I Fear I've Given Away My Secrets

A couple days ago, Husband brought home a series of racing DVDs that his friend let him borrow. Husband immediately put on the first DVD and watched it, completed transfixed. Then he started speaking in a language I didn’t quite understand, “Check out that Z06!” and “Notice that 564 series has much better performance than the R300.” At this point my eyes glazed over, and I may have been starting to nod off. I decided to entertain myself by making a blueberry and banana crumble for dessert. Husband loved the dessert. (Personally, I thought the bananas got a little mushy, but it was still tasty.) When the first DVD ended, I stopped him before he could even think about putting in the second one. “Please! I can’t take any more!” Husband seemed shocked that I didn’t enjoy the video as much as he did. “Are you sure?” he asked. “Yes, I’m sure. In fact, I made that dessert because I was so bored.” That was the point where Husband made a stunning revelation. “Let me get this straight. I put in a racing video, and I get to watch a show I love and then get a yummy dessert? Sounds like a win-win to me!” Sounds like I just lost-lost all my secrets. And I fear that if I had a fortune cookie right now, it might say something like: “There will be more racing videos and desserts in your future.”

Perhaps his racing videos should coencide with you going out for drinks with the girls instead. I know if I have to watch car races there better be drinking involved or it may be a lose lose situation all around.

Darn husbands and their secret revealing abilities!

Haha! Oh the things we say by accident that they actually listen too. Car racing just makes me sleepy, the constant vroom-vroom-vroom, etc.

Ha! I only know what a z06 is and that's only because I love Corvettes. I'm not a fan of racing and sometimes Sean likes to watch Nascar. That's when I edit photos or read because it's so boring!

You should never have given away your dessert secret. Men tend to remember things like that. :)

Uh oh!! You are in trouble now!! If there is one thing my husband listens to, it is anything having to do with dessert!

LOL, you are SCREWED now, my dear! At least he is okay with you leaving. Racing is so, sooooooo insanely super-boring, yet hubby and his family are obsessed with it! One of them even worked for Nascar for a little while. They're smart people. What do they see in it??

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope that you will come back often. I am really trying to get back in the swing of things.
Your dessert sounds lovely, I personally love mushy bananas! :)
Oh! And my eyes would have glazed over too if I had to watch a DVD like that!
