Here snake-y, snake-y.

Again, I wish I could draw.  This would be much more amusing if I could turn it into a comic.  Here’s more character interaction.

 

Husband:  (while attempting to fix an overflowing toilet)  “Honey!  Honeeyyy!”

Wife:  “Yes, dear.  Hands full, uh?” chuckling to self

H:  “Go out back and grab the snake for me, please?  I don’t want to track water through the house.”

W(thinking – snake?!?) “Um, sure.  Just out back, uh?”

H:  “Yep!  Look in the shed, and please hurry.”

W(quickly arming herself for battle – rain boots, pot as hat, and broom in one hand and butterfly net in the other – outside murmuring to herself)

“How in the world is a snake going to help the plumbing??  Is there a mouse down the drain?!?  I know I said ’til death do us part….” pauses in mid-stride “I should check to see if he recently took out a large insurance policy under my name!”

focusing back on task – “Here snake-y, snake-y.” *clap clap* “HEREE snake-y, snake-y!” *clap clap*

whispering, “PLEASSEE don’t come.”

Back inside, “I clapped and everything, but no snake.  Oh well.”  voice goes up a few octaves  “And, how did you think I was supposed to catch him anyways, mister?!?  Wrangling would have been more like it!  And, have you made any recent calls to our insurance agent??”

H:  “What?!?  Hey calm down, I don’t know what you – Ohhhhh….. Hahahaha!”

W: “Hey, what’s so funny?!?”

H:  “Hahaha!”

W:  “Stop it! Besides, you’re practically peeing yourself next to a non-functioning toilet.  There’s just something wrong with this picture.”

Hstill laughing.  “I’m sorry.  The tool, honey.  It’s a tool!  The tool is called a snake.”

W:  “Ohhhh!  Ok, well good luck with that.”  shrugs shoulders and leaves  to call a plumber, while husband is left to do what husband does best; break things.

 

In my head I had imagined a more modern episode of “I Love Lucy”  and I love how that humor still lives on.

About Heather.B

I'm a thirty-something (how did I get so old?!) esthetician (Jan 2009), soon-to-add holistic services (Jan 2013), and then onto business school with a few more endeavors in the works. Stayed tuned though as this changes often. I call it "what-to-be-when-I'm-a-grown-up ADD" - but here's a great quote of encouragement if you're similar in nature: “The experience of centering was one I particularly sought because I thought of myself as dispersed, interested in too many things. I envied people who were ‘single-minded,’ who had one powerful talent and who knew when they got up in the morning what it was they had to do. Whereas I, wherever I turned, felt the enchantment: to the window for the sweetness of the air; to the door for the passing figures; to the teapot, the typewriter, the knitting needles, the pets, the pottery, the newspaper, the telephone. Wherever I looked I could have lived. It took me half my life to come to believe I was okay even if I did love experience in a loose and undiscriminating way and did not know for sure the difference between good and bad. My struggles to accept my nature were the struggles of centering.” – [from Centering in Pottery, Poetry, and the Person by Mary Caroline Richards] I'm a lover of animals (especially my bird and cat), my niece and nephew (and #3 on HER way), and plants; an avid crochet-er (and other crafty things), amateur photographer, baker extraordinaire, dreamer of travels far away (camping and road trips settle me for now), searcher of different music, and beloved daughter of The King. Add in a penchant for being taught new things, and you've got a good idea of what you're dealing with here. I, also, have an endocrine disorder (PCOS) that causes me to have a low carb diet and an insatiable appetite for holistic health (along with a big butt) - I console myself with the reminder that there are worse things, like being eaten by an alligator. Lastly, I've found I get bored easily and procrastinate like it's my job. So who knows how steadily I'll contribute to this. Welcome! If you choose to read this, I've warned you fairly ;), and I really hope you enjoy the variety of my life. Please send me a note and let me know about you!
