For instance while at lunch with my daughter and my wonderful hubby Gina got a call from her guy. He just realized he is off on Monday and it means it runs into his four day off period. He’s a fireman. Here that means he works twenty four hours, off twenty four, works twenty four, off twenty four, works twenty four, then he’s off for four days in a row. The fact that the holiday falls into that doesn’t affect his days off but it does mean that his daughter is out of school for three days in a row so he has decided he wants to go camping. Good idea right? No.
Here it is the Wednesday before Labor Day and he wants Gina to find them a camp ground and book it for those three days. What part of Labor Day weekend does he not get? The odds of Gina being able to find some place they can get at this late date is slim to none. This isn’t the first time he has come up here at the last minute thinking that Gina is going to be able to move Heaven and Hell and manage to pull that miracle out of the crack in her ass. That is about as likely to happen as it is that I’m going to win the lottery tonight. You add into that the fact that I haven’t bought a lottery ticket and you get what I’m talking about here. The stupid things in regards to you guys doesn’t end there. My adorable little hubby managed to come off sounding even dumber not long after that.
We get back home and as usual I’ve got my head in my computer and look up and see him changing his shirt. Evidently I must have cut my eyes at him in an odd way because he went. “Whaat.” No that’s not a mistake there but simply the way he drew it out.
My short answer back at him was “Oh you’re still a cutie.”
He chuckled a bit as if he thought I was just being nice to him so I decided to just lay it out there for him. Get your heads out of the gutter please.
“Actually Buddy you’re still a damn sexy man and looked good standing there.” He actually did ladies. Boy did I hit the jackpot there.
