I Sure Could Use A Brownie Sundae Right About Now.

Blogger and I have kissed and made up. I've apologized for my selfish behavior and blogger apologized for being such a B to me yesterday and now all is well in bloggy land.




So the hubster started that crazy HCG diet that everyone seems to be on these days. Ya know, the one that you have to shoot yourself up every morning with a foot long needle?





Yeah, that one.


Well the first week he was on it he started acting so weird. He was just blah! He was getting irritated very easily and was just so unhappy and depressed which is SO unlike Al! I'm like wait a second, I'm the depressed one who eats a whole carton of ice cream in one sitting, not you!


So he called his HCG doctor who explained that the shots he was taking contain hormones and apparently the dose was too high for his body, causing him to have, get this, MAN PMS!


Yes, my husband was suffering from PMS!





Oh I about died when he told me that! Luckily they lowered his dose so he no longer is acting like a premenstrual woman. So besides the occasional brownie craving, he is back to his normal happy Al-self, thank god! Lord knows our household can barely handle one PMSer let alone two! We all know what happens when I have PMS...

I'm glad I just have one daughter because when she was around, we'd both PMS together and hubby and son would fear for their lives.

Get your brownie sundae!

I don't think I would be able to handle my husband getting PMS, he already acts like a girl most of the time.

Melissa said...

My husband would be the biggest baby if he had PMS. He already thinks I am crazy when I am pmsing!!

Nana said...

You know Pooba, HCG is the Hormone that grows by the billions inside a women when she is pregnant.
Awwww he's gonna have baby. Then he can really know what a weight problem is. ha ha ha. Congratulations!! Let me know when the shower is.

Megan said...

Hahahaha Love the cartoon! Glad Al is back to his non-pms'y self! ;0P

Vida_de_Chiqa said...

Hahaha, I love that cartoon...It's like we do a 360 and turn into terminators when it's that time of the month...watch out!

Karin Katherine said...

Wait a second-----your hubby is taking fertility drugs? HCG is a fertility drug.

Man, now I've heard of everything. Most patients on fertility drugs complain about the weight gain...amazing.

nikkicrumpet said...

YIKES...I'm glad they got him stablized...can't be having men with PMS...we're the only ones allowed to be that bitchy!

Suzi said...

Glad to hear you kissed and made up with Bloggy.

Love the cartoon, I feel like I need the PMS Swat Team sometimes, my poor, poor boys get the brunt of my bithcyness. I guess that means they will be prepared for future wives. MWAHAHA!

ChicagoLady said...

I've never heard of the HCG diet. Interesting reaction Al had.

Kristina P. said...

That is hilarious! I have never even heard of this!

Yaya said...

Hahahaha! I REALLY shouldn't laugh at that, but...hahahahahaha!

BSW said...

BSW said...

Okay so can I spell or type?? I mean't to say no soda on my comment above.

BSW said...

I guess I am a little inpatient too since I posted two of the same comment. Okay, no more comments from me!

Cathy said...

LOL! I can't believe your husband is on an HCG diet...I've never hear of this!

angie said...

So, how long can you make fun of him until he doesn't find it funny anymore?! Actually, I guess he probably never found it funny to begin with. Well, maybe he will be able to understand where you're coming from each month a little better now.

I totally had a brownie sundae today. It even had a chocolate chip cookie on TOP of the brownie!

Julia said...

Weird diet...I have never heard of that one. Anything with needles I strictly avoid. Well run for the hills.... But I am so hungry right now I want a brownie sunday too. Considering I gained uhum.... four lbs....uhummmmmm over the past three weeks I should be on this diet too. If I could only get over the needles though. ;)

Mrs. D Lightful said...

LOL!!! I bet he is thrilled you shared that with everyone! Ha ha ha. Too funny.

Hey girl by the way, I have tagged you. Have a great day!

Cris said...

LOL you are a HOOT Kel I love you. Yes mens PMS is really something isn't it. I am on maintance now well kind of I had a glass of wine tonight after NO wine for 45 days. It is really GOOD.

Lee said...

My ex-boyfriend has PMS all the time.
I need to get him a lot of midol or something.

Bee and Rose said...

My husband has PMS all the time! At least your hubs has an excuse! My husband is just a gosh darn PMS diva! lol!

Kasey Hunt said...

I have never heard of that diet. You need to blog about the diet. A lot of us are curious about it!!! I like the comic, that is hilarious.

After reading this, I have a new found respect for Al. Anyone who allows his wife to post about his "male PMS" on the internet is one hell of a guy.

I take back what I said about you leaving him to move to California to be my neighbor. Definitely bring Al when you make the move.

Rebecca Jo said...

My husband is bad enough WITHOUT PMS symptoms... we'd kill each other!

you'll have to keep us updated on his journey with this... to me, it sounds scary...


your cartoon cracked me up too! I'm sure that squad has been at my house MANY times!

Tremayne and Dellany Higby said...

Whatev men do have PMS! I am keeping track of his cycle so I know when to run for cover.

Um this "diet" sounds seriously scary! Just shoot some synthetic hormones up, you'll look hot... pfft I'll stick to the crack and Jack.

Wehrle said...

Oh that is funny! Maybe he will be more sympathetic next time you are PMSing! What is the HCG diet? I don't want to shoot myslef up every morning but if I lost a whole bunch of weight I may consider it!!

One Hypo said...

I've heard of shooting up to lose weight, but these people usually live on street corners.

Hernandez Family said...

HCG is a hormone that pregnant women get so I am not surprised he felt that way! I believe they actually get the injection from pregnant womens urine!!! So he is injecting himself with urine, Awesome. How much do you pay I will give you my urine for half the price! Just let me know!

Lyndsay said...

Okay ... so, I tell my husband he has PMS all of the time ... what I would give to actually be right - HA!

Queenie Jeannie said...

YOU BE A WINNER!!!!!!! =)

Joy said...

I've never heard of this but maybe more men ought to try it and their sympathy factor might increase! ;o)

dani said...

Kel, no, I can't find Christy's blog. What happened to her? So much for "all together now (all together now)"

LadyStyx said...

*cackles uncontrollably and proceeds to share the comic with husband who also laughs and nods appreciatively*

i'm black betty said...

love.the.cartoon. :)

San said...

Hahaha! Hiya from SITS. First time here - but this post totally cracked me up! :)

Kristen said...

Every man should experience the real PMS just once. Maybe they'll appreciate us more.

CLUFF FAMILY said...
