sneaky saturday list

Banjo Man planned to sneak out to Kohl’s, a 25-minute drive from our house, to shop.

But I saw his “to do” list for the weekend.  Weeding, bank, post office, something about the lawn mower bag, the dump, Kohl’s…

Me:  Kohl’s???  You’re going to Kohl’s without me???

Banjo Man:  I didn’t want to make you feel bad that you had to work and couldn’t go.

Me:  Huh.

Banjo Man, shoving a sale flyer toward me:  “I need pants.  There’s a sale.  What does this coupon thing on the front mean?”

I peeled off the sticker.  We get 30% off everything.

Banjo Man:  That’s a good deal, right?  I need pants.

Me, thinking, adding, subtracting pages and hours:  If we don’t go until after 5, and if I can get 16 pages written and still have time to shower, at 4:30, then I can go.  Eight hours, two pages an hour…

Banjo Man:  Uh, I really need pants.

Me:  Do not talk to me until 5.  I’m busy.

    Did you get to go? Did Banjo Man get pants? Did you get an appropriate and well-deserved reward for working hard all day? Hope so.

    • He bought three pairs of pants and four shirts. It was very exciting for him. I bought myself a giant sundress and had a nervous breakdown looking at my naked self in the full-length mirror in the dressing room. I wish I’d stayed home. 😦
