A Roll in the Hay (or the Mud, Perhaps)

When I got this picture in an email earlier this week from my sister-in-law Susie, I knew I had to share it on Pink Saturday. It makes me happy just looking at it.

It also reminds me of a saying that I have pinned to my bulletin board. I'm not sure who gave it to me, but I think about it all the time, since I'm married to an engineer. So here's my thought for the day.

"Arguing with an Engineer is like wrestling in the mud with a pig. After a while you realize that the pig enjoys it!"

bijw9y Happy Pink Saturday everyone. Be sure to stop by Beverly's place at How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday posts. By the way, I just love Beverly's new fall "dress."

LOVE the pink hay-pig. I bet that's a new breed!

My Fisherhubby is NOT an engineer, but I do believe he LOVES arguing with me too - - - he INTENTIONALLY says/does things to get my goat, and my goat is easily got!!!! I tell him all the time he only married me to have a constant source of someone to pick on.

I'm going to borrow this photo to add a touch of humor to my macabre Ed Gein Halloween tale - - - if you don't object too loudly.

Thanks.

Great pig, and great saying. I live with an engineer, too. And, on the previous post, we were just talking about a few things my son would know nothing about, oleo is definitely one, along with rotary dial phones, Burl Ives...

Kathy, I love this. I work with engineers every day, and I will totally vouch for that saying. So true!

Happy Pink Saturday.

I love the piggie. I loved your post and have to admit, laughed myself silly. My husband is not an engineer, however this saying does indeed apply to him. :). Thank you for the smiles and Happy belated Pink Saturday.

That is so funny! My husband says the same thing just "You get mad and the pig enjoys it." So true!
