Sometimes you just have to enunciate better, and even then, it doesn't help.

 Hubby and I were driving to the store. A tune came on the radio that made me bebop. I looked over at him, touched his hand and said, "Remember when we used to polka, baby?"


His head snapped around. "WHICH one?"


"All of them."


"Impossible. The only two we ever had was Ashley and Kyle. I do remember dropping him on his head, though. Is that what you're talking about?"


He was as confused as I was.


"You never DROPPED him on his head. You placed him in a toy wagon when he was a year old and it tipped backwards when you pulled the handle. It was only a couple inches off the ground. You did NOT drop him on his head."


"Well what are you talking about? Which baby did we poke?"


"POLKA!"


"OH, I thought you said, 'Remember when we poked a baby? ' "


Roll out the barrel...Oom pah-pah, life is a barrel of fun!

You two and your conversations are a riot! You could collect all of these and turn them into a funny book!

Careful. He might put on his dancing shoes next time you want to go to a poker tournament.

Slight failures to communicate certainly do make life interesting!

You two have no need for a television...However, if you DO rely on a TV for entertainment, I guess it has to be on a high volume setting?

That is funny. My husband and I have had a conversation or two like that. :) Sometimes when we talk we're on the same page, and other times we aren't even in the same book. Snowing here too. Stay warm!

We say "what?" a lot at my house!

Very hilarious. I really enjoyed this conversation.

Perhaps your husband was concentrating on driving when you started the conversation. This happens very often in a family. When one member is thinking of something, the other starts out a conversation.
