I'm trying to clean out my draft box so I think I'm going to post the action shots of my MIL swatting flies today.
It's not because I miss my MIL. It's because I miss poking my MIL in the eye. I miss being a wolf in sheep's clothing and cooing softly in her ear, "Oh my, what big eyes you have."
And then pouncing on her with my camera and my evil-mad-scientist cackle, "The better to poke you with my dear!"
I do kinda miss the good ole days when they were here--especially the good old days when they were here yet they weren't here, (if you catch my drift). I'm talking about the days when they moved out and stayed in an enchanted beach house full of rainbows and butterflies.
I'm not over-exaggerating, peeps. This was their view of them.
My hub and I would go to the enchanted beach house every day for lunch just to sit and watch the waves hula dance and the butterflies hula prance under the rainbows until we were sufficiently mesmorized.
Once we were under (the spell), my MIL would begin spinning stories over Subway sandwiches about their latest encounters with the rainbows and the butterfies.
I had no idea rainbows came in so many shapes and sizes--double wide load, extra thick and creamy, crisp and clean w/no caffeine.
One time my ILs were walking on the beach and they followed the rainbow all the way to the end. They actually found the end of the rainbow. And guess what was waiting there for them?
Nothing. NO pot of gold.
It was just them (and a girl in a bikini with the tighest abs they'd ever seen). The rainbow stopped right at their feet.
"WE are the pot of gold!" My MIL exclaimed.
I almost choked on my cold cut combo when she broke the news.
There was only one problem with their charmed life.
They say there is a fly in every ointment, and their ointment was no exception.
In fact, the only thing I ever saw them fist fight over was who who moved the fly swatter.
Honest to pete, they would get rough and tumble over it.
But I have to hand it to my MIL for how feircely protective she is of her husband. If a fly landed on him my MIL would grab that fly swatter and whack-a-mole the living life right out of it/him.
