A … what was that again?

He had just returned home, after a four day meeting at a midwestern location known to some as That State Up North …

She: “I suppose you’d like some lunch.”

He: “That would be good.”

She: “I could make you a hamburger.”

He: “No thanks.”

She: “No?”

He: “It would look funny at work. Smell funny too. What the hell happened to you? That’s assuming you didn’t make me a good hamburger. Then I wouldn’t get to work at all.”

She: “Are you aware …”

He: “You will not slap a price tag on me and haul me off to the thrift shop!”

She: “Are you alert?

He: “Not that I’m aware …”

She: “I missed you.”


  1. In case you all are thinking that her, “I missed you …” was too mushy, she said it right after throwing a right cross. He ducked. She rebounded with a choke hold and they stood in the kitchen giggling like teenagers. She is very, very glad He is home.

  2. I’m glad Amoeba is not a hamburger. He *would* look funny at work (unless of course, you simply changed his native city to make him Hamburger, but then he might *sound* funny at work…)

    1. OK, NOW I get it! 🙂 I read it the first time when there were no comments and left puzzled, deciding to come back later. I would probably be puzzled quite a bit if I came to visit — I’m not very quick on the draw.

  3. Like most children I know, my sister and i used to make fun of the Oscar Meyer song when we were around 8ish… I remember the version I made up went something like…

    Oh I’d hate to be an Oscar Meyer Weiner
    Yes, that is what I’d truly hate to be
    Because everyone hates oscar meyer weiners
    Except the Oscar Meyer Weiner company…

    Yes, we were very mature children :p We didn’t actually have anything against hot dogs, we loved them… Lol!

    1. Teresa — we used to make up our own versions of the song, too, but I don’t remember any of them. Yours is wonderful!

  4. You both do have the sweetest, funniest, sunniest relationship. Next time you can offer to make him a “cheesey” burger.

  5. Too fun!

    I always loved the Oscar Mayer song. I never heard the opposing verse, though!

    The other Oscar Mayer ad I loved was the little boy sitting on the dock and singing. . .

    My bologna has a first name
    It’s O-S-C-A-R
    My bologna has a second name
    It’s M-A-Y-E-R
    Oh, I’d love to eat it every day
    And if you ask me why, I’ll say
    ‘Cause Oscar Mayer has a way
    With B-O-L-O-G-N-A

    Hmmm, I’m thinking of a potential Flashback Friday theme!

    1. Linda! LOL! What was you’re favorite commercial when you were a kid? What commercial did you absolutely hate? And I used to sing the Oscar Mayer Bologna song ion my classroom in Vegas because I had a kid named Oscar. We had a really cute, fun interaction going and he didn’t mind.

    2. Since you took me back, to the time when I learned the Oscar Mayer song, I must now look at The Rocky and Bulllwinkle Show on my Roku…
