scenes from This Ludicrous Life: things I never expected to say

Your tongue should not be touching your brother’s face.

Why are there dry erase markers in the bathroom, you ask? You don’t want to know.

Hubby, you’ve mixed up my underwear and our daughter’s.

We are not using Satan as a character in stories, ok?

I am not interested in discussing your butt.

Oh cool! Fireball whiskey is only 100 calories!

scenes from This Ludicrous Life #3: The Sun Visor

I did not expect the happiness I would feel over a sun visor! For whatever reason, my 2006 vehicle needed a SECOND driver’s side sun visor replaced.  It was once again developing a single position choice, which was straight down and hitting you in the face.  Not so great for visibility.  During Round One of this problem, the body shop charged me $400 (yikes), claiming “cost of labor”.

So this time, hubby said he would fix it himself. He tapped around on his phone and told me the part would arrive soon. A little while ago he sauntered into the house and announced that he had successfully replaced the visor for $40! Awesome sauce! Then he proceeded to give me a cheesy grin and discuss how I could repay my debt to him….(Insert eye roll here.) And I thought the body shop had been the weasel!

Introducing The Cast: The Hubby

1) Hubby.

– Married 17 years and counting, together for more than 26.

– My best friend. Amazingly hard worker. Great at sharing parenting. Proud to be his wife.

– Can make me more lose-my-mind angry than anyone else on the planet. The Y chromosome is strong in this one.

– The day I fell in love with him: He took what I considered my character flaws and spun each around into something desirable. Wow, most romance novels aren’t that good!

– Keeps hoping that I will sprout longer legs and a housekeeping compulsion. Sorry, guy.

– Definitely carries one of the genes that gave our children a flare for the dramatic. And he isn’t afraid to use it.

– The man’s as stubborn as a stone, and just as likely as a stone to be listening if the TV is on.
