Shifting Blame

So…yesterday my hubby took me to the theater to see the movie “Fireproof.”  BTW, for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, go! Anyway, I was able to get dinner done before we left, but decided to skip eating until after we got back from the movie because I wasn’t very hungry then. Well, sometime after that, I got hungry. About halfway through the movie, I heard this loud HOWLING sound and realized with alarm that it came from my stomach. And would you know it, it happened at a point in the movie when there was silence, so there was no muffling or muting by background noise.

I cast a sideways glance at Joseph and saw him cracking up as quietly as he could – he was laughing at me! So I did what any smart, self-preserving wife would do. I turned to him and using the best chiding tone, in the loudest stage-whisper I could muster, I said: “Joseph!!!”

I call it deflection. You may call it shifting blame…

    Too cute…
    That’s what men are for: to kill the bugs and take the blame for any noises coming from any body part…It’s the right thing to do!!!
