Today I want to share a "funny" that happened in my city, in my neighborhood, in my HOME this week.
A year and a half ago while I was unpacking and moving into this home, I realized that my dish-scrubber-sponge-on-a-soap-handle wouldn't "hang" from the edge of the sink - - - it kept slithering and clattering down into the sink.
So, I "retired" one of my 70's cartoon character glasses from its former role of being a drinking glass - - -
And turned it into the dish-scrubber-sponge-on-a-soap-handle holder. It works great.
It's been sitting by the sink, carrying out its new function for A YEAR AND A HALF.
Today while I was wiping off dishes getting them ready to put in the dishwasher, I noticed that good ole Tweety had a ring of blue Dawn dish detergent down in her bottom.
I thought, "I'll rinse that out of there before I put the sponge back when I'm finished loading the dishwasher."
Meanwhile Fisherhubby, my lawn gnome, was busy fertilizing and "de-grubbing" the yard.
I could see him going back and forth across the back lawn, back and forth, back and forth out in the hot sun.
I thought, "He looks really hot, thirsty, and dehydrated. I think he should take a break and come in here to cool down and get a drink."
Pretty soon he did just that.
I was still busy at the sink, so he got his own drink and disappeared with it.
I finished my task, and reached over to pick up Tweety and rinse him out.
He wasn't there.
He's been there for A YEAR AND A HALF - HOLDING HIS LITTLE SPONGE ON A STICK.
I thought, "Did I stick him in the dishwasher without realizing it????"
Then I thought, "Did Greg take him for a DRINKING GLASS???"
So - - - I went through the house in search of my 14 year old husband and found him sitting on the front stoop.
"Do you have the Tweety glass??"
"Are you drinking out of it?"
"How does it taste?"
"Fine - - - - - (long pause) - - - no it doesn't, it tastes like SOAP!"
"You goose! It's only been our dish-washing-sponge-on-a-stick holder for A YEAR AND A HALF!!!"
"Well, maybe I've been saying too many bad words and needed to wash my mouth out with soap!!"
If you don't know what "washing your mouth out with soap" is all about, you are far too young and I won't bother to attempt an explanation!
Trust me - - - I know ALL ABOUT IT, from multiple experiences as a child.
And THAT'S what's been happening 'round these here parts this weekend - - - what's been happening in YOUR neck of the old woods?
