While I Was Gone

I was at the gym.

The Pres was home.

He got company.

Walking in the door, I said, "Honey, what's burning?"

Nonchalantly, he responded in a calm, almost monotone voice, "I think it's the box for your internet."

ME:  "Did you call Charter?"

HIM, in an excited exuberant tone:  "Hon, you should see all the turkeys that were in the yard this morning!  I took pictures with your little camera.There were at least thirty!"

ME, placing my hand on the modem:  "Honey,  I'm more concerned about why the modem is so hot and smells like it's burning NOT how many turkeys were in the yard.  I think you should call them."

HIM:  "I guess."

ME:  MEN!!

One more thing.  A few more things.

The technician came. 

The modem was replaced.

No melting plastic odor.

No turkeys in the yard.

I am home.

Cute mosaic, right?


Sharing what's real with you and

Look at all those turkeys. The mosaic is great with all those angles it provides an optical illusion.

He obviously is not a blogger. Otherwise he would have known that the priority here was the modem. :)

What a great bunch of turkeys! Men do seem to be on a different wave length sometimes.

That's a little scary. Then again, I am kind of paranoid about stuff catching on fire.

I just popped over from Mosaic Monday for a visit. I had to laugh albeit at the time I know it wasn't funny! Men, bless their little confused souls! :D I love the turkeys, we have oodles in our yard all the time too! I'm a new follower and look forward to future posts that I'm sure will make me smile!
Hugs from New Hampshire,
