The Random Writings of Rachel: Angelisms, Part 11

Angelisms, Part 11



Angel's been wanting to go tandem biking ever since our honeymoon. Five years later, we finally did it!
......................................................................

Scene: Angel is sitting down with a pen to help Mom and Dad finish writing and sending out their Christmas cards.

Angel: "So, I can just write anything I want to on the inside, right?"

*Mom and Dad look at Angel, trying to judge his intentions.*

Dad: "Uh, no."

{After 5 years, they know that Angel should never be given permission to "just write anything."}

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

Scene: Preschool time with the little girls, and they are coloring their daily dot-to-dot worksheets. Angel sits down at the table.

Angel: "Hey, did I ever tell you about the time my mom spanked me with a shoe?"

Proceeds to tell about 10 stories of himself being a naughty child and getting spanked for his actions. After each story, the girls excited prompted him to continue to the next one, saying, "And then? And then?"

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



Scene: Two days after filming our "Talent Competition" video.

Angel: "I finally figured out why I'm so sore! It's because you guys made me do a bunch of push-ups for that video! I was wondering the whole day yesterday..."

{Our initial plan called for him walking on his hands. He's pretty good at walking on his hands, but he couldn't walk on his hands long enough for the video, unfortunately, so we ended up with push-ups, which were much easier to do for a long period of time.}

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

Scene: I'm working on morning housework while Angel is at market, buying groceries, or so I think, when the phone rings. I answer. It's Angel.

Angel: "Hey...could you bring my wallet downstairs?"
Rachel: "How far did you get before you realized you forgot it?"
Angel: "I had already parked and was walking in to the market..."

{This wouldn't be so funny if it were the first time, but this is the third time since September that Angel has forgotten his wallet while going on errands or going to work.}

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

Scene: We just woke up.

Angel: "I had a dream last night that someone ate the half of a lemon that's in the fridge and I was so angry!"
Rachel: "Well, that's realistic."

{He really cares about his lemons.}

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

Scene: On vacation, Sarah is playing 'psychiatrist' and wants to psychoanalyze Angel.

Sarah: "Angel, what is your biggest fear?"
Angel: "Steven Spielberg."
Sarah: "Who's that?"
Angel: "A movie director."
Sarah: "Oh, okay. What else?"
Angel: "Aluminum foil."

 {I think she's found the perfect patient to start her practice with.}

  3. LOL! the lemon dream is hilarious! I am very serious about my lemons too! I take a piece of lemon with me to work every day to put in my water. So at the beginning of every week, I cut my lemon in 5 pieces. But if one disappears, it's a big problem hahaha

  4. I'm surprised they didn't try to spank him with a shoe themselves. I feel like that's what I would have done! haha

  5. Forgetting your wallet is the WORST feeling ever, especially if you're already at your destination. Though that must be quite inconvenient for you after multiple times : ) I'm sure you're not as sympathetic anymore ha.

  6. HAHAHA, I love that he sat down with the kiddos to discuss the time he got spanked with a show :) Love the bike photos!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Hahahaha! I LOVE when brides post "husbandisms." I have a running list in my phone of cuh-razy things that Pai says but he has explicitly told me I am not allowed to post them until we are married. Some of them, though, are far too crazy/inappropriate out of context for anyone to think we are a "normal" couple. Angel is afraid of aluminum? That is interesting and hilarious!!

  10. Glad you got to finally realize his dream of tandem biking. I totally feel him on the lemon as well. Nobody needs to touch my lemons. :)

  12. HAHAH I love the lemon one. He gets really angry about half eaten lemons, huh? I'll be sure to never steal from his lemon garden if he gets one.

  15. Your husband has got to be the most hilarious, random dude I've ever read about. He sounds vivacious, girl! I love when you post these little glimpses into "the small stuff." Makes me laugh and smile and feel like I'm standing there with you guys (or should I say, biking with you guys....). :)

  17. Oh, Rachel, I have to tell you that this made me laugh so hard. Your guy reminds me so much of my own hubby. Being married to a man who always can make you laugh is such a pleasure isn't it? I popped over to your blog after reading the comment you left on my post, and I am so glad to meet you via online! Looking forward to future posts. :-)

  21. Haha! I wouldn't trust Cass to write anything he wants in cards either. He has to give me a verbal first draft before he puts pen to paper.
