The worst part is that I am gradually finding out other stupid things he told me that seem perfectly rational. Grrr...
Omg that is awesome! LOL

My mom just told me this same thing about her DH the other day. Funny.

Hmmm, I know I have some! I just can't remember what they are.

Haha! That is too funny! All of the mom's (about 6 of them) told my whole neighborhood growing up that if you were bad that a bus of nuns would come take you to the "parental home" where all of the bad kids went... they said it was a building across town, which we later learned was the Catholic girls High School!!! The kids on my street, who are now in their twenties, still give the moms a hard time about this!!!

My mom used to tell me that the little coin operated rides in the malls only worked if every seat on the ride was filled! I was an only child so no mall rides for me :)

you know how when you are driving down a long straight highway where you can see in front for miles and way ahead you can see like a mirage or something where the pavement meets the horizon? my dad told me it was called cow water (no clue why) and ever since i always thought that.

 

i didnt find out till our road trip to chicago this past winter that it is totally not called that. doug about peed his pants laughing at me.

Up until I was a teenager I thought it was called girl cheese instead of grilled cheese. And up until I met my FI I said "I don't take anything for GRANITE, and he informed me that it's GRANTED. *Here's your sign* LOLOLOL

One day I was driving along with my two kids in the back seat of the car. I guess they were around 8 & 10. The older one, in an attempt to "educate" the younger one, says "You know that doctors drink pee". My ears are alerted and I ask her why she thinks that. She says "why else do they collect it in cups?" :)

 

Good job I caught that one before she took it into adulthood!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
