Random stuff heard around the house


Sheep Conversation

We are watching a movie.

Me: I know nothing about this movie; they might murder little ponies for all I know.

*kills a sheep onscreen*

Me: see, why do movies have to show that? I understand people eat lamb and stuff for food but sheep?

Rich: sheep is lamb, dummy.

Me: wait – *sings Mary Had a Little Lamb* in my head – oh, never mind

Accents Conversation

We were looking up some swamp tours for our trip to New Orleans.

Me: Y’all getton outta heah. (said in a Cajun accent)

Rich: Get offa my land.

Me: Hey, we’re doing a pretty good Cajun accent.

Rich: Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.

Me: It’s better than me trying to do a British one.

Rich: You get off my land

Rich: What was that? I sounded like Snagglepuss! This is NOT a Heart at Home!

*no offense meant to any specific accent.

Tom Petty Conversation

We were driving home and Here Comes My Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers came on the radio.

Me: Leave it there, I love that song. It’s my favorite Tom Petty one.

Rich: Not mine

Me: No listen, it’s brilliant. When he’s talking about the town being useless and stuff like that, the music is more harsh and solemn. When he talks about his girl though, the music brightens and becomes happy.

Rich: Whatever

Me: I can’t help it if you don’t understand the arts.

Donald Duck Conversation

Rich: Do I have work clothes for tomorrow?

Me: I’ve got to do laundry but I know you have a work shirt in there so you’re good for one more day.

Rich: I have no pants though; I’m not Donald Duck – I think they’d have a problem with me going to work without pants.

Fancy Home and Technology Conversations

We were passing by this old greenhouse….

Me: Those are so neat; if I had a mansion I’d have a greenhouse like the one in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. I’d definitely have a pool, of course. Maybe a tennis court.

Rich: Nah, I wouldn’t.

Me: Oh, and definitely an indoor gym. Yeah, for sure.

Rich: As opposed to an outdoor prison gym? Who has an outdoor gym?

Me: I’m so going to post that on Heard at Home. I’ll send myself an email.

Rich: You can tell Siri to send a note, you know. You don’t use your phone right.

Me: Says the person who still uses AOL and Internet Explorer

Two Funny Email Conversations

Rich sends me a story about that guy leaving One Direction.

Me: You do know it’s One Republic I like, right?


Me: Can you print this? I am out of color ink, yo.

I sent it to Dr. Pepper (had a $5 gift card for Walmart) instead of Rich

Dr. Pepper: The coupon can be printed in black and white. If not, let us know and provide a mailing address.

Me: That was meant to go to my husband. I apologize for my unprofessional email.

Lifetime Movie Conversation

Me to Rich: I’m going to pour water all over you if you fall asleep again during the TV show.

Rich: You know what’ll happen if you do?

Me: You mean like a Lifetime movie type thing? Or some kind of regular thing?


Morning Movie Conversation

We had to be up rather early for an appointment so I was sitting in the living room, putting on my makeup when Rich came in.

Rich: What the hell are you watching? What is this?

Me: The Devil’s Due – a horror movie.

Rich: Why can’t you watch Al Roker and see the weather in New Mexico or something normal? Why are you watching a horror movie at 9:00 AM?

Me: Because there wasn’t a Lifetime movie on.

Not the Right P

We were putting some photos in a weekly themed batch on a group page on Facebook.

Rich: You could use the peacock and I’ll use the P51 Mustang from the air show.

later that night…….

Me: Where is the phone you want of the P51? I’m scrolling through them.

Rich: Slow down

Me: I’m not to the cars yet.

Rich: It’s not a car, you moron. It’s a plane.

Me: No wonder I couldn’t find it.

Lifetime Warning Conversation

Was talking to Mel about a guy she might like and I’ll have to change some of the conversation but here’s the gist of it.

Mel: Well, he does have some issues in his past.

Me: I’d go for it – just be cautious and all that.

Mel: I know, but he’s supposedly much better.

Me: Well, just don’t end up being a Lifetime movie.
