Chrisisms—Part 3

As some of you know I have started documenting my husband’s witty comments here.  I figured it was about time to add to the ever growing and entertaining list.   If you missed the other two posts you might want to check them out at the following posts:  Spinning in Our Teacups and Back by Popular Demand .  I will be right here when you get back!

Just to be clear—Chris is an engineer by training and most folks think that engineers are boring and dull.  Not this guy!!  No way no how!!!  He defies the stereotypical engineer as the following comments and observations will prove.

1. One day I forgot to put clean towels out on the racks after I had put the dirty ones in the wash.  He yelled from the bathroom (dripping wet) “Service at this hotel is really going downhill!”   I suspect that might be more of a commentary on his travel prone lifestyle right now.

2. “I don’t think I could ever run for office.  I couldn’t be nice long enough.”  I think this might actually be true…..

3. “The longer you live the more crap you have to remember.”

4. “I am in my bunker waiting for the radiation to decay.”  (Don’t even ask how that came up in a conversation!)

5. “We have the reverse snowbird effect in Mason City–they all come back.”

6. “The large intestine is very large.”  (I never said that they were all profound. And once again–no comment as to how this came up in conversation.  Trust me, you don’t want to know)

7. He told me that I am a reverse cougar because I love old men.  It’s true.

8. When seeing a man with a very mismatched shirt and tie combo—“that looks like a dog’s breakfast”.

9.  “The difference between Iowa and Ohio is a couple letters.”

10.  “HD is not always a good thing—especially when it is an ugly person.”


Don’t forget that Comments for a Cause this month goes to help raise money to rebuild Ada First UMC in Ada, Ohio after a fire destroyed their beautiful building.   Any comment on any post this month counts!!!  Thank you!



  1. OMG–I love Chris! These are hysterical. When I was in Nashville a couple of weeks ago my cousin said of his wife, whom he married more than 30 years ago and is 6 years his senior, “Jeanne? She invented cougar.”
    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Chris drives a train??? All the way to China??? How can that be dull and boring??? lol

  3. Ha ha ha… love the “hotel service” one. We live with the snow birds year in year out… glad you see the other side of the coin. It’s not always fun. 🙂

  4. Becky Miracle says:

    My favorites were 9 and 10 ! My oldest son has this talent as well. Maybe I should start writing his down. You just can’t help, but laugh…even on some you shouldn’t! LOL

    • you should definitely start writing them down. Chris said he needs to cheer his up a bit after reading them today—said they made him sound grumpy! 🙂

  5. Helen Brown says:

    Chris is getting about as good as Dr. Phil who really has some good ones. I don’t even want to know what he says about mother-in-laws! Ha Ha.

  6. That man IS a trip! 🙂

  7. Oh, I love these! And I have to completely agree with him on the HD TV thing.

  8. Chris cracks me up! I love him… I can’t even pick which is my favorite chrisism of the post 🙂

  9. Isn’t it amazing what comes out of the mouths of our loved ones sometimes?

  10. Jen Pace says:

    he sounds pretty funny! i think if i posted my significant other’s one-liners taken out of context he’d sound like a jerk! lol
