Spin on Surviving Madmen in March

A recent, actual conversation involving college basketball, about which my husband feels more passionately than the three S's virtually anything:

Me: "So you must be pretty psyched about the Tournament this year, huh?"
Husband: "YES."
Me: "And if we win all our games, leading up to the Final Four?"
Husband: [quivering] "YES! Very excited."
Me: "And our TV will be only allowed on...."
Husband: "College basketball, baBY!"
Me: "And what if we are IN the Final Four? Where is it this year... in Texas, right?"
Husband: [pause] "Yeah. Right. In Texas North."
Me: "Texas Nor..."
Husband: "Otherwise known as Detroit."
:

So, where's the survival part?--I'm being totally serious here, I finished the last sleeve of Thin Mints while my husband was working late. Then I emailed him to let him know.

Payback is hell.

Nicely done, Thin Mint scarfing is the best revenge.

I so hear you.

I hate March.

We should plan lots of weekend outings in April as revenge (and eat all the junk food.)

Basketball or thin mints? You chose the best! ;)

If only there was a sanctuary for all wives who turn invisible during March madness! Once hubby even begins to dream of the possiblity of "FINALS", I can forget about any chance of catching his attention away from the TV. Hooray for chocolate and blogging!!

I don't much care for B-ball, but I love to bet on the teams!

we are all about the football here. And by we, I actually mean mostly me. March is a free month for us.
If I ate the last thin mint I would probably be assasinated.

Well Miss CDB I see you everywhere, we visit a lot of the same places and you always leave me the nicest comments (thank you about my cat..that broke my heart) so I thought it was about time I brought myself over here and had a look around.

Michigan is not like Texas! In Texas, law abiding citizens get to carry firearms.. in Michigan- only the bad guys!

Oh man, I am SO glad my hubby isn't into college sports. He is already SO obsessed with pro sports that I just wouldn't be able to take it. I might have to divorce him. Seriously.

Oh yeah....hit him where it hurts! Right in the cookies!

Ouch, you lynched the Mints? Nice! Survival of the fittest be damned! You're linked!
