Fly On The Wall During An Endless Summer

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, five bloggers are graciously inviting you into their homes for a sneak peek at what goes on behind closed doors.

     The only thing the nosy fly has overheard in my home lately is arguments over the electric bill because I've been pushing the thermostat down to subzero temperatures. Hot flashes and a ninety-degree heat index don't mix, folks. Is summer ever going to end? Bring on the sweater jackets, the sexy boots, and pumpkin lattes. I'm ready for fall!

     In the meantime, I've had some pretty interesting conversations with my husband (that is, when we weren't arguing over who was the last one to use up all the ice cubes in the freezer for margaritas)....

"Did you take that new prescription for your sciatic nerve pain?"
"What prescription?"
"Did it work?"
"Did what work?"
"Did it get rid of your aches and pains?!?"
"What aches and pains?"
"Sounds like your pain is gone....along with your memory!!"

"Good God, woman, what did you put in that food? I can't stop pooping."
"That's not the question you should be asking. The REAL question is, why did you eat an entire quiche?"

"Throw out that under-the-counter paper towel holder. I want something simpler."
"But it's brand new!"
"And it's worth what---three dollars?"
"I'll sell it on Let Go."
"That's so dumb!"
"You never know---there might be a guy in Idaho who really needs it."
"What's he gonna do, pay $3 for the towel rack and another $15 on shipping?"
"Well, it is brand new...."

"I shouldn't have eaten lunch at that fast-food Mexican place. My colon is spitting out those chalupas."
"I'm sure it has nothing to do with the 'breakfast burrito surprise' you ate this morning."

"Doc gave me this special brace to wear on my hand and wrist at night."
"It looks like a spatula."
"Yep, I'll be flipping pancakes in my sleep."

"I need to use a tanning lotion on my body before we go on vacation, otherwise I'm going to look like a plucked chicken by the hotel pool."

"Did you have the tuna salad for lunch today?'
"Yeah, how did you know?"
"Because your breath smells like a fishery."

"Why is it that every time we go out, you don't want to take a purse, so you ask me to carry all of your stuff? You might as well say, 'Hey, can you carry this heavy bag of elephant dung in your cargo shorts? I'm sure it will fit.'"

     I thought that once I became an empty nester, I would run out of material for these Fly On The Wall posts. But I was wrong. My husband never disappoints.....

  1. So funny, I thought the same thing about not having enough for these posts once I became a (semi)empty nester, but Hubs keeps that material coming for me too {{sigh}}.

  2. Bwahahahaha! Okay, I'm avoiding quiche AND that Mexican place! ;)
    I may be interested in that paper towel holder.
    And we're having pancakes for breakfast. Can I borrow your brace?

    1. I'll be sure and mail it to you, along with the paper towel holder ha-ha!

  3. :D hahahahaaaa!! I love that you argue about ice cubes for the margaritas. This is my kind of household.

  4. Looks to me like his diet is what led to those dancing steps on the sidewalk with the garden implements.

  5. The ice cube situation is a pet peeve and after almost 50 years, I finally got hubby trained. Now he complains if I forget

  6. Really fun pictures and funny banter as always!!

  7. I haven't been around much. Nice to see things are still crazy at your house. We're having another heatwave in Germany. It's now in the mid-90s and air conditioning isn't in households due to high energy bills. Stay cool!

    1. OMG I would die from the heat mixed with my hot flashes!!

  8. So funny! I've never had the urge to get married but acknowledge that I'm depriving myself of some great comedy material

    1. Oh yes---my husband is THE BEST source for blog fodder!
