scenes from the life

[Cuddled up on the sofa with the spousebeast, watching the Today show]

Me:  While I appreciate that you're taking the extra time to make fun of Matt Lauer with me, didn't you have to go in early to put in the truck order?

Spousebeast:  Oh, I figured out how to do it online while you were asleep.

Me:  So you had me get up at SEVEN AM ON MY DAY OFF FOR NO REASON!?!?!?

Spousebeast:  Ummmm....like you haven't been up and eating Doritos since before 4.

(I hate it when he's right)

*****

[Checking out with my favorite cashier at Harris Teeter]

Martha:  Okra?  Your guy is making gumbo again?

Me:  Yup.  He's bringing it to his fantasy football boys weekend.

Martha:  No shrimp?

Me:  The way they've treated me lately?  They don't deserve shrimp.

Martha:  Ooooh!  Burn!  I think we've got a special on potted meat.  Or cat food.  Send it up with seafood flavored cat food.

 (I <3 Martha)

*****

[Riding home on the NS.  Reach my stop and run into the spousebeast boarding on his way to work]

Spousebeast:  Hey, sexy lady.  Wanna hook up later?

Me:  I think you know where I live.

Cue slightly overenthusiastic kiss, a pat on my butt as I walk past...and  bus full of college students who are squeeged out beyond belief'.  Eeeew!  Old people PDA!


****

And I came home to find that my copy of 'Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine' by Ann Hood (I LOVED that book.  I hope it holds up to my memory of it) AND my copy of Sudie Rakusin's new silver journal, complete with a thank you note and an invitation to drop by her studio to get it signed and have a cup of tea if I'd like had arrived i the mail.

Not a bad day off so far.

Kent the the gumbo maker in the family, and he is GOOD. We each have our culinary "things" that the other one doesn't dare fool with.

It only gets into dangerous territory when roasting a chicken is involved. We will actually fight over whose turn it is.
