Two Problems Solved For The Price Of One

Two problems solved for the price of one

TWO PROBLEMS SOLVED FOR THE PRICE OF ONE

One of the fire alarms was chirping.

We couldn’t figure out which one.

The noise was driving us crazy.

We finally found it.

It was the one in the Grown Son’s room.

He was still asleep in the middle of the morning.

Also, his room is a pigsty.

Bob was cursing and shouting because he couldn’t set up the ladder due to the mess on the floor.

The Grown Son was cursing and shouting because we were disturbing his sleep.

Then Bob couldn’t find our battery stash, so he cursed and shouted some more.

Finally, the problem was resolved.

The battery got changed, the ladder got put away, and the house was filled with blissful silence.

The Grown Son, with much contemptuous eye rolling and a bit of embittered muttering, started a load of laundry.

Yay, two problems solved for the price of one.

My Swan Song for 2020

My Swan Song

MY SWAN SONG FOR 2020

The sh**show that is 2020 just keeps on giving.

I did a load of wash with some Kleenex in a pocket.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be in the backyard, plucking thousands and thousands of Kleenex shards off of all of the clothes.

And cursing.

With any luck, this will be my swan song for 2020.
