Who forgot the kitchen sink?

Earlier in the week:

Shan: Sure, it’s fun for you guys. You don’t pack anything. I get to count underwear and hot dog rolls.

DH: It’ll be easy this time. It’s just a short trip, and you guys won’t be riding. Quitcher bitchin.


Can-can ring tone…

DH: You ARE bringing the TV and the DVD player, right? It’s supposed to rain part of tomorrow. And all the movies.

Can-can ring tone…

DH: Are you bringing swim trunks for all of us? Just in case it gets warm enough for the pool?

Shan: No. High of 60, lots of showers.

DH: Just pack a pair each, in case.

Shan: And towels and noodles and the short kid’s life jacket and the tall kid’s goggles and the pool toys and…

DH: Quitcher bitchin

Can-can ring tone…

DH: Did you grab the soft bag for the Quad? And my goggles and my helmet and my gloves and…oh, the air compressor and that tire puncture kit I bought, and make sure you’ve got my rain gear…and my boots, and extra socks, and…

Shan: I :censor: have all of it, and if you :censor: call me again, I will :censor: shove your :censor: phone up your :censor: :censor:, you :censor: :censor: :censor:

DH: Yeah, yeah.

Can-can ring tone…

DH: Did you go to Walmart yet to get that little stepladder? While you’re there get one of those yard bug foggers, and I need…crap, another call. I’ll call you back.

I. Hate. The. Can-can.
