Subtlety Is SO Not His Middle Name

Recently, Ed and I were sitting at a table talking to another couple when the conversation led to a topic that I just didn't want to discuss with them.

Ed usually doesn't catch it when I give him "the look" that means STOP TALKING ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW, so I kick him under the table to make him shut up.

What does he do?

He looks at me and says, "Why are you kicking me???

Oh. My. God. He is so lucky I didn't kick him IN THE HEAD after that.

I of course, played it off with an Oscar worthy performance, saving face and moving on with grace. Since then, I have been training Ed in the precision and delicacy needed to maintain the secret sign language of couples.

I have my work cut out for me.

Next time, he starts talking about something, don't kick him.

He's doing it on purpose...kicking him will only provoke him further.

Trust me..I do this.

Instead, if he's talking inappropriately, just join in with something like:

"Ed has crooked penis."

He'll stop. The conversation will turn.

This is how my wife does it.

...I'm still trying to figure out how she knows Ed.

Laughing already at your post, but then the comment above? Oh dear. Too much fun for a Thursday night (which it is as I'm reading this) ;)
