It is all Greek to me

Yep it is Friday once again and quite frankly I seem to have lost the track of time. With the Christmas holidays and New Year's Eve and people coming to visit I am a bit confused. I got up this morning thinking it was Tuesday.

After our last guest left yesterday morning we picked up my friend last night. We used to be roommates for quite a while and all I can say about her is that she rocks. We went out to dinner with the hubby and another friend, both of whom were smitten with her.

We went to our favorite Greek restaurant where the hubby ordered the Sokrates platter as he always does. In the middle of dinner he urged me to get up and let him out, his lips pressed tightly together. I thought he was joking. He wasn't.
He emerged from the men's a short while later and resumed dinner. When we got the following conversation ensued:

Me: Are you okay? What was wrong with you at the restaurant?
Him: "It is so weird but every time I eat this dish I feel like I need to puke."
Me: (frowning and probably having questionmarks in my eyes) Did you actually puke?
Him: "No, not really"
Me: Why did you go to the men's then?
Him: "I thought I was going to puke"
Me: Why did you stay so long then?
Him: "Oh I just burped and tried to not puke"
Me: Has it ever occured to you not to eat that dish anymore if it doesn't agree with your stomach?
Him: "Yes but it is so delicious I can't help it."
Me: ???

I was speechless. That man loves himself the Sokrates platter so he shall have it. Next time I am going to let him sit near the loos though.

On another note. Here goes another meme. Everybody on my Blogroll is encouraged to do it :) I promise this one is way easier than the last.

Why would your husband do that? That's so bizarre!

Mags said...

Um...though your husband is very sweet and I like him b/c he loves you so much...he's weird. LOL...I can't believe he'd keep eating it!!

Also, thinking about you being pissed off and sounding like you have tourettes is wicked funny!!

Also wanna say that it is nice to see that my wife has so many "visitors"...
So long.

Her hubby

Laney-Paney - it is truly bizarre but men are funny sometimes.

Mags - neither could I. He is sweet but weird and the tourettes thing...well unfortunately true. I swear like a sailor.

While I am at it I may as well admit that I am allergic to chicken and get diarreah. I may have mentioned that before. I can't stop eating chicken...maybe that's why the hubby and I go together so well LMAO.

What is with all of us. I love lettuce, can't eat it, though I do and then I just suffer. How can we like something that makes us so sick?

As for #7, I laughed my a$$ off. Tourette's I think I'm blaming my swearing on that next time!!

Okay, my turn: I have problems when I eat/drink too much dairy, but it doesn't stop me from enjoying a good milkshake or ice cream sundae...

This is beginning to sound like a group therapy session!

I can honestly say I wouldn't keep eating something if it had that effect on me. Men are so weird!

I know men who do this as, I avoid any situation that may make me hurl.
I just don't get it.
