In which the pig moved

This weekend was beautiful, weather-wise that is, and probably one of the last “pool” weekends of the year.  So Kevin and I were trying to enjoy it and we were floating in the pool and admiring our house.  Things have been pretty chaotic this summer because Kevin has been working his ass off and of course, Keely has been at home.


Theoretically, we are in the “empty nester” stage and I’m sure I’d be quite depressed about it and I probably will, if Keely leaves.   But we were floating and staring up at the trees and up at the house.


On the house is a cupola. On the cupola is a weathervane.  Our weathervane is a pig.  This is atypical but because I once bought a wooden pig, people decided that we must be “pig” people and started buying us pigs.  Even though I liked THAT particular pig and I’m not really the “collector” type I seem to have accumulated pigs of various sorts in my house.


Therefore, when we decided to build this house we thought we should definitely get a pig weathervane.  Follow me so far?


Of course, this has nothing to do with the story.  I mean, the story is about the weathervane and not about collecting pigs or anything.  Which I don’t by the way.  I have a lot of pigs but I don’t really collect pigs.


So we were floating there staring at the weathervane and discussing how cool it was to have a pig weathervane when all of a sudden the pig totally moved from North to South. ( in the sense that it spun on it’s axis…its not a real pig.)

Me:                  ya know what?

Kevin:             what?

Me:                  I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen the pig move like that before.

Kevin:             what the hell are you talking about?

Me:                  I’ve never noticed the pig actually moving

Kevin:             you didn’t know the pig could move?

Me:                  I knew the pig could move.  I just never noticed it before.

Kevin:             we have lived here almost 10 years

Me:                  who the hell stares up at a pig

Kevin:             I do

Me:                  well I don’t

Kevin:             I always look at the weathervane when I go outside with Tucker and stuff

Me:                  I always forget we have one

Kevin:             how can you miss it? It’s on top of the cupola!

Me:                  who looks up at the roof of a house?

Kevin:             I think you might be the most oblivious person on earth

And then Keely joined us


Kevin:             hey Keely.  Mom didn’t know the pig moved.

Keely:             how is that possible mom?

Me:                  I knew it moved.  I just never noticed it moving

Keely:             it moves all the time

Me:                  it doesn’t move when I look at it

Kevin:             Keely, mom is so totally clueless

Me:                  I notice lots of stuff

Keely:             what types of stuff?

Me:                  stuff that’s not up on the roof

And then I proceeded to get shit for the rest of the day all because I use my incredible mind for important things and not for tracking which way the pig blows.


Stupid family.

Stupid weathervane.

Stupid pig.

    That’s hilarious that your husband actually checks the weathervane when he goes out. I’d have trouble figuring out whether the arrow was pointing towards or away from the direction the wind was blowing, and then my head would explode and I’d stop looking at the roof too, probably, on account of my brains being splattered all over the ground.

    OMG this had me CRACKING up! Just found your blog the other day (maybe even just yesterday???) but I am absolutely loving it so far!

    P.S. I never would have noticed it either. Must be a woman thing…to not care or think too much about the direction that the pig blows, I mean. I’ve got better things to think about than the direction of the wind :)

    At least you noticed that the pig moved and not like a huge gaping hole in your roof. There you have it, the bright side.
