Gimme My Star!

Monday, December 03, 2007

After we finished our nightly meal, and by we, I mean me, hubs and the eldest ate our food, and the dog ate the two younger children's meal, Hubs took a shower.

I told him to hurry up as I wanted one too.

Normally, If I need a shower in the evening I hop in with him, but Rainbow Man had homework and without an adult sitting right.beside him he finds it impossible to tune out the other boys and do his work.

So hubs finished his shower and I went in to have mine. Shirt off I realized I had forgotten my razor in the other bathroom and was trying to convince him it was faster for him to get dressed and go get it than it would be for me to put my shirt back on.

Then the phone rang.

You see, his parents got their first internet capable laptop this afternoon, and were trying to access their email account. First up : trying to explain how to click the mouse. Then I tried to explain where to find the word in-box on his email program so he could put his new clicking skills to use.

All of this is happening at the same time the hubs is wagging his tail in my face. I tried to wave him away. No luck. The tail just kept wiggling, begging for attention mere inches from my face. I gave him a disgusted look AND managed not to laugh as he said in his most innocent voice "What? It's clean. I just washed it!"

The fact that I did not laugh - while still on the phone with his parents who are now arguing about the viagra email in the spam folder- tells me I am due for yet another gold star.

And a smiley face...

When my folks got there computer, I snickered quite a few times. But then I started to get a little frustrated and showed my dad how to open up Hearts.

I haven't heard from him since.

Tenacious BLOL. They are using random net signals from around their complex too, so they are going to get frustrated as hell at the net cutting in and out.

Sheila Not on the phone!!

Dian Mandy Wow! they have internet in Germany! Glad you arrived safe and sound!

Twisted Cinderella I'm thinking a candlelight bubble bath, you?

Avitable I have enough worrying about them stumbling on to bluepaintred and sundry!

MetalMom Well.. He's kind of a mutant like that, cept his tail is in the front and not the back.

Carrie Good. I'll be sure to laugh when it happens to you!
