Larry suggested the title for this post should be, “What Is Good For The Goose Isn’t Good For The Gander”.
What makes this pathetic, is that he’s referring to Diet Cokes.
Specifically, the Diet Cokes in our refrigerator.
It’s because he always drinks the open can…that I have opened. So when I go to the fridge to take a drink, the can I opened a couple of hours ago is 70% lighter. Yes, ma’am, that’s the kind of drama and intrigue you’ll find around here.
So when I
complained kindly suggested that he get his own next time, he was offended. Hence the goose and gander reference. Which, whatever. I mean I get what it means, but I’m not terribly sold on how it applies here.
Speaking of not being “sold”, I’m pretty much over Priceline.com. I’m in Greenville, South Carolina for the next few days, attending a blogging conference (Allume). Long story short, I couldn’t get a room at the conference hotel until tomorrow when the conference begins. So, in my newfound identity as a Money-Saving Pioneer Woman (I can’t even type that with a straight face…), I booked a hotel through Priceline. Larry has booked a few family trips through that website (he’s the Ultimate Negotiator, you know); and he’s always gotten great deals.
Well, he must have been somewhere drinking my Diet Coke when I booked this room. Because let’s just say this: the phone on the nightstand was probably made in the mid-80’s. And the AC unit is on the window. And the restroom looks like…well, it’s just gross.
And seriously. I am just as happy to stay in a Four Seasons as I am in the Holiday Inn. So this isn’t a snobby issue. I just prefer a modicum of cleanliness. And right now I can’t get that 20/20 episode about bed bugs out of my head.
Other than that. It’s great.
The good news is that I don’t think I contracted Ebola on the way here. There was a hacking cougher towards the back of the plane, but no one else seemed to be panicky. So I just tried my best to drown myself in hand sanitizer, and I didn’t even think about using the lavatory. Not even.
While we’re on the topic of Current Issues, seriously, what’s the deal with these wackos trying to jump the White House fences? I’ve never worked a security detail, but shouldn’t it be a bit more difficult to dupe our secret service? This kind of thing would never happen if Olivia Pope were a real person. But we won’t talk about Olivia today, because I’m now two episodes behind on Scandal.
I should probably wrap this up now, since I’ve obviously contributed a lot of value to your life already today. I mean, I know Dalke Family Diet Coke Drama keeps you on the edge of your seat and all…
Stay tuned…because you never know what kind of awesomeness will happen around here.
