Here’s the Problem

21 Nov

I’m not a fan of traditional romantic cliches. And I have a girlfriend that is really fun to scare. Which makes me an a-hole. (Beth agrees.)

Case in point: The fogged up window in the shower.

Beth writes:

So I respond with:

Now Beth knows this is a joke. I mean, it’s a quote from a TV show we had just watched the night before.

She is not happy. She doesn’t appreciate the joke.

Then Beth writes: Or something like it. I don’t think she uses the letter “u” she’s more of “ya” gal.

This time I respond with:I guess I’ve been watching a lot of American Horror Story lately.

And again she’s not happy.

She points out that she only writes “nice” things to ME.

So then one day I decide to appease to her schmaltzy needs.

But then she comes into the bathroom and she catches me doing it. And then that mischievous imp comes up again. And I figure she caught me. She read the “nice” note already so I let her catch me writing this.  

Again not funny.

Meanwhile I’m rolling on the floor.

(And sleeping on the couch.)

    I laughed so hard at this that I snorted. Appropriate, given the Piggy Man reference, I guess. Sorry, Beth. I gotta give Jorge two thumbs up on these messages.

    So you love her. Just give in once in a while. Make her Christmas. The little things you do for her will make her happy. Have a happy week.

      You clearly need to get a rubber bondage suit and just stand in the shower. Or get Jorge a guest spot on AHS…never seems to end well for them, huh?

      Have you guys seen the AHS “House Calls”? I think they are hysterical to watch, but I would probably need to be institutionalized if it happened to me.

    Aww, come one, allow the romantic side of yourself to come out. LOL re: schmalzy. Haven’t heard that in ages.

    By the way, “AHS” is great, eh?

    My husband and I have a similar twisted sense of humor, it’s nice to know we aren’t alone. Keep up the good work!

    one day you are so going to get attacked in the shower by a guy that dresses in his dead mother’s clothing.

    and Beth is totally going to post the video of you screaming like a total girlie girl all over youtube, Facebook, twitter, everywhere.

  23. James Hernandez November 22, 2011 at 12:42 pm #


    Love is a many splendored thing! In your case an episode of the
    Simpson suffices, Love is a many Strangled Thing!

    Just ask the girl to marry you!!!!!

  28. messenger88 November 26, 2011 at 12:37 pm #

    Hahaha! That’s hilariously twisted! My favorite AHS quote so far? “That girl’s got another cupcake coming”. Watch out for the ipecac flavored treats Jorge. Revenge can be sweet…

  29. Alana November 29, 2011 at 4:28 pm #

    oh my god! i love that show and I’m so going to do this to my husband!! HYSTERICAL!!

  30. Renita wessel November 29, 2011 at 8:23 pm #

  31. Marta November 30, 2011 at 1:23 pm #

    Jajaja…muy bueno. Do you know you can write in the mirror when it is without vapor and then when you have a hot shower words will appear? like a horror film…I think we did so when we were children 😉

  32. kraftypixie December 2, 2011 at 6:29 pm #

    Too funny! She needs to do something radical to get you back though… Love AHS!

  33. jshady December 6, 2011 at 11:13 am #

  34. gstein66 December 6, 2011 at 11:24 am #
