What Was That Noise? Have I Turned into a Squeaky Toy?

So I go downstairs one Sunday morning and see that Hubby didn’t make it to church as he usually does. He’s still home, and that means he didn’t get enough sleep and wasn’t feeling good. I was still a bit groggy myself. So I decided we needed a hug. So we’re hugging each other and suddenly there was an electronic “beep beep.” So I kind of jump away, wondering what that could have been. As I told Kosta,” I haven’t turned anything on except you.” The beeps almost sounded like the hug itself had created them.

After checking the kitchen electronic helpers to no avail, I finally ask Hubby if a phone could be saying it needed to be charged. My phone was turned off, and I’ve never heard it make that noise ever. So he checked his.

Sure enough, it had a message it was time to charge it. So he went into the bathroom to plug it in to the charger. He didn’t come out right away and I was hearing some other sounds not consistent with the task he went in for. So I said, “It sounds like you’re doing more than plugging in the phone.”

He replies, “I’m plugging up the toilet.”

So there’s a dose of our gross morning humor at this house. What do you expect from two people not yet fully awake?

He was baking a cake in the toilet while charging. Lol

The amount of electronics in most homes today is quite astonishing. Whenever we visit our two youngest grandchildren there are numerous toys scattered around the place and each one I pick up starts bleeping, squeaking or talking to me!
PS: That last bit was gross!

That's one way to put it. I don't think I'd want it for dessert, though.

I said it was gross. Sometimes gross behavior comes naturally and people can't help it -- especially as they grow older.

Jesus said' Love one another as I have loved you. So instead of going to church you did what Jesus wants all of us to do. I hope you continued after your husband finished with the multi tasking (lol)

I don't remember quite how it turned out. It's hard for me to remember what happened yesterday if i don't write it down. And I don't write everything down.

We sometimes start at the sound indeed ,especially when we don't feel very well.

Ah, the bathroom humor of boys at the age of six seems to reemerge in the Golden Years. LOL

Gross...but very typical family humor :)

Well, if you can't make jokes about things like that at home, where on earth can you? I mean, it's not as if none of us hasn't, um, multitasked like that. Mine usually involves a book, not a telephone unless there is pressing business.

Love the timing for the phone beeping. But he needed to keep the other to himself. lol

Grin. Using the toilet with intent?

I worked out that last time I went to the States I had four bits of electronic gadgetry in my hand luggage - my phone, my laptop, my iPod and my camera. At one point on the flight over I had my laptop plugged in, my iPod plugged into that and my phone charging through the USB port on the screen in the seat in front of me.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:13 PM

I think electronic notifications are often too intrusive.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:14 PM

Got a point there.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:14 PM

It's a central location for recharging, since it has some free outlets.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:15 PM

True. But I still thought it was funny.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:16 PM

He was charging the phone, not talking on it.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:16 PM

I guess he was just answering my question.

BarbRad wrote on June 15, 2015, 5:18 PM

The last time I was in the air, about 15 years ago, they wouldn't even let you use a phone during a flight.

msiduri wrote on June 15, 2015, 9:08 PM

I was referring to his communing with nature with charging the phone, not communing with one's fellow human beings.

lol if we can't have a little humour in our day, we may as well stay in bed. lol

Norwegian Air Shuttle is a sanity-inducing airline. So long as your gadgetry has a flight mode (my laptop, phone and Kindle all do) you can use them. I was editing a friend's book on the laptop on the way over - 45 chapters all about vampires. On the way back I read another friend's published books solidly for 8 hours. (She won't let me edit them - she wants me to read the finished product.)

BarbRad wrote on June 18, 2015, 4:35 AM

I agree. My husband isn't happy if he can't make me laugh in the morning.

Ha ha! What a comeback! And that is SO Serbian to make a joke like that emoticon :smile:

BarbRad wrote on June 22, 2015, 2:10 AM

You've got that right. You should hear some of his dad's sayings. Or maybe you shouldn't.

AliCanary wrote on June 22, 2015, 1:53 PM

Oh, I probably wouldn't be surprised!

Ruby3881 wrote on July 5, 2015, 1:53 PM

LOL! Very appropriate use of "gross," there Barb. And I loved hearing about you and hubby. You sound like you're a very loving and comfortable couple emoticon :smile:

BarbRad wrote on July 6, 2015, 2:43 AM

Once in a while we get on each other's nerves, but we do enjoy having fun together and teasing each other.

Shellyann36 wrote on July 8, 2015, 6:48 PM

That sounds like my house. My hubby would say something similar.

BarbRad wrote on July 12, 2015, 12:59 AM

Maybe men just have a gross sense of humor.

Shellyann36 wrote on July 13, 2015, 2:45 AM

I do believe that a majority of the men do have a gross sense of humor.
