So Rae and the Hostage were talking, as they were reading my blog.
Rae: Hostage, no one agrees with you on the blog. They all think you are WRONG.
Hostage: That is because I AM not a person on the blog.
Rae: What do you mean? Your name is Hostage. You are a person.
Hostage: More like a slave. A slave isn’t a person.
Me (piping in): Of course they are! I mean back in the day people would trade things for slaves. They were such a hot commodity. Don’t you know history?
Hostage: More like a pet.
Me: Nah, people love their pets more, I think.
Hostage: Yea, I told you! I am not a person.
Me and Rae: EVIL LAUGH.
Poor, poor ex-hostage.
SO, the parents were visiting last weekend. And I was explaining the NOT IT rules to them, which made them laugh. Actually, Hubby and I were having a standoff in regards to the vomit by our bed. See why.
After explaining the rule, while we all watched Hubby clean up the vomit, I learned of the way my parentals dealt with the NOT IT rule way back when (yea, they are old school); it’s weird that they were that clever back in the day.
Dad (talking to Hubby): Ugh I know all to well what it is like to clean up cat puke.
Mom (under her breath): pshaw.
Dad: Yea, I usually had your mom clean up the vomit because I don’t know how.
Me: HA HA HA HA! What do you mean?
Dad: Well, your mother knows what special products to use on the carpet so it wouldn’t stain. I didn’t. So, it was better that she do it.
Me: 1. I don’t believe that and 2. I am going to use that now too!
Hubby: Don’t give her ANY more ideas!
And that, dear readers, is NOT it old school style.
Me: Make me French toast!
Me (jumping ahead): But, you have too! I have had a very stressful week!
Hubby: I said I would, but we don’t have bread, so I have to go to the store.
Me: Sorry, I am used to the Hostage being insubordinate, so I jumped the gun a little. It is so nice having you back…I think I have a whole new appreciation for you! 🙂
