My Dear Sweet Husband

For those of you who know Shawn in real life. You know that he does not like to shop. I think it is a combination of spending money, and going around a store that he doesn't really like. So because of this loathing...he rarely goes out to buy anything. Well, the other day I was starting to make dinner when I realized that I needed some carrots for the meal I was making.

I called Shawn on his cell phone and asked if he could stop by the store and get some for me. Then I figured since he was there he could get me a few other things that I would need. I asked him to get carrots, milk, croutons, 5 or 6 tomatoes and 1 yellow/sweet/vidalia onion (I was going to make homemade salsa & was missing those ingredients). My sweet man made his way through the store while talking to me on the phone. I listened as he asked where certain things were. I heard the woman tell him that "No that is not a yellow/sweet onion, those are green onions...the yellow/sweet onions are over there by the potatoes."

When he got home I went to open the garage only to have it practically come off its track. (We later found out Caden had manually locked the garage and when I went to open it...it made the motor go crazy, and caused the problem.) Anyway...this didn't put Shawn in the best mood. He went downstairs and starting trying to contact the "garage guy" to come help fix it.

In the meantime I thought that I would go out to the car and get the groceries that my honey had stopped to get me. As I was emptying the contents I came across this


At first I was a little perplexed. What is this? I thought to myself...I didn't ask him to get me a potato. Then I remembered the conversation that I heard when he was on the phone in the grocery store. That is when it hit me and I couldn't stop laughing. My sweet husband got me a potato instead of an onion!!! It helped to lighten the mood of our impending situation with the garage, and give me a much needed laugh. I need to get this boy out more!


He will probably kill me once he sees this on the blog...so I don't know how long it will last on here. I am in no way trying to make him look stupid, I just thought it was so funny I had to share. Also to his defense...he was in a hurry and I was talking to him on the phone. He wasn't paying the best attention to what he was doing. He really is the best husband in the world! I love you honey!

I am seriously laughing out loud. At first I thought he'd gotten you a jicama instead of a potato, but oh my gosh, that's supposed to be an onion.

That is the funniest thing I've heard lately.

PJ said...

That is REALLY funny!

Laughter is a GREAT part of marriage, so his "opps" was worth the laughing together!

That reminds me of my husband. We are often talking to each other on the phone when he's walking through the store to pick up things for me. It's ok to laugh(with them). JK There have been many times he's come home with something totally different than what I asked for.

This is hilarious, and totally something that my husband would do. Funny how they can complain about grocery shopping when they are by themselves. They should try it with two kids! Mine would never survive!

I can't say that my husband would do this, since he is a farmer. I have to say that story is hilarious. It is sooooo Shawn. He cracks me up all the time.
