the hub, off to a golf tourney for a client today, emerged from the bedroom in a red polo and khaki shorts. i took one look and asked him with a totally straight face, "can you tell me where to find the q-tips?"
"how about finding me a mossimo dress in a size 4?"
[continued blank stare]
"ugh. okay. are you leaving for your second job at target?" finally, it sinks in. i get the side eye and he continues getting ready. so i call the kid over and ask her what the hub reminds her of this morning.
"i dunno, christmas?"
i tell her that i think he looks like a target employee. she sputters, cracks up, points and laughs a bit more, and goes back to her breakfast. i continue to laugh while the hub shoots me another "look" and goes about his business.
then, on the way to school, we're listening to an XM radio channel to some song i don't recognize. and as it plays, i ask the kid what it is.
"it sounds like john mayer, mom.""i swear, it sounds like he's singing "sandwich with meat today." don't you think so?"
she listens, and i get the side eye from her as she tells me "he's saying "say what you need to say," mom! you dork!"
soooo... my husband works at target, and john mayer is selling $5 foot-long sandwiches.
okay, i'm thinking that none of that was as funny typed out as it was to me at the time. i laughed all the way home. whatever!
i found a dress to wear to tomorrow's wedding at white house | black market. i had a coupon, and i'm actually satisfied with how i look in it. plus, it has pockets! so fun! i'm thinking i'll wear it with the kid's red shoes from last summer. and i'll get to wear it to the other wedding we're going to next month. whee!
i spent a good part of yesterday making mother's day cards. i even took pictures, but i'll have to post them later. right now, i'm trying to get the bean to eat her cereal.
mmmmmm. you want some, don'tcha?
