Things You Just Might NOT Want To Say

Here are a few things a guy just might not want to do or say to his wife/lady friend (as Jeff likes to call them). I'm not speaking from experience, of course.
"You're so beautiful, you could be a part time model." Apparently this is from a song, but how was I supposed to know? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYcDhG3kNq8
"I love you just as much as I love Steve (the dog), just in different ways. I love you as much as I can love you, and I love Steve as much as I can love Steve."
Saying "you look cute" on a night that your wife is feeling drop dead gorgeous.
When you ask him if something is cute, he just says, "Sure."
"Why don't you make pancakes like your mom?"
"Maybe you could get some recipes from my mom?"
Because you forgot to get anything for your wife for Valentine's Day, you go and find a card she once gave you, cross out her name, and insert your own, and say "Happy Valentine's Day," as if everything is okay. It's really not funny until a few months down the road.
These are just a few. I'm sure I could add more if I thought really hard. Anyone else have some great lines? By the way, I'm not bashing men. I love my husband and in a sense, I even love his verbal mishaps!

Totally feel you on the "you look cute" when you feel drop dead gorgeous thing. One similar might be when your wife is fishing for a compliment and asks if you like her dress...might not want to say "it's cool." Or you might not want to tell your pregnant wife who already feels as big as a barge that when she pulls her shirt down over her butt that it accentuates it and she shouldn't do that. And one more might be that you might not want to continuously give your wife gifts for special occasions that are really for yourself (ie an entire season set of MacGyver dvds or a box set of movies like clear and present danger and the hunt for red october)....just a few suggestions!

This made me laugh!!!!

I can relate to Lora... it's like when your husband (who is a huge Auburn fan and likes to dress in polo) gets you for your birthday a polo shirt, burnt orange with a navy logo. That way now, you know, you have an Auburn shirt too.

Another thing... after dropping hints for MANY months about the Charlie Brown Holiday DVDs you want for Christmas, don't get it for your wife; you know, just to be sure there is a copy in your household.
