While creating Husbands, God promised Women that good and ideal Husbands would be found in all corners of the world. And then he made the earth round.

News Flash: There’s been a recent surge of husbands being kenneled in the proverbial doghouse. Perhaps it is the darkening skies, and the earlier nights, that are contributing to this problem. Or it could be the recent election results which are spurring heated debates in (no wait, that’s a different news item). Or maybe football season is the culprit. Who knows? The unfortunate fact is that many husbands, good men all of them, here and all over the world are routinely sent to the doghouse. What is most disturbing is that they often don’t know why they are in the doghouse. The only thing they are sure of is the knowledge of who put them in the doghouse. Their wives. Even sadder is the fact that they don’t always know if they are in the doghouse or not. One husband I spoke with said he thought he was out of the doghouse because his wife was speaking to him again. However, her clipped tone and civil tongue belied the truth. He was still in the doghouse. But don’t despair. Men are also guaranteed a ticket out of the doghouse for good behavior. The shape of that ticket and form of that release varies from household to household, but rest assured it will probably be impractical and beautiful. After all, husbands are really heroes. And heroes know how to fix anything: even a heroine’s broken heart. Once they’ve learned how to do that, they’ve learned how to get out of the doghouse for the rest of their lives.

  1. I don't have a husband but I do have two dogs who are in the doghouse a lot. Why don't they listen when I scream and yell at them to stop chewing my kitchen towels?

    LOL! That is so funny. We love our pets but they can be super destructive.:-)

  3. Hilarious. And of course, we can't tell them how to get out. Then it wouldn't be their idea. Where's the romance in that? 😉

    Haha Gwen–well said. But every hero learns and/or can be trained. Mine actually pre-worked his ticket out of the doghouse last night by doing all this cleaning for me while I was out shopping. All this so I'd leave him alone for the Cowboys game. 😀

    Love it! And what perfect timing. Birthday coming up for me and my dear hubby tells me he has the best gift this year. He should have stopped there. And I quote,"I saw it laying around and instead of throwing it in the trash, I thought you'd like it so I'd give it to you for your birthday." DOGHOUSE Big TIME! Thanks for the the laugh! I sure needed it!! 🙂

  6. Christine Says:

    Melissa, I am so sorry about your bday gift, but I just can't stop laughing. My goodness! When will they learn? One year I received workout clothes for Christmas. And to top it off: they were too small! I was not amused. I actually do love getting kitchen and cooking stuff because I love to cook & entertain. I wonder how your husband will get out of the Doghouse?:-)
