So, after a nice long holiday weekend in which the hubby and I took time off from work to hang poolside with friends and celebrate the USA's birth, I "sucked it up" and cleaned my house, Tuesday. With my Dyson in hand, I attacked my couch to remove the hairs my dog so thoughtfully leaves behind. As I approached it, I noticed the cushions were kinda cock-eyed looking.
Hmmm...ok.
I remove cushions (after beating them with the Dyson) only to see that the back frame part of the couch is now concave shape instead of straight up from its joint at the seat frame.
My children tend to "flop" on it...so, I figure it was one flop too many. I call them downstairs.
"Who broke my couch?" I demand.
They exchange glances and then the eldest yells, "Daddy, Mommy wants you."

Mr. Playmore comes around the corner, sees the couch in pain and says, "Oh...THAT'S what that "Crack!!" was!

Evidently, in a round of horseplay, my grown husband threw the eldest down on the couch and the couch protested. And was ignored.
So...I ask you, ladies of ARFcom...HOW do I punish my 40 year old?

Since it is not a sleeper, THIS is not an option.

He's gotta fall asleep eventually...the options are endless...

You might want to check with Persephone (BTW damned hawt chicka, that one)...

After seeing how badly she owned DustyC...I'll bet she's got lots of diabolical notions.

Force him to have sex every day for the next year?

Give him sex every day for a year. If he refuses, then I will stand in and take his punishment.


ETA: I swear I didn't read the post above mine until AFTER I posted.

But I have been a naughty lad so far this year. I could use the punishment.

What are all you icky, potential couch breakers doing in my thread?
Shoo!

Link Posted: 7/11/2008 7:19:49 AM EST
You make him go with you to shop for the replacement.


(I wouldn't go, but maybe he will.)
Link Posted: 7/11/2008 7:21:33 AM EST
I don't know. Make him a buy a new one that is better? Good luck with that. If you figure it out, let me know. I have a 33yr old that needs to be punished.

I didn't realize so many guys of arfcom fell under the ladies of arfcom category. J/K everyone.

Thats not a punishment, hell its something that is needed. Although my girlfriend does most of the shopping in our house if she were to call me and ask to pick her up some on the way home I would have not problem in doing so. Id prolly try to find the hottest girl in there and ask her opinion as well and ask if there are any that are flavored or scented and dont leave an irritating burn behind when you use them to stop bloody noses. Hell I even have some in my med kit just for using on bloody/broken noses.

Maybe some people have dry senses of humor.

I'm surprised you don't like the idea. Women always seem to like redecorating. You could force the color scheme to pink & lavender to indicate someone is browsing the women's shooters forum. Maybe you should demand a certain goat get right on that project!

This one, it would punish him greatly, especially if you went about it very aggressively and passionately.

Or you could gain 40 pounds....................and break a couch or 3 yourself.

I would never do that.

And fetal makes it hard to get his wallet out of his pocket to PAY.

SP1 remains in the top seat of the WIFEY of the year.

Large replacement purchases and vodka is always a good thing.

Woman rule no 1.
Once you get the new couch..well you notice that all the other furniture just looks uhhhh worn. Then with new furniture the carpet and flooring doesn't match. Of course the wall have to have some fresh paint and paper. Time for new pics INCLUDING A family one.
Gosh these things have a way of just being a continual reminder never to rough house in the living room.
