That’s What SHE Said

One of the great pleasures I get out of my relationship with Sunshine is that we share a tremendous joy in “that’s what SHE said” jokes.

For those unfamiliar with this gloriously immature guilty pleasure, here is its definition (one of many, I might add) as explained by the Urban Dictionary:

“A statement used to draw attention to a phrase that could possibly be interpreted as sexual innuendo.”

For those of you who may not still “get it”, let me provide another example:

My friend and I were talking about being able to draw when we were younger.

“I used to be really good with my hands, but now I just suck.”

“That’s what SHE said.”

See?? Can you not just feel my joy???

Listen, there are times when it’s completely inappropriate to say it, but I’m at a  point in my life where I’m finding myself being unable to control my mouth from even whispering the words under my breath.

It’s happening at work when trying to plug an overhead projector into a laptop…

“Nothing’s happening…maybe I should push it in harder.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when I order a pizza…

“Would you like a 12-inch?”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when I parallel park my car…

“Jeez…that’s a pretty tight fit.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when I’ve got a runny nose…

“I’m blowing and blowing and nothing comes out.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when I put on my seatbelt…

“I’m having a hard time sticking it in.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening at work again…

“At least you’re staying on top of things.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when friends or family drop by for a visit sooner than expected…

“You came so fast, I didn’t have time to prepare.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when I try new food…

“Is it supposed to taste this bad?”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening in Star Wars…

“Luke, at that speed do you think you’ll be able to pull out in time?”

“That’s what SHE said!”

It’s happening when a friend talks about her new piercing…

“It doesn’t hurt to take it out, but it hurts to put it back in.”

“That’s what SHE said!”

Okay…that last one wasn’t real.

As you can tell, I love this joke. I don’t care how immature it is. I don’t care how lame it is. I don’t care how played-out it is. It makes me laugh and giggle like a little kid every time I say it (or hear somebody else say it).

Surely I’m not alone in my childish joy. Surely other couples have similar nonsensical things that are “just theirs” and brings them closer together, regardless of how silly it may seem. I can’t be that difficult to find something that brings a couple closer together.

I mean…it can’t be hard, can it?

THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!!
