In which i perform vital functions

Today I had a funny little conversation with the home peeps while I was chilling in the San Diego airport.


Me:       Hey there, what’s up?

Kevin:   I’m having lunch with Andie.

Me:       I called the house but nobody answered. Are you alone with Andie?

Kevin:   yeah

Me:       Where are Keely and Daniel?

Kevin:   they’re at the grocery store!

Me:       You’re kidding me!

(believe me, this is unheard of)


Kevin:    yes, the kids finally discovered that you perform some functions around here.

Me:         Really?

Kevin:     Yeah

Me:          Like what?

Kevin:      We ran out of food…

Andie:      (I can hear her commenting in the background) I was just fine without her.  Tell her I didn’t need her

Kevin.       Andie said that …

Me:           (interrupting) Yeah, yeah, yeah…I can hear her

Kevin:       We had no food in the house…none

Andie:       I was fine, I had peanut butter

Kevin:        … and then we ran out of bread

Me:            So do they appreciate me now?

Kevin:       We didn’t even have orange juice either

Andie:       We have plenty of peanut butter.

Kevin:       Daniel really wanted some bread.

  Me:         So now they know they need me?

Andie:       We don’t need you, just bread and orange juice.

Me:            Are you going to pick me up?

Kevin:       We need to go, our food is here.

So as you can see, I perform a VITAL role in my family! VITAL!!!  Because even if you have Peanut Butter, it’s a pain in the ass without bread.

    We don’t need you, just a bunch of bread? Wow, that had to make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

    Hi Lynn, glad to see nothing has changed in my “absense”…ha ha! I’m wondering now if I’m needed at home at all considering my hubby even does the grocery shopping!
