…that you’ve been telling him all along?
For example, I like something a little sweet at night. This means I’ll buy a bag of chocolates (usually Russell Stover Sugar Free) and have *1* (maybe 2, if I’m PMSing), but it will take me a week or two to go through a bag. When we started dating, he would see the candy and immediately chow down on it. I’d take a nap and wake up to all my candy gone—him with a sheepish grin, “I was bored”. So I started hiding it behind things in the cabinet. Which made him mad, “I can’t believe you are hiding candy from me!” So I started buying 2 bags, one for me, one for him. Now that we are living together, he’s really good about not eating my candy, but proceeds to plow through his.
So at the beginning of this weekend, he had his bag of candy, half a bag of candy that I bought a week ago, but wasn’t his favorite so he was still working on them, some blue bunny peeps (he was jealous I had bought myself some sugar-free peeps over a week ago, that I’m still eating) and an almost full bag of candy that I bought several weeks ago because I wanted 1-2 pieces and got tired of that inadvertently was ‘hiding’ behind some raisins. That’s 3.5 things of candy. He ate them *all* on Sunday.
At the end of the day, looking rather green, he sheepishly said, “Maybe you should start hiding candy from me so I don’t eat it when I ‘m bored”. Really?!? What a novel idea! Wish I’d thought of that…LOL
What was your SO/FI/DH sudden new idea?

My FI does this all the time. I think it’s a man thing. I always try to remember a quote from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, where the mom tells the daughter, “the man is the head, but the woman is the neck, and she can turn the head any way she wants!” LOL I love it. So, I figure, even if he doesn’t give me credit, my ideas get in that hard head of his after awhile.

Oh yes it’s happened….that “ah my wife was right moment”. It’s happened many times and he always gives me credit. For example: when we first moved in together he wanted to get a house. He said he’d pay for it and I could move into it and help decorate. I told him I wanted us to wait until we were married and then buy a house. Now that we’re in the process of looking for a house he says he’s so happy he waited so that we can do this 100% together. Also when we were living in his apartment, I kept saying I wanted to move somewhere where it could be “ours”. He didn’t understand it and kept saying the apartment was “ours”. However, when we moved into our new two bedroom apartment, as we were moving, he said “you were right….this feels like ours!”.

DH does this all the time. He will get really excited and tell me about something he realized, heard, etc. that he thinks it a great idea. 9 out of 10 times it’s something I have been telling him for weeks. It’s a little bit of a delayed reaction lol

Yeah how about the other night when DH is watching a movie about living as long as possible and they have a study that showed that reducing calories increased lifespan. So DH then says he really needs to lose weight so he can live longer. I have been telling him that for years!

@PitBulLover:My favorite happened at work. I suggested that we do a conference in Los Angeles. My boss listed all the reasons why it was a horrible idea- traffic, travel costs for staff, etc. I listed all the reasons it would be a good idea. But he still thinks it’s a bad idea.
About 2 weeks later, he approaches me with this ‘great idea’ that he thought of the night before—let’s have a conference in Los Angeles. I looked at him dumb struck and parroted back everything he had said to me 2 weeks prior, “What about the traffic?!”. His response, “Why do you have to be so negative and try to shoot down a great idea?” Sigh…I can never win! lol
