Random rules

When the right hand does not know what the left is doing, the left hand will take advantage and will shut the right hand in a closet door.

If a husband is entrusted with laundry over a period of a week or more, he will economise by running the machine less often. One morning your daughter will run out of school dresses and your son will run out of school shorts.

The zip on any dress that cost less than half price will break the first time you wear it.

If you save time by dropping off a prescription before going to the supermarket with the plan of picking it up afterwards, you will waste even more time by forgetting it and having to go back to the shopping centre specifically for that one item.

If you let your daughter have nail polish on the grounds that she is now old enough and sensible enough not to paint the white carpet in her bedroom, she will paint the white carpet in her bedroom.

Wow, you're having quite a week there, oh Great Koala Queen.

If you're foolish enough to let people vote on your future, they actually will.

You're sure the red on the white carpet is nail polish, and your daughter hasn't been performing pet surgery or something in her room?

You're daughter has a white carpet in her room?

I'm having a bad laundry week myself. Washing machine went KAPUT! on Sunday night and I've been handwashing school uniforms and underwear ever since. The part that was ordered on Monday for next day delivery hasn't showed up yet and in the meanwhile the laundry is taking over the house. At least my children are remembering everything so I don't have to make constant journeys to their school. No - those kids are someone else's!

Happy Days!

The more important something is to you, the more likely your spouse will have put it away for safekeeping, and the less likely they will know what you're talking about when you ask them about it later. (Even the next day later.)

Here's hoping you have better days ahead. smiles

I can't even wear a white shirt, I can't imagine white carpeting.

or car door, as the first case may be....

Yes, quite the week.

Hm, re. pet surgery, haven't seen the dog for a while...

All upstairs carpet is white, because the people who owned the house before us put it in and we haven't replaced it yet. Thought we'd let the kids trash it first. Princess might be taking it a bit too literally.

BBJD, luckily my spouse is so messy that everything eventually turns up on his bedside table, under something else...

Whirl, glad to know somebody's house is messier than mine. And smelly.

BT, snot shows on everything, doesn't it?

LW, I don't understand!

Hey is this zoophobia?

;o)

Ouch, LW. I think car doors hurt much worse then closet doors. But they both hurt pretty bad.

Aw, McK. What an interesting set of circumstances to put into your next novel.

White carpeting? Oh my.

Now I understand LW's comment, Sarah!
