God forbid I casually mention I might make a roast beef for supper and then end up making hamburgers
He acts completely perplexed -
" I don't understand - I thought you were making a roast beef " ???????????
Or if I say I'd like to go to a movie - and then change my mind and want to stay in and read a book - again he'll stand in front of me baffled
" I don't understand - I thought you wanted to see a movie" ???????????
I purchased this cast iron plaque from Amazon - to put on the garden gate. ( 7.99 I believe )
and had it on the kitchen counter to bring outside - it didn't quite make it out the door - but rather ON the door
John says - I don't understand - I thought you bought this to put on the gate?
Suzan says - You know John - some thing's are just mysteries - they're not meant to be understood.............
Suzan says - It would be like trying to figure out how they built the pyramids -
Suzan says - It would be like trying to figure out how the great gardens of Babylon started
Suzan says - It would be like
John interrupts - Are you saying you're one of the wonders of the world?
John says - IT SAYS WELCOME - NOT GOOD-BYE !!!!!
Suzan says - Shhhh - it's ok John - everything is ok - don't worry about it so much
I didn't clarify that this is a door we ENTER from the back yard - it's just too complicated - you know - like the pyramids
Later that day
Suzan says - OMG ! What are you doing?
John says I'm cutting back all this crap from the walk way ( in the back )
Suzan says - But you're throwing it out???????????? ( as he tosses them into a bin )
Suzan says - Are you crazy ?
John says - Why? You have plans for these? You going to build a jungle for your fairy houses?
John says - They're not even flowers - you take things too far
John says - I like them in the vases - good idea - but what is the key for? I don't get it?
He has no idea that THAT particular key will unlock all the mysteries in the world - he just has to remove it - rub it on his head - turn around 3 times very quickly - hop on one foot 5 times - hop on the other - scream out loud " Everything Suzan does is awesome " 6 times...............
But I'm not going to tell him because I like the key on the vase and don't want him to remove it.
And speaking of mysteries does anyone know what this is? My girlfriend gave it to me ( well actually I begged her for it when visiting )
She guessed a sugar dish
I guessed a butter dish
But it could be a place that Royalty used to use to store their false teeth overnight for all I know
The dome closes - to keep sugar clean? To keep butter clean? To keep false teeth hidden?
Whatever it is - it's lovely - and it's mine !!!
UPDATE: THIS IS ACTUALLY A BUTTER/CAVIAR DISH !!!
( dahlink I love you but give me Park Avenue )
Have a wonderful Monday everyone
The weather network says today is going to be a " bright - bright - bright sunshiny day " ( so I'll be able to see clearly now ) ♪♫♪
