My SO almost never derps. He’s practically perfect. I always derp, but I do remember one of his  hilarious derp moments from a few years ago. We went out to dinner and then to the mall to rent a tux for some event. He kept telling the store clerk that he wanted his shirt to have pilafs and the clerk and I were just looking at each other like WTF. It turns out that he wanted a pleated shirt, but he was confused because he had rice pilaf for dinner.

Haha oh my husband does that kind of thing ALL the time. I love him, but he’s scatterbrained. We went to get driver’s licences because we recently moved out-of-state, and he didn’t have the materials he needed. They told him to get 2 things, so he went home, came back, and forgot one of them. So he had to go allllll the way back home to get the other item too. This is pretty typical. Tongue Out

DH has had a few derp moments, though I have many more than he does, but one of my favorites of his was when we were tubing down the river, DH had bought a new pair of cheap sunglasses, cheap flip flops and brought an old hat for the trip. I’m not sure how it happened but he went under and lost his glasses pretty early in the ride and got all sad about it. The conversation went a little like this:

DH: OH MAN!! I lost my glasses, now the sun is going to be in my eyes the whole time!

ME: You have your hat still.

DH: That doesn’t help! (DH wears his hat backwards all the time)


DH: OMG! I forgot it can go the other way!


it’s extra funny because he wasn’t drunk or anything either.  DH doesn’t have too many derp moments, so I get a really good laugh out of it when he does.

Oh man, we both had a derp moment a couple years back. FI needed to get his car smogged so we decided to drive to the smogging station on our day off. When we were about a block away, I realized something:

Me “Hey babe…what are we doing right now?”

FI “Uhh…getting my car smogged…”

Me “Right…and who’s car are we driving?”

FI “Yours”

Me “….”



Haha. We both felt so stupid! I ALWAYS drive EVERYWHERE so neither of us even thought anything of it! It would have been more embarassing if we had gotten to the counter and been like “Yeah we need such and such car smogged….that isn’t here”!

My DH was really trying to be sweet. He picked me up from work (I work out of town and had been gone for six days) he hands be flowers, a bottle of wine and gives me a huge hug and says:

DH”happy Anniversary!!”

Me “confused*

DH: “Did you have a bad trip? Is something wrong?”

Me: “No no, This is so sweet I wasn’t expecting it”

DH: “I got you good didn’t I?”

Me: “Yes babe, you sure did”

DH *beaming and proud*

Me: “It’s just that well, it’s September, we got married in October, and although you know I love wine…. I’m pregnant remember?”

DH: “Shit”

To be fair our dating anniversary was in September, but that is NOT what he was going for. I was also only about six weeks pregnant, it has not really hit him yet. It was still sweet, and halarious.

When he was so excited about getting married and absorbed in the moment that he completely flubbed his “repeat after me” vows.

“….wait, what?”

DH just left for Vegas yesterday (yes on Vday, work related trip).  He drove his car up, parked, got his luggage out, gave me some hugs and kisses, and toddled off on his way.  

I get in the car, look around, turn it on, look down, see his phone… SEE HIS PHONE???!!! OH NO!!  

Cue me frantically looking around for him and thankfully he was still outside the airport entrances. 

I screamed his name across 4 lanes of traffic and drop-off-ees….it was classic. And then waved his phone around, while also yelling “you forgot your PHONE!!!”  He was SO sheepish when he came over to retrieve it.  I was just thankful I noticed and he was not already IN the airport.  PHEW.  

It was cute because normally he follows a total routine when I drop him off at the airport, but didn’t this time and it threw him off. Still can’t believe he almost left his phone behind!
