(THIS MORNING, AT HOME)
Debbie: Dan, I’m washing a load of whites with bleach.
Debbie: Do you have anything you want to toss in?
(Dan tosses in a white t-shirt.)
Dan: I thought you said you were washing whites.
Debbie: I am.
Dan: Whites with bleach.
Debbie: I am.
Dan: Then why is a brown towel in the washer?
Debbie: The bleach won’t hurt it.
Dan: But why is a brown towel in the washer with the whites?
Debbie: Because it’s dirty??
Dan: Will you please just answer my question?
Debbie: I did answer your question.
Dan: No, you didn’t.
Debbie: The brown towel is dirty. The bleach won’t hurt it.
Dan: But why are you washing it in bleach water with whites?
Debbie: I wash all our towels in bleach water with whites.
Dan: Okay. Thank you. Geesh.
(LAST WEEK, IN GATLINBURG)
Dan: Why didn’t you bring your other shoes to Gatlinburg?
Debbie: What other shoes?
Dan: The ones you bought before we went to Alaska.
Debbie: Oh, I just brought these instead.
Dan: I know. Why?
Debbie: Because the ones I bought to wear in Alaska are clunky.
Dan: You bought them to wear in Alaska if we hiked.
Debbie: I know.
Dan: Didn’t you think we might hike in Gatlinburg?
Debbie: Not on icy tundra.
Dan: They’re good hiking shoes for anywhere.
Debbie: Maybe so, but they’re still clunky.
Dan: They’re waterproof and have gripping soles.
Debbie: That’s what I said. They’re clunky.
Dan: Perfect shoes for Gatlinburg.
Debbie: I brought these instead.
THERE. THAT’S THE DEFINITION OF RETIREMENT.

I’m sure those are selected based on my readership.

Funny!! Men never understand women and their shoes.
Among other things! Thanks, Belva.
Debbie, I love this! You guys crack me up. 🙂 (Doesn’t sound so different from the conversations heard at our house either!)
Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. 🙂
This brought a laugh to my day 🙂 Thank you for sharing!! God Bless 🙂
Thank you. Now go sit down and put your feet up for the rest of the day! (If only!)
Oh boy, this sounds very familiar at my house too!
How did we get to this point, Becky? 🙂 Good thing we have grandchildren to compensate for everything else!!
Oh my goodness, this could be one of our conversations, it drives me crazy. And it drives me crazy. I think you have more patience than I do.
Me? Patience? (I may have edited out a few of my comments to Dan.) 🙂
Yep! These are definitely conversations Keith and I have. Love your writings! ❤️
You guys argue even in Florida? Please, get help somewhere!
