Overheard at the MacDonald’s Take Three

As you know, sometimes I just have snippets to give y’all so here are two recent conversations that I’ve had with Kevin.



Me:                  Keely told me that when we were in Washington that I snored.


Kevin:             You do snore, I’ve told you that before


Me:                  Well I didn’t believe you.


Kevin:             Yeah


Me:                  … well, its because after I had my shoulder surgery it hurt to sleep on my side so I sleep on my back now.


Kevin:             Yeah and …


Me:                  … so that’s why I snore now!


Kevin:             You know, now that you know this you really shouldn’t be so mean to me about my snoring.


Me:                  Nahh…my snoring doesn’t wake me up and yours does.


Kevin:             Lynn, what’s it like to be the absolute center of the universe?


Me:                  (Whining now) quit picking on me.  (also, I assume that was rhetorical)



And just the other day …


Kevin:             Lynn, we’re out of soap.


Me:                  Are you sure?


Kevin:             Yeah, there’s none in our bathroom.


Me:                  Have you checked upstairs?


Kevin:             Yes, I can’t find any soap anywhere.


Me:                  OK (sigh) I’ll get some…


The day after that …


Kevin:             Did you get soap?


Me:                  Not yet


Kevin:             What did you do all day?


Me:                  hmmm


Kevin:             Lynn?


Me:                  I’m thinking…



And the day after the day after …



Kevin:             You NEED to get some soap.


Me:                  You NEED to stop getting dirty.


Kevin:             No seriously Lynn, I’ve been using shards of soap.


Me:                  OK, OK, OK … quit harassing me.


Kevin:             (he gave me a dirty look)


Me:                  Daniel is coming home today…


Kevin              Aren’t you happy?


Me:                  Yeah, do you think he’ll want to do something special?

(He’s been on a one week backpacking trip in the mountains)


Kevin:             He’ll probably be happy to just hang out with you.


Me:                  Will he want a special dinner?


Kevin:             Why? Are you thinking of cooking?


Me:                  I mean, I COULD.


Kevin:             He’ll just want to cuddle.


Me:                  (Brightening) Maybe I’ll just pick him up some soap!


Kevin              Good God …


Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our life!!!

    Perhaps you should be sponsored by a soap company so they send it to you all the time and you never have to buy any.

    When you figure out how to answer that “what do you do all day” question let me know. I am still trying to come up with a good answer.

      It’s a difficult question isn’t it? Why must I justify my time? WHY?

    I swear my hubby and I have had that EXACT same conversation about snoring… hahahaha.. good to know I’m not the only one who uses this:

    “Nahh…my snoring doesn’t wake me up and yours does.”

    as a valid argument.

      Yeah…nothing I do is all that unusual…I just admit to it
