This and That

Last night's supper,

my car getting lots of attention,

and the dishes my husband carried through Italy, simply because I liked them.

Let's see....spoke at a MOPS meeting on Esther, delivered Meals on Wheels, hung with Josephine for a bit, met Katharine for lunch, went to the bank, played scrabble on facebook with Holly while doing 3 loads of laundry and entertaining a bunch of 9 and 10 yr olds, and just now got back from open house at Alex's school, where they served a gourmet supper of In n Out.

And my husband and eldest son? Beer, brats, Bach and Luther.

sigh. I miss them.

My evening plans are pretty tea, hot bath, and whatever shows are on the DVR. Alex and Brian are playing wii on a school night, which means it's either the end of the school year or half the family is gone.

Or both.


I did have a little....ummmm....thrill today.

One of my Meals on Wheels gentleman speaks not a lick of English. My very limited Spanish...I took 4 years in high school which means I can order a taco and ask for directions to the nearest hospital, both of which are necessary if eating from a hut on the side of the road in Mexico, means we have a slight language barrier.

Well today, he answered his door naked.

I mean.....NAKED.

Like, NAKED.

Oh my.

I handled the situation very well, I think. I basically screamed. A lot. And said things like 'no, no Senor Vega! Not OK!

The deal is....I think he is completely mentally with it. He was just naked. Which 70 years ago was probably quite the sight to see.



  1. And what's wrong with wandering around the house naked?

    It saves wear and tear on your clothes eliminates one less decision -- what am I going to wear today -- from the daily decision list!

  2. Now the question is...
    what would you do if xerxes answered the door naked? Would you scream or laugh?
