I haven't done this in a while. I need to do it more.
I know it's supposed to be ten things but work has been crazy and frankly I'm lucky I can remember these four...
1. This morning I rolled over in bed, saw that it was still snowing/raining and that there had been no accumulation through the night. I said to my husband, "I LOVE WHERE WE LIVE because the ocean (which is 3 miles away) melts the snow." "uh-huh." he responded with SIGNIFICANTLY less enthusiasm than I felt the situation deserved so I emphasized, "My mother got FIVE inches." To which he replied (in reference to my mother's single status,) "You'd think she'd be THRILLED with that."
2. Moments later we walked downstairs to breakfast where my daughter asked us what the word, "Implied" meant. My husband, in trying to explain it to her, gestured toward my oldest son and said, "Suppose he said, holding up his cap gun, 'I fixed my butt.'" That would IMPLY that it had been broken.
At which point my son jumped in and said, "It had a CRACK in it!"
3. It's pouring out. I walked the kids to the bus stop and came back dripping wet. I said to my daughter and my husband, "I'm dripping wet." My husband quickly put a tv show on for my daughter and chased me up the stairs. "Want to?" he asked. "I have to work." I told him. Disgruntled, he looked at me accusingly, "Then what was all that stuff downstairs about you being "dripping wet?" I looked at him, non-plussed. "I WAS dripping wet." I said, and pointed to the rain outside. Undeterred, he gave me a long explanation of how he would make it worth my while...
When he was done, I reminded him that our second son was home from school sick and less than 20 feet away. He had totally forgotten. I think he blushed!
4. Realizing that he wasn't getting any, he left me to check on our son. I heard my son say that he was feeling better and that he was getting hungry. And then I heard my husband laugh loudly and say, "No. I am not making you breakfast in bed."
