Last night before bed.
Romeo: I like all of the fall decorations.
Me: Thanks. Did you like the pumpkin in the foyer I painted?
Romeo: (a confused, slightly nervous look) Ummmm…yeah.
Me: (knowing that look) Did you get what it said?
Romeo: (look a husband gets when he knows he is getting ready to “fail” a wife question and answer session) Ummm…yeah….I liked it.
Me: Liked what?
Romeo: Ummm….what it said.
Me: Really. What did it say?
Romeo: Itch-a- bad?
Me: No…..Ick-Uh-Bod. Do you remember who that is?
Romeo: (Eyes begin to glaze) Ummm….No. But, I liked your pumpkin.
Me: (Hoitily and slightly irritated) Ichabod Crane? You know…..”The Midnight Ride of Ichabod……” wait a minute……that’s Paul Revere. Ummm……You know, the one from Sleepy Hollow? The pumpkin for a head?
Romeo: (Glazed look, disinterested face) No, but I liked your pumpkin.
Me: Well….thanks, but I spelled it wrong. I didn’t follow MMS’s tutorial and I should have. I’m going to fix it. I blogged about it and was so excited to show everyone and then realized I spelled it wrong. It was sort of like that time that Freebird walked into the room so excited about “Spirt Day” at school. She and her best friend were dressing as “Dumb and Dumber”. She ran into my room showing me her shirt and said, “Mom, look! Isn’t it cute?”
She had painted her “role” name on the back of her shirt. She turned around to show me and said, “See! D-U-M-M-E-R! Isn’t it cute?”
Remember how I read the back of her shirt and said, “Did you mean to spell it that way?” And then Freebird told me, “Ummmm…Yeah….Duh, Mom….I’m Dumber and Whitney’s Dumb.”
And I just said, “It’s perfect honey. By the way…..you spelled Dumber wrong.”
It was hilariously appropriate.
Doesn’t this remind you of that time honey? You know….me trying to show my literature skills…and bam…spell my “ichabod” wrong?
Me: Doesn’t it? Honey????
This morning in kitchen.
Son: “Mom…what does “itch bad” mean on the white pumpkin by the front door and why in the world are you using white pumpkins?”
This is my life people.
I need you.
If you were worried because of yesterday’s post.…..
I fixed it.
I used Goof off wipes and a fingernail. Then I re-applied the blue…..and made my stripes a little wider.
Let’s see if YOU all are still awake and who responds.
Is this fall display on my dining room table too much?
I’m worried it may look like I’m opening a fruit and vegetable stand.
Who knew who Ichabod was? Don’t feel bad if you didn’t. It wasn’t just the guys who didn’t.
I thought a black top hat would be neat around or on, an Ichabod pumpkin. Didn’t Ichabod wear a black top hat? UPDATE: He wore the three cornered type of hat. DUH!
Too much? Would I be making it like my vegetable stand on my dining room table?
Let’s see who stayed awake to respond.
