This is so true of SHMBO

Today's Garfield

 

I often ask why not use the guide, but she likes channel hopping.

Re: This is so true of SHMBO

Great fan of Garfield - especially with the spider -

But; sHmbo?

Never let Mrs Petlew anywhere near a remote control....

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: This is so true of SHMBO

Yep we went through the SHMBO vs SWMBO ages ago. I have always used the former.
Practically it doesn't make any difference

Every time I read your version something painful comes to mind ...

in the context of "I didn't do as SWMBO instructed so SHMBO"

Fill in the gaps yourself - She Hxxxxx My Bxxxxxxx Off

Re: This is so true of SHMBO

As I have said before I am sticking with SHMBO as that is what I have always used and it IS valid, see link above.
To me the other version feels wrong when typed.

Re: This is so true of SHMBO

Acronym for She Who Must Be Obeyed. Term of endearment for one's wife/girlfriend (or resignation to the nature of your relationship).

The term originates from the H. Rider Haggard novel, "She" (first published 1886). The character Ayesha, known as She-who-must-be-obeyed, the Queen of Death, the White Goddess of the lost city of Kôr who rules her kingdom with terror, She is the very image of the Femme Fatale. To disobey her or to scorn her is to earn & receive instantaneous death.
