Pillow Talk

Since being married, we have become accustomed to situations such as these. At one time, we would turn to friends and family to settle our “quarrels.” We began to see the stress this caused others and decided we should find another outlet to settle our “situations.” Should you visit our home, it would not be surprising to see a dictionary out on the table…or even witness one of these occurrences.

See, as surprising as it may seem, Nate and I have disagreements. Usually these disagreements pertain to some factual information such as the pronunciation of words and often the mere existence of words. This is seventy-five percent of the reason I own a smart phone…to prove myself right. For example, relaxment is not a word. And fun, funny, funnier, and funniest…are not derived words of the same base. We did, however, have to pull over on the road because when he finally realized what he was doing we couldn’t stop laughing.

So, either way, that is a little background to give you a view of how this following incident took place…

While watching AFVs, as we do do nightly, Nate looks at me confused when a lady couldn’t break an egg with her gluteus maximus. (Why she was trying to do this is beyond me.)

He says: “You wouldn’t think it would be hard.”

Me: “Well, you can’t break an egg with the palm of your hand, so it may be hard.”

(And this is my favorite part, that look like I’m the most insane person in the world.)

Nate: “You’re full of it! I know I can break an egg with the palm of my hand.”

Me: “Really. Well, let’s go try. There is scientific proof that you cannot do it.”

After a little wager and a little more "discussion", we made our way to the kitchen. Note the move of the fingers at the end of the video. He did not just defy scientific fact.

I love it when he says, “Well, I’ll be.”

You guys are two much! That was funny. Yes, I watched it twice and laughed.

I would love to have heard the heated debate that ensued after the camera was turned off. :-P He definitely dug his fingertips in the side of that egg to crack it. He was NOT going to NOT break that egg, was he? hee hee

You guys are weird... and I love it. ;)

I think the next video should be of you trying it with your gluteus maximus. :)

Too funny

You two are just darling! The East Texas accents (I"m guessing here) are just as darling.

I'm so relieved to see the video wasn't a gluteus maximus! ;-)

How are you feeling? The countdown is on for Anna's arrival, right?

Too funny! At least your arguments are productive. LOL! Or, in this case, I suppose it was destructive...the poor egg. ;-)

My Yankee co-workers were making fun of the traditional Southern phrase, "There you have it..." just last week.

Well...there you have it.
