Conversations with my over acheiving husband

Heather: Hey were you able to fix the printer?

Jon: Yeah

Heather: Great! How did you manage to do it.

Jon: I took the coat hanger out of it.

(He is so smart)


Jon: Check this out I just don't know how this happened!

(Jon is completely elated as he shows me how much extra room he has in his once snug pants)

Heather: Well it might have something to do with the fact that you are running to a hundred different houses every day to deliver papers and then you paddle hard core on the river for an hour two or three times a week at Dragon boat practice.

Jon: I also usually run before practice as well.

Heather: Yeah dear I have no idea why you are losing weight.

Jon: I just feel like I should be doing more.

(shaking my head, yeah he is definitely a couch potato)


(Jon walks in the bedroom after papers at about 5 in the morning)

Jon: hey can you look at my head and tell me if I am bleeding?

Heather: Uh a little maybe why?

Jon: Well when I was delivering papers to this house I ran under a tree and It was dark and I could not see this branch and I ran straight into it. I saw this big flash of light like lightening and then I woke up on the ground.

(thank heavens for the baseball hat on his head, without it he would likely have needed stitches, but with hitting the front of his head on the branch then the back of his head on the ground when he fell he has had a mild concussion, the dizziness passed pretty quickly but he has had quite the headache for a couple of days.)


Ryan: Dad how did you hurt your head?

Jon: I ran into a tree when I was delivering papers.

Ryan: Why did you run into the tree?

Jon: Because it was dark and I couldn't see the branch.

Ryan: Next time you should use a flashlight and be more careful.

(out of the mouths of babes)
