This Is What Happens When . .


You put muffins in the oven, then your pager goes off and you have to go out to a patient call for three hours. Before you leave, you tell your guy that there are muffins in the oven and they need to come out in 20 minutes.

3 hours later, I walk in and this is what I take out of the oven:

  1. Jeanette – I actually checked the smoke detector and it works fine. They must not have smoked much, would be my guess.

    But I did say to him “Don’t you SMELL that??”

    He says, “Yea – they were in a little long, huh?” 🙄

  2. Hockey is a good idea. We just need ice!

    RedFred – I wish! It needs to snow soon around here before I go insane with skiing depravation! 🙂

  3. I know how you feel! My husband does crazy things like that all the time. I tell him that he needs to check a pizza at 12 mins to make sure it doesn’t burn but it can take up to 15 mins to cook. When I bite into the pizza it is doughy because he took it out at 10 mins!

  4. He actually said they were in a little long? LOL. That’s funny. The only thing I can think to say is thank goodness sex is not like making muffins.

    The metaphors I could come up with.

  6. What was he doing when you told him. My wife tells me stuff all the time when I’m not looking at her — and in truth — not paying attention at all.
    I’m like a dog. You have to make sure I’m looking directly at you before you can be certain that I am listening.

    Then you have to cross the whole, “Do I give a crap” hurdle…but that’s another story.

  8. I have to agree with Zygote. It’s not that men are incapable of listening or unwilling to help out, it’s just that you have to make SURE that you have our undivided attention before saying something you want us to remember. So make sure you go stand in front of the ballgame on TV, or whatever, next time you need your man to do something for you.

  9. As a man (last time I checked) can I say standing in front of the TV is not going to work… That’ll just make him angry. Wait for a commercial, and not a funny one, or one about tools, or cars, or beer, or sport, or computer games, or ones with the duck that goes “Aflac” cause we love that one. Better still offer sexual favours, that will get his attention at least for a minute or two.

  10. Lame man you got there. Any dude worth his salt would have killed for freshly baked cup cakes and promptly removed them from the oven on time for his own selfish enjoyment.
