This week, Meg isn’t amused about much of anything. Right now the plumber is still in her basement after his third visit this week. Meg has been unable to make herself all sparkly clean with the traditional daily hot shower, and it makes her profoundly unhappy to have stood under cold water for two days, because someone may as well have been water boarding her instead. She hopes she won’t have to flip out on Randy this morning. Meg’s husband saw her do a fake flip out * on someone the other day, and it scared him. He told her to hang up the phone immediately. Meg told her husband she would hang up her imaginary phone right away, so not to worry. (*A fake flip out is just when you talk to yourself and say all the things you want to say to someone and can’t. I highly recommend them for getting stuff off your chest).
In other news, Friday is April 1st and we all know that’s April Fools Day. After a long cold winter, Meg is finally throwing a wine tasting party. This bash is one she waited to plan and set a date for, because the winter weather were so bad for the past 2 months that it was impossible to plan anything. In an ironic twist of fate, a nor’easter is projected to dump snow upon us on April 1st, reducing Meg to:
“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”
The House at Pooh Corner
Now she has to watch tracks of weather and Doppler and pay attention to all the weather people that clearly have conspired against her, and can you feel another fake flip out that turns into a real one coming on?
Watching these babies plot to steal their Mom’s Haagen-Dazs and consume it all will be sure to bring a smile to even to most aggravated soul today:
Meg hopes that spreads cheer and brings on a warm front.
