Everyday Conversations

 Today I had the following conversation with my husband via cell phone:

“Hey, there’s a package from Amazon on the porch,” he said.
“I know, I ordered it,” I answered.
“Well…what is it?”
“It’s an antler,” I replied.
“An…antler?” he finally repeated.
“Yes. An antler.”
More silence.
“I just…don’t know…why I have these conversations anymore,” he finally said, “Okay. It’s an antler. Love you…bye.”

I think he was just happy it wasn’t Cheez-its again.

in related news, a certain puppy sure does like chewing on her new elk antler

  1. Ooooh, now I want antlers. This reminds me of a story. My eldest and his wife found some antlers on the property of a house they were renting. They asked the landlord if they could have them. Sure, he said, I don't know where they came from. So anyway, they put the antlers up on eBay. They got a pretty penny for them, let me tell you. They had needed money and were praying for a financial blessing. Ha, ha. Manna antlers. God is good.


  2. Oh that gave me the first (best) smile of the day. I remember those Cheez-its.
    And there is no such thing as too many of them.

    One antler, however, should suffice.



  3. The fact that you've written like 10 posts and I didn't even know you'd started blogging again (me and your mother) is criminal. I read them all. Didn't comment on any. But read them all. Love you so much. You make me laugh (and feel marginally better about my own brand of crazy).
