Child Labour, among other things
Fresh now has the stomach flu-y thing that I had last week and Ice Prince had the week before.
I’m soooo tired. Cleaning the basement was more work than I expected. Didn’t help that IP kept bringing all of his toys down to amuse himself while I worked. I decided to get him to clean the bathroom because he loves to spray Windex. 10 minutes later I looked in the bathroom and the trash can was full of barely used paper towels. And the bathroom was still dirty. He would find one tiny dirty spot, spray it repeatedly and then wipe it meticulously with five paper towels. Typical man – if you don’t do it well, you won’t be asked to do it again.
Here’s a joke my Dad e-mailed me:
A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door...... The man gets up and goes to the door, where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "It is three o'clock in the morning." He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks. "No. I did not. It is three o'clock in the morning and it is pouring rain outside!!"
His wife said, "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed
The man does as he is told (of course!), gets dressed and goes out into the pouring rain. He calls out into the dark, "Hello! Are you still there?"
"Yes," comes back the answer. "Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes! Please!" comes the reply from the darkness.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing!!" replies the drunk.
