Arlo wants a treat.
Well, yes. What did you think husbands were supposed to be?
The “Honey-Do’s” are flashing before his eyes.
Janis, that should get you a hundred replies!
She sees him as a dog that just likes to be petted, and he sees her as a cat that’s always about to do something unexpected.
When a conversation starts with “I was thinking”, from SWMBO, I usually shut down, too.
Who’s a good Arlo? Who’s a good Arlo? You are, yes you are.
…. men are dogs…known fact…
Kind of reminds me of my mom’s complaint of her husband after he retired as a OTR truck driver. He felt guilty for being gone for so much that he felt he needed to be in the same room as her all the time. She’s pretty independent and started feeling suffocated, so she made him go out and get a part time job so she could have a little alone time again.
Yes. And we love it.
Arlo – you asked for that one. (as the glaze slowly oozes from his eyes and spreads across his face – been there, done that)
Blah, blah,blah, Arlo, blah, blah, steak, blah,blah, blah, beer, blah, blah, blah, blah, naked, blah, blah…
It’s like he only wanted the time of day, but the answer was how to build a clock.
Short attention span.
I shouldn’t be left alone.
Pet with Benefits . . .
Face it, Janis hasn’t “needed” Arlo since Gene was “in the oven”. In a modern-day society, men are superfluous, for the most part.
My dog listens to me much better than my husband does. My dog wants to be with me all the time. Husband tries to leave the room as soon as he can when I stop talking. I don’t talk to him much.
He’s hearing every word she says; he’s just not listening to them. But, hey, one out of two ain’t bad…
