The Tale of Crazy Betty

Sit down boys and girls as we tell you the tale of Betty. She is a cashier at our local large chain pharmacy. (The names have been changed to protect the cuckoo.) Or, as we like to call her, Crazy Betty. Of course we would never call her that to her face, not that she would notice since her unhingement has long supplanted her ability to read others affect.

Don’t Need a Reason for the Season

CoupleDumb is so proud to have a guest blogger today. All the way from Karachi, Pakistan, we have Anne Dias from www.caffeinatedbliss.com . Anne is an amazing writer, wife of almost 6 years and mother of twin 5 year olds. We asked Anne to write about her Christmas experience because she shares our craziness about the season and yet here is a woman from Pakistan where the Muslim faith is the predominant religion. Kind of makes you wonder about all of your judgments and thoughts regarding the Middle East. Maybe there is a couple just like us writing a relationship blog wondering if they’ll ever get any sleep and uninterrupted sex.

Coffee with a sprinkle of niceness.

It’s Thursday and this is where we dedicate about 500+ words to relationships. Naughty and Nice are just states of being in relation to being in relationship. We know we are being heady but try to follow us here. You can’t really be naughty or nice in a vacuum can you? But you can be naughty with a vacuum and we’re sure your parents would love it if you did vacuum. What the hell are we talking about?

What we are thankful for

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you are outside of the United States, today we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. The one day of the year where we try to put aside our typical self entitled attitude and attempt to thank the peons who make it all possible for us all year long. To celebrate, we murder a fowl, stuff it with whatever tickles our fancy from pork to fungus to stale bread, make many dishes with tubers from the starchy to the sweet and end it all with a veggie pie. The King and Queen of CoupleDumb have decided to take this opportunity to share what they are grateful for this Thanksgiving. So grab another slice of pumpkin pie and fight the urge to sleep as we unveil the CoupleDumb Thanks (fill-in-the-blank) List:

To Love, Honor, and Destroy

Some people believe that having a rip-roaring fight is the best thing that you can do in a relationship. Maybe add in some histrionics and some makeup sex and this is what they call a good relationship. We try to avoid these people. But this is Thursday of Losing Your Mind week and we would be remiss if we didn’t say something about those times when we are fighting, usually not remembering why we started arguing because the bloodlust has taken over and we have lost our minds. So, welcome to CoupleDumb. We hope you make it out intact.
