Darbie & Ben ~ Say What?

“Ben, look at my necklace and bracelet!” Darbie showed Ben her new pearl jewelry.

 “Very nice. Where did you get those?”

 “I got them from Jared’s,” she told him.

“Darbie, it’s not your birthday or even Christmas. Why would you get jewelry?” Ben knew she would have what she considered a logical reason to this question even if he never, in his entire life, understood it.

 “Because they’re SO pretty!”

He was wrong. This time the reason was utterly stupid. “The pretty reason is getting old, Darbie. And Jarrod really needs to stop with the jewelry.”

 “Why? It’s how Jared makes a ton of money.”

“It’s how Jarrod will go broke.”

“Not unless you don’t pay in thirty days.”

 “ME pay?” Ben had a sinking suspicion this conversation was going to get muddled like oh so many others.

 “Yes you.”

 “Why me?” Yep, totally muddled. Like a cloud of confusion dropped out of the sky and landed in their living room.

 “Because YOU pay the bills, and I put it on the American Express card,” Darbie told him, but it wasn’t like he didn’t already know! In fact, HE was the one who elected himself for that crappy job.

 “If Jarrod bought the jewelry he can darn well pay for it.” Ben felt a Darbie-interaction-headache coming on.

 “Why would Jarrod pay for my jewelry?” Darbie looked at Ben like he had grown two heads and wondered why on earth he was bringing her cousin into it.

“Because he bought it.”

 “He didn’t buy it.” Darbie corrected him, feeling like she was going a bit crazy.

 “Yes he did.” Ben asserted.

 “No he didn’t, I did,” Darbie told him firmly, wanting to stamp her foot for good measure.

 “Darbie, you said Jarrod bought you jewelry.” Why did he always feel like he was speaking a completely different language than his wife?

 “I most certainly did not.” Darbie stood firm, knowing full well EXACTLY what she had told her husband.

 “Yes you did!” He began to rub his temples.

 “When did I say my cousin Jarrod bought my jewelry?” She inquired.

 “When I asked where you got it!”

 “I didn’t say cousin Jarrod bought it.” She told him, shaking her blonde head. If only he paid attention when she spoke!

“Yes you DID. You said you got it from Jarrod.” He rubbed his temples more vigorously.

 Darbie began to giggle.

 “This isn’t funny, Darbie.” Ben felt like he was going nuts and didn’t think the situation was at all funny when all he wanted to know was why he had to pay for jewelry her cousin supposedly purchased for her!

 “Oh but it is.” Darbie said giggling some more. “I SAID, I got it FROM Jared’s, the jewelry store.”

 Ben stared at Darbie with his mouth open but no words came forth.

 “Ben, I think you need to LISTEN to me when I speak. AND read Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.

 “And why would I want to do that?”

“So we are both speaking English instead of Martian and Venusian.” She explained sweetly, then sat next to him on the sofa and rested her head next to his.



  1. OMG, HILARIOUS, Pamela!

    " “Oh but it is.” Darbie said giggling some more. “I SAID, I got it FROM Jared’s, the jewelry store.”"

    Bwhahahhahahahahahaha! Stellar finish!

    And that last photo of Darbie and Ben sitting together on the couch is ADORABLE! How did you ever get them to pose that way? It's BRILLIANT!

    Have a faaaaaabulous weekend, dear lady!

    X to you, Darbie and Ben!

    1. Ron, I took a lot of pictures to get them to "pose" like that! They do have "joints" but not their waists! They don't "twist". Crap. lol.

  2. Wow, I think I've had this conversation! And Darbie's pose with her hand on her hip? Perfect!

    1. Wow, I think I've had this conversation!

      Bubbe, I know right! We can all relate, even if it's not jewelry, there's something! ;-)

      The "hand on hip" is one of my favorite poses!

  3. Okay Pam, here are a couple of links I hope you'll enjoy.

    Check them out, they're right you you alley girlfriend! ;)

    1. Bubbe,! I just love Barbie as Mona Lisa!

      That lego display is incredible! I couldn't imagine building it! The Toys R Us store in New York has the Empire State Building made from Legos (or at least it did) plus a few other buildings. They are unbelievable!

      I do like William and Kate Barbie. If I was a big follower of the Royal Wedding, I'd probably have bought them! Alas, I didn't buy them, so now have money for Darbie and Ben's "house"! ;-)

      Thank you for the links!
