Something occurred to me today. There is a new implement that has been acquired that has been forgotten by him. As I write this, it is sitting on the floor of my car in the back row of seats (sadly, I drive a minivan when I would rather drive a big ass truck). How could he forget? Easy. We had a very busy dad this week that involved my errands and a friends errands we drove her to. It just so happened I had to stop by the place I bought my mattress from and my friend going to pay for a new bed for herself. Well, as we were walking out of the mattress store Jim spotted something.
I didn't want to follow and continued walking to the car. I opened the car door and looked at him coming out of the mattress store with a huge grin that expressed his pleasure in what had caught his attention.
I see for some mind-blowing coincidence the mattress store is giving away 3 foot wooden yardsticks. My eyes grow with shock and a little anger at the sheer dumb luck of finding his new toy at the friggin mattress store! I mean come on!
By this time my friend comes out of the store and says "Hey, where did you get that?" He tells her and she then runs back into to claim her find. She is happy because she found some useless item the was free.
He is happy because he is envisioning the slap of the yard stick against my bare skin. And all I can think is please do not let one of them make a joke about swatting an ass (yes, it could happen we joke often).
So here I sit, knowing that sucker is in the car and he has forgotten about it, until now. You see he has just read this over my shoulder and now remembers the new toy. Perhaps, he will wait but it is more than likely that yardstick will be in this house before the sun goes down.
Also, I would like to know how the one mattress store I chose to go to, is the only one in the world giving away 3 foot yardsticks!
