Fly On The Wall With A Ferret

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

     It has been a fun (but hot) month for us here in Florida. We hosted a bridal shower for my son's fiancĂ©e (plenty of shenanigans going on there!) and then spent the other weekends at the local Renaissance Festival where we donned costumes and ate giant turkey legs while watching a few comedy shows. I had a wonderful surprise when one of my blogger pals came into town and spent an evening with me in the tiki hut. Parri is a hilarious comedian and we laughed well into the night.

     I am fortunate enough to be married to a man who has made it his life's goal to make me laugh every single day, and so far, he has. Our conversations are never dull, and that pesky fly buzzing around my house can verify it by what he overheard this month:

"This candle is supposed to smell really good. The scent is called, 'Best Friends'."
"I don't know who you're hanging around with, but your best friends smell like lavender and kitty litter."

"I can't wait until the new season of Game Of Thrones begins!"
"Yeah, I'm getting a little tired of watching those tear-jerking episodes of This Is us. I'd much rather move onto decapitations, fire-breathing dragons, and sword fighting with White Walkers."

"How's the memoir writing coming along?"
"Not good---I have writer's block. The creative flow is not something I can control."
"Neither are my bowels after eating too much of your cabbage soup."

"I've been having weird dreams lately about alligators and cockroaches giving birth to millions of little babies. But I think I've dreamt this stuff before."
"Yeah, when you were pregnant."
"I'm way too old to get pregnant, but I'm not too old to carry a food baby."
"I'd have nightmares too if I ate a diet of chocolate raisins and avocado toast every day."

"We need to do the stool sample kits for our doctor so he can check us for cancer."
"Cancer doesn't run in my family."
"How do you know? You're adopted."
"I have my DNA results from"
"We all know that your DNA test confirmed that you're related to a ferret, and ferrets can get cancer."
"They also smell bad. At least I didn't inherit that problem."
"Well, that's certainly debatable...."

  1. LOL, now I'm wondering what smells worse, "best friends" candles or husbands with ferret DNA.

  2. Marcia, Your house is always such a fun place to read about. From a fellow food baby carrier, i relate to recurring dreams. You look amazing and your newest grandbaby is beautiful. Hope everything continues to be well in your world <3- MM

    1. Awwww thanks so much, Michele. I've been feeling very blessed lately. Life is good.

  3. This post is always good for a giggle! Anyone who has someone in her life who makes her laugh each day is lucky indeed! And frankly, I can't imagine a candle that is supposed to smell like Best Friends... I think they ought to stick with vanilla, coffee, and other things that have a definable scent:)

    1. Right? These abstract-scented candles make no sense to me. Is there one that smells like NAP? I'd buy that!

  4. hehe---Always love "Fly on the Wall" here at Meno mama! You and your hubs are hilarious!! Have a great weekend and p.s. find a new candle but keep the best friends :D

  5. Are you sure you didn't just celebrate Purim and got so drunk (as required) that you couldn't discern the hero from the villain? Sure sounds like this is the aftermath :-)

    1. Well you know, it sounds like this EVERY DAY at the Doyle house, HAHA!

  6. Next it will be candles that smell like ferrets -- I think I've smelled those before. Got to thinking -- what does a best friend smell like?

    Never could get into Game of Thrones but This is Us -- all the way :)
