Just Say Yes

Out of 3.5 years of marriage, I think Husband made his biggest mistake yesterday. I was finishing some work in our office yesterday evening, when I heard the doorbell ring. Husband, who had the day off, answered the door. All I heard was him say, “No, we’re not interested,” and close the door. I didn’t think anything of it. A couple minutes later, he poked his head in the office and said, “You didn’t want Girl Scout cookies, right?” I think I’ve said here a time or two or three how much I love Girl Scout cookies. I gave him the “that’s-really-not-funny” look, expecting him to say, “just kidding!” But he gave this scared smile, and I realized he wasn’t joking. Then, in a very mature way, I said, “WHAT?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!” He said, “Oops,” and ran off. In the end, he redeemed himself. A few minutes later he came back into the office, almost out of breath, and said, “We’re getting 2 boxes of Thin Mints.” It still makes me laugh to think of my six-foot husband running after a tiny Girl Scout on the street, saying, “I made a mistake! We want Thin Mints!” In the end, it all worked out. But to be on the safe side, I’ll be answering the door next year come Girl Scout cookie time.

Oh that is so funny.....if only you had a video of the chase!!!!
My husband is just the opposite...he can't say not interested to Anyone!!! He buys it all or invites them in!!! I tell him to just say NO and he says he doesn't want to be rude/ha
