OT: An "out-of-the-blue" comment from my wife

My wife and I were driving down the highway having a somewhat rambling conversation. One part of the conversation touched on the need to update our wills and post death instructions (organ donation, cremation, etc.). The conversation then shifted onto other topics (how long we were expected to stay at our daughter's place, plans for the rest of the week, etc.). Then,

Wife - "You can do whatever you want with my body."

Me – Nearly driving off the road.

Wife - "No. No. I meant after I'm dead and cremated."

Me – Three days later, I am still getting a chuckle out of this example of our gaps in communication skills.

Has this ever happened to you? One of you makes an "out-of-the-blue" comment that the other total misconstrues (hopefully with comic results)?

I'm slightly afraid to comment on this, but that's funny as hell.

That's mildly creepy.

But along the general comment, I'm just amazed at how often a line from some completely out-of-context classic rock song gets mixed into the conversation, and how both of us were thinking it. Sort of a "you took the words right out of my mouth, it must have been while you were kissing me" kind of thing.

I suppose it's what happens when you spend a lot of time with one person for years.

I think all couples have these out-of-the-blue conversations. I know a lot of the ones we have, I am the one who makes the out-of-the blue comment. Sometimes I do it on purpose to make HokieEnginerd have that "Huh?" moment/expression. Sometimes the randomness comes from just train of thought.

All the time. Last week I had to buy a new "training" suit and I told my wife I was going on to amazon because "there is a hole in the crotch of my drag suit". She almost pissed herself.

Leg for making me and HokieEnginerd laugh at that one.

The other year, HokieEnginerd ordered some wood chunks for smoking. His order was delivered while he was working. He called on his way home and we were chatting about our days, what came in the mail and whatnot. I told him that he got a box. He reminded me that he had ordered some wood chunks. So I opened the box and without choosing my wording carefully told him "Your package was your wood."

So what you are saying is your box was filled with his wood?

So like it was a......dick in a box?

He said give to me Roscoe

πŸ™„ it was chunks of a tree in a box. You totally killed the phrasing joke...

Ah, the delivery man brought the lumber.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

It's important to point out who received the lumber from the delivery man in this situation.

At this point, does it really matter?

As long as SOMEBODY got some lumber.

It's not that odd, she says this to me every time you're out of town.

Galen, is that you?

I like to have these odd out of the blue conversations and awkward moments on the first or second date and thus ensure that said woman doesn't become my wife.

I think if you're plan is to talk about what you are going to do with her body after she dies on the first or second date then you probably will make sure no woman becomes your wife. Unless she has a special fetish, but again a little forward for a first date in my opinion. But who knows dating has probably change since it I last attempted it.
