Communication. That's what it's all about. I created this ACEO and received several comments, all from women, about how true it seems. Apparently I'm not the only wife out there who's having trouble being understood...

Missiles and Toads
My husband and I don't speak the same language. Oh, he'll tell you he's speaking English,and he might speak it when he's around other people. But when he's talking to me it's in some dialect I don't understand
I've said for years that my side of the conversationusually just consists of, "What?", "Huh?", "What did you say?"
I don't think he can understand me either, though.I think I'm speaking clearly. E - NUN - CI - A - TING everything just as it should be. But he doesn't understand.
Maybe it's not the clarity of the speech at all.Maybe it has something to do with the gender difference. Men just expect to hear something else. You know, something manly.
Maybe I'll do my own decorating this year. The missiles and toads just aren't what I was expecting.
