It's raining today and I'm relaxing around my computer...It's been a long time since I've stayed home & been able to do that.
Jimmy is cleaning the house and I'm busy reading jokes and as soon as I hear the vacuum cleaner stop, I'll get up and say,
"Oh...I didn't know it was time for us to start cleaning the house...you should have told me, so I could have helped you!"
Maybe I'll wait a while and give him time to dust & polish all the furniture first...Yes, that's what I'll do. I'll wait until I hear the dishes clanging around in the dishwater. We usually only have 2 coffee cups and 2 cereal bowls dirty anyway and that'll be a good time to jump in there and help.
Now, if you are a relative and are reading this...Don't get upset, because he loves to do housework as much as I love to play on my computer.
There is ONE thing that he definately does NOT like to do and that is sweep the floors...And I do that. We have an agreement, that if I sweep, he'll mop. But I have shown him that you can vacuum the floors by just lowering the vacuum down closer to the floor or by using the long tube thingamajiggy with the brush attachment..."Isn't that right honey?"
He's saying, "yes."
I told you that I was reading jokes and here's a good one that I'd like to share:
A woman rubbed a bottle and out popped a genie. The amazed woman asked if she got three wishes.
"Nope, sorry," the genie said. "Three-wish genies are a storybook myth. I'm a one-wish genie. So, what'll it be?"
The woman did not hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other and I want all the Arabs to love the Jews and the Americans and vice-versa. It will bring about world peace and harmony.
"The genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Lady, please be reasonable.
These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I'm out of shape after being in a bottle for five hundred years. I'm good, but not THAT good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish and please, be reasonable.
"The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to find the right man. You know, one that's considerate and fun, likes to cook and help with the house cleaning, is great in bed and gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time, and is faithful.
That is what I wish for -- a good man."
The genie sighed heavily and said, "Let me see the freaking map again."
