Men Do Stupid Stuff Part Deux

Love my husband.


I married him AND I was sober.

Seriously I do but sometimes he drives me nuts.

Ella is now going to preschool in another county where we really don’t know anyone. Which is really no big deal except for the fact that the teachers  don’t know that I am married to a ding dong and that Ella nor I can really help it.

Ella has been bringing Dr. Seuss books home with an accompanying stuffed animal so we can sit down nightly and read a story.

A certain stuffed animal has come up missing at the school and no one can remember who was the last to receive it in their backpack. The teacher emailed all parents with a brief note  that said something to the effect of….

“We are missing a stuffed mongoose from the classroom.

Please check around your house to see if you have it and return to school please.


Simple enough.

Little did I know when I filled out all those forms the first day of school they would actually email him instead of me….but they did.

And this was his reply…

“Ella brought home a live opossum. We haven’t returned him yet as he is not house broken.




We haven’t had a reply from the school.

Guess who has to pick her up every day?

I am so embarrassed.

    Hilarious. Reminds me of myself as a girl. I used to bring home live frogs, caterpillars, etc. Once, my mama told me she was cleaning out our lunch boxes after school and opened mine to find a frog inside!

    Whatever boldness I had as a girl about amphibians is LONG gone. A few years ago, I decided to clean out a fountain in our back yard. I was using a rake to heft out leaves from the water. Imagine my shock when, instead of leaves, I hefted out a bull frog!

    Our gazes locked. It might have croaked (I think it stuck out its tongue), but I just started shrieking. I threw the rake AND the frog somewhere and hightailed it back in the house.

    That was the last time I got close with a frog (or any of its cousins).

    (The comment is not for this post but I thought you wouldn't see it if I just posted it on a year old post. I found your blog through google and fell right on a post about a shack with a message painted on its side, it's about a snowy day, I'm not sure you remember. And I think you must already know what I'm about to tell, or it won't matter anymore, but oh well. The message is from a song called Our Lady Of Sorrows. As most of My Chemical Romance fanbase are teens, I'm almost sure that a teenager wrote that to pass the message on. Nice thing you found it, it's one of the most meaninful lyrics from the band. Sorry for taking your time. And, by the way, great blog)

    Love it! Just when we think we have a little dignity our husbands or children find a way to bring us to our senses.
