See this man in the blue shirt holding a coffee cup and scratching his head?
Looks real innocent, doesn't he? Oh but do NOT let the cover of THAT particular book fool you!
That man, commonly referred to on this blog as Fisherhubby, has one LONG evil goal in his life - - - to take advantage of my trusting nature and make me look like the fool he suspects that I really am.
I call it my trusting nature - - - he calls it being gullible.
To that end, the end of tricking me, he is relentless in his pursuit. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn't try SOME antic or other. Often there is a recurring "theme" to his antics. Which basically means he tries some variation or other of the SAME trick over and over again ad infinitum.
While it is true that I have fallen for a couple of them over our 36 years together, (those stories are hilarious if I do so say myself but would be the fodder for a post of their own) I do manage to catch and "rebuff" most of them. This does NOT keep him from trying - - - and he always has at least ONE series of "jokes at my expense" on the go.
One of his LATEST involves that little yellow object folded up in his pocket. Do you see it? It is his church bulletin.
Yes that's right folks, even in CHURCH where innocence and total lack of guile are to be expected, he is GUILTY.
Every Sunday he takes a bulletin, glances through it, and then begins trying to tuck in down into my purse for me to carry.
Goofy man - - - I have a bulletin of my OWN with which to deal, I do NOT need his. So I hand it back to him.
At least 10 times each Sunday morning.
I kid you not.
The man is persistent if nothing else.
