Angelisms, Part 9




{Scene: We've recently been battling a cockroach who is attempting to live in our bathroom. We arrive home from work and Angel opens the door.}

Angel: *cheerful yet sinister voice* "Cockroach! We're home!"

.........................................................

{ Scene: 9:15 p.m. on a work night. I'm blogging, Angel is on his computer, we're winding down and about to start getting ready for bed.}

Angel: "Leprosy can be transmitted by nasal droplets. It can also be transmitted from armadillos to humans"
{The only possible context for this is that we'd watched the movie Ben-Hur two weeks previously.}
 
.........................................................

{Scene: Angel is complaining about me to my mom.}

Angel: "We lived in Michigan for almost 4 years! And maybe 3 times in all of that time did Rachel call me and say she didn't cook dinner so I should pick up a pizza or Culver's on the way home. 3 TIMES! We're going to have to have a new rule--in Malaysia, she needs to ask me to pick up dinner on the way home from work at least 10 times a year."

..........................................................

{Scene: We're on a metro in Hong Kong. I'm watching the scenery, Angel is daydreaming.}

Rachel: "Whoa! Did you see that?"
Angel: "What? I didn't see anything."
Rachel: "We just passed this open field where there were a hundred guys all dressed exactly the same and they were practicing martial arts!"
Angel: "Cool story bro."
Rachel: "No! It was real! You have to believe me. They had a leader, and he was standing up on a stage, and showing them what to do!"
Angel: "Oh, suddenly, there's a leader, too? And a stage? I'm sure..."
{You guys believe me don't you? It was like some kind of scene right out of Shao Lin Soccer. A hundred guys in matching uniforms practicing martial arts in the middle of an open field in the Hong Kong countryside. It totally happened, he just wouldn't believe me.}

......................................................

{Scene: My favorite pedicure shop closed for renovations, and I don't own nail polish or nail polish remover and refuse to buy any since we're moving soon, my toenails used to be purple, but I'm cutting them as they grow out and now they are only half-purple}

Angel: "Whoa! It look like you have french tips on your toenails! Purple french tips. That's so...weird!"

...........................................................

{Scene: He's watching Youtube prank videos that involve a remote-controlled spider.}

Angel: "Next time, I'm going to buy a remote-controlled spider from eBay instead of a bear costume."

Does that sound like a good idea to anyone?

  2. This sounds like my house. I have 6 minions (including my husband) that all take turns sounding if they escaped from the twilight zone. Each of these could be the beginning of a great story.
    Stopping by from Monday Madness.

  5. These are funny! The leprosy one reminds me of my husband - sharing random things, but not quite connecting the dots of how he got there in his mind! :)

  15. Hahaha love the random leprosy fact and the cockroach greeting! :D

  16. Ha ha!

    I also used to greet our family of cockroaches when I lived in the south of France in Nice. I'd whap my shoe on the wall and yell, "We're home!" They'd scurry back to their corners. That is one thing about living in a country with winter. No cockroaches.

  18. HAHAHA the things he says cracks me up! You've just gotta love someone who has humor. Love that he talks to the cockroach.. he knows it's there. And those things are damn sneaky, I tell you what.You think you're picking up a piece of bark tracked in by the dog on the floor and oh! Oh geez! It's actually a roach and you almost touched it.

    Also, hey there! I'm a total stranger by now, I know, but college basically drowned me and I'm all graduated and stuff now and ready to get back into this blogging thing. :) Hope you've been so so well!

  27. ROFL! You guys remind me of me and the porkchop aka boyfriend. We had a massive cockroach manifestation in our new home and everytime we found a little dead body we made a little triumph dance with an evil laugh! DAMN cockroaches!
    Today I was explaining to him whole day, how I am going to go and buy nail polishes, and he knows I am craaaazy about nail polishes. I finally went, bought some, wrote to him "I'm doing my naaaaails" and then wrote again "Done, yaay". And he just said "Is life worth living now?"

  28. He is hilarious!!! I love these posts!

  29. The two of you sound like such a fun couple.
    The palmetto bug is common here, which is just a nice word for roach! The lovely people here in the Charleston area have tried to reassure us that they are common and we should not be alarmed.
    I miss Culver's!
    Thanks for linking up to MMBH :)
    XOXO
