Use Your Words:The Husband Definition

Today’s post is a monthly writing challenge. If you’re new here, this is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once. All of the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the recipient will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
I’m using: husband ~ smelly shoes ~ broken toothpick ~ cat hair ~ coffee

They were submitted by: Spatulas on Parade.

 Dictionary of Life:
Husband (huzbend): noun
1. the spouse who breaks more things than he fixes.
2. the person in the house with smelly shoes, who drops broken toothpicks around the house like breadcrumbs, leaves whiskers the size of cat hair in his sink and does not come when called, but will be there in a second if he smells coffee.
3. the placer of wet towels upon upholstered furniture.
4. the one smart enough to use suntan lotion at the pool but burns to a crisp on the golf course.
5. the spouse who only calls after dinner is in the oven to say that they'll be late.

6. the spouse who always lets on that he's done something wrong by bringing home flowers.
7. the oblivious wearer of mismatched socks.
8. someone who cannot pay for his gas inside the store without buying something they don't need.
9. the deleter of all the computer files.
10. the person who forgets to put the trash out on trash pickup day. Every time. Even if you block their car door with the recycle bin they just step over it and go off to work.
Or is that just my house?

  1. There is a lot of truth to your list ;-)
    Can't blame him for showing up at the smell of coffee, though.

    Now, the gas station? Only because it's called gas station it doesn't mean you're not supposed to buy a cold beverage, a chocolate bar or something else with your name on it..! I love buying stuff at gas stations!

  2. Mmmmm can't relate. I think you need to train him better. Maybe I could help you while munching on your goodies which, by the way, I am still waiting for the muffins you promised me.

    1. LOL, I think there may be some universal husband traits.

  5. If I didn't know better I would swear we were married to the same man! Men, they live in their own little world oblivious to all that goes on around them...unless it involves sports!

    1. Yes, #9 is why he has his own laptop (actually he has 2) and I have mine (well, I have 2 also). But suffice it to say that he's not allowed to touch mine.

  9. Haha! Love this-so creative. Can so relate to the sunscreen thing. If we're at home hubby will lotion up...out playing with the guys...he'll come back redder than a tomato. 😐

  11. LOL you nailed the definition perfectly.

  12. That definition sounds familiar...Can I add "notices the dust on the ceiling fan, but never does anything about it..."

  13. I'm the breaker and the fixer, but he's definitely the wiper of hard drives (on our joint XBOX)!

    Men: can't fix 'em, love 'em anyway.
