A quickie




We are in different rooms. I am reading aloud from a Hollyhock catalog...

Me: Ooo, they have meditation classes. You like meditation.

Hubby:

Me: Do you want to "awaken joy"?

Hubby: Who's Joy? And why would I want to wake her up?

Me:

Hubby: I didn't even ask if "awaken" was one word or two.

Me: *pause* HEEEEYYY!

LiLu said...

I disagree. I think with the roundabout way, it's TWICE as bad.

Mac and Cheese said...

Oooooohhhh, now I get it. Took a while.

Alice said...

god, i'm slow. after thinking about this for like a minute, i finally decided the joke must be "a wake in," as in holding a wake for a dead person. and only when i realized that wouldn't work with "to" in front of it did i actually get it. sigh.

I'm on sinus medication - so it took me a minute, too.

Heh, heh, pretty funny!

Mike:

brad: It can always be worse.

LiLu: That's it. Get him in trouble. ;)

Mac and Cheese: He's really not trying to be subtle.

Alice: It's easier to get if you hear it, rather than read it. Somethings don't translate well but, hey, I needed blog material.

Drama Queen: Glad you thought so. :)

Hahaha! That's pretty funny!

Still not getting it...nope, still not...nothing...

I'm with Foggy. Either I'm not getting it, or everything I can think of is just not hitting my funny bone (and I doubt that).

lacochran said...

Awaken... awake in...

Methinks you are over-thinking it.
