From time to time I have shared Chrisisms here on It’s Just Life. These are just little quips and comments that my beloved makes that make me giggle from time to time. Sometimes they are serious but most often they are humorous. I haven’t posted any for months. Guess we have had kind of a dry spell of wittiness here but here are a few for your reading pleasure.
We were discussing some folks who we thought were control freaks. You know those people who always have to have their fingers in everything to make sure that it goes exactly the way they want it to go. Those are the people who have to follow every single rule to the finest detail. Chris said ” Rules are what led to the Salem witch trials.”. Yikes!
Buddy was racing around the house and was acting all crazy. Chris said he had “cat timers”.
When we were talking one time about love and joking about hunks of love Chris said “I am more of a blob of burning love now.” Well blob or not—I will take him!
Once when we were reflecting upon some of the places I have lived in my life we got to talking about a place I lived with my parents right before we got married. It was a very strange little town with very odd people. Chris referred to it as “a gene thimble instead of a gene pool”. Pretty accurate.
We were talking about fishing Chris was extolling the value of using fake bait because according to him “you don’t want to keep feeding your worms to the bass and just give them away.” I guess that makes sense.
We love our cats but sometimes they won’t leave us alone. Especially when we have been gone for awhile. Upon our return from a trip Chris could not get Buddy to leave him alone and said he was an “invasive” species.
And now a few from the vault:
“She needs to add on to her closet to hold all the skeletons.”
“People are rude. They give pigs a bad name.”
“You’re blogging me off!”
And the one that started it all 5 years ago when I started writing them down: “We are just spinning in our teacups.”
Hope you enjoyed my latest Chrisisms and my funny honey. Stop by anytime and leave me a comment. Each comment this month goes to support our Comments for a Cause – Click here for more info.

Bill says colourful things, too. I need to write down the ones my Grampy used to say. I still use those old country sayings. Thanks for sharing! Hugs.
I bet Bill does have some great lines. I would imagine that in his line of work he has the chance to see a lot of “interesting” things that he can comment on. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
He is always so funny! Today my hubby said he needed to vacuum the car as it was getting kind of hairy (since we got a dog this tends to happen). I said, “Yes, you do leave a lot of hair around.” He said, “I know. I didn´t think being a werewolf would be this hard” It made me giggle!!
Haha. I have this imagine of a werewolf driving your car down the road now! 🙂
Unfortunately, I can understand the invasive species comment. We have a mega feral cat problem in my community.
Love the blob of love and the skeleton one! LOL!
I like all of them especially the ones mentioned by others. “Gene thimble” – ouch. Good one
I always love reading these! My Motor Man makes me laugh almost every day – maybe EVERY day. But I never seem to remember to write down what he says! He has so many stories of things he did from his childhood. I’ve videoed him telling about a couple of them. I need to do more.
Thanks for sharing!
ROFL Invasive species!
You are married to one witty guy! Very funny!
Uh oh! I hope I wasn’t one of those people referred to in the first Chrisism!
You can rest assured it was not related in any regards to you! :-0
I DID enjoy the latest Chrisisms! I missed them! Closet skeletons… funny! Gene thimble really got me laughing and it’s early in the morning and CH is still sleeping!
Uh oh…hope we didn’t wake CH up!!!! Hope you are off to the start of a great day. Any day that starts with laughter is a good one in my book.
No, he is sound asleep. I am downstairs on the couch with the laptop. Yes, laughter always starts the day of right!
I always read your Chrisisms to John! Love them.
He is something, that is for sure! Thanks for sharing with John!
How’d you know I missed Chrisisms? I fee like there should be sitcom where he can say all these things!
He wants them on his tombstone!
My life is a sitcom sometimes. 🙂
Now I know what Chrisims are. Thanks for sharing.
