If you’re new here, you may be wondering what SMHS means. It’s an acronym. Millennials love acronyms. If millennials could skip saying actual words all together and only speak in acronyms, they would. Truthfully, although I am technically a millenial, I more closely identify with the micro-generation of millennials called “xennials”, which is often categorized as those born 1977-1985. I might also dub this group: The Number Munchers Generation, The Jagged Little Pill Generation, or The Zach Morris Generation. Acronyms, IMO, really started with AOL instant messenger. This is where the OG of acronyms really began. You know, “LOL”, “BRB”, “BTW” and my personal favorite, “WTF”. So, in the spirit of embracing my inner-millennial, I present to you the latest acronym: SMHS (sh*t my husband says). While this is part 4 of the series, you can read part 1, part 2 and part 3 if you wish. Without further ado, SMHS: Part 4.
While patiently explaining to my husband what an Instagram story is, his eyes glaze over and it becomes quite clear to me that he has no interest in learning something new about social media.
Me: “Do you understand what I’m saying?”
Husband: “I did not marry you AND Instagram!!”
I do a charcoal face mask every so often because #selfcare. I love it because it makes my face feel so fresh and so clean, clean. My husband hates it. Evidently he prefers my face sans mask.
Me: “Look at my face after that mask! Doesn’t it look so clean?!?”
Husband: “Yes. In fact, my favorite part of the mask is when it comes off because then I can stop thinking to myself: sssssssmokin!”
Me: *Clearly excited.* “Hey do you want to see what I got on sale this weekend?!?”
Husband: “Do you think I want to see what you got on sale this weekend?”
*Husband does something annoying.*
Me: “You know, you’re lucky you’re cute.”
Husband: “No, YOU are lucky I’m cute.”
Me: “OMG. Look at this strawberry shortcake!”
*Shows husband Instagram story from another blogger.*
Husband: “That’s avocado on a dessert.”
Me: “No it’s not. Who would put avocado on a dessert?”
Husband: “You’d be amazed what those a$$holes put avocado on these days.”
*Me watching IG stories.*
Husband: “Why do all the girls that you watch talk to their phones all sound like they’re on that movie Clueless?”
I hope this post brought a little joy to your day. What ridiculous things does your husband say? See ya on the next post!
