A Letter to the Man I Love

Dear Corey,

Have I told you lately how much I love you? How much I appreciate all that you do? Have I thanked you for not so much as raising an eyebrow when I told you of my plans to go off to some sort of tropical locale with my girlfriends in February? Did I even tell you that I am going away in February?

I think you are one of the smartest people I know. You are an amazing scientist who is part of something really big! I just know that you are going to help invent a drug to help people who suffer from Parkinson's Disease! The only person I know who is smarter than you is our friend Joe. He knows something about practically everything, so he beats you by a hair. I am hopeful that your smarty-pants genes were able to overcome my so-so genes when we reproduced so that our kids will have a fighting chance to be smart and get into good colleges.

I do have a question. Help me understand why you chose to clean up Ella's vomit with my shark this morning.

Love you,


Hausfrau

Oh yeah see, book smarts versus common sense. Apparently ya can't have both. Bummer.

Sorry Ella's sick.

Good for you going away in Feb. too!

Honestly, in our house, if I don't have to clean up the vomit, I don't really care WHAT Hubby uses to clean up the vomit. I'm THAT appalled by vomit. Wuss, I know... :)

Oh god. Throw it out and get a new one. Shark, that is. Keep the husband. Maybe.

This is so my husband. He is literally (and I don't use that word lightly,)the smartest person I know. But he can be such a freaking moron around the house/

Your husband is actually the smart one.

You said: "Help me understand why you chose to clean up Ella's vomit with my shark this morning."

Website for the Shark said: "it's powerful enough to even vacuum up chunky food messes with ease."

I say: Chunky Food Messes and Vomit are actually one and the same.

That may be what the ad says, but the ad does not say, "It's powerful enough to vacuum up chunky food messes that have been regurgitated and are in a cocoon of sputum."
