Two conversations with Brian/Brief comic relief from the Squash Blossom saga

This Friday morning Brian and I were hanging out in the kitchen.

Me, “Brian, guess what.  One of my clients came in yesterday.  And she reads Square Piece and she thinks you’re sooooo sweet and that you love me sooooo much…”

Then, acting nonchalant as I walked to the pantry, I teased, “I told her that she was crazy…”

Brian replied, “Your butt looks so hot right now.”

Me, “Brian!  Did you hear anything I just said?!”

Brian, “Yeah.  Your client thinks I’m sweet.”


Last night I asked Brian to drive me to Sherri’s house.  I was bringing my sangria but knew that if I had even two sips, that’d be one sip too many for driving back home.  What can I say?  I’m a lightweight.

Brian was playing his guitar while checking out cars online with his laptop sitting on a stool right in front of him.

Me, “Brian, I’m ready…  Brian!  You ready?”

I held my keys right in front of his face.

He continued plinking on his guitar.

I jingled the keys in front of his face.

He continued plinking on his guitar.

I set my keys on his lap top which – again – was right in front of his face.

He finally set his guitar down, put his shoes on and we walked to my car.

I waited on the passenger side for him to unlock it.

Brian, “Do you have the keys?”

Me, “I gave you the keys!”

Brian, “No you didn’t.”

Me, “Yes I did!  They’re on your lap top.”

We went back and forth a little before Brian decided to retrieve them.  (I was ever so thankful that it wasn’t freezing outside.)

Brian came back and continued, “You should have told me that you were giving me the keys.”

Me, “I jingled them in front of your face.  You were playing the guitar.”

Brian, “Next time say, ‘Here are the keys.’ ”

Me, “Oh.  I’m so sorry.  I obviously should have done more to communicate that I was giving you the keys.”

    So funny! Sounds like conversation I’ve had with my husband, Paul. Ps. surgery went well. No need for chemo, should be going home today.

    LOL, sounds familiar … the distractions and inattention, then trying to act like you weren’t ….

    Yesterday, I tried to have a conversation with Charley on the way home from his chemo appt … I “signed” and over exaggerated mouthing the words (so the kids would not know what was being discussed) and he looked at me like “do I know you?” Almost ran off the road laughing so hard. LOL

    A ha ha! Your butt looks so hot right now. That made me laugh out loud. Mostly b/c it seemed like he wasn’t paying attention….
