Humans are Weird

23 Jun

That’s right.  I said it out loud.  Humans are weird.  Mine have *got* to be at the top of the list.  Rolls piggy eyes.  I think this sign, “Beware All Ye Who Enter” should be on our front door. It was a strange Sunday yesterday.  Mom and dad got up and piddled around the Hotel Thompson.  Then mom sat on her sofa and looked at dad across from her sitting on his sofa playing what of course – Angry Birds.  That’s when it started.  I wanted to know what was going on so I jumped on the sofa with mom.  It kind of went like this:

MOM:  “Whatcha doing?”

DAD:  “Nothing much.”

Oh poor daddy of mine – when will you ever learn NOT to say those words to mom – snorts

MOM:  “Good, we need to clean the bathroom today”.

DAD:  “I’m busy.”

MOM:  “No you’re not.  You just said you were doing nothing.”

Mom wins every battle this way – snorts.  Daddy mumbled something about when he found this “WE” fellow he was going to beat him up bad.  But he was a good man, he got up and followed mom down the hall.  You’re probably saying, “What’s the big deal?  It’s just cleaning the bathroom”.  That’s where you would be wrong – snorts.  Mom was wanting to CLEAN the entire bathroom – as in walls, tub, sink, floor, cabinets, changing shower curtain – the entire works.  And of course with mom’s arthritis, she can’t get in and grove like she once did.  That’s where daddy comes in – she needed his quote “Brute strength”.

They went in and shut the door.  They wouldn’t let any of us anipals inside with them.  We heard a lot of giggles.  A lot of laughter.  Something about WE was going to have to die from daddy.  Things got thrown in the hallway.  The laundry basket, trash, clothes – what *WERE* they doing in there?  They were in the bathroom for over an hour!

Then the door opened – WOW – you could hear the angels singing it was that sparkly.  I was in piggy awe.  And then mom did the thing she said she “deserved” after all of that – she took the smelliest bubble bath I’ve ever seen.

Do your parents do weird things like this?

    To answer “nothing much” is dangerous… my dead learnt that during the years. He always grabs the phone and says: I have to do an important phonecall. Then he waits till my mom is out of sight while typing around on the phone or while he looks for the phone numer of someone god only knows.

      Snorts. You would think after almost 24 years dad would have this figured out by now but he doesn’t. He falls for it every.single.time. And who is this We guy? Dad wants to hurt him really, REALLY bad. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        I never saw the guy named We (or Wee?)… I always run when I hear : WE could … or the hardcore version: WE have to…

        We’ve never seen him here either but dad can’t stand him. Snorts. He gets dad into a lot of trouble around here. But mom talks about him a lot. I guess she knows him pretty well. XOXO – Bacon

    Hehe my humans are so weird too. I guess it is a human thing. Your Mom is good though! She got your daddy in one shot. Poor daddy needs to learn for next time. 😉

    we have an agreement in our home – mom does everything in the house – except the bathrooms – that is 100% dads domain and he does an awesome job

      06/23/2014 at 6:15 pm

      Snorts. Usually dad does all the cleaning since he stays home. But there are things they tag team together. This was one – snorts. Dad just didn’t know. XOXO – Bacon

    OMD! We just had an ENTIRE week of this at our home!! Mom took a weeks leave and she cleaned out the house from top to bottom! There were like 187 bags of stuff she donated and another 187 bags of stuff she threw out and every night she’d sit down with a glass of wine & tell us how tired and sore she was and how she hoped dada appreciated what she was doing. We guarded our beds and toys just in case she got any funny ideas about “cleaning” them out too!
    HOOMANS – they really are a different species!

      Oh dear piggy heavens. Is this what I’m in plan for? I don’t know if I can survive. Mom can stay out of my bedroom – that’s for sure. There’s nothing in here that needs to be donated or thrown out – nope not at all. It’s going to be a tough couple of weeks for sure. Can I come over for a while to live? Do you have a bedroom available? XOXO – Bacon
