Husbands say the darnest things

Scene: Garth and I had just made a late night, improv dinner and were sitting down to eat when this little gem of a conversation started:

Garth: "I don't know if I want babies."
Me: "What?"
Garth: "Well, if it came down to a boat or a baby, I would chose a boat."
Me: Laughing hysterically...Pause..."Wait, what?"
Garth: "I want a boat."
Me: "You know we can have both?"
Garth: "Yeah... I guess. We'll take our kids on our boat."

Obviously, we are not ready for kids yet at. all. And I'm okay with that.

We kind of had the "baby talk" a few weeks ago. As we were driving down through town, I saw a sign that read "Pet adoptions this Saturday." I read the sign aloud and asked "So, when are we going to add to our little family?" My husband replies, "Oh, honey, I'm not ready to have babies yet." My response, "Um...I was talking about getting another dog." I guess we aren't ready for babies yet either! :)

That sounds like my husband. He wants to retire (yep...like now) and get a boat. And then he expects me to keep working. Hm...not.going.to.happen!

Newlywed Next Door said...

OMG - My husband wants a boat more than anything! I'm sure I asked him "babies or boat" he'd say "BOAT" without any hestitation. He assures me that he does want kids someday but wants to enjoy being young. :-)
