    This is why men should never open their mouths: Me: "Honey we should start ballroom dancing so I can get legs like hers" (we're watching Dancing with the Stars). Gary: "Honey you could dance your whole life and never get legs like hers-you know why? Because she has skinny legs". True story, this is what the goofball said. Then couldn't understand why I would want to beat the daylights out of him. He later tried to dig himself out of the hole by saying I have the best legs ever and am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen and that he was only joking. Men these days!

    Men are just a different breed in the species.

    Just remind him that forgiveness for his "faux pas" will only cost him $__.__ (YOU fill in the blank!) for fabric!

    Well, there you go! He deserved it. I'm betting you are probably too young to have watched the Cosby Show regularly. Now that man finally got it about how men just don't get it.
    Get it? :-)

    No, not too young to remember Cosby-I used to watch it all the time when I was growing up :)

    Don't you just love it when they try to climb out of that hole that just keeps getting deeper and deeper. Men will they ever learn? Probably not!!!!!!

    When my first dh dug himself a whole by mentioning my weight he tried to get out by adding, "But you know that the only thing that likes a bone is a dog. I prefer some meat on your bones. Meat, potatoes, gravy, dessert...." I told him he'd better jump off that auger before he hit magma.

    While he is sleeping in the dog house (the dog is inside)
    don't let him take a quilt.
    Men just know how to get in over their heads with only a few words.

    Reminds me of the jokes "And that's when the fight started". I am sure that Ditter can find it someplace and post it for us!

    Maybe he doesn't like skinny legs though? You are the one who is assuming that "skinny legs" has a positive meaning for him.

    Try replacing "skinny" in this sentence with "unattractive" and see how you feel about him then.
