Ever the Diplomat, He Is.

After his slight (unfortunate) miscalculation Friday morning, the husband's been cautiously minding his Ps and Qs.

At Al's request, I just stepped out and saw this on my side of our garage after I'd heard him out there knocking around for 20 minutes or so:

(Please note The Loving and Innocent Smile.) (A common husbandly defense mechanism.)

"Darling, are you saying I'm a bad driver?" I teased.

Pause. Throat clearing.

"Everyone's depth perception is a little different, honey," was his careful reply.

  1. I'm a sucker for that defense mechanism. He is such a cutie.

  3. I bet that smile is plastered on his face these days.

    Wise man. He apparently learned.

  4. Sounds like something my husband would say and do. :) And that grin. . . too funny!

  5. The smile is a nice touch.If my husband did that, I'd probably have to go out and experiment how fast I need to drive into the garage to make the ball hit the ceiling-its a fun game as long as you remember to hit the brake before hitting the back wall ...

  7. Back in the days when I had a garage, I totally had the tennis ball thing going on. :) Courtesy of my husband. :) Do you think they're trying to tell us something?

  8. Oh, he is good! He does have a great smile - if Peanut inherits that smile you're a goner!

  9. My hubby put one of those up in our garage too, it works. I would hit the steps...a lot...so it helped.

    Such a great smile, he must smile a ton.

  11. Oh, God love him. That makes me smile.

  12. That smile makes me think he knows he may be in trouble with the tennis ball.

    Tread lightly, Al. Tread lightly.

  13. Too funny -- I have the same thing in my garage -- not the big smiling husband, but the tennis ball thingy :-)

  14. Well, can he teach that diplomatic stuff to Hubbers? He could use a little training. Love that huge grin!!

  15. That grin - oh, that grin! :)

  16. There is no way you could ever stay mad at him with that smile!

  17. Hahaha. This made me laugh. My neighbor has one in her garage that has seen them through 40 years of precise parking. What baffles me is that it is implied only us women need them. LOL. Aren't the men ususally the ones driving us around?

  18. Depth perception...snort!
    Love the smile, how can you resist such a cute diplomat :)

  19. Hilarious. My father put up the same ball thing in the garage for my mother. I still laugh when I see it.

  20. I bet that smile has gotten him out of a lot of jams, eh?

  22. Gosh, you know, my husband and I have completely different depth perception. I always think we're going to die when he's driving and he parks his car so close to mine and to the front of the garage I can never get by if I have the baby in the carseat. Thank heavens I'm not still pregnant, I'd have to walk around to the front door instead of coming in the garage!
