Bungled Bombshell

  1. What is that lovely fuzzy flower AR? Quite stunning to look at. As for hubby, well…We all make mistakes, no? Just glad your sister is still attached to her mate! Have a great day and thanks for sharing the fuzzy plant 🙂 ❤

  2. I really like the photo. Bungled bombshells keep life interesting. If we still had a land line and I had to take voicemails off for either of us it would be a disaster. I have a hard time with the mobile photo voice mail. The voice to text helps some, but it came come up with some super bungles. I can easily understand how “convention” got turned into “counselor.” Marriage convention is not common, whereas, marriage counseling is. If one is hard of hearing and not paying attention, one would simply default to the more common of the two.

    1. Hubby is not hard of hearing, Timothy. He is so in his head that he honestly doesn’t hear what is being said. I agree with you that bungled bombshells do keep life interesting. My sister and I had such a laugh over this. She knows how my husband, the “absentminded professor”, can be. I have two photos. I’m thinking you like the fuzzy one? That is a clematis or what is left of it. The other one I was looking straight up at what was directly above me. Hope you have a great day!!

      1. That’s why I added not paying attention for the default to what is more common. The tree photo is fun, but, yes, I really like the fuzzy photo.

    1. SOOOOOOOO glad you laughed! I knew you would, Erika, cuz you have a great sense of humor. How many who read this can relate? Or would be honest like you were and say so? Try living with this for 36 years! If I don’t laugh, so help me, I would scream. Even when I say something, it is misinterpreted and I have to take the time to explain and then explain again, no, you are NOT hearing me. THIS is what I am saying NOT what you think I said. Lord help me! 😂😜😂

      1. Oh, I hear you, Amy. Yes, the misinterpretation. Sometimes there is only “listened” in order to think what else could be said but not in order to understand what I said. Very challenging but as you said, a big sense of humor is necessary. At least, I have my daughter who knows the “problem” and then laughs with me when I tell her 😂

      2. Humor is medicine for the soul and food for the heart to keep it light. So many are so busy these days that the attention span is minimal. Overload in so many ways. I’m guilty as charge as well, believe me. LOL

      3. Oh, Amy, me neither. But sometimes you don’t have control over what happens. You can have scheduled your days perfectly but at times, everything is coming together. What can we do? But that’s life and we all have so much understanding for that problem, don’t we… lol!

  3. Whoa – that’s a bungled bombshell for sure! To be fair, I’ve never heard of a marriage convention?? I am always amazed at the mind and it’s shenanigans! It makes up crap all the time. I might be even gearing up for a “prison of the Mind” kind of blog post soon!! I love, love your flower photo – one of my favorites!! Much love to you both!! Donna

    1. Notice my “mind hiccups” in this story, Donna. I still don’t know what the other place is that hubby told me. And then, even though I “knew” my sister would tell me if she really was having marital problems, my mind as if having a life of its own, went on its own journey. Isn’t it funny how the mind works? And then there is the again process …. even weirder things happen with the mind. I’ll be sure to read your post if you decide to write it. I find the mind a fascinating subject. Thank YOU about my Clematis picture, or what is left of a Clematis. I fiddled around with the editing and was very pleased by what I created. Have a great day and much Love to you today!! xo

  4. Men! But I can see how that could happen. He probably heard it right, but by the time he relayed it to you his brain was telling him that “convention” didn’t make any sense and he must have misheard it – surely “counseling” was what she said. I might well have done the same thing. I’m glad my hubby and I have separate cell phones so we aren’t getting each other’s messages.

    BTW, did you ever find out what the __________ meant?

    1. No, CM, I still don’t know what the ______ is. I’ve yet to speak with my sister, hoping to do so today. This message was not on anyone’s phone. This message was left on our house answering machine. We do have our separate cell phones but most of our calls come in our our landline. My “absentminded professor” does this sort of thing to me all the time. Anyways, glad you enjoyed!! Hope you have a great day! Despite the dreariness, I have to go outside to continue closing down my gardens. My aim is to complete the job this week. Crossing fingers that happens. If not, what is IS. xo

  5. Oh, what a magical image! I just love it to bits. Had to laugh about the bungled message. I know my hubby only listens probably to the first half of any sentence I say to him. I think he also makes up the rest. It seems to be a man-of-a-certain-age thing. 😀

    1. So tickled that you got a laugh out of this, Sylvia. You made my day! Thank you! And thank you about my flower picture. It’s amazing what can be created in the editing room. No worries about your hubby …. I’m in the same boat. I have to push the “repeat” button often when I hear “What?” from hubby. He’s so busy thinking that he doesn’t hear. And yeah, the age thing. We won’t go there. LOL xo

    1. Dan, hubby is always either thinking about something or in a hurry to do something. Understandably why the bungled message. I’m not sure either what a marriage convention is to be frank, and I will ask my sis when I talk to her. We’ve yet to connect. Hopefully today we will. And thank you about my last picture. You put a huge smile on my face!

  6. Amazing photos, dear Amy 😀
    I can only try to imagine your expression, when your Hubby said so to you 😀 😀 😀
    So funny…
    While all of us are living in our own little bubble, some of us are more awake to the world around us, than others. Those misinterpreting are really common and so very annoying.
    I must admit, that I loose the respect for people, if I use my time to explain something in an easy to understand way and they don’t listen.
    Much love to you ❤

    1. Thank you, Irene, for contributing your thoughts to this subject of people not listening. This in my opinion, has become an epidemic proportional problem. I do admit I am guilty of the same thing especially when I am problem solving about our cats in my head. I hope you’ve had a few past good days. I’ve been very busy focused on getting my gardens closed up. Much Love to you! xo

      1. VERY busy today, Irene, out in my gardens. Did not get as much done as I would have liked to, but I’m not stressing over it. I’m getting there. Now however, I will be forced to work in chilly weather, something that is far from easy for me. Dress warm, that’s the ticket! (smile)

  7. That was most certainly a ‘classic’ Amy, I almost wet myself from laughing. Mind you, I realise it so shocked you to your inner core 😀
    And hubby has my total sympathy, I too have ‘interpreted’ many things in my time. I was trying to do two things at once and our ‘male singular’ focus will defeat that every time 😀
    Maybe those types of ‘messages’ have great purpose, shocks us out of our hohum reverie in life and brings that ‘caring’ to the surface. Makes us feel again 😀

    1. I laughed SO hard as I read your “reaction” to this post, Mark. FYI …. Hubby had just about the same reaction when he read this post as he kept saying, “My wife with such an amazing sense of humor!” You men do have a singular focus while we women tend to be able to juggle more then just with one ball. Hence, the tug of war between the sexes at times. (smile) All involved had huge belly laughs so much was accomplished with this amusing tale. Feeling alive is such a gift!! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

  8. That was interesting. We can lose our focus while reading too. Once in a while, I find myself reading what I want to instead of what is actually written. I can relate to this misinterpretation. The second photo is mesmerizing, Amy.

    1. Many people can relate to this bungle, myself included. It’s quite common. Hope you did have a laugh, though. I wrote it so you would. My husband when he read it just about wet his pants, laughing so hard. LOL And yes, that Clematis is amazing after I edited her. Thank you for the compliment. xo
