Do I get a mention on your blog for this or even a little something, something for this? This was Kevin this morning when he was supposed to be working from home waiting for the Canon online store to go back online to make sure that all the banners and such were working the way they should.
For weeks, he was supposed to do this work from home on this Saturday morning. Yesterday, those in charge at work, decided that it would happen at 9:30 am sharp, but of course 9:30 came and went.
I, of course, was at Saturday morning dance with the kids (it was 10:30 am), when this text message from Kevin comes in on my phone: “This was supposed to start at 9:30, but still waiting to Q & A the site.”
I respond, “That is crazy.”
Kevin says, “At least I am at home, but some of the others have been at the office since 4:30 am.”
I write, “That is just miserable.”
“Old baby bottles and the baby steamer, do you think big brother and big sister takes them?”, Kevin asks.
I am dumbfounded and respond: “I am not sure, why?”
Here was Kevin’s next retort, which definitely got my attention, “I am cleaning out the cupboards, because I am so bored.”
At this point, I am totally flabbergasted that he is truly this bored and actually resorting to cleaning anything, let alone the kitchen cabinets.
Of course, he is all so proud as a peacock at this point in the conversation. Once dance class is over and by the time I get home I clearly see why. His handiwork or should I say OCD has shown through completely. The pantry is as neat and tidy that you could practically eat off of it. Everything is so nicely put away and you can clearly see what is what in there. My kitchen cabinets now also pretty much the same deal.
Once I have time to digest this, Kevin turns to me and says the exact first sentence verbatim all tongue and cheek now.
Well, I have to say this, he did do a great job and wish he got bored more often. Maybe we could have the whole house look this clean and immaculate too. But alas this is a one time deal like Halley’s Comet and should just be happy that I got to witness this event in my lifetime. That said, here is his fifteen minutes of fame and shout-out on my blog!! As for the something-something, sadly he is still waiting for that. Oh well, 1 out of 2, isn’t bad!!
Now, I just couldn’t resist including Meatloaf’s “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad”. Yes I can count and I am off by a few numbers, but for some reason, I thought this song by the end of my post, so enjoy:
