Just when You THINK you know someone

One of the posts that I wrote on this blog was Hubby's lack of love for comedies. (see "25 Random things about our family) He NEVER thinks they're funny and in the 18 years of our marriage, I can count on one hand the times he has has laughed at one. When he laughs at a comedy, it's usually a little chuckle that lasts for a nano second.

One of my all time favorite comedy series is "Friends." Hubby's been watching "Friends" reruns with me for the past three days and he LAUGHS at them! And he laughs the same time that I do. What is going on? He laughs long and he laughs hard for a really long time. I've been watching "Friends" for years and NOW he finds them funny? It's become more amusing for me to watch him laugh than watching the program.

This morning before he went to work, he was singing the song "Smelly Cat" which was sung by one of the characters from "Friends". He looked at me and said, "I really like that song." Here are the lyrics:

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
It's not your fault

They won't take you to the vet
You're obviously not their favorite pet
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault

You may not be a bed of roses
You're not friend to those with noses
I'll miss you before we're done
Or the world will smell as one

Now I can't get the dumb song out of my head and I'm wondering if someone has taken over my husband's body.

Well, Smelley Cat is pretty funny -- now I'm going to have that song stuck in my head all day! Perhaps your hubby was taken over by alien beings who actually have a sense of humor : )

See there is hope for all those action movie/sports obsessed husbands out there!! I always laugh when Phoebe sings that song. Her facial expressions as she sings crack me up:) Now I want to watch some old Friends shows too!

I loved Smelly Cat! My hubby is the same way about TV shows...he does laugh at movies though. But he never did find Seinfeld, Frasier or Friends funny. It drives me can you not laugh at that stuff!

Jenners- I think you're right, Hubby's body has been taken over by an alien with a sense of humor! :0) p.s. He just watched Friends on his own!

sept mom- Yes, hope does exists for our sports obsessed hubbies!

nikkic- I find all those shows funny! Don't know why it took Hubby so long to laugh at "Friends." Better late than never!
