Husband Help 101 – Things He SHOULD Say

You need to make me a list of things I should say, so that I can just look it up and say the right number and then never get it wrong.”

Of course I could not resist the opportunity to launch into such a sensible request made by my very wise Husband a few weeks ago.  I, naturally, took him literally and have been working away furiously on a few of the numbers ever since.

Here we go:

#2: Yes – it actually does make your bum look big, but you should put on that green dress because you look amazing in that.

# 8: The black shoe looks better.

#16: Woah – that outfit looks great!  (I’m not sure “Sleek and sexy in a slimming sort of way,” is that credible anymore but it still beats a traditional Yes!” and run for your life response.)

#24: I still love you. Very much.*

#29: Yes

#30: Yes dear

#31: Of course

#32: What pimple?

# 38: Dinner was outstanding tonight. It was good of you to cook for a change. (Ahem!)

#39: I’m cooking dinner tonight! Again.

#42: Mmm….A boat cruise…

#49: I would be honoured to carry you over the threshold. (Sorry love, but pushing me over in a trolley just won’t cut it.)    

#54: Right – you have put on some weight but it’s okay…  I don’t mind.

#55: What extra weight? I can’t see any.

# 68: You are just as glamorous, beautiful and magnificent as the day I met you. In fact, you are even more so. (Do not snigger.)

Want to help me complete and perfect my list? Add your number now. You may even want to print and place it in a highly visible area…

* Provide authentic back-up for this. Needs to be stronger than “Just ‘cos,” and “I’m still here, aren’t I?”

    this is THE best chicken/soup/lasagne/fish (fill in appropriate meal) i have EVER tasted! (note to hubbies: do NOT ask where it was bought or you lose the impact of previous statement and may be hit over head with frying pan)

  3. Camilla says:

    Go back to sleep darling. I’ll get up for the crying baby.

  4. Momma says:

    You don’t have a big bum so how can it look big in that?

  5. Laura says:

    “Who brought that over?” should ALWAYS be replaced with “You make the most amazing desserts!” If I didn’t actually make it, you still get brownie points.

  6. zalman says:

    “I don’t agree with you but I still love you dearly”

  7. Bec says:

    I am still laughing my head off. Ha ha ha ha ha
    My contribution is : Sorry – because that is something he forgets to say.

  8. The Husband says:

    All I can say is that as an old veteran number 2 is definitely a trap.

  9. Terri says:

    Ha ha I love this. I can’t think of any to add. You did a great job.

  10. Melanie says:
