    A funny

    Milk and eggs


    This is a story which is perfectly logical to all males:


    A wife asks her husband,
    "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk,
    and if they have eggs, get 6."


    A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.
    The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"


    He replied, "They had eggs."



    (I'm sure you're going back to read it again!)
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Ain't it the truth. no logic to women when you ask for a carton of milk and 6 eggs. she didn't specify 6 eggs. how's your weather down there? or up here? Minot area was great today. some people seemed to think they should drive a vehicle out on the ice to fish and fell through around the Tolley area where they were told was open water yesterday and to stay off the ice. 2 dead and 2 rescued. no names yet. Not far from me.

    I asked my husband what he would get if given those directions. He said he'd bring back half a gallon of milk, and 6 dozen eggs, so I guess it is all about perspective. I probably would have questioned the 6 eggs. Do you only want half a dozen??? I have learned through the years I have to be specific when I send him and if it is more than 1 item, I send a list.

    My Husband does all the shopping but I have to be specific with brands sizes and how many. He is a keeper! I had him start doing it when he started caring for his elderly mother and was going there to do her shopping anyway.

    My DH goes shopping and it is always a surprise with what he brings. If I send him I always designate name brands because he has no clue about which off brands to buy and will find the cheapest and smallest of whatever I ask for (he thinks I am real thrifty and I would buy that brand and size LOL) He is a keeper and he does try and never complains about going shopping even though he hates it.

    I can believe this for when TV dinners were all the rage I left one for my husband to fix for his dinner. He was on swing shift. I came home to a house filled with smoke. He cooked it in the regular over (no microwaves in those days) BOX and all. Seemed logical to him. Note: the directions now read Remove from box so maybe he wasn't the only one.

    My husband goes shopping, will bring back everything on the list...that's not the problem. It's all the things NOT ON THE LIST.

    It seems that every time I send my better half to the store, his grocery list doubles. Its a running joke with my youngest daughter of how many items this time will he be bringing home.
