As with many of my weekend posts, I am going to half ass this one. Why? I only get about half the views and comments on weekends, so the post gets half the effort. Makes sense to me. In fact maybe this could end up being a series… Half Ass Weekends. I like it.
Today I just have a random experience to share with you. The other day I was getting ready to leave for work and I saw a lone, single Banana Nut Cheerio sitting on the couch cushion. The lady friend sometimes sits there with a bowl of cereal watching TV before leaving for work in the mornings. She leaves about 30 minutes before I do so she was already gone when I saw this. I grabbed the lonely Cheerio and threw it away. But I pulled out my phone and sent her a text:
“Just wondered if that random Cheerio left sitting on the couch was there for a reason? Maybe you forgot it? I saved it for you.“
To which she responded:
“Thank God you did. It was watching TV with me and I thought I had lost it. You are my Cheerio Hero. Where is your cape?”
I thought that was funny and couldn’t come up with an adequate response so I let it be.
This weekend the Lady Friend and I are going “out of town”. I use the quotes because we’re only driving about an hour down to a city in southern MN called Red Wing. They have a kick ass 100+ year old hotel there that I have stayed at a few times so it’ll probably be a nice
romantic weekend. I’ll try to snap a pic or two to share with all of you Simpletons.
Is it ok to refer to my followers as Simpletons? I am the Simple Dude after all. Plus I mean it with all the love and admiration possible. And only a wee bit of sarcasm there.
If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to check out my guest post over at Cinderita’s blog. It’ll make you a better person.
