If I knew, I'd tell ya!


"Get this!" I say from the passenger seat as we're driving down the highway. I often read aloud something mind boggling, eye-popping, spell binding, unbelievable from my Face Book feed.
He raises his index finger to his right ear and tunes his hearing aid higher so he doesn't miss a word.
When I pause, he takes his eye off the road for a split second, glances at me and says, "Whose that from? Who sent that to us?"
Who-Who-Who? Us-Us-Us? Is he serious? I've told him a million times, "I don't know."
He thinks I'm messing with him, withholding pertinent information. I tell him "It's just a friend."
"How could it be a friend if you don't know them?"
Yesterday when he asked, instead of starting the ball rolling, I read the "friend's" name.
"Who's that?" he asks.
"I. Don't. Know," I say.
"Well, they sent it to US. How do we know them?"
I say through clenched teeth. "We DON'T know them. It's a friend of a friend."
"Then why are they sending it to US?"
"It's on the WWW," I say.
Before I can explain, he says, "When did you get into wrestling?"
I'm going to put him in a headlock!

I think when you're talking about an opponent with as hard of a head as he has, you will need a more forceful wrestling move than a headlock...

How about a metal folding chair to the head? That MIGHT make an impression on that cement-like Irish skull.

(Wait. He had to tune his hearing aid so he would be sure to hear you? Does that mean he sometimes has it lower to ensure he does NOT hear you?)

I too read Facebook gossip out loud. My husband just shrugs. Men just don't get it or us!

Chuckles! I mean, this is soooo true.
More often than not, DH will just nod his head at my 'splanations. God help him if something were to happen to me and he had to actually identify any of my on-line friends! LOL.

It is interesting how FB has changed the definition of "friend," isn't it? You and your hubby sound like me and mine. My guy does a lot of nodding. I've finally smartened up to know that is the equivalent of "Yes, dear." :)

My hubby just doesn't get the whole Facebook concept.
