Another marriage conversation: "You know whose fault this is?"

The Scene: Our home

The Players: My husband John and me

Background info: I voted for Obama. John didn't.

John calling to me from our bathroom: Robbie, did you pick up my prescriptions?

Me: Yes!

John: Where are they?

Me: On the bathroom counter in the bag.

(A few minutes pass)

John: Robbie, did you get all my medicine?

Me as I go to bathroom: Yes, they're in the bag.

John: My Atenolol is not in there.

Me: It's in those blue package things. They don't put them in the bottle anymore.

John: What? No.

Me: You have to punch them out.

John inspects new packaging: No. I don't like this at all.

Me: It's just different packaging. The pills are the same.

John: I don't like it! I don't like change.

Me laughing: Life is hard.

John: I am going to punch them out and put them in my old bottle.

Me laughing: Seriously?

John: Yes. I don't like change.

Me: Okay,honey. Whatever makes you happy.

John: You know why they did this don't you?

Me: Uh, no, I don't.

John. One word. Obama.

OH mY GOSH! I think our husbands were twins seperated at birth! That exact conversation could have taken place at our house. Frankly, its amazing any men voted for Obama at all considering their fear of change!

Ha. Obama must scare the #$^& out of him.

Well, I think he's right. I agree that not all change is good, however. Funny! I love it.

Oh I just love John! He seriously needs to be recorded so we can play him back whenever we need a laugh.

Too funny.

Plus, it's probably cheaper.
