Randomocities


I'm pretty sure my husband doesn't read what I write.  He has dubbed himself my #1 fan and if nothing else he was the only fan of mine for a long time.  So if only for that he get's longest fan but when I ask him a question about something I mentioned on a post I often get the feeling of the "that's nice" brush down.  Do you know what I am talking about?  It is like when someone asks you a question about what they do and you come up with something quickly so that you don't stare blankly into their eyes.



It is that feeling that comes to mind when I talk to Chris.  He will say things like "I really like the one where you were creative"  What does that even mean?  *Side note is it bad that the word creative automatically cliches to lying in my mind... I'm going to go with probably  (well unless attached to "-writting" or "-ivity")



It is like one of those vacant words that can be morphed to what you will.  "The post where you creatively mentioned your sisters cat?"  "The one with the creative pictures of a faucet?"   I mean really... it is such a vague word "Creative"  I am sure at some point it meant something but I feel like it is used so much now that it is like fine.  I am sure that fine was a great thing to describe an action at some point but unless someone is talking about grain thinkness I'm not a big fan of anything being refered to as "fine".  Some one asks "How you doing?", fine is the nice way of saying either "leave me a lone" politely or "I'm terrible but thanks for bringing it to my attention".

  1. Love these shots and so funny about him saying it was creative. Sounds like my hubby.

  2. Lovely photos of your hubby.

    And... try to put it this way. He probably has no clue about the stuff you enjoy. Most men are like that, including my hubby. But you ask him, and he tells you those vague things because he wants to be nice with you. And that is a good thing. At least he is trying, right? ;)

    Women overthink things. Your post is a good example. My posts would be a good example too if I would write about such things. And there is plenty, believe me. ;) But I am also trying to put myself in my hubby's shoes. And I come to realize that he will never be able to guess what I want (like we see in the movies), or to listen to me all excited when I tell him how many views had my pics on deviantART... :))

    So when I ask my hubby's opinion about something I made, I (try to be) am grateful that he stops, looks as interested as he can, and gives me an answer. He IS trying and I love him for that. ;)

    1. Sorry, I made a mistake and I put my comment as a reply to Sarah. :P I deleted it but it still shows like there was a comment there. You can delete it, and this one too. :)

    1. But it's lovely! I envision him sneak reading it by twilight huddled up with a cup of coffee maybe next to a fire ;P

  5. Oh yeah! I know what you mean! Only my hubby never has been a reader of my blog... Sometimes I will tell him if he wants to know about a certain thing that happened he should go read my blog. :) Nice photos of the hubs too. Love the one with the heart on his lips.

    1. Yea, it is understandable I guess... I mean I do post everyday but still he married me to be enslaved to me right? ;P
