By The Way


During the birthday festivities, someone threw two large pizza boxes on top of the trash can (another pet peeve of mine), and when I removed them, this.

woops. i am the guilty party with the pizza boxes. but since, i'm the one who cleaned all the stuff off the table it should cancel out the pizza boxes. but, then, i am the one who threw out the spoon. sorry.
do i get a point for being honest?

you are choosing to draw the line with a spoon in the trash and pizza boxes on top? how about you guys work on some consistency in your house? how about some rules that make sense all the way around?

if you allow your kid to scream and yell and dig butter out of the bowl with her finger, i would think that the above "offenses" would be no big deal.

mamoo--half a point for confessing

MF--it's not little kids who throw the pizza boxes on top of the trash can or pile their coathangers up on the towel rack. Most of my pet peaves involve adults.

And if Biggy scooped the butter out of the bowl with his nasty, hairy man-finger, that might become a pet peave.

I think I just vomited a little in my mouth.

Tania, as you know, only my ass is hairy. My fingers are relatively moderate in the hair folicle department. I would appreciate a retraction.

And Mamoo, I knew it was you, but I had your back. You can owe me one later.

You do have finger-sprigs, Biggy. Look again.

Mamoo, if by having your back, he means saying, "No doubt your mother did that," then okay.

And Collin, darling, don't even pretend to be so delicate.

ohhh, it all makes perfect sense now... moms can get naked in their son's room and crawl out the window, onto the roof and expose all that god has given them to their husband who's mowing the lawn and to their son who happens to be an innocent bystander, but by all means, don't throw a spoon away or put pizza boxes on top of the trash.

thanks for clarifying.

Exactly.

Did the kids play Pin the Tail on Jack or did you get a real donkey?

I don't even want to get started on the recycling violations. Aluminum. Plastic. Silverware.

Sorry...I have to draw the line at hairy fingers in the butter tub. I have texture issues.

yes, the recycling picture in that trash can is sad, sad, sad
