A Couple of Hicks

Let me relate another husband/wife conversation for you. Also, let me set the scene. We were standing at the kitchen counter last night, sorting through mail. Jeremy opens a letter from State Farm kindly requesting that we use them for all of our insurance needs. O.K., go!

Jeremy: Oh, it's State Farm. I was thinking, "Why are you sending me this letter? We already have insurance with you." But we have that other farm one.

Kristen: I know! There are too many with "farm" in their names. It always gives me pause.

Jeremy: Gives you pause?? What?

Kristen: Not "paws." (imitate kitty paws to demonstrate) You know, like it makes me go, "Hmmm...which one is this?" Gives me pause.

Jeremy: You're a Hicks now. We don't say stuff like that. You're gonna have to cut that out.

By that time we were both laughing pretty hard. Or maybe that was just me? He can deliver funny lines pretty straight-faced, but then he eventually get tickled, too. I love that about him. =)


  1. Hahahaha. That's great! Hope all is going well for you two :)

  2. Would it have been acceptable if you would have said paws?

  3. I'm trying to figure out which Matthew commented...Ashby? Whichever one it is, we are doing well. Thanks. =)

    Michael - yes, I get the feeling it would have been more acceptable if it had "given me paws." Ha! ;)

  4. Ha! You guys are hilarious. Wonder how long you'll be in Hicks Training. Good thing he's patient. ;)

  5. Sigh. Can I just come and spend a weekend with you guys. I laughed out loud. And I'm reading this while subbing. At the middle school. Where very few things can make you laugh. Roll your eyes, yes. Laugh, not so much.

  6. Mindy - I think I'll always be in Hicks Training. I do pretty good most of the time, but sometimes I get too uppity for his taste. Hahaha!!!

    Jenny - yes, please! Well, when we get our guest room finished. Working on it now. We'd love to have you guys!! We won't even give you a tour of the local middle school. ;)

  7. I LOVE this!!! That is great! I am so glad you have each other! I think we are always in training!

  8. I love it that you two have so much fun together...sign of a good marriage!
