The past couple of blog posts have been grim. My father died this week and it has brought up a lot of emotions as death tends to do. I just want you all to know I haven’t lost my sense of humor.
A couple of days ago I was putting together memory boards for my father’s wake. It was an especially tricky task given the lack of actual memories and the scarce photos with the few that exist. I was struggling with this emotionally and I was a bit on edge. My husband also seemed a bit off so I checked in on him.
Me: You OK hon, you seemed pissed
Hubs: I just had to clean the damn toilet
Me: Um, OK….
Hubs: Would you like me to show you….
Me: No, I’m good.
Hubs: (proceeds with hand motions and visual cues) You just need to..
Me: No, just no.
Hubs: You always get pissed when I try…what you’re going to walk away now. I’m just saying I could show you…
Me: I KNOW HOW TO CLEAN A F*CKING TOILET OK!!!!!!!! (leaves the house, time for car line)
We wound up taking a walk and talking it out later that day. I got even in an unintentional, yet glorious way.
2 days later…
We have a dinner at my father’s GF’s house after the wake so I sent hubs to the liquor store to get some wine and rum. I told him to use his own judgement on the wine, the rum however was very specific. My siblings told me about a favorite rum of my father’s longtime partner. So I asked my husband go into a liquor store to get three bottles of wine and Big Black Dick, which is rum (maybe). And he did it because he loves me despite my inability to properly clean a toilet. Sadly there they were out of Big Black Dick.
