Christmas Lists

Conversation between me and my hubby last night:

DH: "So, would you like a parrot for Christmas?"

Me: "Uh, no."

DH: "Why not? Don't you like birds?"

Me: "Parrots are a big mess. My cousins had one and they were a mess. Plus, you probably would teach it to say stuff like, 'Clean the house, Betty.' "[Betty is his nickname for me.]

DH: {laughs} "That's a great idea. Are you sure you don't want a parrot?"

Me: "Yes, I'm sure."

DH: "Well, what about an Ove Glove?"

Me: "You are kidding me, right?"

DH: "No. They were talking about the Ove Glove in nursery today and how it is a great gift."

Me: "I don't remember that."

DH: "Well, they were. Okay, what about a turtle neck?"

Me: "I am not a big fan of turtle necks. Unless it is real cold out."

DH: "You are too hard to buy for!"

Me: "Would you like me to make you a list?"

So I did. We'll see how it goes.

Scripture of the Day: 3 Nephi 1:6


  1. Please tell me that this conversation happened a month ago and your present is hiding in a garbage bad outside with the others.

  2. No this was definitely last night. He is never done with Christmas shopping until last minute.

  3. HAHAHa- lets hope it goes better than the birthday list. I am totally staying tuned for more.

  4. OH MY GOODNESS! This is so funny!
    I was there for the ov-glove conversation, and I am still unconvinced.
    I am interested to know what you put on your list...

  5. After this many years of marriage, why don't you initiate with THE LIST hanging around Dec 1st? Your kids are old enough to help you out with DH. A parrot, really? Yikes.

  6. Would love to know if the list works! Oh and I am so with you on the parrot. Can you say MESSY!! Corinne told me today she has enough money to buy a parakeet. -- My answer "uh, no." same as yours :)
