"Captain Mom's" log...Stardate Every Summer!!!
Saturday morning in the kitchen: Fly buzzing around my head.
Me...."Why is the fly swatter not hanging in it's spot?"
Said fly continues annoying BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzing...and me... ducking, aimless swatting and mumbling, "I wish you would die already" under my breath.
So, I brew a nice pitcher of tea(iced tea on a hot muggy Oklahoma summer day makes things better)and go about my daily business.
Saturday noon back in the kitchen: Fly buzzing around my head. RRRGGGGGG!!! grumble@#$%&*!!!!!
Me..."Has anyone seen the fly swatter?"
Kids..."NOPE!" Hubby....."I never use 'em.....I roll up a towel or a paper and mid-air those suckers!"
Said fly...now smiling I believe....continues annoying BUZZZZZZZZZZZZzing. Me: still ducking, swatting and mumbling, "I wish you would die already" now out loud!
So, I add ice to the nice pitcher of tea and go about my daily business.
Saturday evening: Had fun at the grocery store with my husband. Came home to unload groceries in the kitchen. Fly buzzing around my head. RRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGG grumble@#$%^&*!!!!!!!!!! Me..."WHY DIDN"T WE BUY A FLY SWATTER AT THE STORE JUST NOW?"
I'll just sit down after dinner with Richard and a nice glass of iced tea in the other room, maybe the saddistc fly with leave me alone.
Made dinner (Jumbalaya mmmmm)while said fly continues his sociopathic behavior around my head. Me..."JUST DIE ALREADY!"
Cleaned up dishes, sat down to check emails and ministry blog and hear my daughter from the kitchen:
"Mom, I found it!"
Me...."THE FLY SWATTER?"
Daughter..."NOPE!" "THE FLY!"
Turns out it was a clinically depressed, suicidal fly...or at best a really bad swimmer.
Yep, Death by drowning....IN MY NICELY BREWED NEW PITCHER of ICED TEA!
Sometimes, we get exactly what we ask for....but it is not without sacrifice of something we really wanted.
Well I better go now...I need to brew some tea!
In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.
