Lunch Money Woes: Husband Gets Frogged

Today I was "frogged."

Frogged as in when someone punches your muscles in the upper arm near your shoulder, and it causes that weird feeling.

The Mrs. was the person who frogged me.

And she did it with intent.


I am not sure, but let me relive the events leading up to my unexpected bonk...


The Mrs. calls me on the cell phone and asks if I have any money in my wallet.

I tell her that I have $32.

She asks if I can drop by her office around 11 am, and give her some cash that she needs for a surprise lunch meeting.

Being the responsible husband, I am there at 10:50 am with an open wallet.

I enter the building, climb the stairs, and approach her chair in the upstairs window office.

I hold cash in my hand, and say in my best Southern twang accent:

Here's $2 ma'am. Now, you go buy yourself something real pretty, ok?

I then received the solid round-house punch causing the frogger.

After reflecting, I am at a loss to explain it.

Anyone help me out where I went wrong?


Have a good weekend everyone.

It's okay Slam... your wife obviously loves you still since there would have been lower and easier "targets" if she was REALLY ticked off :D

I'd bust out laughing, but I have a crazy sense of humor. I'm interested to get to the bottom of this.

Some things are just funnier in print than in person, that's all. For example, you've given me a grin, but if my husband tried it, he might well get the same.

Clarissa Draper said...

You're funny! I would have frogged you too.

Not a single clue. Several.. but not just one. ;)

YOu didnl;t do a single thing was all just "misinterpreted" by the missus.
(that can happen, especially when the relationship of money crosses sexes...there is an "exchange rate" of sorts.
Like going from the USA to Canada...or better yet...MEXICO.

If you have $32 (and tell them that), they want "what you can afford" which = $32.
So you just say:
"I can give you a ten-spot".
(that leaves you bargaining power)

And the whole frogging thing to me would seem to require a like

Stay asfe (and frog-free) out there.

Really, you don't know? (Deep sigh.)

A "frogger"! Never knew it was called that!

I won't try to speculate on what you did wrong, but I'm sure impressed with your wife's ability to put you in your place! :-)

I wouldn't touch that one with a 10-foot pole!

Although I've never heard hauling off and punching someone called "frogging"

LOL funnies part of the whole post for me was "And she did it with intent."

Spoken like a true LEO. ;o)

I am not too sure why you got walloped but I'm sure probably, somewhere along the line you got off scot free when you deserved one... no? Probably best to assume yes. LOL!

Momma Fargo said...

Well deserved! LOL

Jenny said...

OMG! I think you and my husband should never, ever, ever talk under any circumstances!

Laughing quite hard here.

I love that there's two 'Mr. Generous's' in the universe.

Mine usually pretends (it can't possibly be real) to have major sticker shock.
