My Wife Called Me A. . . .

I was having my usual breakfast this morning.  I put plain yogurt in my bowl and then add a few spoonful's of sugar.  I stir this up until it is well mixed.  Then I add both Honey Bunches of Oats and Cheerios and to moisten it, I add cranberry juice.  Hey, don't laugh until you try it, it is really goooood.

As I was adding the Honey Bunches of Oats, I spotted a huge flake.  I had never seen a flake that big, so I pulled it out and took it over and showed my wife.  I asked her if she had ever seen a flake that big and that I had never seen one that large.  Of course she came back with "it takes one to know one".  That was a good comeback which I had never expected and I laughed and laughed.  So, today starts out with "wife one - me zero".  Now eat your breakfast and have a great day, you hear?

    1. We started dating back in junior high. I graduated in 1961 from high school, so you do the math (grin). She has had plenty of time to figure me out.

  6. As a farmer, my late father-in-law led a very regimented life. For example, every morning he had to get up at 5:00am to milk the cows.

    Every night, before going to bed, his wife would prepare his breakfast, which was always the same……

    Five boxes of his favorite cereals; from Cheerios to Bran Flakes, carefully aligned on the kitchen table.

    He always feasted from the same large bowl; a childhood gift, with letters of the alphabet and colored designs surrounding the edges.

    Because of his 5:00am arising, I never joined him for breakfast. But, I’d wager he ate each of the five cereals in sequence, from left to right, as arranged by his wife. To add some spice to his life, perhaps on rare occasion, from right to left.

    As a practical joke, I once rearranged things by switching cereals among boxes; for example, placing the Cheerios into the Bran Flakes box, and vice versa.

    Anyway, he never made mention of this outrageous change to his routine. Either because he was a humorless old coot, or was suffering the affects of dementia.

    1. I like to mix my cereals together, so his method seems like a good one to me.

    1. Yep, she got me and unlike you, I didn't see that coming. That is why it made me laugh so hard.
