This thread is inspired by the exchange that literally just happened at my house. I love my Darling Husband to death, and his latest derp is so endearing and also really hilarious.
He went out to the store with grandiose plans to buy ingredients to make me a romantic dinner for Valentines Day here at the house tonight, and wouldn’t tell me what he was going to get. He had been gone for a good, oh, hour or so…And suddenly, there I am, standing in the kitchen with sopping wet dish hands when my phone rings. I hurriedly dry them and run to grab my phone and it’s Darling Husband.
Me: Yeah, what’s up?
Him: You’ll never guess what I forgot…
Me: Umm…the food?
Him: No..My wallet
Darling Husband had an interview earlier this afternoon and left his wallet in his dress slacks. OOPS.
Me: Want me to bring it to you?
Him: Yeah if you wouldn’t mind.
Me: Yeah give me a minute to get out of my PJs and get down there. (It was a snow day, so I didn’t bother getting dressed)
So I’m getting dressed and grab my purse and realize: I don’t have a car key. So I call him back.
Me: What car do you have?
Me: You have the only copy of the key for your car, I can’t leave the house.
Him: What do I do with this basket of groceries?
Ahahahahahahahahaha, it was SO CUTE. I told him to get Customer Service to hold them and he just drove back for his wallet and left again. *snicker*
Suave, indeed. XD!!!
What about you? What smooth move did your DH/SO try to pull off that just went totally un-smoothly?

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.

@beetee123: Nice. XD He just got home and he filled a pot with water, put the pasta IN it, and THEN lit the fire underneath to boil the pasta. This is gonna be so yummy.

Derp, according to Urban Dictionary: a phrase used when someone makes a mistake, or says or does something stupid or ridiculous.; To do something foolish, clumsy, or silly.
In this case, he made a silly and adorable mistake.

@MrsWBS: It was really yummy. He made what he called bowtie festival with bowtie pasta, tomatoes, onions, bacon and shrimp in cheesy alfredo sauce. xD It was really yummy. He even got my favorite ice cream. 🙂 If he’d gotten wine it would have been perfect, lol.

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.

Darling Husband 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, Darling Husband 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:
Darling Husband: 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.
Darling Husband: That doesn’t help! (DH wears his hat backwards all the time)
ME: TURN IT AROUND!
Darling Husband: OMG! I forgot it can go the other way!
it’s extra funny because he wasn’t drunk or anything either. Darling Husband 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. Fiance 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?”
Fiance “Uhh…getting my car smogged…”
Me “Right…and who’s car are we driving?”
Fiance “OH SHIT”
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”!

@RunnerBride13: Lol, Darling Husband isn’t scatterbrained but he IS the world’s best procrastinator. “I have not yet begun to procrastinate!” is the tag line I have for him (but not to his face cuz he’d get butthurt. XD)
@wandering_gypsy: Lolol, awww. I am usually the more derpy out of us two, but…yeah, it’s nice to know guys can derp with us. 😀 My Darling Husband tried to go to the beach in jeans, a thick polyester shirt, and woolen socks and closed toed shoes once. As soon as we got there we had to go into a store and buy him appropriate clothes. XD
@taylorkirby: Ahahahaha, aww! Darling Husband used to drive everywhere, but now I have a Prius so he takes my car whenever he can cuz he’s all, “Your car gets better mileage.” I actually think he just likes to see how many MPGs he can get per trip and work on topping his personal best. 😛
Husbands are so cute <3

My Darling Husband 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:
Darling Husband: “Did you have a bad trip? Is something wrong?”
Me: “No no, This is so sweet I wasn’t expecting it”
Darling Husband: “I got you good didn’t I?”
Me: “Yes babe, you sure did”
Darling Husband *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?”
Darling Husband: “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.

Darling Husband 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!
