Try not to notice the lack of content

I’m saving it for tomorrow’s RTB column.

In lieu of anything deep and profound (which you didn’t really expect to find here anyway, did you?) I offer some tidbits of recent conversation at Casa Stacey:

Me: Get out of my mouth! (I said this at least three times during the wee hours of last night. I changed mouthwash brands and both of my kitties are fascinated by the new citrus tingle.)


Hubby: Where is that quacking sound coming from?
Tall Kid: The dog.


Short Kid: Why do dogs and cats lick their pee-pees?
Me and Hubby at same time: Because they can.
(Umm…discussion of pets, lack of opposable thumbs and hygiene discussion did follow.)


Hubby: My four-wheeler won’t be done in time for this weekend, so I’m probably going to have to ride yours.
Me: And I’ll ride………?
Hubby: I thought I’d take the kids out of your hair and give you some time to write.


How generous of him, no?

    Or just ALONE time. God, I’d kill for some alone time… :baby:

    OMG, me too. Writing time? Quiet? dude. I’d be soooo all over that.

    Okay, y’all get that he’s trying to steal my Rincon, right? MY Rincon, so he can play in the mud without me.
