly standoff. i guess after a moment of silence the kid pulled the pink post-it-note off the money and handed it back to my husband. OH BOO!

my husband quickly said (and i paraphrase), "oh, that wasn't from me to you! to which the pizza guy responded, "oh, good."

now my husband's all ROFLHAO, thinking the pizza guy probably thinks he's been stalking him! we now need to find a new pizza place...

"it's your world, babe - the rest of us are just passing through it!"

I thought I was the only one who said this to their wife.

nanc said...

honey, is that you?

Great oh-boo stories, Nanc!

Let's see....Do I have one? Maybe.

The day of my wedding, those many years ago, I was frustrated with all the last-minute preparations; all morning long, I kept referring to my own wedding as follows: "I wish this funeral were over."

I must have said the same sentence several times because my exasperated mother finally said, "Quit referring to your wedding as a funeral!"

My father sat quietly in his chair; he puffed on his piped and grinned but never said a word.

At the reception, Dad said, "Guess you're glad the FUNERAL is over now."

nanc said...

look at it this way, aow - after the funeral comes eternal life!

nanc said...

i'm going through my "oh boo" moments to find just the right one.

My wedding day.

On the 29th of this month, 33 years ago.

I was 23 years old and still in the active reserve, My then future wife, Jackie, wanted to push up the date of our marriage because she just couldn't live without me for two weeks, (it ended up that I didn't have to go). Her mother and father raised bloody hell and were against the marriage anyway.

My wife was afraid that her father was going to stand up at the point where the minister say, "If anyone knows of a reason why..." She was a total nervous wreck.

Her mother, (she of double wide butt and many pills), gave her a "nerve pill". Then another, and another.

They didn't phase her during the wedding or the reception but toward the end of the reception she was acting giddy and exhausted.

We left the reception for our glorious one night and one day honeymoon at palatal Gabes Motor Inn in the bustling metropolis of Owensboro Kentucky with a stop on the way for supper at the half star restaurant, Toppers Fine Foods, (fiddlers a house specialty, my wife loves them). The pills started kicking in big time when the fiddlers arrived and she passed out face first in her plate of fish, literally!

The waitress freaked out and the manager came running out. I asked them to help me get her to the car, I didn't bother to ask for a doggie bag. (Cold Fiddlers, YUCK).

I rousted her enough to get her in the car, drive 6 miles and get her to the 4th floor room where I had to undress her and put her to bed.

They did have air conditioning and cable TV.

MissingLink said...

Nanc,
Can you reveal to your friends the exact words of the message?
Hmm... perhaps it's too much to ask.

Elmer's Brother said...

sir warren watching tv on my honeymoon never crossed MY mind. Was there a game on?

nanc said...

warren - not THE gabe's motor inn?

nanc said...

linkster - it was "who loves you?"

can you imagine instead of getting a hold up note, getting something like that from another man? a very strange man? okay, well, he's not that strange.

Warren,
our glorious one night and one day honeymoon at palatal Gabes Motor Inn

One night and one day? Same here--almost, but the palace was Howard Johnsons in bustling Warrenton, Virginia. The day after our wedding was Father's Day, and my husband's father had to be taken to the airport early in the morning. Guess who was required for that little task? So I guess we had a one-night honeymoon, without that one day. Both of us back to work on Monday.

But we weren't upset because we had a second honeymoon planned for August--a full three days in Richmond, Virginia. What a glorious time we had! On the way back, however, the VW broke down on the interstate; my father had to come and tow us home. Complete engine rebuild was required due to a thrown rod; and my husband and my father, both working full time (husband in the Army), accomplished the task over a period of two weeks in my father's garage. The VW was on the road a mere three days, then stolen right in front of our house--stolen, the engine yanked, burned, and left in a pit. The police report stated, "Vehicle recovered, case closed." We had no theft insurance, so the VW was a total loss. For weeks, we sat up all night long and kept our eyes peeled for car thieves. They never came back.

Ah, the resilience of newlyweds!

Oh Warren, what a wake up call to real life! At my wedding my Dad, retired AF as he was, yelled at me for starting off on the "wrong" foot to go down the aisle! He marched me down like he was going before the firing squad, the picture of his face was priceless! He was so grim I thought his face would fall off! A daughter whose an only child has these little obstacles to marital bliss.
Good morning and may G*D bless us with laughter at all the ooops of life!

nanc said...

okay - here's one before i go:

a boyfriend and i went to visit my parents about 25 or so years ago and my mother really didn't like him after the hospital bed incident.

as we sat down to visit in the livingroom - he crossed his legs and what should be hanging out the bottom of his pantleg? a silky pair of MY underwear - forgot the fabric softener sheets!

OH BOOOOO!

the merry widow said...

Nanc- Bwahahahaha! A Polaroid moment if there ever was one!

tmw

Warren said...

EB, there sure wasn't any game going on in the "honeymoon suite"!

I think on one of the three cable stations, "night of the living dead", was playing but it could have been a closed circuit broadcast of our room.

LOL!

These horror stories make you wonder why women fantisicize about their weddings before-hand. :^)

Work day for me. gotta gonow!

Blessings!

PS TMW, they don't call it the "Wedding March" for nothing!

Always remember to start with the left foot.

NeeSmart said...

Thats a funny....

FLORIAN said...

You're lucky there Nanc. LOL. Who may have guessed that the pizza kid may have been a raving homo himself and would've turned blush at the note your hubby gave him? Thankfully that wasn't the case. Guess in Arkansas there isn't much of that going on. Here in Atlanta--gay capital of the east--that's another thing. Last time I went to the mall shopping some queer on the counter said he wanted to know where I got my shorts at and that he "liked" them. I gave the fairy a dirty look and left immediately.

Brooke said...

I stuttered during my vows... but other than that, everything went OK!

Hilarious story, Nanc!

beakerkin said...

That was a classic.

Always On Watch said...

Nanc,
That undies story is hilarious. Now, had that happened in front of my father, the boyfriend would've had to find out if he could outrun a bullet. Or maybe Dad would just have said, "Got a wedding date set yet?" Hehehe. Not really, but those were my first thoughts.

MissingLink said...

I thought there was something more in this message.
;-)

Elmer's Brother said...

The pizza boy is probably scarred for life...I recommend Chinese.

Always On Watch said...

Brooke said, I stuttered during my vows... but other than that, everything went OK!

I lost one of my contact lenses while we were cleaning out the car as we were getting ready to leave the church. Oh, well. One doesn't need contact lenses on a honeymoon anyway.

Elmer's Brother said...

ML there is - don't write on your money and don't marry someone who has been drugged just before the ceremony. Some people...

Always On Watch said...

Nanc,
look at it this way, aow - after the funeral comes eternal life!

Good point!

nanc said...

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!

Warren- That's what my Dad was yelling at me! Eclectic that I am I start on my right!
Hope you had a Happy Father's Day!
AoW- Glad you weren't forced to drive!
Nanc- Oh the trials on the road to true love, the rocks and potholes are tough to navigate! The underwear gets in the way.
EB- My late never said that to me... I'm crushed, he didn't love me!
Good morning and G*D bless all!

OKay, this is pretty gross though. When I was in grade 2 we had to have some shots at school. When we got back to the class room I started getting shockey and dizzey, so I got up and left the room,,, on my way to the washroom I felt like I was going to get sick, which I did in the WATER FOUNTAIN! I still wonder why on earth I would choose to use the water fountain for that... strange. I suppose they see crazy stuff like that all the time in elementary schools.

Boys used to stick their tongues on frozen metal fence posts in the winter too.. It would rip the skin right off. Then they'd chase the little girls with blood streaming down their chins.

Always On Watch said...

TMW,
I had my eyeglasses as backup. Now that I've given up contacts, I don't have to worry about losing the lenses any more.

the merry widow said...

AoW- Never could wear contacts, you should see me with an eyelash in my eye! I go positively berserkerganger!

Brooke said...

Oh, Eyes! EW!

eyesallaround said...

Brooke, I know... my only defense is my age. I think I was only 7 or 8... can you imagine though? YUK!

nanc said...

our son just asked his father where to find the ad in the paper for used pool tables, to which my husband replied, "look in the divorce ads!"

nanc said...

i cannot imagine either, eyes - things that make you go "blechhhh"!!!

Mad Zionist said...

Nanc, did you ban Freedomnow? I see his comment was deleted by administrator.

nanc said...

fern asked that i delete his comment as there was a glitch in the link he posted - i would never do that to fern without being asked. i've found nothing in his comments ever that i would oppose but our differenting ideals.

it was his idea, madze, not mine. and since we're HAVING to moderate, there was no other choice.

nanc said...

oops - opposing ideals, not differenting (my Lord that's not even a word)! yikes! and i don't mind opposing ideals as long as they make somewhat sense to the poster and myself - warren may have different rules.

Mad Zionist said...

I thought as much, but with the frenzy of trolls getting wiped out I thought he may have been collateral damage.

Elmer's Brother said...

I believe "differing" is the word you are looking for.

the merry widow said...

Nanc- The only way you can look like a fool in the longrange is if you do it yourself. Any other attempts will only work for jobro's fellow travelers! Oh boo! moments are part and parcel of the human condition! It's just that some are sooooo good at it!
Good morning and G*D bless all here!

Freedomnow said...

MZ dont listen to Nanc, she really did ban me.

If you get this message please get it to the American embassy in Arkansas.

nanc said...

don't make me do it fern!

Freedomnow said...

Nanc said, "don't make me do it fern!"

See I told you...it's nothing but the man trying to keep me down.

ummm...I mean the woMan trying to keep me down. I love the thigh-high boots and rubber outfit, though.

nanc said...

that's latex!
