Today has been a little weird for me.
Vince and I had an appointment in Carthage at 2 p.m. and we planned to eat BBQ while in Carthage. We love Boomer’s and the people who own the place are so nice. They’re closed on Mondays or we would have eaten there while in Carthage yesterday.
So, when I got up this morning, I went and put on “going out in public clothes”, which means T-shirts with no holes. I put on makeup. I used the curling iron to tame the frizzies and slapped on a tiny bit of makeup so I was ready to leave the house at 6 a.m.
About 10 a.m., Vince said “I’m going to get more buckets for tomatoes.” Well, that’s kinda strange. 1. He bought buckets for tomatoes on Monday. 2. We’re going out later and could have bought buckets.
Me: Didn’t you buy buckets for tomatoes on Monday.
Vince: We need more.
Me: How many buckets did you buy?
Vince: Five. That’s how many tomatoes you said you wanted to plant.
Me: I think I said 10 but I can live with five.
Vince: I’d better get more before they’re all gone.
Me: We’re going out after while? Want to get stop and get them while we’re out?
Vince: No . . I’ll go now.
He left about 10:30 and it’s less than 5 miles to where he was going. He was gone over 2 hours and I was kinda starting to get concerned. He didn’t have his phone with him but he returned and I said “I was wondering what took you so long!” He said “I bought my birthday present!” That’s exactly what I figure he was doing. 🙂
Later, we had this conversation. Men!
Me: How many more buckets did you get?
Vince: How many did you ask me to get?
Me: I think I asked you go get 5 more for tomatoes and 2 for cucumbers.
Vince: Yep, that’s what I got . . 12.
Me: Are you saying 12 total?
Vince: No. 5 Monday and 12 today.
OK . . makes sense to me.
Then we went to Carthage, took care of business there, ate at Boomer’s and came home.
It’s cloudy, I can hear rain dripping off the roof onto the metal fireplace vent and it’s making me so sleepy . . nap time!
