Right in the Pickle!


I had a post ready to go for Throat Punch Thursday and then my ears were attacked by the sounds of popcorn crunching.

Do I need to point out that it was Brian?


I cannot stand the sound of crunching, slurping, or feasting down of any type.

Dinner time is a different story, we are in the kitchen, an environment made for eating. I am anticipating the chewing of food in a messy, unattractive fashion.

In the bedroom?


Tonight the selection was not only popcorn but pickles and no, he’s not pregnant.

My blood pressure started rising as soon as I noticed the pickle. The crunching matched with the crushing of the popcorn sent me into a Throat Punching frenzy.

I reached under my pillow for my spare and hit him with the first one, square in the popcorn bag. Pieces of popcorn, and possibly teeth, flew everywhere.


My second one, which I had to run to my purse for, nailed him in the pickle hand. The slippery pickle, half done, flew through the air followed by his loud protests.

And then I noticed the straw that broke the ninja’s back.

A bag of cookies.

I jumped up on the bed, posing in my finest Chuck Norris round house stance and prepared my kick. Glaring in his eyes I dared him to take a bite.

Just one.

Chuck Norris would be proud.

And the cookies?

Were delicious!

      He really should know by now but I think he turns his ears off when I talk.
      I’m actually sure that’s how our relationship survives

    The sound doesn’t bother me, but food in the BED? That’s awful.

    And who pairs popcorn, pickles and cookies together? Sounds like he’s pregnant to me.

    Is he a glutton for punishment? Pardon the pun. Why do guys eat in bed? I hate that! You know what sound annoys me? People who smack their gum. Drives me INSANE.

      I’m not as bothered by gum.. maybe because it’s the crunching that bothers me.
      Men do enjoy eating in the bed… gross

      If I think about it too much during dinner I get annoyed. I have to try to ignore it.
      So hard!!

    I could’ve dealt with the popcorn. The pickles definitely would’ve put me over the edge. Btw…thanks for putting our VlogTalk button in your sidebar!

      The smell of the popcorn bothered me more than the sound… that greasy stench in the bed was toooo much!

      I don’t understand why the mouth cannot hold all of the liquids?
      What is going on inside there?
      It was create to house the teeth, the tongue and then food.
