I seriously feel like crap today!
I think I caught a cold. My head hurts, my throat is sore, and I couldn’t be lazier.
If you’ve been reading my posts, specifically the Good Mommy Days & Bad Mommy Days, then you’ll understand when I tell you that today was a very BAD Mommy day.
When I wasn’t sitting on the couch, I was looking through the refrigerator. For some reason I thought that the answer to all my problems was hiding in there, somewhere, maybe behind last weeks left-over’s. Seriously, I have to throw that shit out!
I’m not feeling very creative today, but I still felt compelled to write, or ramble, whatever you want to call it. Don’t you feel lucky….?
So it occurred to me today, while I was resting on the couch watching Curious George, that “The Man With The Yellow Hat” is actually kind of HOT, at least for a cartoon character anyway. He is the most patient man I have ever known, not that I actually know him or anything…I’m just saying.
“Oh ya George, go ahead, tear the house apart! It’s okay, cause you’re a monkey! Are those frogs in the bath tub? Did you put your toys down the drain again, you silly monkey? Why is there a WHOLE in my yellow hat? Of course you can bring those ducks in the house, cause you’re a monkey? Are those worms living under your pillow? Are you eating that corn with your feet? Of course you are, cause you’re a MONKEY!!”
“No Z you really shouldn’t suck on your toes, I know where they’ve been. Please stop dumping the laundry basket out on the floor and using it for a prison, although that’s pretty creative, I just don’t think Kassy (the dog) really appreciates it. Please, please, please tell me when you go poop, that way I can help you wipe, and I don’t have to steam clean the couch for the hundredth time! No Z, you can’t give ducky a bath in the dog dish. What is that? Seriously kid, what is that? Oh thank GOD, it’s just dirt! No, you can’t hold the egg. Why? Because you’ll break it, or eat it, or throw it at me! Either way, I’m just not prepared to suffer the consequences!”
So ya, if Curious George lived at my house, he’d be in a cage. Oh, and if anybody knows where I can find a bright yellow hat, my husband is interested….
