Over the holiday I realised many times that my lovely husband wasn’t really listening to me when I was telling him something fascinating and important (honestly they were!)
I could tell by the glazed expression and the zombie-eyed stare that he gave me as he feigned alertness and interest.
When questioned he came up with the following excuses. They all started the same way;
Sorry but ...
I had water in my ear.
(He was nowhere near water at this time!)
A lady waved and distracted me.
(She was actually waving at a waiter!)
The smell of the bug spray made me sniff.
( Considering I used the same spray and I didn't sniff.
Ladies you catch my drift!)
The twins walked by.
(Before all you men out there leap to his defence- they were male twins,
not busty blondes in bikinis; who actually turned out not to be twins at all
or even related in any way!)
I'm just taking in the ambience.
I was distracted by your beauty!
(Cottoned on to my displeasure and trying to soft soap me!)
And my particular favourite;
A fly flew by!
You must admit even the most banal of reasons can be quite creative!
Thought for the day; Happiness is a moment alone! (LOL)
