Random stuff heard around the house


Morning Movie Conversation

We had to be up rather early for an appointment so I was sitting in the living room, putting on my makeup when Rich came in.

Rich: What the hell are you watching? What is this?

Me: The Devil’s Due – a horror movie.

Rich: Why can’t you watch Al Roker and see the weather in New Mexico or something normal? Why are you watching a horror movie at 9:00 AM?

Me: Because there wasn’t a Lifetime movie on.


Not the Right P

We were putting some photos in a weekly themed batch on a group page on Facebook.

Rich: You could use the peacock and I’ll use the P51 Mustang from the air show.

later that night…….

Me: Where is the phone you want of the P51? I’m scrolling through them.

Rich: Slow down

Me: I’m not to the cars yet.

Rich: It’s not a car, you moron. It’s a plane.

Me: No wonder I couldn’t find it.

Lifetime Warning Conversation

Was talking to Mel about a guy she might like and I’ll have to change some of the conversation but here’s the gist of it.

Mel: Well, he does have some issues in his past.

Me: I’d go for it – just be cautious and all that.

Mel: I know, but he’s supposedly much better.

Me: Well, just don’t end up being a Lifetime movie.

Apocalypse Stash Conversation

Me: You know when the ‘pocalypse comes, I’m eating all of this expensive tuna. (Genova Tonno)

Rich: No, we’ll have to give it to the cat when he runs out of food.

Me: What? We’ll have to eat the cat food!

Rich: I am not eating cat food.

Me: You will if you’re starving. Those people in One Second After ate grease out of the grease traps. (awesome book, by the way) Cat food is a step above!

Good Deeds Conversation

Tonight I decided to trim Swan’s hair (she’s a pekingese) and give her a bath. Due to her long hair, she tends to get knots so I tried to tackle one of those first, then she pooped on me while doing so.

Me to Rich: See what happens when you try to do something good for someone? You get sh*t on.

She’s a dog, not a someone human but you get the gist. Alas, this hair cutting will commence again tomorrow. By the way, I just trimmed her hair a few weeks ago.

Pennies from Heaven Conversation

I was sweeping up some trash and picked up a penny.

Rich: What did you pick out of the trash?

Me: A penny.

Rich: You wasted more time picking that up than what it’s worth.

Me: I just read the other day that if you see a penny on the floor it was sent by an angel and means they are watching over you.

Rich: …………..

Me: Seriously, this means an angel is looking out for me.

Rich: My angel needs to start dropping some twenties then.

Logic Conversation

Me: Into the storm is playing at the Regency and Pier Park. 

Rich: I’m not going to the Regency. 

Me: But we will have to fight the crowds of tourists at Pier Park. 

Rich: No one is here. 

Me: Why not, it’s August?

Rich: Look at the security cameras at work, no one is here, the parking lot is empty. 

Me: Maybe they are all at the movies. 

Angel vs Devil Conversation

There’s a quiz you can take that has been making its rounds amongst our friends. It’s how evil or good you are and a couple of the questions were similar to:

You see a turtle in traffic. Do you risk angering drivers by moving it somewhere safe or leave it.

You need to run into the store fast and the only spot is a handicapped one. Do you take it?

Rich: Some of the people got almost 100% evil.

Me: Yeah, I’m wondering how they answered all of their questions. Apparently a lot of people are running over turtles and parking in handicapped spots.

Unicorn Conversation

Driving around town….

Rich: Didn’t that used to be a uniform store there? Now it’s something else.

Me: I thought you said unicorns at first.

Rich: Yeah, because they sell unicorns at stores now.
