What He Said. What I Heard. (Husband to Wife Translation)

So... I'm sitting at the kitchen table this morning making origami doll bookmarks. (Yeah, no pictures. Yet. I seem to have misplaced the cable that links my camera to my computer. Shame on me!)

After an hour or so of cutting and folding, my husband strolls out of his office and says, "Wife. Whatcha doing?" (Yes, he calls me Wife. I call him Husband. If I call him Dave, he knows I'm mad about something. I can't remember the last time he called me Anne!)

I smile up at him lovingly (ok I glare at him a bit, because he is disturbing my creative process) and reply "I'm making origami doll bookmarks, Husband. Aren't they beautiful?"

"Cool!" Husband says as he looks upon an army of headless kimono bodies. "I'm so happy I have a crafty wife."

Ha! I, of course, heard "Please feel free to go to Michael's and spend as much money as you want. This makes me happy."

I now am the proud owner of two bags of new crafting supplies :-)

Ladies, please feel free to share this translation with your husbands. Or not.

Until I find the camera cable and can post my Origami Doll Bookmark tutorial...

Hugs and blessings~

  4. I love your translation. But I think I heard him say go to the yarn store.

    Hmmm... I think my husband is grateful I've not yet added knitting or crochet to my list of hobbies! But... I did host a basket weaving party a few nights ago, proudly brought home my new basket to show my husband, and he announced, "Wife. I am so glad you can find at least a little bit of time to weave baskets. I know you enjoy it." POOF! There went another boatload of money to Gratiot Lake for more reed. Some men never learn. Thankfully :-)


  6. Love this! Sounds like me and my You make gorgeous beautiful dolls!!
