Another Late Night Encounter with Nature…. the Battle Continues

It’s late at night.
I’m sitting at my desk working diligently (aka cruising Facebook…) and out of the corner of my eye I spy a movement on the desk.
I watch in horror as he walks along the edge of the desk.
Only inches away from me.
As if he doesn’t have a care in the world.
No, he didn’t just walk, he sauntered!
He swaggered! As if to say, “Ha! I terrify you! And I’m too big to kill! So there!”

My first reaction is a combination of fear and disgust.
I’m so close to him I can see the hair on his legs!
I think of waking Husband but that seems too sissy.
I consider letting him continue on his way, but then I’d know he was OUT THERE…..SOMEWHERE and that idea is just too disturbing.
So I gather up my courage, reach for a napkin and lunge!

I run to the bathroom and shake him out of the napkin into the toilet…..because I have this compulsive need to see that he’s actually THERE. I need to watch him circle the porcelain sea and disappear into the abyss.
I flush three times….just to be sure he doesn’t don his SCUBA gear and work his way back up the pipes.

As I settle back down in my chair triumphant in the knowledge that, once again, the balance of nature is intact....................

I observe a trail of little spots across the desk….…..he was so big he left footprints in the desk blotter!

Punny Monday

A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

All About That Bass……

I might be the only person on the planet who would spend an entire afternoon printing and cutting out faces, gluing them to Popsicle sticks and then propping them on a cardboard box to photograph just to make a pun about a popular song……..

But here it is………

This is my new favorite song of ALL time!!!
Meghan Trainor  (you have to sit through a commercial, but trust me it is soooo worth it!)

Now.......having seen the reference.......

♪♫♪♫ I'm all about that face ♪♫♪♫

I Dreamed…………..

Last night I dreamed my mother called me from ‘heaven’ or wherever it is you go when you die.
She said, “Get up! You’re going to be late!”
I realized the call was something special and I started crying.  
I said, “Is it really you? Can we do this again” I miss you! Did you get to see Uncle Bill?”
(My uncle just died a few weeks ago.)
She said yes she saw her brother and no we can’t do this again.
Then I woke up.
And there were real tears running down my cheeks.
I wondered what it was I was going to be late for and looked at the clock…......it read 8:11…..........
my mother’s birthday.

*Sometimes I wonder if I should share these things. I imagine you think I’m weird enough without these little insights into my psyche……  LOL
