rain dance

Yes, these photos were taken in the rain.

Me: "Be quick!"

Husband: "I'm just going to adjust the camera settings."

Me: !

Only he was joking. I didn't get it. Later I asked why he choose the moment when we were both standing in the rain to adjust the camera settings. This is when he told me he was joking. Oh.

You see, I don't get sarcasm. I just don't. Unless someone says something sarcastic in a really sarcastic voice I just totally miss it. I didn't realize this about myself until I was 23. So I guess that means that for 23 years of my life I understood some things that people said to me COMPLETELY OPPOSITELY. Yes, because that is often the way it is. People will say one thing and mean the opposite. Only they are being sarcastic and I am supposed to pick up on it. I don't.

Kind of like Sheldon on Big Bang Theory (also note: I, like him, have special "seats" were I like to sit). Otherwise the resemblance ends there (besides being totally brilliant, we're the same that way). ;-) See, if you knew me you would know that I wasn't being that sarcastic just there. I really do overestimate my own intelligence a substantial amount (okay, now I'm being sarcastic, I don't overestimate at all, I really am quite brilliant--though it isn't nice to say so ;-).

As for the outfit: this blazer is GREAT. It fits perfectly and is SO COMFORTABLE (I love love love comfortable). It is actually made out of a sort of sweatshirt material (cool, hey?). The belt, t-shirt, and skirt I got at the End of Clearance sale at Winners. And uh, yeah, when my mom saw me in it she said: "Oh, you look so pretty! Where did you go?"

I replied: "Nowhere."

She countered: "Where are you going?"

I counter-countered: "Home Depot." (the place to buy counters)

I think this may have been the end of the exchange. Or perhaps I said something about liking to look pretty. I don't know. But I do know this: it's always nice to score compliments from your mommy. And just maybe perhaps I dress up too fancy for Home Depot.

Oh, and as for the bathroom? I think I am doing violet. It was my first choice. Thanks for weighing in everyone! You're all GREAT!!!!

  1. Kimmmmm!!!!!! There is a huge, massive, sad, gap between us these days! I am awful at calling people in general, but I don't even have your number to TRY calling you with! What's more, I never really know if it's ok to call my friends with kids in the evenings when I am off work, because I don't want to be a nuisance!
    There is also the fact that I have scarce been at church and, even then, you are at the early service so I STILL miss you! I want to know you again! You even have a house (Soon? Already?) and I want to visit with you in it! Or anywhere else would be grand, too.
    None of this is sarcastic - I mean it in it's truest sense.
    Winners is a good thing. It makes me a very happy girl. I am sure someday Home Depot might make me a happy girl too, but not as much as Winners.
    I like the skirt -- lots!
