The argument…

Posted: April 14, 2015 in other

“So what are you doing?”

“Good grief, can’t you see what I am doing? I am running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.”

“did you get the vacuuming done yet?” How about the potatoes on to boil?”

NO!…I haven’t, but I will…It will be done in time!”

The potatoes are boiling! I even put a wooden spoon on top of the pan so they don’t boil over!”

“Well…that’s good…at least for once you are thinking ahead….”

“I always think ahead!” “You should know that!” You’ve lived with me long enough to know that not only DO I THINK AHEAD….I run every scenario known to man before I am finished with the task at hand.”

“Wow…you are a little testy today…”

REALLY? Whatever gave you that idea? Right now all I want to do is get the potatoes boiled, manage a shower, and clean off the table.” I have no idea how so much junk accumulates on that table!

When will they be here?

About 4:00 this afternoon….

It will be awesome to see them, won’t it?

Yes, yes, it will….” “It has to have been 10 years or thereabouts since they were here last.”

“Yea, I know…

“I just want everything to be clean and neat and peaceful when they arrive!”

“I am so excited!

“Yea, Me too….” and whether everything is just right or not,” “it will be Okay!”

“OH WOW” “I really do have to quit talking to myself like this…” It’s even worse when there is an argument.”

“No Kidding!” “I got that!”

“So have you managed that shower?”

“aaaahhhh …NO…Where is your brain?”…Waiting, waiting, waiting…for the potatoes to be done…”

“So go, check the potatoes…just get’er done!”

“going, going, going” Hmmpf! “Sheesh!” “Just leave me alone!”

  2. Yes…this reminds me more of my mother-in-law than myself but sometimes I do find myself emulating her in such ways.
