In search of marital equality

I blame it on my math minor.  But the fact is, in my day job, I’m a person that lives by numbers, formulas, and stone cold logic.

I like it when things add up.  Life makes sense that way.

When I come home, though?  Sometimes, that’s a different story altogether.  As much as I love my husband, I have to confess:  my marriage sometimes contains inequalities that just do not make sense to me.

To illustrate my point, let’s start with an equation that does balance, shall we?

In and of itself, this isn’t a biggie.  I get it.  Let’s be honest, here.  Taco Bell does a number on me, too.

So, it’s no wonder that this would be the next logical step in the sequence:

Again, I get this.  It’s all crystal clear up to this point.

But here’s where things don’t add up:

I swear, I am not exaggerating.  It’s got to be at least three rolls, if not more.  Really, I have a hard time understanding how one person can kill so many trees in one sitting.

And, naturally, that means this is also true:

But the greatest inequity of all might be this:

I’ll give you one guess how I feel about that:

Suffice to say, after almost 13 years of marriage, there are certain equations that just don’t add up for me.

All I can admit is, it’s a really good thing this is true:

Note: I had full permission from my husband to publish this post.  What can I say.  We love potty humor in our house.

  1. Normally, I really don’t like potty humor. But this? This cracked me up! A little too close to home, perhaps 🙂

  2. Do I have your husband’s permission to use this post to teach my son math with graphics? It’s the only way he absorbs knowledge – unlike Taco Bell.

  3. 😀 Ugh, no truer words!

    PS – Thanks again for the clothes; he’s already sporting the 9 month pants and shirts!

  4. Very informative. Thank you. But I’m still boggled by a math major who can blog… Oh, and I banned hubby from Taco Bell after he broke his second toilet. Sigh.
