Fly On The Wall Having Fun In Purgatory

Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, four bloggers are bravely opening the door to their homes so that you may get a sneak peek at what goes on behind closed doors!

The nosy fly buzzing around my house was super excited this week to see another Doyle grandbaby ushered into the world! My son's wife gave birth to a baby boy! This is our first grandson---we have two granddaughters from my oldest daughter, so you can imagine my joy at having a third little human being to love. As much as we hated the Covid lockdown, at least something good came from it. 

I almost forgot that today was Fly On The Wall day since I have been so preoccupied waiting for this grandbaby to be born, but the fly DID overhear some interesting (and as always, weird) bits of convo this past month:

"Honey, where is my cellphone?" 
"You ask that so often---I'm pretty sure it will be on your tombstone."

"'Look, I got a BOGO on french fries! Have some!"
"Yay, I can add them to my ever-increasing gallstone collection."

"Your skin looks a little weathered. Maybe you should use a facial scrub?"
"I need more than a facial scrub; I need a pressure cleaner."

"What kind of meat is this on the shishkabobs?"
"It's chicken, Why?"
"Kind of chewy. Tastes more like a cat kabob." 
"When was the last time you ate a cat???"

"I REALLY need to go on a diet."
"Not me. I look down at my stomach with pride and know that I am a magnificent whale." 

"Your talk-text messages are awful. Full of errors and jibberish." 
"That's on you to figure out what I've texted." 
"Sorry, but I don't know how to read Klingon."

"Wake up! Breakfast is ready!"
"What is it?"
"A LARGE bowl of oatmeal."
"The last thing I want to do is wake up and stick my head in a bowl."
"I bet you would if it was filled with coffee."

"Every time I have to go out and run errands it starts to rain."
"Of course it does because God doesn't love you."
"Neither does the devil, which means I'm stuck in purgatory with you."


     All I can say is that if this is purgatory, it's pretty damn good. I'm happy to stay right where I am....with my crazy, fun-loving family.
