A Rough Few Days for My Wife

20 Mar

Many months ago, my wife got upset because I blogged about her swimming with dolphins and included a picture of the event. Since then, I have made a point to not include anything embarrassing about her. However, this series of events has to be chronicled.

Besides, she has already put it on Facebook.

On Friday, she called and said that she locked herself out of the house. It was later when I discovered that she ate lunch on the garage steps and was in the midst of eating when someone delivered a package. Of course, she had to explain why she was eating lunch on the garage steps.

Later that afternoon, I had just picked up my stepdaughter and her friend from school when I got another call. This time, I let it go because it was my stepdaughter’s birthday, and I did not want my wife to blurt out something over the speaker that my stepdaughter did not need to hear.

At that point, she called my stepdaughter, who announced that we had to turn around a go to my wife’s shop to get her phone.

Yep, my wife locked herself out of the house and forgot her phone in a few short hours.

We pulled up to the shop, and I waited in the car while my stepdaughter and her friend went inside to get the phone. As I sat in a moment of peace, one of people who works at the shop came out and told me to drive around back.

Apparently, my wife forgot the birthday present when she went home.

As we looked for the present, one of the workers told me to be quiet because my stepdaughter thought I had gone to Pizza Hut to get the phone. I had no idea why I would be going to Pizza Hut, but that was probably the only excuse they could come up with on short notice.

I put myself and the present into the car and called my wife. I asked her how I was going to hide this box in my car when my stepdaughter and her friend were riding with me. She did not have an answer for that, but she asked me not to forget to stop by Pizza Hut to get her phone.

Yep, my wife locked herself out of the house; left her phone at Pizza Hut and forgot my stepdaughter’s birthday present in a few short hours.

Anyway, I went to Pizza Hut and returned to the store to get the kids. My stepdaughter was not happy that I left them at the store, but I could not tell her what I had been doing. The rest of the night went well. We ate Pizza and birthday cake. We went to the movie. My stepdaughter loved her present, and a bunch of girls spent the night.

The next morning, my wife was getting ready for work when she said something was wrong with the face cream that she was applying. It felt sticky and dry.

    LOL! Now that event you needed a picture of! Thanks for a good laugh, tell your wife I am sorry it was on her account. 🙂

      I’m glad you found it humorous. I hope she does.

    I’m picturing Sally Field from her days on the show “Brothers & Sisters” and either Richard Dreyfuss from his time on the show “Weeds” or Andy Garcia from the last five or so years.

      Those are great pictures.

    Some days, everything just goes to hell in a handbasket. I can’t even remember how many such days I’ve had, but they really ARE funny … in retrospect. They make great after dinner anecdotes. Later 🙂

      The good thing is that she thought it was funny while it was happening.

    She will have to start her own blog to get even with you.

      I’m sure she’s had some good times writing about me on Facebook.

    Good story Rick. Next year at this time your wife should think about staying in bed for the day!

      She’s not a big fan of lounging around. Maybe she needs a personal assistant.

    Well … I tell ya. My Dad put toothpaste in his hair one day instead of Brylcreem – and then went to work. At least he didn’t brush his teeth with Brylcreem.
    A little dab would have done him.

      A little dab might have done him in.
