So since I haven’t touched base with the ‘rents this week, I got a call and invite for Sunday breakfast. Scratch that, DASH got the invite I was his plus one. We got there at 10am, for sausage and scrambled eggs.. mmmm… Only not.
Marika: You didn’t put milk in the eggs.
Mom: I never use milk when I’m scrambling eggs.
Marika: Yes you do. I use milk when I’m scrambled eggs and I learned to make them from you.
Dad: I knew these eggs tasted funny!
Mom: I don’t use milk anymore because I am trying to make HEALTHY MEALS! I use seltzer water to make them fluffy!
At this point Mom starts salting a platter of tomatoes and passes them to me.
Marika: So let me see if I get this straight, you want us to eat healthier so no milk in the eggs, but you are giving us a platter of SALTED tomatoes.
Dad: That makes no sense!
I got the evil eye from Momster after that , and quite the “I- haven’t-made-scrambled-eggs-with-milk-for-8-years, and-HE-never-knew-then-you-open- your-big-mouth.” lecture when we went for a walk, and I was getting it in the car too till we passed a garage sale on the way back home.
Of course we found treasure!
Hit the theme music! Is this not a steal for $2? Considering the price ranges anywhere from $30- $50 on ebay for the same exact bottle, I’d say yes! And that is not even taking into account that this thing comes with a genie and at least 3 wishes! SCORE !
And check this beyond adorable casserole dish. Considering that it does not come with a mystical creature with wish granting abilities, I only payed $1. I will not be had.
The best part is that the seller is holding an outdoor table and chairs that are perfect for the porch - and I am picking it up on Wednesday for $30. It is EXACTLY what I want too!
Let’s see, bullied my Mom, good deal at the yard sale, this is a win day! What could go wrong?
Because you know something did, right?
We got home, and Dad let’s us know that “Something happened and it’s not really Dash’s fault. It was an accident.”
I honestly was thinking some sort projectile vomit thing on the new carpet. My Mom doesn’t like him walking on that thing if she thinks his nails are too long. It was actually a little worse. Apparently my Little Man was running around the house as he does, he got tangled in an electrical cord and knocked over a lamp.
Believe it or not the lamp is okay. Dash is okay. The new wood floor that my parents just put in? Not so much, there is a huge gash in it where the lamp hit the floor. Dash was shamed with his tail tucked between his legs and looking down and my sweet mom sat down with him and comforted him and told him it was okay. I almost felt bad about the egg thing, ALMOST.
So what does a doggie do after he’s been over at his Oma and Opa’s house, playing , snacking and destroying a new wood floor?
Wreaking havoc can take a lot out of a guy.
