Mine!

Al said...

Damn! Minka, you are every bit as slippery as the real estate in your home country!

But, on the bright side, you gave me my definition: First place is hers!

al said...

And Hers: Something the White House has never been.

(yet.)

FelineFrisky said...

This is tougher that one thinks. Hmmmm. I'm coming up empty, other than the obvious definition. Grrrr. More caffeine. Will be back. D

Minka said...

al, *snickering*
I am every bit my name promises and more! But it was a good race...you make a lovely loser :)

Oh...and as backwards as my country might be, we already had a female president. Those were the times, just sayin'!

Al said...

And that's OK, Minka, because Iceland doesn't have nukes.

("Lovely loser" - HA! :)

Solace Cai said...

his and hers matching pajamas? Wow, sorry. I just don't have a good definition.

puppybrose said...

uneaten? good one.

and Al, regarding your "White House, yet" remark? *claps*

as much as i like this word, i, um... i'm at a loss. (i'm sure i'll get over it, given enough time and/or caffeine.)

cj said...

Hers: When the husband starts explaining the contents of our home. "Ah I don't know its all hers." :)

Miz BoheMia said...

Dammit! Minka got mine! Ha!

I guess it makes it hers then...

QuillDancer said...

Hers, anything that was his but now needs to be cleaned.

puppybrose said...

hers: effective accusation, especially when accompanied by much pointing of fingers. [see also: "whose turn is it to do the dishes?", "whose lipstick got mixed in with the laundry?", and/or "whose birth control pills are these?"]

(what can i say, i grew up with 2 sisters)

Mistress Anna said...

So true.
It's hers only when she notices he has taken it.

Anomie-Atlanta said...

Hers: All of her own and at least half of all assets gained during marriage.

karma said...

Douglas, I promise you I am edible and you wouldn't have to go to the His toilet later

caagfonk: come get my fonk a-ha a-ha

Joel said...

Hers: Always the nicer of the two.

G said...

Hers: Make life easy on yourself...

Joel said...

Come and knock on our door.....
We've been waiting for you......
Where the kisses are hers and hers and his,
Three's company too.

mireille said...

The long limousine-y type vehicle that carries the casket. Oh. That's hearse. xoxo

Jenna Howard said...

When I point at something that I want in an expensive jewellry store. The correct response for anyone with me is: "Hers." Yep. MINE.

Mo'a said...

Hers: being first. His: insomnia??? awake, at 4:00AM having a conversation with Her. Hers the joke, it is 8:00AM Her time.

Sophisticated Writer said...

I have a fuzzy brain today, Doug. I will skip that one. And read my post titled "Nine weird things about me". I tagged you, too. Let me see you more often on my blog, dear friend.

Doug said...

Haha, Minka. Sure enough.

Al, I'm not so sure about your second point. One regime ago it was theirs (fem.)

Diane, we'll be here. Take the time to make it how you like it.

Minka, I'm not surprised. Scandinavian countries seem to be pretty open. I guess we know why vikings built boats.

Solace, no need to apologize. This is a tough one.

Puppybrose, all the time and coffee you wish is yours.

You have a smart husband, CJ. I'm not surprised.

Miz B, I'm pretty sure you have yours.

Quill, whoever blinks first. My brethren and I do win 9 out of 10 that way.

That's funny, Mistress Anna. Not that much changes between 3 and thirty, does it?

Karma, if you aren't spoiled you should be.

Joel, it's like that with lawns, too.

G, sure enough.

Joel, you channel the funniest TV.

It's a fine line, Mireille.

It's the safest response too, Jenna.

Mo'a, time zones always make someone a laugher and someone a laughee. That's why the Earth spins.

I'll look for it SW. Thanks for letting me know you posted.

Old Mule said...

Hers: What you really want.

brrr...cold here in South Carolina

QuillDancer said...

Hers -- the greatest amount of purchases and the smallest portion of the bill.

brian said...

Hers: are dangerous curves.
Hers: are slippery when wet.
Hers: are starring at SeaWorld, hence best uneaten.

Jake said...

Hers = Hearse

Tan Lucy Pez said...

If not for her and all the other hers in the world, all your money and all your dreams would be for nothing.

Her, God's do over after His unfortunate him faux pas.

Diesel said...

A word used to identify the cleaner and less practical of two items.

puppybrose said...

hers: more than one her.

QuillDancer said...

Yay! TLP -- you've got it!

Jenna Howard said...

Before the woman at work got fired we could honestly say all mistakes were hers. Now that she's been canned...all mistakes are...um...not mine.

puppybrose said...

Hers: default setting

now Quilly, TLP is close, but her definition should have read: "Her, God's do over after HER unfortunate him faux pas" in order to be completely correct. (sorry TLP, i lovelovelove you, but you know i'm right about this!) xox

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Well, Okay Puppy. I guess you're right. But I just thought that if God were a female, she would have done a better job in the first place. It's difficult to imagine that a female God made men so that they stood up to pee. What was she thinkin'?

Mutha said...

Hers (by my mother): what fell on the floor, or was burnt, or fell apart -- but is still "good."

Hers (by my grandmother): what he doesn't know won't hurt him.

Hers (my definition): what is unfamiliar to the rest of the household (I live with two small and one large man)

Now be good brothers and sisters and come cheer on my National Novel Writing Month effort...please? *sniff*

puppybrose said...

amen, TLP. (what the heck was I thinking? of *course* you're right!) xox

Doug said...

Mule, you should have thought of that before you used the fluffy towel.

As it should be, Quill.

Brian, you lost me a little at the end.

Jake, see Mireille above.

TLP, that's not much money or many dreams but, thanks!!

Good one, Diesel.

Cute, Puppybrose.

Jenna, you should buy a mouse.

Puppy and TLP, I'll leave the sheology in your hands.

Mutha, be right over. Your mother sounds like a saint and your grandmother quite a character.

tsduff said...

Hers: the side of the bed which becomes crowded.

Anonymous said...

The first four letters in HERSHEY!

The chocolate's hers. (Hey! hers.)

Jake said...

So it was hers first. A fitting mistake at least? Please accept my sincerest apologies Mireille. How John Kerry of me! Doug, thank you for your genteel reproof.

Tom & Icy said...

What's hers is hers and what's his is hers and what's theirs is mine!

Sar said...

Hers is a late comment lacking in substance, wit, and creativity.

cindra said...

Hers: Everything.

Anonymous said...

Hers to ya!

Kyahgirl said...

hi Doug :-)
nothing to add. is all the food gone?

Doug said...

Haha, Terry. That one tickled me.

Actonbell, it's often the case and everywhere there's a wise husband.

Absolutely Jake. As you so often do, you got it wrong just right.

Help y'self, Ice!

Sar, but not in welcomeness.

Sure, Cindra. You aren't the only with a BS detector.

Hers to you, too, Karen!

Kyah, I put some meatballs aside for you.

SquareGirl said...

The longer line.

Logophile said...

Hers,
as it pertains to the matter of assigning fault~ everything

as it pertains to the assignment of credit~ nothing

Logophile said...

HA!
and I even made it on the same day, score!

Indeterminacy said...

Hers: Anything she wants.


(surprised no one said this one yet - what happened to chivalry?)

I like Puppybrose's definitions.

Doug said...

Squarefirl, I leave it to you to come up with the first rate geometrical joke.

Nicely done, Logo! The day is yours.

Indie, we were waiting for a married man to come along.

Hers:
Everything in this house is technically "hers," as it is paid for by me, a female.
However, in reality, very little in this house is "hers," except for my clothing, and that's only because my son can't/doesn't want to wear it. He snatches everything else up: food, CD's that I have bought, you name it.
But if you want to really get technical about it, we are both slaves to our pets.
And so much of my paycheck goes to the government.
So really, in one way or another, everything but my clothing is "theirs."
