Proof I Think Better On Paper

One of Hubbykin's work associates (Okay, that makes it sound like he's in the Mafia, which he is not) made a scathing, underhanded joke at my husband's expense on Monday.

I thought of the perfect retort...this morning.  So I hopped out of the shower and emailed it to him.

There you go, sweetie.  I've got your back.

72 hours later.


  1. Better late than never, right? That happens to me, too! But sometimes with retorts, it's better to have the pause...and then you might not get yourself into trouble as easily!

  2. I always do that. It's so annoying not being able to come up with that perfect comeback when it's needed. Maybe you can use it in your writing. :)
