Two Rather Juvenile Moments

Tonight was Date Night. (Nope, I didnt’ even take Seth-7mth)

At two different times tonight Mike and I could have passed for twelve year olds.  I held out a shirt at a store for his appraisal. It was yellow and brown with a stripe of turquoise. I said, "Look! It’s like poop and pee, all on the same shirt!" Mike looked at it and said exactly what i was thinking. "With a little toothpaste!"  We dissolved into stupid giggles.

Then, over dessert, we were discussing a possible business venture (because hello? could we have just a few more of THOSE, please…?). Mike took a pen and paper from my purse and drew a cul de sac. Yaknow, something like this:

I looked at his drawing, and said, "That looks SO much like a penis."

"Well. Not MINE."

Men. As if that’s what I meant. Oh please.

"Clearly. Clearly not yours." I took the  pen and drew a much more, ahem, substantial, cul de sac.

He looked at it and grinned and then came more stupid giggles. He’s so easy.

I attribute our juvenile behavior to recent stress. Just this morning I was sure I was going to cancel date night because we’ve been all stressed and snippy and grumpy with each other. Then look! We go out and draw penises and laugh about the unfortunate color scheme of a shirt. Ah, the healing power of dumb humor.

(I asked if he’d mind if i took a photo of our drawings for my blog. He looked horrified – as if I’d asked to photograph his… cul de sac, or something.)

Maybe I should have skipped this one.
I think I’m blushing.

so uh, when I accidentally call Hubsters …parts.. cul de sac … during a , shall we say, inopertune moment, may I blame you?

I find that times of stress and snippiness are the BEST times for date nights! Glad you had a fun time out…and thanks for skipping the photos :-)

I live on a cul-de-sac, I grew up on a cul-de-sac so I have a very vivid image of what they look like! Thanks anyways!!! But hey, glad date night could bring a little humor to two well-deserved parents!

So much to say…that I’m just not going to say (but I tell you, my comments would’ve been HILARIOUS.)

Now I’m so glad I don’t live on a cul-de-sac. If I did, then everytime I went home from now on I’d think of …um…cul-de-sacs.

That was hysterical. If there was one thing I would change about my husband, I would make him more “fun.” It sounds like you had a fun date. We need a night out. Maybe I’ll call a sitter today!

Sounds alot like some of OUR dates! :-) Thirteen years of marriage, and Marcel can still make me laugh more than anyone I know.

Glad you had a great night. You deserve it after what you’ve been through.

Being an unmarried Christian girl, maybe I should’ve skipped this post! LOL! But hey, I won’t buy an unfortunately colored shirt anyway!

I’ll never look at cul-de-sacs the same again.

Silly date nights are the best date nights. Especially in a life filled with stress. You both needed to blow off steam, and were able to do it together, what’s better?

I would have bought the shirt. lol

So what you’re saying is “When it comes to cul-de-sacs, size does matter?”

Glad you had a great night. Hubby and I laugh at stuff no one else would think was funny–it’s great! :-)

AAW. Now I’m really missing my husband…
no not the cul de sac part but the dumb humor part. We have soo much fun being immature! I wish you and I could hang out in person. Thanks for the humor this morning!

So…..From now on will all the guys be comparing the size of their cul de sacs? :-)

And I always have a goofy good time with my hubby. Our shared sense of humor is part of the glue that holds our marriage together. Sometimes, it’s either laugh at something or go all to pieces, and we choose to laugh most times.

Happy for you that you got to laugh over The Unfortunately Colored Shirt, and The Well-Endowed Cul De Sac, LOL. ;-)

I’m still laughing! I love coming to your blog, because you make my day better. Thanks.

Now–are you a Desperate Housewife–or not? Do they live on a cul-de-sac…? Now, that show is beginning to make more sense. Don’t watch it–as you hate mommies with fine hair—I stay away from housewives with perfect bodies! Can’t avoid seeing the commercials for it though–I’m going to look a little closer….a Cul-de-sac! I guess life really is always about sex!

Maybe I should go on more date nights with my hubby! ;-)

I don’t even know if I can comment here. You have no idea the puns and plays on words swirling around in my head right now. I may need to go repent for a while.

You did buy the shirt, right?

Maybe you could at least get us a picture of the shirt. For our laughing pleasure of course. :-)

Wow, Date NIGHT!!! Good for you. I am jealous.
It sounds like it was fun.

… ummm, I do live on (in) a cul-de-sac … at the very center … you have completely changed my ideas about my perfect *little* cul-de-sac …

So funny. Date nights are the best. Sounds like you guys had a great time.

HAHA! I love being silly with my husband!! It is healthy to release all that stress!! Even if it means drawing…*cough* cul de sacs!

That is absolutely hysterical…I thought my hubby and I were the only ones that had a weird sense of humor. And, yes…the best of humorous dates are the ones that we were so stressed out and neither of us were in the mood…those turned out to be the best kind of dates. Maybe you should go back and buy that shirt and wrap it up for Father’s Day? The joke between you two will be priceless.
I am glad you got some time to be away!

I miss being around here for a day or so, and look what happens!! Talk of cul-de-sacs and bodily functions mixed with toothpaste! Like so many others, I have a mind whirling with comebacks that I’ll leave unsaid. Yet, I know my DP and I have had some silly dates just like yours. So fun to be crazy with the one who knows you best!

Oh. My. Word.
I just spent three hours wrestling with Blogger to publish a post entitled, “A Cul-de-Sac No Longer.”
I should have read your post first.

OMG, too funny! I hadn’t even read your post and thought the pic looked like a penis. What does that say about me?!

Ya know…I just visited one of SuperMom’s links the other day. It’s a must see for mom’s to be.

It’s all about these horrible names that people are actually thinking of naming their children. Anyhoo…this post reminded me of one of the names.

They wanted to name their child Toolio. Unfortunately their last name is…you guessed it…De Sac. Toolio De Sac. Poor boy.

I’ve been bloghopping today and found you…I’m glad I stopped by.

I am reading this at work on my lunch break. Big mistake. Any minute someone’s going to run in here to ask what in the world I am gufawing about. Cannot – stop – laughing.

I’m so glad to hear that other adults enjoy stupid humor.
