The Wife Hat: Husbandisms

If you know my husband and I, then you know we are as different as night and day. We are proof that opposites attract, but also proof that God has a sense of humor. We both get from point A to point B completely differently. Yet, we are always on the same page. I’m loud. He’s reserved. I’m the right brain. He’s the left. He loves to do taxes. Enough said.
Our differences are pretty entertaining. The latest difference stems from how to open a cereal box. To be honest, I don’t really give it much thought. I open the box and I eat my cereal. Case closed. Here’s a peek into the latest conversation about this.

Ryan: Who taught you how to open a cereal box?

Stephanie: What?

Ryan: The box is destroyed!

Stephanie: No, it’s not. It still closes.

Ryan: I don’t get it. It’s like you’re in a hurry or something.

Stephanie: Ryan, it’s not that bad.

Ryan: Stephanie, you open it like you’re a racoon digging through trash.

  1. I am so on Hubby’s side for this one. In theory.

    Yes, I love a tidy box. Do I have time to get a letter opener and gently pry apart the box and leave it in pristine condition. NO.

    So, my box looks hubby’s.

    But, we have kids. Ages 12 & 14. So, even Stephanie’s box looks better than ANY box the kids ever open.

    I was completely anal & perfectly organized before having kids. With each child I became less & less neurotic. (imagine that!) My own hubby thinks if we had only two more kids I might be perfectly laid back!

  2. I didn’t even think of that: What is he going to do when the kids begin to open the boxes! You are so right – kids are going to make him more laid back. Although, after looking at the boxes side by side, I guess I’m on his side on this one too. 🙂

  3. I totally agree with Ryan. Steph, you destroy the flap from the first time you open it. It drys out the food. Go Ryan.
