    ME: "The good news is that I just made a half gallon mason jar of pickled eggs."

    HER: "If that is the good news I can't imagine what the bad news is."

    ME: <smiling> "We will have to wait least fourteen days before they are ready to eat."

    HER: The stink-eye............

    Women are no fun.
    my wife walks in from grocery shopping with 2 cantaloupes and I say “those melons look nice and the cantaloupes look good too”

    and she rolls her eyes in exhaustion

    When I do something like that the wife will give me “The Look” and say “You are so strange”. I remind her that she married over 42 years ago and is still around so there must be some redeeming quality.

    Tonight she screamed at the dog and I asked what all the fuss was about
    I had made some air fryer mini tacos and she said “the dog licked my “taco thing” !!!

    I just looked at her and she told me to shut up....

    I like the "Good News/Bad News" routine.

    One I read that was particularly funny. I'm paraphrasing here since I don't remember the exact conversation;

    "I have good news, and I have bad news. Which do you want first?"

    "I'll take the bad news first."

    "Your vacation is cancelled, and you have to report for work on Monday."

    "What's the good news?"

    "I have no good news."

    This brings me back to my university days. Northeast WI is famous for spicy pickled eggs, and we had to drive through that region to get from MN to school. One of my housemates loved those spicy eggs, yet he also had a tragic family medical condition...roids.

    I remember being awakened by the sounds of screams one early morning only to find him jumping up and down in a pile of baby powder. Apparently, Picked eggs can be the arch-enemy of March, and it comes in like a lamb, but comes out as a lion.

    She realizes she is stuck with you and can't elope with anyone else.

    My wife used to complain about her headaches quite often. I started looking at her, wiping my hand down my leg below my waist, and tell her, "I have a headache, too!". After many RBF's at me, she stopped telling me she had a headache. I was just making a joke, who knew it would work so well...

    Even though I’m trying to break the habit, I’m still on the “that’s what SHE said” response any time my wife makes a comment about the size of something. It has gotten ripe, but there are still some funny moments.
