If Linda chose to, she could write a very entertaining blog, because she’s a very entertaining person — but, so far, she’s not interested.
That’s really too bad, BUT it means that I can shamelessly use her stories on MY blog!
After yesterday’s post about the conversation about the car and garage that she and Doug had, she sent me the following e-mail to tell me exactly how the story went and actually it was even funnier than I had portrayed. And then, she told me about another conversation they had today. I tell ya’ — she’s got a million of ’em!
Linda gave me permission to re-print her e-mail. Here it is:
Actually that conversation was even more confusing than the way you reported it. It was kind of a dreary, drizzly day; and I had been out running some errands. When I came home, Doug was in the garage. He met me as I was about to pull into the garage and asked me to “leave the car out of the garage so he could clean it.” I understood that to mean that he wanted to wash the car, and I questioned (to myself) the wisdom of that, given the weather conditions. But I didn’t voice my opinion, left the car outside, and went into the house. Awhile later, Doug came into the kitchen, and I asked him if he had washed the car yet. He looked at me incredulously, and said, “Why would I wash the car on a day like this?” I looked at him, just as incredulously (maybe more so) and said, “You TOLD me to leave the car out because you wanted to clean it.” The light dawned in his eyes then, and he told me that he had meant that he was going to clean the GARAGE.
I have another story that happened this morning. You know how he always asks me which credit card he should use? Well, he was getting ready to take the Corolla in to Discount Tire this morning to have the tires rotated and balanced. As he was getting ready to leave, he called to me from the other room and said, “Which card should I use?” I replied, “You probably ought to take the Corolla.”
If she ever decides to use all this great fodder on a blog of her own — I’m toast! 🙂
