Good morning! There are few things in this world that feel as good as being able to look someone in the eye and utter that one, single phrase, “I told you so, jackass!” (What? I am I the only one that adds the “jackass” part? Huh…)
Me: “Honey, don’t feed the dog that stuff. He’ll just throw it up.”
Hubby: “No he won’t. And look, he LOVES it!”
Some hours later at bedtime…
Hubby: “Hey, honey? What IS that!?!” Said while pointing at “pile” of “stuff” directly in the middle of HIS side of the bed.
Me: “Umm…THAT would be what you fed the dog at the table.” Looks at hubby innocently while batting eyes in a demur manner. “I’m so sorry sweetie, but I GOTTA say it.” *dramatic pause for effect and to give his dread sufficient time to build* “I told you so, jackass!”
I admit, I giggled all the way to the kitchen for cleaning supplies. And the fact that I was the one who had to clean up the “stuff” only blunted my joy a tiny bit. (Yeah, he’s a sympathetic horker. *insert mild grumbling*)
OK, TOTALLY switching gears, I am in the midst of developing a plan. Oh yeah, it’s gonna be a GOOD one…or a total catastrophe, (which would TOTALLY be just as awesome!) Want to hear it? Too bad, I’m sharing anyway.
|OK, perhaps I should take the|
whole "dance" thing off the table...
I’m honestly not into the numbers and all that happy stuff, because really? It’s all technical and I’m severely tech-impaired. But every day when I post, I have a bunch of numbers on my dashboard displayed for my viewing confusion. One number that jumped out at me last week was the whole “total views” thing…(which I’ve been told isn’t exactly the actual total views, but that’s not the point here.)
I just about swallowed my tongue when I hit 16,000…and that was when I made what may be a horrendous decision. When the rolling counter hits 20,000, I’m gonna do a video post. With sound and everything! That’s right, I’ll let you guys see exactly what kind of moron I truly am!
The Boomerang Kid happen to have a video recorder (with sound) but neither of us have any editing software, so this could either be an amazingly, freakin’ awesome idea, or a screw-up of epic proportions! Either way? It should be FUN!
So, now all I need to figure out is what kind of video thing to do? The whole “sitting and speaking” thing, break the Shakira back out and do my (hip) break dance, or possible twirl my cane like a majorette. Do the thing in my jammies, hoodie, and ball cap like I write every morning or, ya know…shower and brush my hair first.
What do you guys think? Good idea? BAD idea? Any requests or suggestions on what you DON’T want to see? *giggles with too much coffee and child-like excitement* Perhaps a Zombie-shuffle, interpretive dance number…
I guess I really need to figure out how to use the friggin’ camera first…and bribe one of the offspring into manning it for me…Details, details.
May your day be filled with at least one chance to prove you were right (just because it leaves you with that happy, glowing/gloating feeling) and hopefully some creative suggestions on just how I can maximize the idiot-potential that’s currently lying dormant inside a basement dwelling digital camera…Happy Monday y’all!
