the perk? #26

I don’t know if this is a true ‘perk’… but what the hell. At least it’s funny…

the perk.

the perk.
[no longer weekly… just whenever-the-fuck-I-feel-like-it… or need it?]

My daughter and I had an interesting exchange this afternoon. I don’t even remember how the topic came up…

me: Do you know how they churn butter? Have you ever seen the thing they use?Β 

my daughter: Yeah, we saw that at [a colonial village historical site]. They said that’s how they did it in the 80s. Did you do that when you were a kid?

me: How the hell old do you think I am? I’m sure they meant the 1880s, honey…Β 


In other news, dinner has to be prepared. Nightly! Can you believe that? I think the universe expects an awful lot from me. At least my corn is having fun…



Sometimes, you get something for nothing. Seriously, that’s a thing. It’s never a great thing but hell, it’s free. Who am I to say no? My husband brought home this free gift from his trip to the hardware store… scissors! Wooo!


Btu I don’t need any scissors. I told him to keep them.

But I’ll take the package…
