Crackers and Crans

I have been married for almost ten years and still it amazes me when I learn something new about my husband.. Yesterday my boys were arguing over crayons… This is the conversation that ensued……

BOYS: That’s my crayon. That’s mine. (SCREAMING SLAPPING SOUNDS..ETC)
Hubby: You better stop that right now and put all those crans in the box
ME: What?
Hubby: I told them to put the crans in the box.
Me: What the hell are crans?
Hubby: You know crans
Me: Do you mean cray-ons..(I emphasized the ons part) Where are you from ??
Hubby: What?
Me: Have you always pronounced crayons like that?
Hubby:Like what?
Me: Like slurry like crans..your missing a whole syllable
Hubby: I don’t know what your talking about. I’ve always said crans..

Now I ran to the phone to call my sister Beth.  She and I laughed hysterically for about five minutes.. We decided Hubby’s new nickname is crans.. (Ironically my family loves making nicknames for people. Her husbands nickname is Uncle Cracker=LONG STORY... KIDS MADE IT UP)

Phone rings ..its my sister..
Is Crans there?? Cracker wants to talk to him…LOL!!!!!

LOl. That's good though it keeps the marriage fresh when you can leanr new things about your spouse. As long as those new things are good things. LOL

i love it! the best part is I can only imagine the fun you had laughing about it. I've heard people pronounce it that way before, but it doesn't make it any less funny!
My husband says 'far-head' instead of weird. But me? I say 'draw' for drawer.

Michelle said...

Funny! Can definitely relate. My DH is VERY country..for example, when he says "head" and "Hey, Ed!" they sound the same. This is just one of thousands of laughs I get on him!

Really enjoy your blog and have started to follow. I'm new to the blogging world... BRAND new. Check me out at

Lmao "crans"!!! Seriously? i would have laughed at him too.

I have an "uncle cracker" he got his nickname because he used to get free boxes of crackers from work and give them to us! I miss those he's a boring old bus driver lol.
