First thing, I would like to congratulate Big D on his victory in the Justice of the Peace race for District 10.
Now, on to humorous story.
I have a tendency to wake up when Pancake Land comes to bed. Keep in mind that she comes to bed sometime between 2am and 4am usually. When the rest of the world is asleep, she works. Anyways, the other night she came to bed and I have a vague recollection of talking to her, but I don’t remember what we talked about. So, I called her yesterday and asked if she remembered us having a conversation.
“Oh, yeah. We had a conversation all right.”
“What did we talk about?”
This is the part of the story that goes into double quotes because Pancake Land is doing the talking.
PL: (giving SC a light goodnight kiss) I love you.
SC: Promise me you’ll never go to work at the topless carwash.
PL: (taken off guard and confused) Babe, you don’t have to worry about that ever happening.
SC: (sternly) That’s not a promise. Promise me.
PL: Okay, I promise.
PL: Jeez, I promise never to go to work for the topless carwash.
SC: Okay. (rolls over and continues sleeping)
It amazes me that she plays along with me when I am asleep and talking to her. Perhaps it is because she knows that I would do the same to her if she were talking crazy (like that has never happened before) whilst sleeping. If I have made this sound like it is in any way malicious, it is not. It is done in a spirit of jest. I mean what could be more fun than really fucking with somebody who is in limbo between sleeping and waking. It takes a very talented person to lure the crazy out without waking the person up. It takes years of practice to hone this tool. Once perfected, you might as well start a web blog, because the stories will be endless.
Enough of this silliness. Today, the Royal family departs for their home in France. My list of stuff to do while they are gone is lengthy, but should not be a problem. That reminds me that Le Duke and I were supposed to unload a kiln from the van and we totally forgot to. Looks like we’ll be doing that this morning pre-airport. I just looked at the forecast for today. Rain. I just have to make sure that they are on a plane and in the air before the rain hits or else they’ll be stuck sitting at the airport for four hours.
Okay, well, in order to ensure that they are out of here on time, the sooner they split-the sooner I can slack off, I must go help them get ready. More soon. ~SC
