In which it’s all true

 Ok, I totally forgot to post this so just assume it’s July 5th ok?  You can do that right? You guys aren’t complete idiots (that’s an assumption).


Yesterday was July 4th.  I’m not bragging. I’m sure it was July 4th for you guys too.


Now, where was I?  Oh yeah, so yesterday one of Kevin’s “peeps” at work was alone for the holiday since July 4th inconveniently fell in the middle of the week.  As a result, his wife and kids were up at the lake and he was by himself.  Being all nice and kind and other assorted words I said that we should invite Walt over for dinner that night.


Kevin was psyched and so it was written (that’s from the 10 Commandments … let it be written, let it be done.  You can thank me later for the learning experience here)


So Walt came over and was chilling.  When he got there we were watching Independence Day on DVD because that’s what you do on Independence Day folks.  You watch Bill Pullman making the greatest speech to the people in Area 51.  Walt, who religiously reads my blog, said “wow I didn’t think that when I read your post this morning about how you guys watch Independence Day that I’d be watching it with you!” to which I replied “yeah, you can thank me later.”


Boring right? But that’s not all folks.  We were in the kitchen and Walt picks up this box and says:


Walt:               is this the filter that Kevin bought because you hadn’t plugged in the filter?

Me:                  yes it is

Walt:               why do you still have it? (good question right?)

Me:                  well, the tank is cloudy AGAIN and I’m thinking of changing to this new filter that Kevin kindly bought

Walt:               so all that is true?

Me:                  true?

Walt:               yeah, you have fish and you didn’t plug it in?

Me:                  of course it’s true

And then he met Hercules and Gilgamesh (no, not in person … they’re in the water but I def introduced them all) and he saw that their tank is messy.


We went through the evening and he asked if we could discuss my day down in court, which I realize I never wrote about except to say that I got pulled driving without my registration.


Me:                  it’s spooky hanging out with somebody who knows everything I’m up to and how fucked up it all is

Walt:               it’s even funnier knowing Kevin so well that I can imagine his reaction

Me:                  he’s ridiculous

Walt:               does he really make you lists?

Me:                  are you kidding me?

Walt:               he makes us lists at work.

Me:                  too funny, I can’t imagine.  Here’s the list he made for Daniel and myself “to do” this summer

Walt:               doesn’t look like you’ve accomplished much on it

Me:                  hey! I’m a full time nurse here

Walt:               he sends Rodney and myself typed up lists via email

Me:                  really?  Typed up?  He must like you better

Walt:               of course, we do our lists

Me:                  well, that’s your mistake then. You’re an enabler to him

Walt:               well, we can’t all be like you Lynn

(ain’t THAT the truth)


so finally … Walt was leaving and as he was pulling out the driveway he rolled down his window.


Walt:               one last question?

Me:                  what?

Walt:               did you really just find some cup holders in your car?

Me:                  yes

Walt:               your 10 year old car?

Me:                  9

Walt:               what?

Me:                  I’ve only had it 9 years

Walt:               so it is true?

Me:                  in my defense, they really were in a sneaky place

Walt:               I can’t believe that

Me:                  I told you that EVERYTHING that I write about is true.  It may be somewhat exaggerated but it’s TRUE.

Walt:               that’s amazing

Me:                  why make shit up when so much stuff is always happening anyways?

Walt:               I gotta go

So there you are folks.  IF you don’t believe all this is true you can ask Walt, my guest star today.

    LOL. That’s the thing when you blog about life – everyone else is updated on what’s happening with you.

    Sometimes, other people remember more stuff about what happened to me than I do lol.

    I am totally getting that now. I’m like, “How do you know that?” and they are like, “You wrote it.” Ah, yeah. Funny stuff.

    If I had a dime for every, “You REALLY did that???” thing on my blog, I’d be swimming in dimes. It’s a crying ass shame they’re only worth ten cents. I guess I should’ve said, “If I had a million dollars for every time…” but that kind of ruins the saying.

    My personal favorite regarding the lists ~ “Well that’s your mistake then. You’re an enabler to him.”

    I have believed from Word One, because the Truth Will Out, and it absolutely outs and outs in your blog. I still love the cupholders and keep looking for secret compartments in mine.

    I just have one question………
    Why didn’t Walt go to the lake with his wife and kids on the 4th?
    Just wondering………..

    So, ya…I’m having lunch at a local eatery, and I’m reading your much loved blog. I get to the bottom, the bit about the cup holders, and I almost dropped my fork! I was stunned! I had completely forgotten that I had found cup holders this morning! What the crap! I finally got tired of the accumulation of dirt, crumbs and dog hair and decided to detail the interior of my car. I pulled up the arm rest and boom, there they were. Quite the ingenious idea I must say, but you’d think I would have seen them in the past 5 years, or the kids, or my husband…Say, any chance of spreading the blame? Anyway, it was a lot funnier when it happened to you!
