Yes, exactly

As Chip and I cleaned up the dinner dishes, we went over the plan of action for tomorrow. Nerds that we are, we have always had daily POAs, but now that there are two kiddos in the house, well, they're kind of crucial. Sadly, there was a serious breakdown in communications tonight.

D: Okay, Jenny is coming over at 9 a.m. tomorrow, so I need to be showered by the time you leave.
C: Okay. Wait. You said you need to be showered in Italian beef?
D: What?
C: You said you need to be showered in Italian beef?
D: Yes, Chip. That's exactly what I said. I need to be showered in Italian beef before our friend comes over to visit.
C: Well, what did you say?
D: What do you think I said? For real.
C: I don't know. All I can think of now is Italian beef.

Seriously, you would think that he was the one getting up at 4 a.m. every day to feed our son. Honestly.


  1. In Chip's defense you mention Italian beef at least 10 times a day. The one time you weren't, this happens.

  2. Andy, you make a good point. This is why I should stick to words like jalopy and ramshackle. No misunderstandings with those.

  3. Other favorites include dolt, capricious, erudite, pedantic, and benign.
