Over the years, I've been
And one of the things I've learned, is that there are certain things he says that have different, or hidden meanings. The following is just a little snippet of some of the "Ty-isms" I've figured out.
"I'm gonna watch the game." = "I won't be listening to a word you say for the next 4 quarters."
"I'm checking Facebook." = "I'm checking Facebook, but then I'm going to spend hours on hunting websites too."
"I'm completely out of underwear." = "I still have plenty of underwear, but I'm out of my favorite kind."
"That's my sweat towel from working out last night." = "I wouldn't touch that thing if I were you...it'll still be wet for 48 hours."
"Can I use your Kindle real quick?" = "I
"I don't care if you spend some of our money on new work clothes." = "I better get a peek at that receipt so that I can spend an equal amount on hunting/fishing gear. That's actually the only reason I'm allowing you to buy clothes anyway."
"I think I'll have asparagus with my dinner tonight." = "In 20 minutes, the house will reak and so will my pee."
"Today I'm gonna clean up my pile of stuff off the island." = "You should probably get used to the fact that my pile will actually be there weeks."
I could go on and on, but I'll save that for another time. Meanwhile, we're off to meet our brand-new baby niece tomorrow night. And I'll probably pick up on a few more "Ty-isms" along the way :)
