Big weekend at Team Wedding HQ: Chili and NFL wild card playoffs.
No. No, there's not a trace of sarcasm in that statement. That is what passes for a big weekend 'round here. We're easily entertained.
A snippet for you:
WHEN: Saturday evening
THE SCENE: Mr. J in his chair; me on my couch; Tilly running between the two spots hoping against hope that this will be the day someone sets one of those steaming bowls of smells-so-good down for her to dive in; on the tube, a promo for a new Jerry Seinfeld-produced show on NBC called "The Marriage Ref," in which a couple argues over the wife's insistence on keeping her first husband's fake leg. Don't believe me? See it for yourself here. But come back.
MR. J: "I'd like to think you'd make mine into a nice, tasteful planter."
ME: (mouth filled with chili) "Mmm-hmm-grbrbaw ... I was so getting ready to say just that ... Grbrbaw-hmmm-mmmm."
MR. J: "I thought so."
ME: (taking time to finish the next mouthful of chili) ... "Or a lamp."
MR. J: (thumbs-up)
So easily entertained.
