Auction Ends Monday at 3:30pm

Real life conversation from the Farklepants marital bedroom:

Upon noticing the unmade bed...
Mr. Farklepants: You didn't make the bed today.
Tootsie: I don't know why you keep me around, really.
Mr. Farklepants: I'm just waiting for the bidding to end on eBay.
Tootsie: Is your description of me accurate?
Mr. Farklepants: Yes.
Tootsie: Tall, blonde who occasionally shaves her legs and sometimes makes the bed?
Mr. Farklepants: Too honest?
Tootsie: It could explain the lack of takers.

LOL! Is Mr. Farklepants going to have to pay someone to take you?

maybe if he threw in some of mr daddy's starbucks pins?
nah. I'll bid on ya anyway!

It sounds like a better eBay description than Stephanie might write about me. Well, I guess it would depend on 'when' she put me up for auction. Some weeks I am a price, others, just the toad.

I bet if you tossed in the picture of you post-parachute, you could get that bid higher. Just make sure the bidding does not end on a holiday....

Now, I'm just wondering why your response wasn't, "Huh? Make it your DAMN SELF!"??? But that's just me... ;-)

I didn't know you could put your family up on the auction block! Because, trust me, there are days I'd like to sell the kids off.

Just kiddin. Sort of. :)

And bed making is one of my OCD weirdnesses. If it happens to go unmade all day (which I can count on one hand in 15 years of marriage) I make my husband get out of bed, I make it, and then we crawl back in.

Okay:
1st: "Farklepants Marital Bedroom" just sounds...wrong. But I'm sure it's lovely. That, too, just sounds wrong.
2nd: I don't REMEMBER the last time I made the bed. Really.

At least you occasionally shave your legs. In the winter, I don't think there's an adverb that properly describes my pathetic lack of attention...

That's awesome--witty banter is so critical in True Love!

BusyDad said...

Bidding starts at what? And if I pick up locally, can he waive the shipping?

HRH said...

He's a lucky, lucky man.

GAH! I'd hate to see MY eBay description.

By the way, I'd totally buy you. :)

He must not know that hot mommy bloggers are very desirable...whether they make beds or not.

Or mrs. g., whether or not they wash their underwear.

At my house, Mr. H is captain of the bed-making when he's home. The leg-shaving tends to pick up a bit when he's home, too. Please don't ask him to confirm this.

JCK said...

I'm with Mrs. G. Definitely hot mommy bloggers are coveted.

I told my husband that since he is keeping all the X chromosome sperm to himself, that I bought a Romanian baby girl on eBay and she should be arriving soon in a FedEx box with air-holes...

Also, I never make the bed...I just straighten it up when we climb in each night. And the other week I went so long without shaving that I found that I don't need to pass the razor over the top portions of my calves...absolutely no hair grows there! who knew?

Tall. Blonde. I think you'd have many takers.
