And There Was A Bit In The Kitchen….

Did I mention that between the shed shenanigans I did a dod of ceramic tiling in the kitchen?

This was no big deal and was just one of those ‘needs finishing’ jobs us chaps like to keep undone to see how long we can stand the nagging. It relates to that page in the ‘Ladies Guide to Pestering Men’ that states, ‘Say, “When are you going to finish this?” a minimum of twenty times a day. It’s important to vary the pitch of your voice between a polite request, a mumble, a grumble, a whine, a plead and a barked order. Results can realistically be expected by week three.’

You know the gripper? You finally put out and get it done while she’s shopping so as to surprise and delight her upon her return and what do you get? “Oh, you did it that way. I was thinking you’d….”

Which reminds me of another Foggy funny from far back when;

A man and woman where on their honeymoon and one day decide they’d to ride their horses through the beautiful country side.

As the horses were crossing a small stream, the woman’s horse miss-steps and jostles the wife. Once across the stream, the man dismounts, walks over to the horse, looks him in the eyes and quietly says, “That’s one.” The man remounts his horse and they continue their ride.

A bit further down the path, the woman’s horse stumbles when stepping over a fallen tree. The man dismounts, stares the horse in the eyes, and boldly states, “That’s two!” then returns to his saddle and they move on.

As the afternoon sun began to set, the woman’s horse once again lost its footing on a mossy slope. The man dismounts, moves to the woman’s horse, and helps his wife out of the saddle. Moving to the front of the horse he stares it in the eyes and firmly says, “That’s it. That’s three.” removes a pistol from his vest, and shots the horse dead.

The woman, shocked and upset at seeing the horse killed, says to her husband, “Are you mad? That’s terrible, what an awful thing to do. Why would you do such a horrible thing!”

The man looks his wife in the eyes and quietly says, “That’s one.”

Hay ladies, it’s only a bit of fun. No, honest, it is, really.

I bumped into this last night. Is it old? New? I’ve no idea, but laugh I did. Oh, come on Alan, you’ve gotta laugh! Just a little smile then Steve?
