Couples Counseling -Are You Kidding Me? That's It For Me.

If you are just joining me you
really need to read
Session Two & Three to understand
this whole scenario.
We are now down to 
THREE COUPLES.
Couple # 3 is the reverse of me and MyHero.
James thinks everything is funny.
His wife takes everything a bit too seriously.
Seriously!
James and I try not to sit where we can make
eye contact because it is all downhill from there.
Session Three:
James comes by himself.
Counselor/Lila:  Where is your wife?
James:  Ummm....she isn't coming tonight.
Lila: Oh-Is she ill?
James:  No, she's mad.  Say, could you take a look at my back?  
She threw something at me
and I think it might have cut my back.
She says she is not coming back again.
Lila:  Well, this is certainly too bad.
(I start laughing again and so does James)
We are now down to 
TWO COUPLES.
Me:  Lila, I don't think this is for us-
um...we don't have these kinds of  problems.
Lila:  No, No...you need to come...you can serve
as a good example.
Ummm...There is no one left to serve as
an example for-but we'll see.
We never went back.
Do you suppose she is still sitting there....
all alone...in that room.....with the door open....
with the coffepot on....waiting?
Waiting?
Waiting?
Nah! Probably Not.
And, thus, ended our counseling sessions
although I swear MyHero still needs help!;>)

Good Morning, You are too funny! What wonderful posts. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Anna

Debbiedoo's said...

Ok I had to go back and read one and two...but OH my, I had a vision of you laughing out loud. I am the same way Diana...I almost lost myself in our Pre Kana class before we got married..I had to literally run out of the room because I was laughing out loud so LOUD. Too bad everyone dropped out, you could have had more stories.

Jettie said...

Na, she got a whole new show in a few weeks, and you shoulda been a fly on the wall. There is a book in there somewhere.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Too funny! I guess you could say it was a successfully unsuccessful couples counseling course! I bet that Lila was left scratching her head wondering where did this go wrong!! LOL...

Linda at French Hollow said...

There is a lesson in here... somewhere...I think...maybe.

Nope - just made me LOL. Thanks!

Beth said...

I love your posts!

The Refeathered Roost said...

I swear this sounds like it should be picked up by the writers of Modern Family. So funny!

Patty Patterson said...

I always knew counseling would be a total waste of time. And you just proved it! LOL I can't tell that anything was accomplished and that poor Joe even got hurt!

Celestina Marie said...

Diana, this was so funny. You truly know how to keep us on the edge of our seat. LOL
As for the counselor, she is probably talking to herself by now. She went insane~~~

Have a great weekend my friend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Suzan Sweatman said...

lol - hilarious Diana!!!

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

poor guy...I wonder if those couples are still together after all...but I doubt that

Lucille said...

An amusing experience though not for the angry ones. I think those who left are those who needed it the most. Anyways, I did get a few good laughs out of it but I only laughed when you laughed because that's when it was funny.

Tete said...

Did anyone check his back??? I think you should have switched with husbands! Both of the wise crackers should have been put together.
Fix MyHero? Bwahahahahaha.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

LOL! Now D, surely you know that there is no fixing that man at this stage. ;)
xo, Tina

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Well, this supports my reason for never going to couples counseling! We might not have made it 38 years if we had! Your wedding picture is just beautiful! You gave me a good chuckle (I did go back and read all the posts)!

Faye said...

Too funny! I read all the posts, I don't think you two needed it and besides, there is no changing them at our age. :)

Daniella said...

I knew it!! I said it to you yesterday!! You two would be the last couple standing!! or sitting. I too cracked up as soon as (i'm
lol-ing while writing this!) he said "could you please look at my back, she threw something at me".
I am serious, I am sitting here, alone, laughing my head off over that while typing!! Hopefully no one is watching me. They may try to have me committed!
xxD

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Diana, how funny. You make my day. Have a great weekend and hopefully you are getting better weather.
Mary

Donna said...

hahaha! Was Lila ever married herself? Somehow I get the feeling she never was! Maybe hubby and I should have gone to set the "good example", hahahaha!

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

So Funny!! All three sessions!!

Hugs,
Deb

Ellie VanCaster said...

Poor J-he certainly may benefit from more help ;-)
I'm afraid I'd be a giggler too.

Kelly said...

That is just too funny about how everyone left and noone got helped. Maybe the counselor now needs counseling herself!! LOL!

Merlesworld said...

Well that was fun,I guess it wasn't helpful at all.
Merle.....

Nellie said...

What funny stories! The sad thing, though, is that they accurately depict the relationships existing with many! I wonder if she is still working as a counselor. xo Nellie

Missy George said...

So funny..You are a great story teller..Count your blessings..

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

Maybe the 2 of you should start your own counseling for other couples! You could at least entertain them and get their minds off their troubles for awhile!!!! LOL!

Leslie said...

Ha! Yep.. This is how it goes. The perfect reality television show :)

DearHelenHartman said...

Loved the whole series - esp the photo of you and your hero when you were slightly more youthful! Oh, those couples, didn't they know the ones who laugh, last?

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

Oh Diana, she will never lack for couples looking for counseling! But I'm sure she will never forget you and your husband either! Congrats on a long, happy marriage!

Debbie

Shirley said...

Hi Diana, I will try again to leave you a comment. I laughed at your counseling sessions. I always wondering if the ones giving advice really know what they are talking about. Hope your day went well. Mine was not very productive that was for sure. Have a great day. Many Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Maureen said...

Now, my sister and I don't feel so bad about laughing all the way through our prenatal classes. Obviously, we were pregnant at the same time. Our instructor didn't find any of it humorous and we skipped the last 2 sessions. Your counselling sessions are hilarious! But then, I've been known to laugh at inappropriate things.

Kim @ La Belle Époque said...

I've never been much on counseling...now I know why! lol

Debby said...

Maybe you and the Pat. could start your own counseling sessions. You know how to clear a room. Make sure they pay up front for so many sessions.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Poor James, I wonder if they're still together?!?

camp and cottage living said...

Diana
Like I always say, "If it isn't broken, don't fix it"
That is the very reason I've never gone to one of those church marraige counseling sessions!

Nonnie said...

Some people swear by them. I guess the rest laugh!! Funny series. Xoxo

lynn said...

you tell the best stories, diana--and always with great humor:)!

pink*cherub*moon said...

Poor woman, sitting there waiting, cob webs all over her LOL! Too bad everyone left. It sounded like a lively group! LOL Hugs, Leena
