8 Minute Meal

Why oh Why do men have to have the remote to surf the internet??  Why is it in their blood?  Or does their dad teach them this early on? 

Now here I am writing on my blog and he's surfing.  I hate that he's surfing.  It gets on my nerves that there are so many different things on.  If I start to watch something.. you guessed it.  He changes the channel so I don't even want to look up.

Then it begins tonight.

Ken:  Honey, look 8 Minute Meals.  I can do that.
Me:  Uh huh
Ken:  I mean really I can cook that long
Me:  Uh huh

(When I say Uh huh, I'm usually busy working on something and couldn't care less about this conversation.)

Ken:  Ok I'm going to watch it.
Me:  Sure babe do that

5 mins later...

Ken:  What the heck!!
Me:  Something wrong?
Ken:  I didn't know that they were going to try and sell me a blender.
Me:  What surprises you about that?

Ken:  I can make 8 minute meals.  I thought I would learn a new one.
Me thinking use the crock pot..takes 10 minutes and leave it alone
Ken:  They are trying to sell a machine
Me looking up:  Ken, it says 8 Minute Meal Machine on the list.. what did you think they were going to do?
Ken:  Ok let me find some porn then

Translation:  I'm not an idiot Tami.  No matter how much I acted like it.

God you have to love them.  But sometimes....

And why oh why did he teach my daughter the tricks with the remote??  Now he comes home and she has it somewhere.  She usually hides it.  She doesn't want to miss her shows either.  He always gets upset about it.

Hellloooooo its a remote.

Giving credit:  This conversation did happen but I would never have written it like this if I wasn't reading Lee's The Hot Flash Queen's blog.  Lee, that was so much fun to do it that way.
