Fly On The Wall In A Cuckoo's Nest

   Welcome to the May edition of Fly On the Wall group postings, hosted by Karen of  Baking In A Tornado. Today, 15 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you'd see if you were a fly on the wall in their homes.

     As always, my husband and adult children are the source of my inspiration for these FOW posts----they never fail to supply me with an abundance of blog fodder. I try my best to keep that pesky fly on the wall entertained. Here are some snippets of conversation the fly heard this month:


"Couldn't you go for a Krispy Kreme donut right about now?"
"Stop it! You're activating my salivary glands!"

"I don't want to go to bed yet because I know I'll be up again soon to use the bathroom. My large intestine is only five feet long, but I just consumed eight feet of food. You do the math…"

"Your moral compass has gone askew."

"I may be over the hill, but at least I'm picking up speed."
"Keep pedaling, because I'm on the two-seater with you."

"It's hard for me to be nostalgic when I can't even remember what I ate for lunch yesterday."

"What are you doing tonight?"
"Oh, just pulling off my skin tags."


"No more spicy Keilbasa and beans for you. I think you've traumatized the toilet."
"Yeah, but at least I can finally put up a vacancy sign on my intestines."

"Why are you as grumpy as Mr. Snuffleupagus today?"
"Because you're annoying me and turning me into Mr. Pissmeoffupagus."

"Could you please stop singing in the car?"
"It's Katy Perry. I'm trying to cheer you up."
"I don't know anyone who would be cheerful if their ears started bleeding."

"My life is all about balance; just enough caffeine and just enough wine."


And that folks, is what it's like living in this cuckoo's nest that I call home. Please be sure to visit all the bloggers participating in today's FOW post!
