I had this idea to start listin' things....from that movie High Fidelity.
John Cusak's character made list...Top 5 Breakups....Top 5 Dream Jobs....Top 5 Breakup Music. I think I'll just do 3...not 5 ...I don't think I could come up with 5 every time.....and still editorialize....and to be "too long"........ and not be limited to Top but just 3 things....worst....embarrassing.....best....you get the idea.
If you haves ideas for a List or want to play along feel free to do so.....
3 of the Worst Buys Ever:
1) My Antique Lawn Furniture. Click Here.
Roy and I were drivin' thru some small town not too far from home, when I noticed MY LAWN FURNITURE on SomeOne's Porch!!!
"Stop the Truck!" I don't know why I even utter the words....to this day he has NEVER stopped the truck!
"Honey! Stop the Truck!" He's lookin' at me like "What the Hell Now?"
"There! Back there, on that porch was my lawn furniture!!! Go Back Right NOW!"
Roy just grinned....that 'possum eatin' shit one.....and took a deep breath and said, "Babe, I can say with great confidence that THAT was not YOUR furniture."
$80 worth ....gone.....where I haven't been told....but gone.... poof...UP IN SMOKE!!
2) My Memory Foam Pillow.
It just sucks great big green donkey dicks. $25 dollars shot to hell!! It's like sleepin' on a concrete block!! I feel compelled to use it....it's on the bed.....but off to the side.....back to goose down for me!!
I wonder if those expensive mattresses get all hard....that would be just sad!
3) My Lovely Home.
Have you seen the Money Pit...Tom Hanks movie......Where this couple buys their dream home and pour bucket loads of money into it. That's my home....without all the people runnin' around tryin' to fix it....or the bucket loads of money either. It's just me and Roy.
It's over 100 years....and it shows!
We were watchin' some HandyMan show, and this very HandyMan put up a 4 seasons room in a weekend!!
Before I could say one word, Roy said, "That's why men are always in deep shit! Their wives watch this shit and expect their husband to be able to do that! He has the know how and the tools!"
Roy has all those neato tools.
Is it askin' too much that he actually use them??
You have no idea how many times he and I have gone around and round about how to do something! I have thought many times that it would be better to bulldoze it and roll in a double wide!!
But now we so much into....money.....blood....sweat and tears!
And what are boys' high heels called??? One of life's mysteries!
