You Have To Be Thick Not To Get This

Humor / Tracy Beckerman /

"How do you like the new tortilla chips?" I asked my husband as he chomped on a new tortilla chip while we watched TV.

"I like them," he said. "They're thinner than the other ones you've gotten."

"Actually, they're thicker," I said. "It's the same company that makes the thin ones you like, but now they make a thicker version."

"These are ...Read more

Humor / Tracy Beckerman /

"What's a snood?" I asked my husband while I sat on the sofa perusing a new clothing catalog.

"I don't know," he said, chuckling. "What's snood with you?"

"I didn't say what's new," I said lowering the magazine. "I said, 'what's a snood?'"

"You put that in the wrong way," I said to my husband as I stood over him, watching as he loaded the dishwasher.

"Are you backseat dishwasher-loading?" he asked me.

"It's not a big deal," I said. "It's just that all the dinner plates should be loaded on the bottom, in the front, facing the same way."

He shook his head, wiped his hands on a ...Read more
