Oh there has been many… English is not his first language (kind of, he learned it later as a child in preschool type age). His parents are Asian and still have dry strong accents. So the English that he picked up from them growing up wasn’t the best… Sometimes he doesn’t know how to spell words or has never heard them before. 

We were texting a few years ago and he was asking me how to spell “pigeon”. Except he butchered it so bad the first few times he texted that I had NO idea what he was trying to spell. I wish I could remember how he did it… I think there was a Y and a J and some other letters that did not belong. 

Anyway eventually he said “you know, the bird”. Mind was blown! I never would have guessed what he was going for until he said that haha.

We were watching Glee, and there’s an episode where a girl says she has “self-diagnosed Asperger’s.”  (She uses this as an excuse to be a bitch.)

Anyway, we were watching, and Darling Husband says “I would never eat those.”

I had no idea what he was talking about, so I just said “Huh?”

He was insistent.  “Ass burgers.  That sounds disgusting, why does she keep saying that?”

I laughed so hard I cried.  He was totally serious.

oh man, i have a lot. my husband is very smart but very focused on what he cares about/likes (finance for work, and sports/music outside of work). He wasn’t a very good student in school and never paid attention in classes he didn’t like… like science or geography or history. so he will often say things that just make my jaw drop. So, example… last night we were watching doctor who for the first time. And he said something about going a couple thousand years in the future. And then this happened: 

him: wow thats far. I mean the earth is only like a couple thousand years old anyways right.

me: ….. what? 

him: well i mean like its 2012 so…

me: you do know that the world did not come into existence at year 0 right? I mean… they did teach you that in school?

him: I don’t know? I don’t think so?? I mean not year 0 obviously. but like… year 1 or something? 


After a few minutes of pulling him through it and getting him to think he did remember that whole evolution/dinosaurs/year 0 is the birth of christ thing. But like that just isn’t something he ever thinks about at all so his first thought on the world was that it had been around about 2,00 years. lol!

LOL these are priceless. Love it.


My poor Fiance had me crying the other day. I was cooking breakfast and frying up some eggs and bits of the frying pan were coming loose (black specs) and he said, “That’s not supposed to happen, aren’t they made with TAFFETA?!?!” He meant Tefflon hahahahaha. I couldn’t breathe. He then confessed that he didn’t even know what Taffeta was.

Oh gosh…so many things…I told him I wanted to strip and wash the linens one day and he gave me a funny look and said “why are you getting naked and what are linens?!” I had to explain that linens are the bedsheets and he shook his head and told me to stop using “girly words” to describe things to him lol

@beccab107:  I’m not from America so maybe I’m missing something, but why is this an odd question?

@Everdeen:  I’ve heard that question a lot, too. Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday in November. But a lot of people (Americans) I meet have no clue when their own holidays are.
