A funny...

Last night we were have a national couple over for dinner. I was busy cooking when I realized I needed a can opened. My can opener broke the last time I used it and I have been gone...forgetting to try and replace it.

Hmmm. I frantically sent the King down to the market hoping they would have a hand held opener. My dinner was practically finished except for one can for the sauce. My company was arriving any minute. Ug.

So, being the good husband that he is...off he went.

No luck at the market, but he called a friend who lives close by and ran by there to borrow theirs.

In the meantime, the company called saying they would be late. Thank the Lord for small favors.

The King gets back with the can opener and I reach into the cabinet and hand him the can to open while I'm stirring my sauce so it doesn't burn.

He looks at me and says, "This is the can you want opened?"
Without looking I say, "Yes."
He starts chuckling....uh oh, what does that mean?
I take a peek. Yep. The can has a FLIP TOP.
I don't need the can opener.

No use trying to defend myself. I just laughed with him.
All was well.
And my chicken spaghetti turned out great! My company ate it up! :)

Now THAT is too funny! I have done that, thinking I needed an opener and not. Funny how we are just used to some things.
