Codes

Me: Do you have hockey this week?
P: Let me check (looks in crackberry).
Me: I am really glad to see you are keeping all your stuff in there now. Now if I ask you about what your schedule is you will actually know.
P: I know. It's a big help. The only problem is when I want to put something in there that I don't want people at work to see. I have to come up with codes.
Me: Codes?
P: Yeah. Like if we have a night planned to play Halo, I have to put in a code word that I understand but work wouldn't so they won't think it's weird.
Me: Uh-huh. (looking at P like he's weird)
P: My Halo code is 117.
Me: Dare I ask why? (
P: Well Master Chief was part of a group of Spartan supersoldiers that all died and he was the only one left. His number was 117.
Me: Uh-huh....so if they know you play hockey and soccer that's ok?
P: Yeah, that's normal to most people.
Me: Do you understand what you just admitted to?
P: (looks at me and blinks)
Me: So anyway, do you have hockey this week?

Go P - what is odd about this post? Nothing at all! Total logic.

Muffy W - are you throwing in a quick joke here? :)

Scargosun - is P a good Quake player? How was he on Doom back in '96?

Kat said...

Oh, that is hilarious. I would so forget what the code was, though.

Do you use gmail? I love mine - but especially for the calendar feature. My hubby and I both use it and we can sync it together - and it's color coded for my activities, his, and ours. So...I never have to ask when he has softball because it's all on the calendar. Unless he forgets and then we have a problem.

Talisman said...

LOL!! I need to start using codes.

Los said...

I probably could use a Blackberry just for the calendar feature ... sigh.

Suburbia said...

Does he have a code to remember his code by?!!

Jen said...

I have one of those husbands too expect its D & D. But he has no crackberry yet.

Sidney said...

Men and codes...isn't that what it's about?? Hey...I left you an award over on my blog. Hop on over there so you can grab it!!

Haha! That was a lot of work to get to code 117. I'm intrigued to know how he comes up with some of his other codes now too.

Does P have a blog?

asthmagirl said...

It sounds like a lot of trouble to cover up the fact that he plays Halo!

Lula! said...

Tell him to look up my husband on Xobox Live--he's Hossfly3, and he's usually playing Halo 3 or Forza 2. Every night. Much to my disdain. The rule is NO Xbox 'til the girls are in bed. And after lovin' time.

Just sayin'.

p.s. LANDSHARK forever. We are kindred souls. We take ours with a slice of lime, ala Corona. Delicious. It's our summer fave, by far!

Ah, yes, the life of a gamer's wife. I know it well.

Re your comment: you can send me questions if you want. I'll do another blog to answer them. No worries. =]

Is it wrong to speak in codes to confuse your wife? I need to start doing that.

KathyLikesPink said...
