Fly On The Wall In The Garden Of Weedin'

Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, 4 bloggers are welcoming you into their homes for a sneak peek at what goes on behind closed doors. 

Things have been pretty quiet around here because it's too hot outside to do much of anything after work but watch Netflix. And of course, COVID. Nobody wants to be out and about in public places. I'm just glad my family lives down here so we can see each other every weekend and be bored together! I'm breaking out of here next month, though. I need to stare at something besides my pugs and the beer pong marathons that take place here every weekend. At least I have a husband who still keeps me entertained with his quirky comeback comments......

"I wish you'd stop complaining---if your feet hurt that much from work, get a pair of orthopedic socks."
"Forget orthopedic socks....I need an entire orthopedic bodysuit."

"What happened to our pretty garden? It's full of weeds."
"I know what that want me to work outdoors today." 
"Yep---everything looks sloppy and overgrown."
"Okay, I'm out. If you need to find me, I'll be in the Garden of Weedin'."

"Isn't it weird to think that 35 years ago, you used to run 6-mile marathons?"
"Yeah, now I can't even walk across the room without feeling pain."

"What are your plans today?"
"I have to finish writing my dental article for AARP."
"When you're done, I hope it has some 'bite' to it...."

"I had weird dreams last night of a porcupine that was high on weed."
"Stop eating yogurt before you go to bed. You don't know what's in those probiotics."

"It's so gross that you have to pick up dog poop every day at your job and then drive the smelly bags in your car to the dumpster. That explains why flies appear in our house when you come home from work."
"Yep--- I'm the fly larva host."

"How do you like the new Frosted O's cereal that I bought?"
"Awful. A better name for it would be 'Frosted Nut Sack.'"
"I guess I won't be buying that again...."

"I've been out so long today running errands, I swear I'm a year older now." 
"By the amount of wrinkles on your face, I'd add another four years to that number."

"I pulled a muscle in my lower back. Can you rub this menthol cream on it for me?"
"Sure---drop your pants and I'll get the stuff real low where it hurts."
"No way---you'll put the cream too close to my bottom and I'll end up having a flaming hot bunghole. Then you'll laugh at me. I know you too well."
"And this is why you have trust issues...."

I swear y'all,  he has no reason not to trust me. I didn't mean to add cayenne pepper to his coffee this morning---I thought it was cinnamon....

  1. Glad to see you're maintaining during the pandemic.

  2. You thought the cayenne was cinnamon {{wink, wink}}. I may just make that same mistake the next time Hubs needs a little kick in the butt.

  3. does cayenne taste in coffee? Maybe you can make it a 'thing.' Loved the pic of you and the little ones.

    1. If you like your coffee SPICEY, you should try it, ha-ha!!
