This bit of conversation took place over the phone between my husband and I recently. Me: I have nothing to wear to this event. It says chic attire. Unknown Papi: Sheik attire, what does that mean? Me: I don’t know. I guess not over the top dressy. I was thinking I could wear my skinny black jeans with… Unknown Papi: Shouldn’t you be wearing something
In a marriage there are bound to be ups and downs. You have to keep it all in perspective and find the funny wherever you can. I love me some everyday marriage humor, the kind of humor that happens sin querer queriendo (unintentionally) is bound to make me laugh over and over again.

Conversation between Unknown Papi, Put Pie (about 2 years and nine months old), and Unknown Mami (about 480 months old).
