Do you ever have one of those moments? The “GO AWAY!” and leave me alone moments. I was laying here in bed, listening to the dryer ding that it was done, watching the spinning wheel of death on my tv because comcast wasn’t working, thinking about what to write about. I had begun to generate a now forgotten list in my head when my husband sits down next to me.
Him: “So is the tv still out?”
Him: “Do you want to watch a show downstairs?”
Him: “What are you doing?”
Me: “My blog.”
Him: “I’m thinking of watching SNL, or do you want me to save it for you?”
Me: “No, I’ll watch it later.”
Him: “When is later, because if this thing keeps acting up, we may need a new one. Should I save it for you? Never mind, I’ll watch something else. I’m going to feed my fish, are you joining me downstairs?”
Me: Look of death with a blank screen. Then I type the title. Go Away.
Him: “So that is what you will write about today.” He leaves the room. Does something in the hall, and comes back to peer over my shoulder as I have begun to type.
Him: “I think I will watch you type and comment as you do it.”
We both start laughing, and, thankfully, he leaves. If not, I may have thrown the remote at his head. Now I have to generate the since forgotten list of ideas and moments I could reflect on, and/or write on. But this moment will be remembered, laundry is calling my name again, and he has gone into the laundry room. That can only mean one thing. He is going to be coming back. 🙂
