Weekend tidbits from Casa de Motherscribe



FOR SALE: Gorgeous caramel brown leather sofa & chair. Great condition.

SOLD: To a single man with a hottie girlfriend. The hottie girlfriend patted the furniture. Patted it. I don't think I need to say more.


Single man ecstatic!

Direct Quote from single man:
This is the DEAL of the CENTURY!

It's a Win! Win!.......... JCK & E earn profit of $450.

Most importantly...

JCK's theory on leather furniture & men has been proven.
*********************************

Conversation at local park:

Male Friend who helped E maneuver the leather furniture into the house over the BlogHer conference weekend while JCK was off campus (those sneaky, sneaky boys...) says to his wife: Do you believe JCK sold the leather furniture?!!!

Wife to JCK: What IS IT about the leather couch, anyway?
*********************************


GIRL
: You know when you say you're dusting books? It sounds like you are putting dust ON them.

GIRL definitely has a point. In fact, having children really shows you how ridiculous and nonsensical the English language is at times. It has given me renewed respect for anyone learning our language. And...yes, occasionally I do dust.
*********************************

While unpacking items placed in a shopping bag by my mother, I noticed the shop's name... Soma Intimates....

Mmmmm...methinks the fishnets do not fall far from the tree....

Congrats on the couch! Now what?

I think you may have stumbled across the perfect title of a children's book for adults: Pat the Furniture.

I have to admit to an inordinate fondness of leather furniture myself. I think it goes along with being a book lover to a degree. I have a vinyl love seat as it is.

Patted it? hmmmm

What does "dust" mean?

KEEP BELIEVING

Oh, dear. I can only hope you sprayed lysol on your eyes to get the image of your couch out. UGH.

See this is why I don't dust... my books are dusty enough. No need to work at adding more. ;-)

I love that you made a profit out of it! The picture made me think of that Friends episode with the couch, "Pivot! Pivot!" I miss that show.

Jennifer H said...

That's so funny that she patted it. Are you sure she wasn't a man dressed as a woman?

Dusting? I'll have to look up that word in the dictionary.

Have you read GIRL the book "The King Who Rained?" She'd love it!

I say the girlfriend was patting the sofa as a gesture of having lost the battle but not the war. She is biding her time, friends.
