Is this really possible?

This morning I asked Lloyd to fill up some sippy cups with water for a short outing while I was getting Shane dressed. This is what I heard:

Short grunt of assent
Cupboard door opening
Cupboard door closing
"I can't tell what cups go with what lids"

Seriously, dude? You can fly a $200 Million jet filled with people and all kinds of expensive crap halfway around the world to a teeny tiny dark airfield while tracers fill the sky, but you can't match up some brightly colored character cups with the matching lids? Even after I soundly mocked him, he continued to insist it was beyond him. So tell me, is there even a remote possibility he is telling the truth?

Oh that is too funny! Sounds like my husband when I ask him to do something he doesn't really want to do. Who knows, I might do it too sometimes, but it cracks me up how the dumbest questions come out when being asked to do something you don't want to.

OK, here's the solution...buy only one style, color, type of cup. All lids fit all cups. No excuses!

OH MY!!! I ca so relate!!! I hate to admit this. This morning we were running a little behind and I asked Dave to get Trenton some pants out of his drawer. He actually said, "Which drawer is his???" And he was serious! I sent Dalton up to help him. It made me realize that he is so lucky to have a wife that takes of so much around the house so he doesn't have to.

I just found your blog from Crunchy Chicken's. This post made me CRACK UP; I am a former Navy Corpsman, and I used to encounter pilots, mechanics, and other folks that are WAY smarter than me, and they would have trouble with the simplest things... that and my DH also can't match "Tupperware" lids either.
