Friday Funnies is hosted by Kim at Homesteader's Heart. This is a great time of the week to share your funny...here's mine.

Seven Stages of the Married Cold

Stage 1
Sugar dumpling, I've really been worried about my baby girl. That's a bad sniffle and there's no telling about these things with all the strep that's going around. I'm going to put you in the hospital for a general check-up and a good rest. I know the food's terrible, but I'm going to bring you dinner every night from Rosini's. I've got it all arranged with the floor supervisor.
Stage 2
Listen, darling, I don't like the sound of that cough. I'm going to call Doc Miller to rush over here. Now you go to bed like a good girl just for papa.
Stage 3
Maybe you'd better lie down, honey. Nothing like a little rest when you feel lousy. I'll bring you something. Have we got any canned soup?
Stage 4
Now look, dear, be sensible. After you've fed the kids and gotten the dishes done and the floor mopped, you'd better lie down for a while.
Stage 5
Why don't you take a couple of aspirins?
Stage 6
Why you'd just gargle or something instead of sitting around barking like a seal all evening!
Stage 7
Would you stop coughing on me?!? Are you trying to give me pneumonia?!?

*** Note, we are in stages 5 - 7, with compassion, of course, LOL!!!!!! And I would freak if Steve referred to himself as papa. Ick! Maybe not for everyone, but for me, LOL!

Oh girl that is so funny. I am so glad I started this meme. I love to see what people come up with.
Blessings to you my friend.

howdy, thanks for coming over for a visit. Glad you enjoyed your stay, hope you were able to hear the song, and got a good laugh out of it yourself. This is a cute posting as well. We have been married almost 13 years and would say we are about stage 5 myself!!!

I can relate! Right now BOTH FirstHusband and I have a cold. We go from having absolutely NO sympathy for each other to mutual commiseration.

And I love your "random" list. I remember #5. Back when parents weren't worried something would happen to kids every time they step outside their yard. It provided such wonderful opportunities for the coolest things to happen!

Thanks for the visit and the comment! Beautiful blog template!

Classic and an all time favorite! After about Day 2-3 of a cough, my hubby will start saying..."did you call the doctor?" I know that's his loving way of saying that cough is driving me crazy!
LOL. = )

That's a hoot and a half! Ya know, though, it gets less and less funnny as you progress through the stages. ;}

Thanks for stopping by my place. Years ago, I had a friend who, bless her heart, said 'youse guys'. I reckon she just didn't know any better.

Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^
