Nothin’ Like Embarrassing Your Hubby at a Classy Joint June 14, 2008

Filed under: Marriage — thediaperdiaries @ 10:48 pm

  The hubby took me out to dinner tonight for a slightly belated birthday dinner. We went to one of our favorite restaurants that is a bit on the classy side. Right up our alley…

First, let’s back up. One one of our first dates, the hubby took me to the grand opening of a swanky wine bar in downtown Chicago. At the time I thought good wine came in a box. Cause I was CLAAASSY!! I was really enjoying myself. Thinking I was fooling him into thinking I was high brow. Ok, maybe not…at some point in the night when he looked over at me, I was picking something out of my teeth. When I looked up, the look on his face pretty much confirmed that despite the fact I literally had something in my teeth, it is apparently not cool to reach in with your fingernail and pick said thing out on a date. Ok then, good to know.

So tonight to carry on the tradition of high class, I asked the waitress about poop. Well, actually poo. You see the hubby was debating getting the soft shell crab which was on special. But he was concerned that it might have poo in it. You know how when you get shrimp, you can sometimes see a black line in it if it hasn’t be de-veined. Yeah, um, that’s poo. So the hubby wanted the crab, but the poo possiblity was holding him back. So he settled on the salmon. I thought this was silly since apparently you can only get these thing like one month a year. So….when the waitress came back to take our order, I asked her if the crab contained any poo. Cause I feel it is something you should know.

Good news, no poo. The crabs have all their insides pulled out before they are cooked. MMMM, eviscerated crab. What could be more classy and romantic than poo-less, gut-less crab. And a wife who asks about poo at an upscale restaurant…the classiest.

    I love it!! On one of my first dates with DH, I took off my shoes and stunk up the car! (It was just that pair of shoes that stuck, I swear! They are the evil red shoes!) We had a second date, so it must not have been too bad. Either that or he was really hard up for a date. I cant figure out which one.

    This is FUNNY! David’s usually the one embarrassing me on our dates – nothing to do with classy, but he’s not afraid to ask anyone about or for anything.

    Mmmm…crab and salmon…Leo’s? 🙂

    Ricardo and I went to a bar to hang out with an old army friend. I ended up in the bathroom (at the bar) with a BAD stomach. I promptly asked him to take me home. I was embarrassed for myself!

    ew – soft-sell crab kind of wigs me out. too many legs and very bug-like. I hope he enjoyed it though.

  6. Heather Says:

    You’re cracking me up … I hope the meal and the date eas fabullous!



    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this about you!

    I bet the server has a blog about the woman who asked about poo too. Ha Ha Ha!

  9. Marcia Says:

    Haha this is totally something I would do as well. I have no shame if I seriously have a question. Usually, the hubby is doing the embarrassing from his temper. He gets really irritated with people really fast. Many times I feel like hiding and running to the car.

  10. Brilliant! I probably would have done the same thing….living in Maine and all, with lobsters, even if I can’t stand them!

    Hilarious…love your blog!

    Thought deveining depooed the crab ?

  12. KD Says:

    HAHAHAHHAAHAA! Too funny!

  13. I’d ask too. I’m not up for poo. But then again, I stick out at all those fancy places big time.

    Thanks for the laugh!

    HaHaHa! Don’t feel too bad–my husband once asked a waitress if she liked wearing a bra, because we were talking about my distaste for undergarments when she walked up to take our drink order. Yeah, we gave battle pay to that poor girl.

    Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.
