Ahoy there and hello again mates!
Today I am reading around and it seems we are all thinking about boys, men and the way they think and work. I gave up a long time ago trying to figure the male of our species out. All I got was a headache and more confusion. But I have come up with a short list of the most frustrating things my two dear darling knuckleheads do.
I live with two boys. The older one that I sleep with. (It’s my dear darling hubby you sick, twisted, perverted people.) The younger one, my dear darling son, I can’t exactly call my little one anymore because he’s taller than I am now. Collectively they are my dear darling knuckleheads and if I refer to that term of endearment, I have to answer the question of “Which one?”.
Here are just a couple of my constant battles with them.
Towels—-after a shower, they do NOT go on the floor, on the counter or across the closed toilet seat so you can sit and dry off whatever part of your anatomy it is you dry while there. (Really, I don’t want to know!)
Hangers—-dear darling son claims he doesn’t know how to put things on hangers despite my showing him more than once. Going into my own closet I discovered it is genetic, dear darling hubby attempted to hang up a t-shirt and had it completely off kilter. I have to give him credit for trying (shhh-don’t tell him said that!).
Aim—–when stumbling into the bathroom at night and not turning on the light, the last thing I want to do is step on a wet spot on the floor! I would rather step on a bug than a wet spot. Even in the daylight I will let out a stream of expletives that would make anyone blush. I have heard the knuckleheads ask each other “Who was the last one in there?” so they will know who the wrath is directed at. I know when they are outside they can spray and pray (thank goodness we live in the country) but not in the house!
Replacing things in fridge—-if someone takes the last bottle of water, etc out of the fridge, take some out of the pantry so they will get cold and don’t add them to the list until you check the pantry for reinforcements!
Dishwasher—-if you bring dirty dishes into the kitchen, check and see if the dishwasher has dirty dishes in it and if so put yours in. If the dishwasher has clean one’s, unload it and then put your dirty one’s in.
I have come to the conclusion that you can’t completely train them, you can only hope to manage them! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go restock the fridge and unload the dishwasher!
