Dear gracious this question is a favorite around here lately. And if you answered by telling me the actual time... FAIL! I didn't ask WHAT time it is, just if you knew what time it was yourself. Um, yes, it is indeed just that annoying in person. According to my hubby I often give much more information than he asked for in his question. Newsflash, it's called CONVERSATION! I realize you are male, but you've been known to actually talk at length about various topics on occasion, so I know you are familiar with the concept. Yes, hubby knows it pisses me off when he responds with the aforementioned question, he does it because he likes to push my buttons.

Know what I like? When I can use someone else's smartassedness (hey, it's my blog, my words, eat that spell check!) against them. Sadly I can't even remember the original question but I used the old "Do you know what time it is" on hubby last night and it was fun.


Wanna know what's even more fun? Using it on my daughter. Seriously, the kid doesn't just have buttons to push, she has one big fat EASY button. I know, wonderful parenting skills at use there. But sometimes she just needs a bit of what she dishes out daily thrown right back at her.



Yeah, that's all I've got, not even a good wrap up. Sadly, this is how most of my ideas for blog posts are lately. Not really enough for a full post, but more than 140 characters for twitter and facebook updates.

smartassedness is totally a word. you pronounce the "ed" as in blessed. well, actually blessed can go either way, as in 'blest' or 'bles-ed'. whatev.

whatev is also a word, just saying.

I actually have a real easy button like the one in the picture. I use it at school and the kids LOVE it!

But that wasn't the point of your post, sorry.

It is fun to push people's buttons sometimes.

I feel like our husbands might be related. Everytime mine asks me a question & my answer is more than 10 words long, he says "So what's the bottom line - I don't need all the details". Ironically, if I don't tell him something & he finds out about it from another source, he always asks, "why didn't YOU tell me that?". Men....what is up with that...
