You know you're in tricky territory when...

Category Everything Else
... your wife starts out a conversation with "For some reason, I was thinking about <your old girlfriend's name goes here> today...".

I don't care if you *have* been married for nearly 24 years...

I kept hearing the following refrain cycling through my head...

"Beware, maties...  Ahead there be dragons..."


Gravatar Image1 - If I can quote Paris Hilton, "That's hot!"

Gravatar Image2 - Fortunately for me, it was in context of "I wonder if she saw you now, whether she'd regret letting you go..."

In other words, I didn't have to sleep on the couch last night.

Gravatar Image3 - Wow! Your wife knows your old girlfriend's name?
Hmmm. The movie quote that springs to mind is one from Pretty Woman, "...and where are they? Shopping together?"

Gravatar Image4 - almost as bad as "Does my butt look big in this?"

Gravatar Image5 - Sounds like a Jeff Foxworthy line. If you've been married for more than 5 minutes, you should know you need to avoid that trap at all costs. How about "Do I look fat in this?" Runaway!!!

Gravatar Image6 - Those words are almost as scary as "honey, we need to talk". Be afraid, be very afraid.


Gravatar Image7 - I can pretty much guarantee that they are *not* shopping together, Deb... Let's just say I didn't date much "growing up", and this particular person was someone who I spent a great deal of time with prior to meeting Sue and subsequently getting married.
