4:37 am, my wife and I have been awake 17 minutes.

"I was thinking, if you're not going to use the grill until spring, we should move it in close to the house out of the weather"

"Yeah."
...
hmm?

It didn't seem a bit out of place until about 5 seconds after she said it. Initially it seemed perfectly normal to be having that... can it be called a conversation if I gave a one-word answer? Maybe not.

The (outdoor) grill is all wrapped up in a vinyl grill cover, except for the plastic wheels, which I suppose are exposed. I wasn't tracking well enough to point any of this out, which is probably a good thing. As to what made her think of it just then... I have no idea, but it seemed perfectly normal.

it's left to our imagination what were you doing awake in bed since 17 minutes, when she came out with that remark...

I might have been out of bed, showered, half-dressed, and shaving. Then again, maybe I wasn't. The imagination stories are usually better than was was.

it would have been far worse if while you two were involved in the middle or should I say apex of "early morning activity", she'd tell you to move the bbq out of the weather...

That's no time to be awake.

If you wake up at that time of the morning you have to be prepared for odd things to happen.

days we have to be at the office, we get up at 4:20 am to beat the worst of the Washington DC traffic nightmare, get to work before 6:30, and leave at 3 pm

fortunately, we only need to be in about 2 days a week on average

The question now is: will you actually remember to move the grill closer to the house? My problem with handy 'ideas' like that is that I say "yeah", and then completely forget.

MDA
27-01-2010, 22:27:41
haven't yet! :lol:

There's something wrong if you're not constantly being reminded what you didn't do yet.

MDA

She's working from home today, so it's almost certain she'll notice and "remind" me. Without nagging at all, nono.

mr_B
28-01-2010, 12:13:55
but on the other hand, it is a good idea

my question what keeps me awake the last days is: why can't she move that thing?

MDA
28-01-2010, 12:18:31
I know! It's on wheels, and the propane tank is empty!

I think somehow it has become "my grill" so I'm the one that moves it. Kind of like when the dog throws up on the carpet, he's "my dog".

"we" is married for "I'll only help if you're incapable of handling it on your own."

marriage is like learning a foreign language

So, I forgot. Then we got three feet of snow. She's been too classy to call me on it, or she's forgotten as well.

She will remind you at a more appropriate time.

that's not a bbq. that's a japanese car

MDA
11-02-2010, 22:05:37
Here's the japanese car, I haven't dug it out yet. Edit: and I can't seem to resize my pictures right

mr_B
11-02-2010, 22:09:26
Why didn't you move that grill?
I thought you would be the "all jesjes I will dear" guy after the winter/summer clothes.

still cracks me up

Not really the weather for barbecueing is it? I mean japanese caring.

The Japanese are beyond caring.

50 inches of snow in the last week, and I saw my first municipal snowplow come down the street today. One of the neighbors cleared a track out to the main road with his Bobcat, but that was about as far as you could get until the city trucks cleared the mains. I guess they passed us by all week because it looked good enough.

It's drifted and collapsed under its own weight most places, so I guess we've got about 2 1/2 feet of it. Haven't seen snow like this since I lived along Lake Erie. This is the first and only day this week the federal government has been open.

I want to make a big shark fin chasing terrified swimmersnowmen through the drifts, but my back is killing me from shoveling the driveway, sidewalks, and mail all week.

Why were you shoveling the mail?

OMG, the prefered the Olympic before the Zamboni because it's climate neutral

OMG

19-02-2010, 11:28:28
it's even more climate neutral because it doesn't move

mr_B

I guess Olympic will sell a few billions next year

Hey! A curling avatar.

I recently discovered that curling tickets are available at cost or discounted. Great times! Love those Norwegian pants.

It's already well into February. You may as well just leave it out until spring.
