As much as I pick on my dear hubby, and as annoying he can be, he truly has moments where he really is a great guy.
This past weekend he illustrated, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he has the capacity to do truly nice things.
Hold on to your hats…. I’m about to drop a doozy on you!
This weekend hubby went shopping….. I know, shocking!!!! (as you know, hubby HATES shopping)
Not only did he go shopping BUT, he went to Costco on a weekend…. yikes!!!
And… here it comes…… he went shopping to buy toilet paper ……. holy crap (no pun intended)!!!!
But, my dear blog readers it does not end there. No it does not. As if it wasn’t enough that he went out to buy a staple home item, a paper product, a product that he, himself, thinks fairies deliver to our house. I added one additional item to his shopping list. An item that breaks all man code. An item that makes grown men whimper. An item that relates to a topic that cannot be spoken out loud…..
Yes folks……Hubby also went to buy………….tampons …. gasp!!!! I admit it, I sent my loving husband to do the one thing he abhors (shop) and to make it entirely worse, I asked him to buy female products….. the horror!!!
Now, one might say that his agreement alone to purchase this unspoken woman product would show that’s he’s not a bad guy after all. But the story doesn’t end here.
ring-a-ling….. ring-a-ling (that’s my cell phone ringing)
“Hi Babe” it’s hubby calling
“Hey, I’m at Costco and I can’t find the tampons you want”
“Well, they’re usually up front by all the toiletries”
“Yeah, that’s where I am, but I don’t see them”
“They should be in a pink box… you really can’t miss them”
“I’m standing here…. Always, Kotex….. pads, panty liners” he’s now reading the boxes to me – out loud!!
“No hon, those are all pads… not tampons. You’re in the right area, just move to the tampon section”
“I seriously don’t see them”
“I don’t think that’s possible… maybe they moved them?”
“Geez, I’m gonna have to ask someone” WOW.. he’s gonna ask someone???????????
“Ok, call me back if you need me”
ring-a-ling….. ring-a-ling (it’s 3 minutes later)
“Did you find them?”
“Nope, I asked the woman who works here”
“And, she started by asking me if I looked up. So I replied, Yes. I know I’m a man, and if it’s not directly eye level we generally don’t see it but I did indeed look up. So, she walked over to the area with me and helped me look. And it doesn’t seem like they have any.”
“Awwww babe….. you asked the woman to help you find tampons…..”
“Yes, and you know, there were a good 5-6 women standing around all giggling at me…”
“So anyway, you’re out of luck. And oh, by the way, I bought some steaks.” as if somehow this makes his excursion more Man-ly…….
So, there you have it folks. Either hubby spent a good 30 minutes concocting a story that was detailed enough to explain why he wasn’t coming home with tampons or, he really is a good guy. I’ll let you be the judge!
