Husband Loses His Camera Privileges for Good

Scene: A beautiful Fall day at the Pumpkin Patch with Little Guy and Husband. We're all feeling happy to have found this great pumpkin patch complete with two petting zoos, a treehouse play area, hay rides, and a caramel apple stand. The weather is gorgeous. It's the kinda day that's perfect for taking pictures.

Me: Husband, do you think you can take some pictures of me and Little Guy while we walk around?

Husband: Sure.

Me: Can you just make sure that when you take the pictures, you get my whole head in the shot?

Husband: Of course!

Me: Well, it's just that you have this habit of cutting off my head when you take pictures of me and Little Guy and it's really annoying.

Husband: Don't worry. I said I'd get some good pictures of you.

Me: OK, we're going to walk towards the petting zoo now. Can you get some candids of us with the animals? I don't really want to pose or anything.

Husband: Sure.

Three minutes go by.

Husband (rushing up to me with the camera): I got the shot! I got the shot!

Me: You didn't cut my head off did you?

Husband (holding out camera to me): Just look!

Husband: Isn't that cool?! Those two goats were getting it on!

Me: *speechless*

That's too funny!! You got a winner there! As my 6 y/o son would ask "why is that goat on top of the other goat Mommy?" My reply would be "I think they are fighting darling."

For the long term, it's probably just as well to be married to a guy with a sense of humor! I assume you're getting that one framed for the mantel?
