This is why we can't watch the discovery channel together...

My dear sweet husband told me the other day that my head is similar in shape to that of a Beluga whale.

After he picked up all the broken glass and I regained consciousness he then says, "You know I meant that in a loving way."

me: "Oh of course you did. It's really quite sweet."

him: "It's just 'cause your brain is so big you need a big cranium to hold it all in."

me: "Well not all of us are born with heads that can fit atop a pencil."

him: "Oh so my head is too small?"

me: "Well if you're saying mine is the size of a Beluga whale then yes, in comparison, yours is very, very tiny. And not only that, there's really not much shape to it."

him: "Really? So I've got a small block head?"

me: "No, not really a block."

him: "Egg head?"

me: "Nah, an egg still has a shape to it."

him: "So what then?"

me: "Let me think about it."

him: "I was just kidding about your head before. It doesn't really look like a Beluga whale."

Hey, I think the beluga whale is adorable, just like you. :-) So, I would have taken that as a compliment!

Now, it would be a different story if your hubby (or hubby to be) told you that he thought the engagement ring he picked out would look great on your "short, furry little nub of a ring finger".

Yup! That's what my beloved told ME. Hey, I can't help having been born Middle Eastern and hairy.

Leave my hairy knuckles alone!
