NoW I think the only reason she is mad is due to thr fact I couldn't give an explanation on what it meant... Doing what most swmbo's do, she expected this a bad term... Second, was proably because I found out why use a blow off tube... Beer everywhere!!! Walls, ceiling, and of coarse the floor.. Ceiling, I know WTF.. She was even more pissed when I said.. " the beer is doin great"

What does the definition mean to you guys?

Welcome to the world of homebrewing, where we well know how it feels to mop a ceiling!

I feel like Jeff Foxworthy, "If you've ever mopped a ceiling.............you may be a homebrewer!"

its normal for your swmbo to be mad. thats the nature of the beast. your best option is to hid for a while, then come out when she's focused on oprah

That's the worst noob attempt at getting us to divulge what SWMBO means that I've ever seen!

LMAO!!!

"If you hear "smash" and think SMaSH.... you might be a homebrewer..."

"If you walk through the produce section of the supermarket and can only think of how each item would be in a brew... you might be a homebrewer..."

There has to be more...

BTW, I didn't mop the ceiling... yet.. But I did need to clean up the spray that hit it (and me) when I hit the ball in a Sanke spear... Once is enough there... Luckily, it only covered about a 4' diameter section of the ceiling... Although I do see how it hit the blinds (the curtain was pulled that day) and some of the window edge...

*This is an expression used from time to time by the barrister Horace Rumpole in John Mortimer's Rumpole of the Bailey stories, to apply to his wife Hilda.

Bob sometimes refers to me as SWMBO when he talks to the dog.

Like this, "Well, Toby, I'd give you two more treats but SWMBO wouldn't like it". Hahahaha.

About a year ago, I was dating a Colombian girl. One day, I made a comment, and she, of course, chose to interpret it the worst possible way, and made a scene about it. I proceeded to send her to hell on the spot, and immediately got my stuff and took off.

She still calls me from time to time.

Of course, she wasn't my wife. Otherwise I would've kicked her out of the house.
