"Happy". Making some serious progress on my WIP. Who wouldn't be happy about that?
Well, at the risk of TMI (too much information), I just have to share with you anyway what’s been going on in my household these past few weeks.
My hubby and I have had a case of the sillies.
No, it’s not life-threatening and I’m sure eventually—like MONO—will pass. But there you have it. We have the sillies. What can I say? We like to laugh.
How did this suddenly happen you might ask? Well, it all started with a couple of boxes of Gleem toothpaste my hubby bought for the family.
Okay, I know I could stop right there, because me using Gleem toothpaste is funny in itself. I mean, who buys Gleem?
Well, apparently we do. It’s very inexpensive. But I digress...
So anyway, the hubby took the toothpaste out of the box and apparently just dropped it into the bathroom trashcan. He did not bend it so it would fit. He did not crush it. NO. There it was sticking up and halfway out of the trashcan like a huge straw. Now I, being the neurotic woman I am, finally couldn’t take looking at it any longer and picked it out, crushed it, and threw it away properly.
I know, hilarious. But stick with me.
Well, the hubby goes into the bathroom and notices that I couldn’t take how he threw out it out and makes a comment about how I mutilated his precious Gleem box. Which had me laughing.
But it goes on.
Unbeknownst to me, he picked the Gleem box out of the trashcan, flattened it, and left it for me to find—under my laptop to be cute.
Well, when I found it, I laughed and decided two can play at his game. So I hid it where he’d find it: his sock drawer.
Then he hid it for me in my makeup bag
Well, I hid it in his shower caddy yesterday. (you can see for yourself the silliness of this nature) The hubby congratulated me on that one, by the way. It really took him by surprise. :)
The beauty of this comedy is that we each find it every couple of days—and just when we’ve completely forgotten about that stupid toothpaste box, it shows up again.
Now, you may be thinking, Jennifer, you need to get more. There's no doubt about that. But I still have to say, it’s the cheap little laughs in life that I enjoy the most. :)
What about you?
Do you think you’re more of a serious person? Or do you get a case of sillies (like me) every once in a while?
