It's the day before summer vacation in our town and let's just say Minion #1 is beyond ready to start his summer vacation. Of course Minion #2 is jealous because #1 gets a vacation...yet #2 doesn't grasp the concept that he has been on a summer vacation for five years now. #3 joins in the animosity even though he has no clue what-so-ever why he is being a whiny little turd. My wife is in for a fun time this summer...the Minions are putting the FU in fun.
|Hear no, See no and Speak no...bullshit.|
As I was saying, I came home, we have a mudroom before you enter our house to dump our shoes, coats and everything else that the Minions feel the need to drop there, as I entered the first door I could tell it was going to be a fan-fucking-tastic night. How could I tell that you ask? Simple, if I can hear the blood curdling screeches coming from the Minions and the over powering yells coming from my wife, I know I should head back out and try coming home again.
|Dad! Mom fed #3 chili again!|
So after much yelling, pushing and one punch to the head (from each other, not us) the three Minions were sent to shower, brush their teeth and go to bed. While they were getting ready for bed, which is quite the ordeal by the way and can possibly have its own post, my wife and I had a conversation that combined about four conversations that we have had in the past.
"I tried telling you we could have left them in LL Bean while we were in Maine."
"No, they know how to survive in the wilderness, not how to handle the Minions."
"Yeah, true. What's the cutoff age at the baby-safe haven drop off sites, you know like at the hospitals?"
"I think they need to be newborns."
"Shit, we could have started over and made better ones."
"Well you know it's the man's fault when something goes...wrong."
"Wait, how can the men get blamed for what happens in there, all we do is take thirty to sixty seconds of your time, fire in hole and plant the seed. You are the ones who cook it for nine months, we have no control over what happens in there after the initial squirt."
"Ugh, do I really have to explain this again, didn't you take biology in school?"
"I went to a vocational school you know that, besides you are the ones who can overcook or under cook them. Look we have one of each! #1 came out when the timer went off, #2, well let's say stayed in there a little too long and #3 could use a little more baking."
"Whatever, what do you want for dinner?"
"Peace and quiet?"
"You know, we make fun of the parents who send their kids to camp all summer long..."
"Well if we saved enough money, we could have a really relaxing summer next year."
"What? Not a good idea?"
"Actually, that may have been the most brilliant thing you've ever said."
"You're right it was a stup...wait, what did you say? I'm brilliant?"
"Don't push it..."
