Default Wife says "NO MORE BANANAS"!!

Unfortunately for her, my giant mekongs just arrived. I think I will just tell her they are pups from the basjoo that just popped up. As coach Kline says "what mama don't know won't hurt her"

I'm still trying to figure out if she has a point when enough is enough for her lol. I think I'm lucky and she doesn't care. I figured 3 rooms full of stuff being overwintered inside would have but nope not yet she says she likes the jungle. Even after I hooked up my grow lights she said I love the lights it's like having sunlight inside and wants couple more. Think she is as crazy as me I guess

I'm lucky, my husband is getting as obsessed as I am. One variety turned into three varieties, then that somehow turned into... uh... 12. We're stopping there for now but he knows full well that we'll end up with more eventually, and he's cool with that.

I used to do the same thing with my ex wife regarding guns. I had so many that when I bought a new one, she'd say, "I haven't seen that one before." I'd just tell her she must have overlooked it.

You must be going about it the wrong way. I downloaded all the paperwork off the Internet, filed it, my wife was served, and it only cost me $78.

Sometimes you have to choose between kids and cash. I chose kids. You can't have it all... I don't consider that I'm the loser here, on the contrary. And I can have as many nanners as I want!!! Just got 4 this week. 2 Namwahs, 1 Ice Cream and 1 Mysore.

Yeah, if kids had been involved it would have been a different story. If there's kids, it HAS to go to court.

As long as you've got kids and nanners, what else could you want? I'm happy with this.

Default Re: Wife says "NO MORE BANANAS"!!

Now that i have now added bananas to my vast growing collection hubby has told all of our friends of FB as i post my pics that Ii have gone bananas.

The other day i was training a new agent, insurance not bananas lol and hubby called and as we were talking my new agent blurted out that i was pointing out all the homes that had bananas that we drove past and hubby replied do not let her bring home any more bananas.

The way i look at it if he can keep adding more tools, i can have more bananas!

happy planting to all,

Darla

Tools vs bananas vs kitchen gadgets? When you're single, you can collect them all with wild abandonment. Many times it's good being single...
