The Jedi Marriage Trick

I waved my hand.

“You will go to the grocery store and buy me some laundry detergent.”


“You WILL go to the grocery store and buy me some laundry detergent.”

One eye blinked open at me disdainfully.

“This is not the husband you are looking for.”


Snarky comments you will not make to your husband, even when wide open he does leave himself.

I am SUCH a good wife.

But I totally thought it!

    Can I be your Padawan? After 18 years I have yet to master control over the snarky comments. Poor Larry. Teach my the ways Master Mayhew 🙂

    Well I completely failed in this…. so instead I’m working on teaching/trainning my son to be *perfect* and anticipate everything his future wife will want………. or maybe I’m just keeping my skills sharp in case I find another guy……. not sure on that one yet

    Good luck on your future advancement in the force

    I think when dealing with Husbands you need not the force but the power of the Schwartz.

    I am a big fan of “you want to go home and rethink your life” for my 10 year old.

    My husband and I really enjoyed reading this post and all the comments. Love it!!! We both agree that neither of us could ever resist a good snarky comment and commend your self control.
