Totally random mish-mash of stuff because there's just so much I wanna share!
ACTUAL CONVERSATION THIS WEEK BETWEEN MR. AND MRS. MANIC
Or the Alternate Title:
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS IN THE MANIC HOUSE
You know how sometimes you’re out of cash and you need some, and instead of going to the ATM, you just go into your husband’s wallet because it’s easier, and well, because it’s there for the takin’?
Well, I needed some cashola the other night, and being the considerate spouse I am, I left hubby a loving note in his wallet that said:
I LOVE YOU! I TOOK $50.
That night, at dinner, I said:
“Did you get the note that I took $50?”
Mr. Manic: “Yes.”
Me: “Hope that was OK.”
Mr. Manic: “Sure.” Pause. “Did you get my note?”
Me: “Your note? What note?”
Mr. Manic: “The one I put in your wallet?”
Visions of a note professing his undying love and gratitude ensue.
Me: “No. What did it say?”
Mr. Manic: “It said, I LOVE YOU! I TOOK $40.”

ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF TUKEY TALK
And that says TUKEY, not TURKEY.
How many of you read TURKEY?...
Tukey, heading to the bathroom:
"This is gonna be my second time peeing with my loose tooth!"
I hear him piddling away in there, and hope he's aiming neatly, and then he says, "Oh. I mean my third."
And later, when he's done peeing (for the second, third, or maybe even the fourth time since he discovered he has a loose tooth--which for the record, DIVA'S TOOTH--STILL INTACT.)... we have this discussion--
"Mom, which is better? Chocolate or cookies?"
My reply: "Cookies. Cuz you can dunk them in milk."
Agree? Disagree? Discuss!
Here's another thing I'm really curious about:
Sponge or rag?
I think people are either a sponge user or a rag user, but not both, when it comes to washing dishes. I am a fond sponge user; HATE, HATE dingy, grimy, mungy, mildewy, washclothy rags for washing dishes. You need the scouring side of the sponge, yes?
This should give you all plenty of stuff to think about over the weekend, and the bus is here now anyway, so I've gotta run!
And coming up next week, a Manic Mania Mommy Promotion to blow all blog promotions out of the water!
And of course, if you didn't have a chance yet, stop over at my other blog and read the first chapter of 40 Weeks, A Novel. Let me know over there if you want more.
Peace UP, and enjoy your life, cuz if you don't then what's the point?
