Mean wife moment

Ok, I know I'm bad...but the poor beleaguered beloved just got home from a day of security and fire training, sits down on the couch and stretches back with a huge sigh...and Jack the Cat chose that precise moment to jump into his lap for some dude time. Like a 12 lb bowling ball to the unprotected belly and manly bits. The sound of pain and all the air rushing out of his lungs - it was too much.

All three females are howling like hyenas, weak and weeping with laughter, the baby catches on and starts giggling, which makes the Beloved gather up what's left of his dignity and hobble to the kitchen for a drink, and perhaps a cold compress, grumbling about his "mean wife" and offspring. He had a little smirk going on, but still...

The cat, still not sure what our human issues are, is somewhere hiding on the third floor. ("Dude, all I wanted was a little ear and belly scratch...no need to freak out on me!")

It's like any given "Funniest Home Videos" moment. What is it about seeing such things that makes us laugh like that?

(My tummy still hurts!)

He probably was very tired, but he would have to admit that it is a bit funny--LOL. And poor kitty, just wanting a little affection.

Along those lines, have you seen the show on TV called Wipeout? It was on last night when we were giving the kids baths and even though it was mind-numbing, it was so funny. I think guys like it more than women, but it was good for a laugh.

SM - I haven't! But I will look for it. Sometimes the stupider the humor....the more I like it!
