Mrs. Grumpy Hates Me

Tonight Mrs. Grumpy took me and the tribe to an outdoor party for the kids at the school where she works.

So we're sitting up in the bleachers watching a free-for-all volleyball game with about 50 kids on each side hitting these HUGE oversized beach balls back and forth. While this is going on the Principal comes over, and Mrs. Grumpy introduces us.

Then Ms. Principal looks out at the game and says "those are the biggest balls I've ever seen."

I said "Why, thank you."

I'll be sleeping on the couch tonight. Possibly longer.

What? The prinipal didn't appreciate that rare and perfect opportunity for a joke? Chris is a principal and he would have loved that joke. Hell, he probably would have beat you to the punch. Kudos! For not letting that one slip by.

Sleeping on the couch, yes, but with or without the family jewels?

Nurse K said...

She hates funny shit? Sad.

peedee said...

It was a night for balls. I had a similar instance. I too a sleeping on the couch as well.

i think that's more of a response of a stereotypical neurosurgeon than a neurologist.....

And, please, how do I get spluttered coffee out of my MacBook keyboard?

Kim Kasch said...

OMG - you didn't...REALLY?

Guess I'm getting old, oh wait, I already am.

I don't know what I would have done if my husband said it. I know he would have thought it - but REALLY said it. . .

Maybe you spoke the truth . . . I'm just saying

Old MD Girl said...

Seriously? You got the couch for that?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Okay, maybe I'm just exaggerating my punishment for dramatic effect, a little bit...

CK Lunchbox said...

It would've been worth it.

Rx Intern said...

Excellent...I'm not the only one who made ball joke and got a punishment (everyone thought it was funny, but I still got a couple punches to the arm for it).

Chris@Maugeritaville said...

Oh, man, that's hilarious. How could any guy NOT come back with that?

Fiz said...

I've never made my husband sleep on the sofa, or the spare room! (Mind you, I slept in it myself when my insomnia and his snoring began to drive me demented!)

DreamingTree said...

You could have said, "that's what she said." Love "the office."

The Good Cook said...

Oh.. you would be in so much trouble at my house!

auffer said...

My wife would've thought that was funny and certainly wouldn't have put me on the couch for it.

It must suck to be old. =/


LOL, confirmation word: Her lurv.

mojitogirl said...

I find the punishment a big severe. Does she not share your skewed view of the world? Or is she just OVER IT?
Come on Mrs. G, humor makes the world go around! Even if it was your boss he made the joke to!

Lilorfnannie said...

That was AWESOME. Don't ever stop saying stuff like that. ;-)

Hey, You said...

Dr. Grumpy, I just have to ask, what were you wearing?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

My usual attire of shorts and a T-shirt.

ER's Mom said...

And the shorts covered everything...I hope.

;)

As the wife of a self-proclaimed comedian, I'm guessing that she's just over it. You can only hear the same jokes so many times over the years before they are old and not so funny. Luckily for my husband he gets a fresh batch of 20 18-year old Navy puppies each week to subject to his comedy. They think he's hilarious and can't believe it when he tells them his wife is over it.
