10 Things Your Husband Should Never Say If He Wants To Live

–An old boyfriend once told me I should lose 20 pounds to look like my girl-friend, Jeanie.   He hasn’t been seen since 1980 — Kim Sisto Robinson



1.  Babe,  you’re going to be really pumped;  I bought you a membership for Anytime Fitness.  You can start immediately!


2.  Holy shit, you mean  today is Valentine’s Day?


3.  You know your friend,  Terri?  Yeah,  the one who works at Texas Roadhouse.  Don’t you think her ass resembles Jennifer Lopez’s?


4.  Hey,  I have a great idea,  lets go to the film,  The Interview, instead of Wild.


5.  Did you just have a hot flash…or did you start jogging again?


6.  Well,  that’s interesting,   I had no idea they added extra padding to the back of yoga pants.


7.   Oh, No!  The soccer tournament lands on our anniversary.  Could you cancel our reservation at Belisios for the following week?


  1. Do you really want that second slice of French Silk Pie?


  1. This roast chicken would be outstanding if it wasn’t burnt.


10.  Is the “Victoria Secret Special” on Eastern or Standard time?


—Darlings,  what has your hubs/partner said that drove you INSANE?!  Enlighten me.

    I don’t get it. You mean to tell me these are not helpful ways husbands can communicate with their wives? Huh!

    Oh my, would you look at the time! Um… (ahem) Yeah, gotta run now! *really fast, REALLY fast*

    Kim, these are toooo funny! Can some men really be this clueless?? I guess it’s true what they say — Men marry women hoping they’ll stay the same forever; women marry men hoping to change them. No wonder there are so many divorces, huh?!!

    I am familiar with ‘suicide by cop’. These are all candidates for suicide by girlfriend. And no right thinking jury would return any other verdict.
    The thing that makes me angriest in my relationship is not the things he says, but when he stops listening. A crime.

    I am so blessed. I married a widow dude who’s late wife already trained the “duh” out of him. All i have to do is enjoy the benefits, love him, take care of him, and watch my OWN mouth. I’m more apt to put my foot in it than he is!

    How about if your husband buys you pants with an elastic waistband? I think that’s pretty awful.

    I never really thought about it until I just read your post and tried to answer your question, but in my 20+ years of marriage, my husband has never said an unkind word directed toward me. That doesn’t mean we haven’t argued, but we don’t take digs at each other. So I guess that’s really nice! Now, are there things we do that drive each other crazy? Oh, absolutely. Like when he forgets the things I ask. Or like when I… Oh, there’s no need to continue, is there? 😉

    Cute post. And you gave me an extra reason to give my hubs a hug tonight!

    After I had pushed out our third child who was 10.1lbs, my husband presented me with a two-year gym membership. If I’d had the strength I would have strangled him. I wanted diamonds.

    1. If you get another tattoo I will leave your azz
    2. What do you mean you are in pain, why are you always in pain maybe you are just getting old
    3. Why can’t you just do what I want sometimes, like driving the golf cart while I play
    4. Well just don’t look at the strobe lights during the f’ing concert that should solve the seizure problem
    5. If you would just work through the pain you could lose the extra weight, then you would look great

    And so many others. I don’t think I realized just how truly insensitive he was till I was able to step back from him.

    “I’m not doing_____!”Fill in the blank. ‘Because’ he says,”I do what I want and then I do it again” one of his favorite sayings that really gets on my nerves. I counter with “you’ll do it if I ask you to.” Very sweetly of course. Kim, you had me laughing at “…he hasn’t been seen since 1980”. MEN. What can ya do?

    Padded yoga pants eh? Hmm 🙂

    I remember, long ago, a distant cousin was visiting. My folks wanted tea. They think I make kickass tea – just perfect. So – after handing everyone a cup, I settle down with my own. One of my cousins asks this guy – hey how’s the tea, pretty sure that the guy’s going to go ga-ga over it. The guy thinks for a few seconds…and says “hot?” (as in temperature). Well he has never been seen since.

    Well Kim, the a-holes that said negative things are outstanding in the following areas…

    He loves HIMSELF,

    He believed I should have sibmitt to his authority,

    He was logical everyone else lacked common sense. By the way, he doesn’t have many friends. Surprised? I thought not.

    What you should have done is…

    You have a pretty face, if you lost a few pounds you’d be… I can’t recall and don’t give a fu…….ck,

    And that’s just a fraction of the nobel prize a-holes I’ve kicked out of my life.
    I appreciate the man I have now for who he is. Loving, patient, fun, smart, down to earth.

    Once I said to my husband, “I don’t think these jeans are very flattering on me.”

    He said, “Most jeans aren’t.”

    I would have hit him if it wasn’t true. 🙂

    I think the only time I “stepped in it” was when I bought my (ex) wife some Hostein cow decorated items for the kitchen at Christmas. No, not a “fat” reference because she was freakin’ gorgeous and total aerobics nut. I bought them because she continually told me how much she loved them prior. So, it was my attempt to show her I was listening. She told me it represented domestication for a female. *eyeroll* I couldn’t be further from anything like that. This event was not the reason for our divorce 🙂

    Mine has said things like that “we” (meaning him too but still) aren’t in the kind of shape we used to be. When I call him on it, he’s all “what? We’re not!” He’s a keeper but sometimes, no filter. This post is hilarious, Kim!! I love it! HAHA to padded yoga pants and purchased gym memberships!!!

    One man comment that drives me crazy is “you’re so curvy.” Okay, so lots of men love curves, but when one tells me that over and over again, my brain is seething and thinking it’s just code for “you’re so plump.” Argh!

    Anyway, thank you for this. I needed a good chuckle today 🙂 Hope all is well with you, momma. XOXO

    Oh two balls split between by foot…nope.
    Shawn jokes around about my sanity and my back being all crippled but that is all in good fun. Really. Like waking up in the morning and seeing my hair all whipped into different directions and makeup smeared on my face – he’ll say something like “Oh no. On a scale of one to crazy I’d better go hide the plastic cutlery.” We all joke about it. If you can’t laugh…..

    When I have been talking for five minutes and I receive no comment from his part and I finally ask him what his opinion is and he goes: “Can you repeat?” I can smack him then.
    I have been totally out of the blogging world for the past few months and I just wanted to say thank you so much for keep reading my posts and commenting. Also, a bit late, but I wanted to wish you a very Happy New Year 2015. May all your dreams come true.
