Thoughts on the Weekend

  • Ever wonder why it costs so much to have someone come out and clean out your septic system?  It's expensive because it's worth it.  
  • Fact - Many pieces of a dishwasher are quite sharp
  • Fact - There are many nerve endings in a fingertip, and your left hand has five of them
  • Fact - If you slice open three out of the five fingertips on your left hand on parts of a dishwasher while in the presence of a four year old, you have to hold it in so as to not scare him or teach him any words that he shouldn't use.
  • The only thing better than finding $40 in the car that you forgot you had is finding three boxes of .45 ACP and a box of 9mm Makarov when you're cleaning up your basement.
  • Last night, I went to sleep alone in the bed.  This morning I woke up with an Irish Woman, a four year old child, two cats, and a Labrador Retriever.  I remember nothing.
  • I'm not sure what the incantation is, but the proper ingredients for a "Summon Deluge" spell appear to be washing your minivan and making plans to go to Knob Creek for the day.
  • Going to the Stop'n'Stab to get a soda 30 minutes prior to the Louisville/Kentucky basketball game was as close to a riot as I've seen in quite a long time.
  • The third time in an evening a parent has to go into his son's bedroom, extricate his son from whatever he's gotten himself tangled up in, remove 17 toys from his bed and put them away, return said child to bed, and go back to evening activities, he starts to become a little testy.

Nope, on the last one ... I work on the the theory that they made their bed so they get to lay in it. So far this has not killed them :)
