Regular ol’ Tuesday

QUICKIE: Vincenzo: “Mom, is there something behind me?”  Me: “Nope.”  Vincenzo: “JUST WORRY ABOUT YOURSELF!  DON’T SPEND ALL YOUR TIME WORRYING ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING!”
********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
A conversation between my son and husband:

V: Dad, we should go bowling.  We haven’t been in a looooong time.
K: Yeah, like you mean 12 hours?
V: No, like–Daddy, what’s the biggest number?
K: Infinity.
V: That’s not a number!
K: Well, technically it’s an irrational number…
V: Let’s make 10 the biggest number.  Dad, we should go bowling.  We haven’t been bowling in, like, TEN!

In other news, I’ve been growing some things from seed/bulb inside.  Today my mom stopped by, and her being a certified Master Gardener and all, I asked her to take a look at my begonias which hadn’t sprouted a thing.  She poked around for a bit then pulled up a bulb to show me its perfectly formed, if not anemic, stems and leaves.  Growing upside-down in the dirt.  Because that’s how I planted it.

Guess how she responded:
a) “Not to worry–we’ve all done that at least once in our lives!”
b) “Anyone could make that mistake, honey.”
c) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!  Hold on; wait a minute–AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

That’s right, folks, she laughed me out of my own house.  I’m sure she’s called all her master gardening friends by now, and probably Cisco too.  But guess what?  I happen to know that A CERTAIN SOMEONE planted begonias right side up at her house last month and they haven’t grown even one spindly branch.  So who’s laughing now, Mom?  WHO?!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Teriyaki pork tenderloin
Vesuvio vegetables
Lemon cookies a la mode

  1. Gosh, that is priceless, on both stories. My idea of gardening is mulch. Lots and lots of mulch. It makes it look like something is going to sprout up even though nothing ever does.

  2. But your mom is so cute when she is laughing, we can’t help but laugh with her!

  3. Glad you had someone to laugh at you! It always makes you feel good.

    I haven’t really done any gardening of my own, but I’m sure I’ll make that mistake someday!
