I don’t know what’s going on with Husbandrinka.
I merely mentioned that everyone who reads my blog hates him and is on my side on the whole “sorry I can’t make Young Ladrinka’s birthday party with eleven of his closest friends” and he gets really defensive.
I don’t like people who can’t face reality. It’s not becoming.
“Did you happen to mention to these people that the reason that I can’t make it to the party is because you moved the time from 2 p.m. to noon without telling me and I have a 10 am meeting that I scheduled for the morning specifically because I wanted to be at my son’s birthday party?” he asks.
If there’s one thing I hate is people who try to overwhelm other people with “facts” just to try to make a point.
“Well, I didn’t want to burden my readers with all the minutiae. They wouldn’t be able to follow that stuff.” I make a vague hand gesture around my temple that signifies that people who read this blog are much too beautiful and gorgeous to bother with concepts of time. And by “my temple” I mean my house of worship. Why, what were you thinking?
“Right. Your readers,” he says.
“Why are you putting emotional quotes around readers?” I ask him. It’s not like I said my public or anything.
“Never mind. I just think you should be accurate. Did you mention in this blog post that I will be at the party, just half an hour late?”
Excuse me, do I need to have legal representation at this point? Because I don’t understand why I’m being subjected to this cross-examination. I know my rights. Arrest me or release me! (Thanks, Law & Order!)
“No,” I confess. There’s only so much grilling that I can take. I’m delicate.
“And why not?”
“Because I thought that people would be less sympathetic towards me if they knew that you’d be there after all.”
“I’ll see you at 12:30,” he said.
And to his credit, he did get there at 12:30. Just as the ambulance was whisking me away, so the boys weren’t unattended for long.
Fine, there was no ambulance.
But wouldn’t it have been a much better post if there had been?!
This is what you’re missing.
Please make sure to thank Husbandrinka on your way out.
