I’ve been slathering both of my elbows with lotion on a daily basis for the last week, and they still have dandruff. What’s with that?
I know I’ve always been a little flaky, but this is just too much.
Saturday, Beloved and I went to the locally nursery to pick up a couple of houseplants. The man is so optimistic – we have all of one houseplant I haven’t managed to kill yet. But, we picked out a pink polka dot plant, a chocolate drop plant, a lovely ivy and some huge purple thing that we can’t decide where to put it.
Sunday he left for Louisiana for a week, leaving me to care for it all.
“Well,” he said, “that’s what you get for not killing the dog.”
Well, he has a point there.
Beloved came home from Home Depot recently with a bag of male goodies and a bemused look on his face. Rifling through the bag, I saw that he’d purchased a new nozzle for the garden hose out front. Which, frankly, thrilled me because the old one leaked like a sieve and every time I had to water the plants out front I ended up looking like a reject from a wet t-shirt contest.
I commented on the new nozzle, which is just like the one on the garden hose out back, and his bemused expression became more pronounced.
“Yeah,” he said. “I settled on that one; does anyone really need seven therapeutic massage settings on their garden hose?”
We were getting ready for work the other morning, when Beloved asked me, “What’s shakin’, bacon?”
Hmmm…probably not the best choice of words when speaking to your wife.
“Did you just call me bacon?”
“Uh….yeah. But I LIKE bacon, bacon is GOOOOOOD.”
Uh-huh. Nice save, even if it did have a slight edge of desperation.
I was going through some old papers and such the other day, when I ran across an old homework assignment of The Young One’s from 5th or 6th grade. He was given several words that could be used as both a noun and verb, and he was to use each in a sentence. Here are a couple of examples:
Duck! There’s a flying robotic duck on the loose!
Hand over me hand, you scallywag!!
Okay, I’m ready for him to come home now…
