The Perfect Marriage Tool

I have to admit, I am completely enamoured with the chalkboard thought bubble.  I decided, after using it for our photo session, to take it over to our friend's place for the evening.   We get together every once in awhile to watch Nascar (well, Brad and Helmut watch Nascar, Nichole and I chat and eat!) and, as it turns out, the bubble was even more fun when:

1) you use it indoors and don't freeze your fingers off trying to write something and
2) when you use it as a communication tool!

Helmut started it all with this:


because I asked him to get the chalk bubble from the van! And that kicked it off for the evening!

We decided that the chalkboard would be the best marriage tool ever! You could write whatever you wanted, without fear of repercussion and it was HILARIOUS! I really think we could have entire conversations with these things!


Helmut and Nichole are behind that statement.


Brad and I disagree.


It can be used to convey promises. (By the way, Brad is THE MAN, because he delivered on this promise...on his BIRTHDAY no less!)


It can be used like Twitter when your Wi-Fi signal drops.




It can be used over and over to emphasize your message.


or to keep a running tally on your drinks for the evening. 

Thanks for the great evening guys and for helping to perfect the use of the greatest marriage tool ever!
