What's the big deal about Young Living

Speaking Wife

After being married for over 25 years, I pretty much know what my husband is trying to tell me, even when he says stuff like this:

 "Will you hand me the thing  over by the  doo-hickey?"

or "Have you seen the deeli-bobber? I left it right on the whatchamacallit, but it's gone."

It never fails that I know which thing  he means and I always know which deeli-bobber he's talking about and right where he left it.

He calls it "speaking wife" because every good wife can interpret when her husband speaks in tongues, right?

Well, sometimes he has to interpret what I say, too. I guess I usually assume he knows what I am talking about, and most of the time I am right.

Take the following video, for example. When I called him from the phone in the Chevy Malibu on our way home from the Dallas World Aquarium, I was referring to his toe NAIL, which he had just seen the doctor about, but that's not what I said. 

He knew, though. He speaks wife.

  1. Oh my, you just described myself and my hubby. He is always starting a conversation half way through the first sentence and I usually know exactly what he is talking about. I often have to translate for others cause he forgets he is talking to someone other then me.

    I wanted to take a sec to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I have not had time to stop and leave a comment but I really enjoy your blog. I even started to attempt to braid my daughters hair after watching your video! Keep up the great blogging. I love your down to earth take on things.

    God bless

  2. I know what you mean. I also can follow my husband’s train of thought when he leaves out some details. But when I listen to him talking to someone else, I wonder if they can follow. lol He leaves out some pretty important details sometimes and I’m watching the other person and they look like “huh?”

  3. Oh gross!! Now I have visions of a nasty half toenail. Why did you have to share that? Ewwwwww.

    Cute glasses.

  4. I love your videos. They are short and to the point and so stinkin’ funny!
