He Said She Said: What’s Mine is Yours?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

The results are in for the Pill Popped Debate. I guess I have learned my lesson.  I will never let The Donkey write my side of a debate again! Apparently, quite a few people think it's ok to share medicine between spouses.  I won't be flushing old pills down the toilet anymore ...

He Said She Said: The Wife Can Supply Her Son With Knitting Goods

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun Wow, our last Great Debate we had quite a while ago, and we never posted the results. Unfortunately I took another beating. I never thought so many people would support my son in becoming a knitter. I bought him Legos for his birthday, but I may ...

He Said She Said: Wife To Receive Baby Naming Priveleges

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Disgrace We finally set up our Twitter feed (see our announcement below)– and just in time too. Today we find out if we are having a boy or girl. I will twitter the event during the ultrasound. This is a big deal since all of the grandchildren on my side are ...

He Said She Said: A Husband Has a Right to Shave

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Disarmed  The votes have been tallied in the Arm Shaving Debate: Well, sad but true--I don't get to force The Donkey to keep the hair on his arms.  I know I can't force him to do anything, but I would hope that he would just honor my preferences.  I must admit I've ...

He Said She Said: The Wife Deserves a Raise

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Hunger Strike The results are in for our Great Allowance Debate It's once again clear to me that my supporters did not show up for this debate. I did get feedback that the wording of the question and choices made it virtually impossible to not vote for my wife. Her clever wording ...

The Husband Better Wear His Wedding Ring

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

Wrapped  Around Her Finger The Results are in for the Wedding Ring Debate Looks like another tough loss. I didn’t really try to propose an argument because I thought a man could decide what he wears--I guess not. Typically we have to stand behind the decision the voters make, but I will ...

Lump of Coal

Friday, December 28th, 2007

Here are the results from our Gift-Giving Debate. I can't believe she won this debate. Now I can't count towels, dishes, or appliances as gifts because they are a need rather than a want. There are a few positives from this loss: -I will no longer hear about not getting her clothes ...

My Call

Friday, December 14th, 2007

Here are the results for the Great Babysitter Debate The people have spoken: apparently no parent alive would be comfortable having a donkey call their daughter (which kind of makes you wonder what happened when my father was approached with a request for my hand in marriage). I suppose ...

A Bunch Of Hot Air

Friday, November 30th, 2007

The votes have been tallied for the great gaseous debate. This isn't as surprising as my last loss , but I am still surprised I didn't have more support. My wife's "smoke cloud" of lies tainted the voters. I guarantee a win next time! Great Debate Totals The Donkey: 3 (West; Farm; ...

Some Vacation

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Results are in for the Business Trip/Vacation Debate. I must admit that I am surprised by the outcome of this debate. I really thought I would win this argument, but I guess not. Coincidentally, this week we will be taking our kids for an overnight stay at a hotel. The weird thing ...
