In which the painters are here


Hey peeps! What’s going on? I have a lot of activity around here. You see I have a party coming up and whenever I have a party coming up its incentive to get the house together.


I really, really like giving parties and have been doing it for as long as I can remember. So far, I’ve NEVER had an unsuccessful party but that’s a lot of pressure ya know?


So I’m having the deck pressure washed and treated and having the pool coping pressure washed and painted and I’m finally getting my room repainted. That’s not really about the party but it needed to be done and the deadline was a good incentive.


So today the house is full of painters and Spanish music, which I must be honest, isn’t too bad! It certainly beats country (in my opinion)!


This morning Kevin was barking out orders (which I mostly ignore) and one of which was “get some milk because the date is past” which isn’t necessarily true.


Do you live with someone like this? Basically the date on salad and milk and shit is a
“sell by” date and for the milk it said June 15th. Now today is June 16th and there’s maybe an inch left in the milk.


I did go to the store yesterday but I forgot the milk on account of my grocery list disappearing somewhere in the store. That’s a different story but writing your grocery list on a post it note isn’t good because if it flies away (which it did) then it doesn’t necessarily fall to the floor. It sticks somewhere.


AND … if it does stick somewhere did you ever realize how many colors there are on a grocery shelf? Therefore the post it note blends in all-chameleon like. Well, that was my experience at least.


Still, I never wrote milk on the list to begin with so there’s that. BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT!


The point is that the milk is still fine today and I’ll get milk today but the guy is fucking paranoid about this date shit!!


He’s like that with everything. He will never survive the apocalypse if he’s all concerned about “expired food” and “botulism” and stuff. That’s what I think.


Anyways, I have a house full of people around today so I’m certainly not going anywhere right now but I eventually need to get milk and NOT because of the date, I need it because I just used it up with my coffee.


So that’s my plans today. What are you guys up to?? It’s crazy hot so I think I’ll stay indoors and just sniff paint. I’ll probably enjoy the day then!!

    Christ, the man would die in my house. I have so much crap in my house that is past the sell before date. If it isn’t growing or funny coloured, it get eaten, eventually. He won’t survive the zombie apocalypse when it comes…lol.

      I’d totally invite you but it’s a work retirement party (and not for me either … i can never retire!)

    Crazy hot would be nice. I’m convinced summer is completely bypassing the Chicago area this year.

    when it comes to food, if it looks the way it’s supposed to look and it smells the way it’s supposed to smell, I don’t throw it out just because it has some arbitrary date stamped on it.

    maybe a set of reading glasses should be permanently attached to the fridge.

    This guy would die in my house. I think there’s a Chinese food container in there made by General Tso himself.
