    I’ve asked Lea to be thinking about “10 things she wishes I would whisper in her ear.” Hopefully I can talk her in to posting those towards the end of the week.

  2. Dane says:

    Those are some good ones Trey. Here is my top ten:

    10. We shouldn’t have sold the travel trailer. Let’s go buy a new one.

    9. Of course you can retire & become a professional fly fishing bum.

    7. The bathroom looks perfect the way it is. You don’t have to finish remodeling it.

    6. I love football & can’t get enough of the NFL Network.

    5. I decided to stop baking cakes & sold all of my pans & that mixer that I know you hate to hear.

    4. I got rid of all the cats today.

    3. Why don’t you put a new lift kit on your pickup & buy yourself that 4-door Jeep Wangler you’ve been drooling over?

    2. When we both retire, why don’t we move to the mountains?

    And the number one thing I’d love to hear my wife whisper in my ear…

    1. Would you like to have a PAYDAY?

  3. Lisa says:

    Here’s mine:
    1. Wanna snuggle on the couch and watch a romantic comedy?
    2. I’d love to take you out to the most-expensive restaurant in town tonight … do you think we could get a babysitter?
    3. You really ought to get some new clothes this weekend. Let’s say, about $300 worth?
    4. I love the cute bumper sticker you put on your car (which is now my car), do you have any more you’d like to put on?
    5. Do you want to take a stroll around the block this evening?
    6. Our television is plenty big enough … why don’t we go pick out a dishwasher so you don’t have to wash the dishes by hand.
    7. You’re the best mommy and wife in the whole world.
    8. I don’t mind at all if you snuggle closer at night to stay warm, I know your feet and hands are especially cold, I’ll rub them for you til they’re warmer.
    9. While you’re clothes-shopping, pick out a few new pairs of shoes too.
    10. Whatever restaurant is your favorite is my favorite too.

    Dane’s was pretty funny. You guys are clever.

  4. Brian Nicklaus says:

    #6 strikes close to home. our TV is 20 years old, has a converter for the DVD, remote fell apart, I occasionally mention buying a new one, but she won’t go for it.

  5. DJG says:

    1. Baby I just got you Direct TV with the Nascar package today!
    2. But since you would loose the Tennis Channel we will keep Dish Network as well.
    3. I think I have figured out a way to build you a floating tennis court.
    4. I want you to go spend a month in the islands by yourself….take all of your books!
    5. I don’t really care if you work or not, we can cut back on some things where you can play more tennis.
    6. I have tickets to Bristol, Talledega and Atlanta…and next year we are going to Daytona!!
    7. I have hired a cook.
    8. I want to go to church with you.
    9. I am tired of watching American Idol…
    10. I want us to entertain more!!!

  6. Ancient Wanderer says:

    This is the most potentially hazardous post I’ve ever read.


  7. Trey Morgan says:

    Don … can we use you as a marriage counselor for all of us who are going to need it after our spouses read these?

    Lisa … you are such a “girl.”

  8. Lisa says:

    Um … you know all mine were in response to yours, right? I figured your wife needed a “voice” until you get her list. :)

    Maybe I’ll get back on later with my real answers. Right now the trash I left on the curb is flying down the street. (Um, how girly is it to be the one who takes the trash out??)

  9. Lisa says:

    Okay, I am a girl. Glad you know the secret so I don’t have to hide it anymore. Here are some things I’d love to be asked by my hubby…
    1. Wow, the house looks great! I can tell you’ve been working so hard today.
    2. I’ll cook tonight.
    3. Just sit here and do nothing while I play with your hair, rub your shoulders and back.
    4. Your parents are going to be in town? Great!!
    5. How about we read the Bible together again, like we used to when we were first married?
    6. Let’s pray.

    Okay, better stop before I get too snarky. :)

  10. Trey Morgan says:

    Lisa … I like them. Especially 5 & 6. And, what does “snarky” mean?

  11. tim rush says:

    # 1. Ah, don’t you just want to stay in and watch Nacho Libre again?

  12. Lisa says:

    “snarky”:(adjective) describes a witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term. Snark is sometimes mistaken for a snotty or arrogant attitude. (I got that from the urban dictionary)

    (I like being able to teach a preacher something for a change!)

  13. Lisa says:

    Oh, I just found this: it comes from the combination of “snide” and “remark.”

  14. Trey Morgan says:

    Tim … hey buddy you know I’m a Nacho fan too.

    Lisa, I have learned something new today. I’ll see if I can work the word into my sermon on Sunday. Do you think that could be a “northern” word? Kind of like “y’all” is a “southern” word?

  15. The Preacher's Household: says:

    There are a couple on the lists that I can relate to. Mostly Kathy is understanding. I know she would like the back and scalp rub too. Did my wife ask you to put those on your list? I am learning to be content in whatever circumstance. The one I would add is ironic given tomorrows post on our blog. I know Kathy would like the shopping trip or the Direct/Dish TV. I do not wish anyone ill, but I would love to come home and have Kathy wisper in my ear someone has left us an inheritance or some money just came in the mail etc. so we can go on that vacation to Greece we have dreamed of or so we can not have to live on such a tight budget. I feel like such the ogre

  16. Stoned-Campbell Disciple says:

    I’m emailing this to my wife!!

    Bobby Valentine

  17. nb says:

    I’m going to be listening closely for “snarky” in the next podcast. :)

  18. Trey Morgan says:

    nb … I’ve got to be careful what I’m committing to around you. lol

    I will do my best. But do you remember the #1 on yesterday’s post on boring preachers? That one worries me with this word. ha

  19. Bobby Cohoon says:

    Can you keep us posted on when she whispers each of these things to you? :-)


  20. Lisa says:

    No, I wouldn’t use snarky in a sermon. :) You’ll definitely be misunderstood. I wouldn’t say it’s a northern word so much as it is an urban word — you’d probably find it in big cities (though I don’t know) or maybe it’s used a lot among teens who IM & text-message. Don’t know. I first heard it from a cool Nashville blogger.

    Wow, didn’t know it was going to get so much attention. The reason I first used it was because I was beginning to feel “snarky” with the way my list was going. You obviously can’t read my mind and know what I would have said next on the list, but it was beginning to sound bitter & resentful & … well, snarky.

  21. Trey Morgan says:

    Lisa … I did notice the direction you were going. I could read your feelings right through the high-speed internet cable.

    Bobby… I can honestly say the only one she’s ever whispered in my ear is #7. She is absolutely fabulous with giving me praise and encouragement. But I’m not holding my breath to hear any of the other 9 things…

  22. The Preacher's Household: says:

    I am a little late in posting because I debated about putting my first thought. It would be for James to say, “Honey, I put a dead bolt on our bedroom door.” Before you jump to conclusions, know that I have very little privacy and even less alone time. Our only bathroom is in our bedroom and even it seems to be grand central station 24 / 7.
    My other thought was for him to say, “You never have to do dishes or clean the bathroom again.” Now that is romance!

  23. Trey Morgan says:

    Kathy … you make me smile. My wife asked if I was going to be honest on the top 10 and add something in there about her whispering, “Honey, the kids aren’t home tonight, got any ideas?”

    I didn’t. When she read it for herself … she called me a chicken. ha
