So no comic today either. Andy has been working over-time (yay! shoes!) so I haven't had the heart to crack the old whip (he has sensitive skin).
Even though Andy had to work, my brother Dan met my mom and I at the home improvement store and made us do uncool things like buy lumber stuff for my mom's floor and he was not taking "but I'm sleepy!" for an answer. I was NOT given a chance to look at flowers so this Home Depot trip was NOT fun. I was driving Andy's car because I had just taken Tazz to the groomers. For that I need the big car because, even though he's drugged up (that's the only way the groomers will cut his hair)(he is the DEVIL), Tazz goes completely insane when he knows he's being taken somewhere where the may stick needles in him or excrete things from his anus. Breakfast anyone? So I need to take him in his kennel and then drag his butt out.
Here he is at the vet.
The lumber stuff we needed was about 20,000 feet long and didn't fit in Andy's car. The options were to leave the back door open (the very heavy back door that opens like a regular door instead of up), tie it to the roof or option Bee, have some of it hanging out the passenger side window.
I say option "Bee" because that was my idea. Dan offered to drive the car but I was not going to dare drive his beloved Cadillac, Maxine. I nervously checked the mirrors, turned on my hazards and then took off.
I drove on the right lane thinking I'd be driving slow but then I had the feeling that the freakin wood things were going to take out windows, trees, civilians and every sign within a 5 mile radius so I switched to the left lane and zoom zoom zoomed all the way home. Sure the things flapped away and I thought that, with enough speed, I could pole vault my way out of traffic but I managed to control the urge.
In the meantime, my poor Andy worked 14 hours on Friday and 8 hours on Saturday. The thought of him working so hard tired me out so I decided to take a nap.
Word to your mother.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL YOU LUCKY MOTHERS!
