Marriage 201, Lecture 441: My straight man

SH: I'm funny.

Me: No. You're not. I'm the funny one in this relationship.

From Janet and Marty.

SH: I'm funny.

Me: Not really.

SH: Well, I parrot funny things like "boner" and "You said 'wood.'"

Me: Those aren't really funny.

SH: No, but they're annoying.

Me: Which isn't funny.

SH: It is to me.

Later
SH: I should know better than to say anything. It all goes straight to your blog.

Me: You're compensated.

He is too funny.

It's all in the delivery.

"I have orange juice" is not funny. Except when SH says it...

Sorry CF, you're wrong on this one.

He's "compensated;" Hysterical!

I am the funny one in my relationship also. Eric only thinks he is funny - there is a difference.

SH said...

Gary, you and I (and Tom) have compatible senses of humor. Unfortunately, what's funny to us is annoying to others, including CF (and Kathy, who is especially annoyed when I say "Beats me").

Well, of course, it goes to your blog. Isn't that a given?
