Nearly every time that Andrew is sitting in the living room and I’m washing my hands or a dish in the kitchen sink, I sprinkle a little water his way. He looks at me with the most perturbed look on his face, to which I’m looking at the ceiling as if I’m expecting rain. It never works, of course, but it makes us both laugh.

“me: “Hello, cat. You know, I am able to use the restroom by myself.” cat: “NUUU, you need supervision. LET ME IN!” *puts paw under door and bodyslams into it when I do lock him out* “I HEAR WATER! Don’t fall in!” and if I do let him in: *stands there for two seconds and then wants out again* me: “Was that all?” cat: “Perimeter secure.”

Someone was banging something in their vehicle outside the window.
Andrew: “What was that?”
Me, sounding confident I knew what I was talking about: “The cat.”
I love that it took Andrew a moment to consider that. “Wait, what? It is not!”

Friend and I were talking about Chris’ lack of articulation before coffee in the morning. “Coffee good, coffee, yes.” I teased, “Can you imagine Chris at work without coffee?” (She works at a web development firm.) “Firewall, BAADD!”

*listens to the neighbor outside* Yes, that’s exactly what you do, when the car doesn’t start the first ten times, lean on the starter for five whole minutes…

On the topic of a new Facebook game based on Dirty Dancing: Finally, a game where I can not only farm watermelons, but carry them around. *snickers*

I found a window seat on the bus when getting back home from grocery shopping. A petite woman sat next to me in the aisle side, and when it was my turn to get off, she scooched her legs over, necessitating me to fall over her with my load of groceries to get off the bus. The bus wasn’t even crowded, she just didn’t feel like standing to let me out.

Awesome: The temperature climbing 13 degrees while riding the bus to the grocery store. Awesomer: The person next to you refusing to stand so that you can get off said bus. I had to literally fall into the aisle to get to the door. lol

Hobbits are to food as Andrew is to naps. LOL

pointing out the obvious

Andrew: “What are we dining on for dinner?”
Me, deadpan: “Food, probably.”
He looked off into the distance and licked his lips, wondering how he fell into that one. “What’s the weather going to be like?” was his next question.
Me: “It’ll be light, followed by a period of dark. Tomorrow, it will be light again.”
He shooed me out of the room, laughing.
